Looks like Daenerys will have to get your caffeine fix another way, as HBO has already digitally removed the coffee cup that was seen sitting in front of Emilia Clarke's character on Sunday's episode of "Game of Thrones."
A representative for the premium-cable channel told TheWrap Tuesday that the "latte" that was not meant to make it into Episode 804, "The Last of the Starks," has been edited out from the currently version available on HBO Go and will not be seen in any encore presentations, streaming on other platforms, in DVD sets, etc. going forward.
HBO got in on the joke yesterday after eagle-eyed fans spotted the out-of-place to-go cup with this statement: "The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."
