Game of Thrones fans were left heartbroken by the brutal and unflinching death of one of Daenerys Targaryen's closest and fiercest allies in "The Last of the Starks"-and so were the cast". The latest update comes courtesy of Emilia Clarke, who has posted her own response to it on Instagram.

Game of Thrones, which first began its iconic eight-season run on Sunday, April 17, 2011, will wrap up its final season on Sunday, May 19, 2019.

"Clarke, with cup in hand, added the hashtags to her photo "#forthethrone" and "#forthecaffeine".

Yep, almost a week on, that rogue Starbucks cup is still getting plenty of air time. It's even got this post-hook of drums - I wanted them to sound like Dothraki drums.

But the online frenzy mostly assumed it was a cup from Starbucks, which was happy to play along with the buzz.

The Cocteau had previously held free screenings of the season premiere and finale episodes of Game of Thrones, most recently with the Season 8 premiere.

Taylor Swift, 29, is back with a new album, and while that's exciting in and of itself, we're also freaking out over the fact that she's a huge Game Of Thrones fan.

Clarke, like any self-respecting English person, much prefers a cup of tea. After speeding through the battle against the Night King and his forces, and having Euron Greyjoy unceremoniously take down Rhaegal because Dany "forgot" about the Iron Fleet as she went south, we'll just have to see what this battle in Episode 5 looks like.

"I'll bet it was Liam".

"It's impossible to put a real figure on how much free advertising Starbucks gets out of the situation, but it's in a totally different category than product placement because it was accidental, which makes it more valuable... Plus this one will live on as a meme, so I guess you could say it's a gift that will keep on giving".
