The much-anticipated final episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones saga, which is famous for its unexpected plot twists, has apparently managed to surprise viewers with one final twist few would’ve expected in a medieval fantasy setting.
A number of keen-eyed members of the show’s audience spotted several plastic water bottles in the scene featuring a meeting between the show’s key characters.

It's not just there, I actually found the second water bottle next to Ser Davos. #GameOfThrones pic.twitter.com/rZHqiWmDU4— Bala Yogesh (@Yo_Bala) 20 мая 2019 г.
This discovery did little to lift the spirits of those of the show’s fans who seemed disappointed with how the series ended.

Proof that the quality of this show has gone down. First Starbucks, now a water bottle. Worst ending for the best show. #GoT #DemThrones pic.twitter.com/h64CEP8eER— Akber (@AkberFarooqui) 20 мая 2019 г.
Although they probably put it there to give people a reason the ONLY reason to rewatch the episode #gotfinalesucks #GameofThrones #GOTFinale pic.twitter.com/XVheQXaks5— Ray (@RayT824) 20 мая 2019 г.
Anyone defending this final season can’t deny it’s the laziest and most rushed of them all. In more ways than one. Clearly.— James H. Dargie (@JHDargie) 20 мая 2019 г.
Some also speculated that this blooper, just like the one before involving a Starbucks cup, might be part of a marketing strategy.
If you think they showed Starbucks and this water bottle by mistake, you are naive friends. Marketing strategies nothing more— Gaurav Gujjar (@Gauravgujjar007) 20 мая 2019 г.
And others just use this opportunity to have a good laugh.
