Remember how obsessed we all were over the Case of the Game of Thrones Coffee Cup back in May? Well, rest easy, people: We finally have some answers.
If you need a refresher on the situation, here you go: In one of the episodes from Game of Thrones‘s final season, fans noticed an errant coffee cup placed next to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), which was an obvious anachronistic mistake.
People were outraged that a show with such a massive budget could miss something so glaring—but, hey, people are human and they need their caffeine on long shoots.
People blamed Clarke, Sophie Turner, and Kit Harington at various times. “I hear this every day of my life. This coffee-cup thing,” Turner said in an interview on Conan back in June. “It’s good to know the coffee cup got more press than the final season altogether. The coffee cup was where Kit’s chair was. At first I blamed it on Emilia, but I don’t think Emilia would do that. Kit is lazy, and I think he would’ve done that. It was in front of Kit’s chair and then, obviously, he moved so this picture was taken, and it looked like it was in my seat. But I wasn’t there, either. It was Kit. It was 100 percent Kit.”
Yet, the mystery remained unsolved. But on last night’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Clarke put the questions to rest for good.
“Here’s the truth: We had a party before the Emmys recently and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varys—who’s sitting next to me in that scene—he pulls me aside and he’s like, ‘Emilia, I have got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine,’” she said.
“It was his! It was Conleth’s coffee cup! He said so,” she continued. “He said, ‘I think it was. I am sorry, darling. I didn’t want to say anything because it seemed the heat was very much on you.’”

There you have it, everyone. I’d still probably blame it on Bran, but that’s just me.
