Sophie Turner Knows Exactly Who to Blame for Game of Thrones’ Errant Cup

We hope Game of Thrones’ coffee cup was at least able to get its SAG card following the anachronistic hullabaloo surrounding episode four, which, for people unaware, accidentally televised this very un-Winterfellian object resting on a table. (The cup has since been removed for all future airings.) Sophie Turner was more than happy to do some grunt work for Jimmy Fallon while swinging by his show last night, and her investigation came back conclusive: That damn Mother of Dragons was to blame! “We all have the same cups for all of our water and tea and everything, so look who it’s placed in front of,” Turner said, pointing to her pal Emilia Clarke. And because we know you’re curious, of course the cast noticed the cup when the episode aired. “There was one text, and it was from Nikolaj Coster-Waldau,” she added. “He just wrote, ‘Great episode. Is that a coffee cup?’” Indeed so.
