You must be joking. Coffee cup-gate 2.0 hit King’s Landing in the series finale of Game of Thrones. This time, a water bottle made a surprise cameo behind Samwell Tarly’s foot during the meeting of the minds post-Dany’s assassination. As if we weren’t exhausted enough by this season…
No matter how you’re feeling after watching the finale of the show (that we blame our anxiety on), everyone can agree that the entire last season felt a bit rushed. The blatant presence of the coffee cup back in Episode 4 was the physical evidence we needed to prove that point. And now a water bottle pops up in the series finale? What gives?
And to make matters worse, there were actually two water bottles hidden in plain sight within this scene. We’re…sigh.
Listen, we get that it was probably hot AF on location in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where the cast and crew filmed this scene. And we totally get that hydrated actors are pertinent to the show’s success; those heavy costumes don’t help matters in the slightest.
However, we must wonder, just as we did with the coffee cup scandal: How many eyes watched this scene play out before it got to air? And how many people were actually on set, yet didn’t think to remove the water bottles from the scene before the camera rolled?
It’s all become too much for us to bear. Thank goodness it’s finally over.

At this point, we can only hope the thing was left there on purpose.

I bet they hid coffee cups and water bottles in every episode. We just have to find them 👀— Ophelia (@HospitalCoffee_) May 20, 2019
The bottle stands for a great house, and it's here to claim the throne— Perfectly normal (@EvanAniston) May 20, 2019
We’re tired and emotionally tapped out. Let the Game of Thrones creators have their water bottles. We don’t think we can handle another Twitter storm of ice and fire (and beverages).
