The coffee cup incident that took place in the Game of Thrones episode “The Last of the Starks” prompted both memes and annoyance from viewers who wondered how a modern coffee cup from craft services could have gone unnoticed during filming. HBO noted that the cup was a mistake and digitally removed it from the show. But now, eagle-eyed fans have discovered another blunder.

Promotional photos for last night’s episode, “The Bells,” show Jaime Lannister is hugging his sister Cersei. Fans immediately noticed something wrong: Jaime lost his hand in Season 3, and replaced it with a golden hand. But in the photo, in the place of his golden hand was a real one, making for a very obvious fail.

After the coffee cup debacle, fans are far less forgiving about this mistake. Many have taken to social media to complain about the show's carelessness, while others pointed out that the mistake was not found in the episode, but just in the promo photo.

With one more episode of Game of Thrones left, we’re hoping no other silly mistakes are discovered. We have other things to worry about.
