The coffee cup seen 'round the world caused such a stir HBO felt the need to issue a statement on the subject. Here's what they said:

"In response to inquiries from those who saw a craft services coffee cup in Sunday night's episode . . . The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake.  Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."

If only there was an Emmy category for Best Sense of Humor, Network because HBO would have that one on lock. And now we know it wasn't even a Starbucks cup! No matter because the coffee company couldn't be more pleased with all the free publicity someone has valued at $11.6 million.
