Fans spotted two water bottles in 'Game of Thrones' series finale, say its like 'Starbucks cup' all over again
The last time a modern invention made its way to the show, the audience couldn't stop talking about it and now with the bottles in the shot, Twitter has hailed it as Watergate 2019.
(Spoilers for season 8 episode 6)
After the coffee cup fiasco, 'Game of Thrones' has done it again, this time with not one but two bottles of water.
Eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot a bottle of water tucked behind Maestor Samwell Tarly's leg in the final episode of the show. When the council is being held by the heads of all houses and Tyrion's telling everyone how Bran should be king, if you look closely, you'll see a bottle chilling behind Sam's legs, probably happy about its cameo.
"First Starbucks now a water bottle this show is a joke," one fan tweeted in disappointment, while another said, "Even the most important lords of the seven kingdoms need to stay hydrated." Another fan said, "When the writers just want to get over the show and leave a water bottle in the scene #GameOfThrones #starbuckscup all over again." Twitter has hailed it as the Watergate 2019. "Guess Sam is against the environment with his Crystal Geyser water bottle," a Twitter fan pointed out. "Game of Thrones caught red handed AGAIN, falling all of its fans, and I’m not talking about the disappointing ending; a water bottle behind Sams leg made it in the shot," another fan tweeted.
A second bottle was spotted behind Ser Davos in the same scene.
The last time a modern invention made its way to the show, the audience couldn't stop talking about it. After the braves fight the Battle of Winterfell, the celebrations were underway. On the table, among the wine goblets, was a styrofoam cup sitting right next to the now dead Mother of Dragons. Viewers hailed it as "Dany’s Starbucks".
At the time, HBO brushed it off as a joke. "The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake," the network said in a tweet, "Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea." However, this isn't the first time that something odd has happened in the show. Season 3 episode 'Walk of Punishment' concluded with an entirely out-of-context rock song which triggered a similar reaction.
The showmakers have a lot of explaining to do now.
