While “Coffeegate” was slowly simmering down, Game of Thrones has served up yet another sizzling mistake.
Fresh off the appearance of a coffee cup in Episode 4 – a rarity in Winterfell – the final season of HBO’s hit fantasy drama has been hit with yet another editing blunder.
Jaime Lannister’s severed hand has miraculously grown back in a promo image from the fifth episode.
Back in season three, the ‘Kingslayer’ had to relearn his swordsmanship after having his right hand chopped off.
However, a shot from Jaime and Cersei’s final scene appears to contradict this.
In response, a HBO rep has revealed that Jaime’s right hand did not appear in the actual episode, despite popping up in a photo distributed by the show’s digital team.
Understandably, fans were not happy.
A random coffee cup was left around the set of episode four.
Episode five: Jaime’s hand grows back.

Jamie Lannister magically has his right hand, in last night’s episode of #GameOfThrones … I imagine he needs that hand, to hold his Starbucks.#GameofThronesseason8episode5 pic.twitter.com/JbYWYMHtMv
