GOT messes up again: Jaimie Lannister grows his hand back in new image for Episode 5. The mistake comes right after the Starbucks cup gaff.
In an image for Sunday night’s Episode 5 of Game of Thrones, titled ‘The Bells’, Jaimie Lannister, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, is seen embracing Cersei, played by Lena Headey. Fans of the show immediately noticed that his right hand, which is supposedly lost in Season 3, was left out in editing.
The mistake comes fresh on the heels of the infamous Starbucks coffee gaffe, where fans noticed a coffee cup sitting in front of Daenerys , played by Emilia Clarke, in one scene. HBO addressed the mistake with the statement, “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”
After noticing Lannister’s hand, fans immediately started bashing show-runners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff for the mistake, with one writing, “Jaime’s hand magically healed in Episode 5. As if we needed any more proof D&D simply stopped caring about GoT a log [sic] time ago.”
Another fan wrote, “How else is he going to hold his Starbucks?” Another sarcastically said, “things seem to grow and appear on this series, lets see next week if there is a baby someone left behind on the set with blonde hair.” Yet another wrote, “So this is really just some hot fuckin nonsense then. Alright well I’m done.”
Others did not care much about the small mistake, with one writing, “Oh the horror!!!!! Who gives a sh*t, what are you guys watching in slow mo to catch little sh*t like this.” Another wrote, “You are a loser if you care about this tbh.”
The next episode of Game of Thrones airs on Sunday.
