The producers of Game of Thrones are tired. They’ve been at this shit since 2011. Sure, we’ve only gotten 8 seasons in as many years (Tyra Banks is NOT impressed), but it’s a lot of hours of television to produce. We shouldn’t be surprised that they’re getting sloppy as they approach the finish line. When season 8, episode 4 (“The Last of The Starks“) aired last week, raven-eyed viewers spotted a Starbucks cup sitting on the table in front of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and the internet screamed CONTINUITY ERROR. Everybody knows the last Starbucks in Westeros (located next to the gift shop at the east corner of The Wall) burned down in season 7. HBO rushed to digitally erase it, but the damage was already done. People now know GOT isn’t a documentary as it was previously assumed to be. And there was another error related to last night’s penultimate episode.
*Spoilers for episode 5, “The Bells“, ahead.
This time, HBO released a promo shot of Jamie and Cersei Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Lena Headey) serving Flowers in The Attic realness with a loving embrace. Only one problem (besides the incest, and Jamie having reverted back to being a garbage human being undeserving of love after leaving MY QUEEN, ok MY KNIGHT Brienne of Tarth with a freshly popped cherry, sobbing in the snow wearing a nothing but a housecoat and slippers) was, Jamie’s right hand was somewhere it shouldn’t be. It was on Cersei’s butt. But it should have been a dire wolf Milkbone by now, because it got chopped off way back in season 3.

Oops. Jamie usually wears a golden fisting glove where his hand once was. Maybe it was at the cleaners? Well, if you think of GOT as a marathon, and you know anything about marathons, you know that runners often shit themselves in the home stretch. That’s seems to be what’s happening here. GOT is hobbling into the finale with bloody blisters (Cersei, presumably, dying in the arms of her lover) and shit running down its leg (Jon Snow’s perpetual “I smell a fart” face). It may not be pretty, or satisfying, but it’s going to cross tape one way or another.
Don’t believe me? Take it from the Mother of Dragons herself.
