It’s safe to say that HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones isn’t concluding too smoothly.
Several blunders have been discovered since the beginning of season eight, ranging from ‘Daenerys Targaryen’s changing wigs to a ridiculously dark episode to coffee cup-gate and a major continuity error, which begs the question: could there possibly be more gaffes on the way?
The answer is yes. To promote the season’s fifth episode, ‘The Bells’, HBO teased a picture of ‘Jaime Lannister’ hugging his twin sister ‘Cersei’. All seems good and well—perhaps a little too well. Fans have noticed that ‘Jaime’s hand, which he lost in season three, is now intact.
From seasons three through eight, he went around with a gold prosthetic hand, so the appearance of a perfectly whole limb has certainly thrown audiences off.
“How did my man ‘Jaime’ grow his right hand back?” asks YouTuber MrDalekJD.
“We kind of forgot ‘Jaime’ lost his right hand in season three,” jokes Twitter user ‘Hemswobrien’, to which ‘crzydemona’ chimes in, “How else is he going to hold his Starbucks?”
Luckily, the blunder isn’t taking away too much of what’s left of Game of Thrones’ dignity. TIME explains that the mistake is limited to a promotional picture, and ‘Jaime Lannister’ sports his gold hand in all its glory in the episode.
According to BuzzFeed News, the television network has removed the offending image from its website, but fans can still revel in the error, reuploaded by social media users, below.
