One might wonder how Daenerys Targaryen keeps up with her daily schedule of tending to her dragons, plotting to dethrone Cersei, and putting up with the fact that she shagged her own nephew. Turns out, she prepares for all that with a nice and warm coffee cup from Starbucks– as seen in the latest episode of HBO‘s Game of Thrones.
We’re not kidding. Some eagle-eyed fans spotted a coffee cup near Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) in episode 4 of season 8. Since everything shown in the final cut of the Game of Thrones episodes is supposedly canon, then that is now part of the show and part of the lore, it is known:
That right there is the coffee cup of Daenerys Targaryen, First of her Name, the rightful Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men, Breaker of Chains, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, The Unburnt, The Queen Across The Sea, Mother of Dragons, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea… Drinker of the Grande Latte.
That was quite exhausting, and it’s probably what’s written in the coffee cup too. Also, it’s probably the reason Emilia Clarke had to drink her coffee on set, Starbucks might have taken too long to assemble her order because of all the titles.
In all seriousness, it’s not clear who the Starbucks coffee cup belonged to, and props to Emilia Clarke and everyone on the scene for not getting too distracted with an alluring beverage. It’s not clear what kind of coffee it was either or whether it was a lazy product placement for Starbucks. We will never know as No One was laying claim to it.
