- The “Game of Thrones” series finale, “The Iron Throne,” aired on Sunday.

“Game of Thrones” season eight was divisive and full of shocking twists, but perhaps one of the biggest controversies was a lone coffee cup left on a table on episode four, “The Last of the Starks.”
Fans spotted another modern-day item on the finale, “The Iron Throne,” which aired Sunday. Plastic water bottles could be seen at the feet of Ser Davos (played by Liam Cunningham) and Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) during one of the most important scenes of the episode.
Around the 49-minute mark, just as Tyrion Lannister is about to make a case for Bran Stark to be made king, a panning shot of the lords and ladies of Westeros shows a plastic water bottle hiding behind the legs of Ser Davos.
Do you spot it?
Here’s another shot of a different plastic water bottle hiding in plain sight at Samwell’s feet around the 46-minute mark.
And here it is in motion, as captured by INSIDER streaming via HBO Now on Sunday evening.
In a season criticised by some fans as lacking attention to detail, these modern-day additions were emblematic to some of a rushed series finale. Fans on Twitter saw the water bottle and immediately shared photos and videos of it.

The water bottles are another example of a modern-day beverage receptacle appearing on screen this season.
The coffee cup on episode four made waves on the internet, becoming a viral sensation. Sophie Turner (who plays Sansa Stark) jokingly blamed Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), who denied it. The HBO craft-services cup was mistaken for a Starbucks cup and earned an estimated $US2 billion in free publicity for Starbucks.
HBO didn’t immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment on the water bottles.
