Like we could love her more.

Game of Thrones season eight is officially here and we’re obsessed.

Our days are now dominated by Westeros news and updates, from the emergence of the teaser trailer to theories about who is going to end up on the iron throne.

It was Daenerys Targaryen that everyone’s been talking about this week, from the theory that she will become the Mad Queen to the revelation that we’ve all been pronouncing her title wrong.

The main reason however why Emilia Clarke has made news this week is for her response to that Starbucks blunder.

In case you missed the outrage, a Starbucks cup was visible in front of Daenerys Targaryen at the banquet of champions - confusing eagle-eyed viewers.

Was it intentional advertising? Could it be a huge oversight? What did it all mean?

Emilia Clarke who was sitting in front of the cup has broken her silence on the blunder this week, posting a sassy response.

‘Did I just stumble upon the truth here?! The cup bearer does not drinketh the Starbucks tea…,’ she posted alongside a photo of her and her costars, Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage, with a Starbucks cup in her hand. ‘Oh and this ain’t a spoiler just a lost wanderer coming home for a mid filming cuppa....🔥 @prideofgypsies you so fire you make my hair turn blue. #forfuturereferenceileavethebagin #drogonyouhavemyheart4lyfe #familyvalues @gameofthrones #forthethrone #forthecaffeine #forthedragons #🔥 #🙌 #❤️’

Like we needed another reason to love Emilia Clarke.
