Uh, Is That a Hand? Mistakes Eagle-Eyed ‘Game of Thrones’ Fans Have Caught

Everyone makes mistakes — even the team behind Game of Thrones. While the Starbucks cup snafu was one of the latest, it definitely wasn’t the first. And with only one episode left, it may not be the last.

However, no matter what the show does, fans will come for it on social media. Many have spoken out about the final episodes and the decisions the writers have made; some even created a petition for HBO to remake the final six episodes. “David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” the petition reads. “The series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

Regardless of the mistakes, not everyone agrees. Riverdale star Lili Reinhart made a comment on Variety‘s Instagram post about the petition. “This is not how television works,” the actress, 22, wrote. “TV shows are not fan service. It’s ridiculous of people to think they can demand creative change from artists.”

Despite fans butting heads, one thing is for sure: Only Eagle-eyed fans caught these major mistakes. Scroll through the gallery below to see more.

Coffee or Tea?

During the fourth episode of season 8, a Starbucks cup was spotted in front of Emilia’s Clarke’s character. HBO responded to the flub in a statement: “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”

A New Hand?

Did Jaime Lannister’s hand grow back? After episode 5 of the final season, fans posted a photo of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau‘s character hugging Cersei (Lena Headey) on Twitter. Oddly enough, his right hand looked normal, despite the fact that it was cut off during season 3 and replaced with a gold hand. However, some claim the grabs on Twitter were fake — and if you rewatch the episode, you’ll see that the still wasn’t even part of the episode.

Wardrobe Change

During a rewatch of the series, one fan noticed that in the background of the series premiere, a man is walking around wearing (gasp!) jeans.

Blood Pump

In season 5, when Stannis Baratheon was dying and leaning up against a tree, a pump and wire were shown, most likely used to pump the fake blood out of his leg.

A Changing Mark

Jon Snow may be alive and well (for now), but in season 6, two of his three scars were gone, and the third was shaped very differently.

Where’s the Necklace?

During the final season, Melisandre revealed that if she took off her necklace, she would die. Oddly enough, during season 4, she took a bath … and did not have a necklace on.

 

Game of Thrones‘ final episode airs on HBO Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
