Game of Thrones has had a tumultuous final season with negative critiques about the writing and how the plotline is being rushed in Season 8. Then there have also been obvious errors, blunders and continuity problems that made it to the hit HBO TV show. We’ll check out the 14 worst mistakes in Game of Thrones that are so obvious after you see them.
It was only a week ago when the Game of Thrones faux pas of a Starbucks coffee cup sitting in plain view of a scene that is supposed to be in a medieval-era fantasy world. HBO immediately digitally removed the coffee cup from the episode and apologized for the blunder. The gaffe gave Starbucks an estimated $11 million of free publicity.
Here are some of the other biggest Game of Thrones gaffes from earlier.
In Season 1, there was an extra caught wearing jeans and a “Patagonia jacket” during a scene with Jaime Lannister.
In Season 1, the opening credits showed that actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, belonged to House Targaryen and not House Stark.
In Episode 10 of Season 1, one of the decapitated heads on a spike in the Red Keep was a George W Bush mask.
In Season 2, Tyrion Lannister did a napkin magic trick as it was tucked into his armor, then in his lap, then back in his armor, and then on the table.
In Season 4, Melisandre takes off her magic necklace and doesn’t show her true age, but in Season 8 she took off her necklace and she died.
In Season 5, there was a laptop power cable seen in the shot with Stannis Baratheon dying.
In Season 5’s episode Unbowed, Unbent Unbroken, Nymeria Sand attempts to capture Myrcella. She is holding a whip in her right hand, but seconds later it somehow transforms into a twisted dagger.
In Season 5, Ser Jorah Mormont goes to rescue Daenerys Targaryen and helps her down with his hand that is infected with the very contagious greyscale disease.
In Episode 4 of Season 5, Ser Barristan Selmy died while battling the Sons of Harpy. There were many dead Unsullied and Sons bodies strewn across the floor, but as the camera pans away there seem to be fewer cadavers in the shot.
In Episode 2 of Season 6, Jon Snow suddenly had two scars magically disappear and his third scar changed shape.
In Episode 9 of Season 6, Jon Snow rode into the Battle of the Bastards with a floppy rubber sword. The strongest material in all of the Seven Kingdoms — Valyrian Rubber.
In this scene from Episode 6 of Season 3, Tormund and Orell completely vanished from The Wall so that Jon Snow and Ygritte could enjoy a romantic makeout sesh.
In Episode 4 of Season 8, Game of Thrones fans were confused as to why the entire landscape and geography around King’s Landing changed from mountainous to desert-like. In the opening credits, they literally moved the million-person city of King’s Landing and it’s somehow now landlocked.
