And now the saga has taken another twist after the alleged culprit denied responsibility for the incident that caused a stir in social media during the show's final series.
Emilia Clark, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, accused co-star Conlet Hill of admitting to a false trip last month.
But Hill, who plays Lord Varys on the series, told British TV Channel 4 on Sunday: "You know, there's no proof I did. So I blame it far."
"I'll have to have Mr. Mann's hands in order to leave a coffee cup there," Hill added. "I took a bullet for Emilia Clark and she reached out to me."
"Mr Men" is a series of British children's books, one of which includes a character with extraordinary hands.
Hill also joked: "I just don't make comments until I have a lawyer, that is," and refuse that the slip "was definitely not a product placement."
The drama over a coffee cup – spotted by spectators with an eagle-eyed table in Winterfell's grand hall – briefly overshadowed the Battle of Iron. section of the show, with fans making fun of the bug and requiring showrunners to spill the details of who is responsible.
Clark earlier seemed to put the mystery in bed, telling Jimmy Fallon last month: "We recently had a party before Emis and Conlett, who plays Varis, who sits next to me in this scene, he's pulling me aside and he's like," Emilia, I have to tell you something, love. The coffee mug was mine. "
It seems certain, though the cup is flat white size not purchased in Vasteras, predicted e lack of a mythical continent of coffee chains.
HBO reacted deftly to the incident at the time, saying on Twitter: "Latte, who appeared in the episode, was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered herbal tea. "
