Game of Thrones might be over, but our thirst for more never seems to be quenched. Even HBO’s prequel confirmation doesn’t answer all the burning questions we still have about Westeros and Essos. Like, why did Jon Snow go north with the wildlings? Where’s Drogon? Where did the Dothraki go? And most importantly–where was the nearest Starbucks?
We don’t want to see Khaleesi when she hasn’t had her morning Pumpkin Spice Latte, do you?
On Wednesday night, Emilia Clarke stopped by The Tonight Show (weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET) to chat with Jimmy Fallon about that infamous Starbucks coffee cup that made it into an actual episode of GoT without a single prop master or assistant director noticing until the air date. How was this even possible? Who was responsible? And can we get a dragon to mess with the culprit a bit?
Back in May, Sophie Turner (AKA Sansa Stark) came in hot with the accusations, pointing out that since the cup was in front of Emilia, she was clearly responsible. Jimmy played the clip back for Emilia, who nearly flipped his desk in mock frustration. “Here’s the truth!” she exclaimed, “We had a party before the Emmys and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varys, who’s sitting next to me in that scene, pulls me aside and says, ‘I gotta tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine!’”
“He admitted it?” Jimmy gasped.
She continued, “He said, ‘I think it was, I’m sorry darling, I didn’t want to say anything because the heat was very much on you.’ And I was like, WHAT?”
Such betrayal! We should get Drogon to punish him by … wait, never mind.
Luckily, everyone in the cast is still BFFs, despite the controversy that could have torn them apart. Jimmy showed a recent photo of Emilia, Kit Harington, and Jason Momoa, all smiles in a group hug at Emilia’s birthday party. When Jimmy asked what goes on during a night out with those two mega-hunk-smokeshows, Emilia took the opportunity to roast their dance moves.
Kit, she explained, does a kind of shoulder-bop move which she called “a little bit poncy.” For the non-Brits in the audience, she clarified poncy might be defined as “douchey.”
Dang Khaleesi, that’s cold.
As for Momoa, apparently that tall, barefoot, long-maned drink of water goes full Hawaiian, “where he picks up the dancefloor and throws it!” she laughed. You know what, with his broad shoulders, we can actually picture him doing that.
