Nathalie Emmanuel grateful for 'Game of Thrones' support — SPOILER ALERT

Crew on-set failed to notice that someone had left a Starbucks-looking coffee cup on a table in the middle of a set

Social media lit up with stills of a coffee cup - that looked to many to have the iconic Starbucks ($NASDAQ:SBUX) logo on its side - sitting on a table in front of Queen Daenerys.

Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 5 is slated to premiere Sunday, May 12, at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.

Although it's unclear what editing software was used to take out the coffee cup of dragons, Adobe tweeted Monday how it was able to edit out the problem with its software.

If you're caught up, you can read our review of Episode 4 and see a rundown of the episode's Easter eggs and references like this that you might have missed.

"Starbucks cup mystery solved. But I just wanted it to be really cool and a moment that people remember", the star said.

"Starbucks, send us money!" he added, doubling down on the joke.

Whether you consider the painful plot points to be an intentional punch in the gut or a misfire on a storytelling level, there was one gaffe we can all agree was a straight up MISTAKE.

HBO took the onslaught of memes in good humour, acknowledging the error with a tweet from the official Game of Thrones account. "News from Winterfell. The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake". "Daenerys had ordered a herbal tea". As with many facets of a big-budget production, the responsibility falls on the shoulders of many.

We're nearing the end of Game of Thrones.

"Our on-set prop people and decorators are so on it 1,000%", she said. But, yeah. We're sorry! She also joked that Westeros was the first place to have Starbucks, calling it a "little-known fact".

Another day, another compelling Game of Thrones theory. "Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to play this part... this life changing part... there are too many to list..."

Emmanuel discussed Missandei's death in an interview with Entertainment Weekly conducted prior to the episode, saying she thought it was "a fantastic scene".

Game of Thrones is an HBO original, so anyone without HBO will have to get access to the premium cable channel to watch.
