Two years of production and Game of Thrones still included a Starbucks cup in the latest episode
The Long Night definitely wasn't too dark and there is a Starbs drive-thru in Winterfell
The Game of Thrones showrunners have been on the receiving end of a fair amount of abuse recently.
A cinematographer on the show actually came out to defend episode three of season eight, 'The Long Night,' after it received an avalanche of criticism for being too dark to watch.
I think it was a defence mechanism against torrenting and illegal streams but we'll save that fan theory for Reddit.
So it is not ideal timing for the show that in the most recent fourth episode a Starbucks cup was seemingly left in shot, causing people to rightly wonder: what on Earth were the showrunners doing for two years to make only six episodes and yet forget to turn up the brightness and also remove coffee cups from set?
Winterfell really got the first Starbucks in history. Crazy. pic.twitter.com/abslRqwZKr

The fact that there was a Starbucks cup in tonight’s Game of Thrones that no producers or editors noticed throughout multiple cuts merely 1 week after the DP yelled that the show’s not too dark to see is truly *chef’s kiss*
