Meanwhile, the creators David Benioff and DB Weiss joked about the scene. They said that when it comes to Persian rugs, it is ‘tradition’ to ‘make a mistake’.

David, while speaking to Japan’s Star Channel said that when Persian rugs are madeit’s a tradition that you make a mistake, and since “only God can do anything perfect, it (the cup) was our mistake.” To which, Dan joked that this is the reason they put the coffee cup there. He added that this was the “Conscious, concerted statement of our imperfection”.

Furthermore, David revealed what actually transpired and why the cup was left there. He said that the crew was so focused on Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) that they completely forgot it was there.

Also, he admitted that initially, it was an ‘embarrassment’, and they were astonished how no one noticed the cup. But he later found it ‘funny’.
