*That* Game Of Thrones Starbucks Cup Was Probably Sophie Turner’s
There’s no effing way the barista at Starbucks can spell “Daenerys Targaryen,” (I, personally, had to double-check using Google), but the Protector of the Seven Kingdoms needed a caffeine boost after Arya Stark killed the Night King, and amongst all of the tin beer pitchers and mugs, you can spot a rogue paper Starbucks mug on the table during the celebration feast at Winterfell. There seems to be a bit of confusion on whether it was Jon Snow or Dany sipping on a hot latte while all their Brethren were getting turnt, but judging from how drunk Jon was later on the episode, and Dany definitely not seeming hungover the next day, our money was initially on the Queen.
That is until Twitter brought #TheReceipts and realized it could’ve been Sansa Stark‘s coffee mug — and this whole thing was a plan to cast doubt on Dany’s ability to lead because you should never trust a B— who’s drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes to lead a whole kingdom. It’s f*cking genius.
In all seriousness, the photo showed Sophie Turner on set taking a photo with Bella Ramsey, who plays Lyanna Mormont. It’s definitely possible that they had some poor PA grabbing coffee for the whole crew — meaning there may’ve been many GOT cast members running around with the now-infamous cup-seen-’round-the-world, but we like the sabotage explanation best so that’s the one we’re going with.
Is it me or did Sansa plant the Starbucks cup in front of Dany as part of an elaborate plan to take her down? ? pic.twitter.com/O4tvoiyDxd

Damn, Twitter’s going to be so boring once this show is over.
