Do you see what I see?? A cup full of mead?! Nah fam, that’s your Starbucks order…hope it was a good one HBO. Whatever, I don’t care. I still love Game of Thrones minus that oversight, which I’m still baffled how that made it through a crew of editors. BUT, Starbucks clearly won this situation.

The internet had a field day, and Starbucks came out on top, so Drinkcarys and stop complaining..enjoy what’s left of the series!
