Remember the coffee cup that set the internet aflame after sharp-eyed observers noticed it sitting there on the Game of Thrones set, chilling next to Dany and Jon? Sure you do. Shortly thereafter, Sophie Turner appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and tried to blame the cup on Emilia Clarke. Honestly, is there a better burn than ratting someone out on national television when they’re not there to defend themselves? There is not.

But Clarke appeared on Fallon’s show on Wednesday to set the record straight. (Or probably to promote her new film, Last Christmas, but I choose to believe she was there strictly on coffee cup-related business.)


“Yeah, I heard. I heard what’s up,” Clarke said after Fallon kindly reminded her that Turner tried to besmirch her good name.

“Here’s the truth: We had a party before the Emmys recently and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varyswho’s sitting next to me in that scenehe pulls me aside and he’s like, ‘Emilia, I have got to tell you something, love. The coffee cup was mine,’” she recalled.

“It was his! It was Conleth’s coffee cup! He said so,” she continued. “He said, ‘I think it was, I am sorry, darling. I didn’t want to say anything because it seemed the heat was very much on you.’”

We all know the real culprit is some underpaid PA, who has since been burned alive as punishment for his negligence. But yes! Conleth! Let’s go with that.

Has anyone ever seen Thiel and Spanfeller in the same room? What is the end game, here? Because it’s certainly not about money. Everything move they’ve made thus far has been the antithesis of money-making. This is like the Underpants Gnomes plan for G/O Media.

1. Fire your writers.

2. Enrage your fanbase.

3. ?

4. Profit!

Who is Spanfeller? What’s his history? What sewer did he ooze out of? Who hurt you, Jim? Who hurt you?

P.S. Emilia Clarke is just the best.
