When you play the game of thrones, you stay hydrated or you die.
Two weeks after an errant coffee cup showed up in the fourth episode of “Game of Thrones”‘ final season, Sunday’s series finale had double the anachronisms in the form of two plastic water bottles. Unlike the coffee cup that was in plain sight on a table in front of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), these bottles were less conspicuous, but eagle-eyed fans quickly spotted them.
You can see the first one at 46:19, when Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) is being escorted by Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) to appear before Westeros’ council. The bottle is peeking out from behind the left foot of Samwell (John Bradley). The second bottle pops up in the same scene at 49:05 behind Ser Davos’ (Liam Cunningham) chair.
Who knew Westeros had Evian? Or is it Dasani? Listen, we’re sure long, tedious discussions about the future of the Seven Kingdoms — especially before Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) of all people is made king — will leave one parched, but be eco-friendly and get rid of those bottles! Does Westeros recycle? Maybe Tyrion can make the council implement a system now.
But really, this is on the post-production teams. This is the most scrutinized show in the world and y’all let this go out into the world without another editing pass? But these gaffes are just symbolic of how rushed and messy this final season was.
Last time, HBO responded to the coffee flub with a joke: “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.” It later digitally removed the cup from online versions and future airings of the episode. As of press time, HBO has not acknowledged the bottles.
