Coffee cup in 'Game of Thrones' scene perks up viewers

Coffee cup in 'Game of Thrones' scene perks up viewers

Sophie Turner is pointing fingers in the recent "Game of Thrones" coffee-cup controversy! Again, RIP. But as Turner very clearly explained, said picture was captured a whole episode ago.

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the beloved HBO series, was at the Toyota Center on Friday night to catch Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals.

Sophie was stunned when the host Jimmy Fallon dug out two photos of her holding the same cup while posing alongside Bella Ramsey.

To me, it's unclear if Emilia Clarke is saying she wore armor at some point or if it's an offhand comment by Nathalie Emmanuel.

HBO have since digitally removed the offending cup but this being Game of Thrones people want someone's head to roll. It happens in the scene when he goes to hug Cersei shortly before they both die.

The Miami Herald and the ABC-TV affiliate both quoted witnesses as saying the injured woman is rapper NBA Youngboy's girlfriend. It adds to a lengthy rap sheet for Kapri, 21, whose initial appearance was scheduled for Monday in federal court in Miami.


Speaking on HBO's Game of Thrones Inside the Episode post-episode feature, Benioff and Weiss chalked up Dany's decision to torch King's Landing and its innocent citizens to a sense of loneliness.

In her final attempt to take the heat off of herself, she turned to Emilia, who was actually part of the scene in question playing the role of Daenerys Targaryen.

Jacob Anderson - who's known for playing Grey Worm in Game of Thrones - joined the coffee cup-gate debate, with Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp. According to Turner, only Jaime Lannister actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau sent out a group text to confirm its wild existence. The only problem being that no one knows for certain who the coffee cup culprit was.

"Did I just stumble upon the truth here?!" she wrote.

On how she switches off from being one of the biggest stars on television, she added: "When I watch something, it's escapism".
