IN CASE YOU missed in last night’s episode—or haven’t been on #GoT Twitter today—someone seems to have left a Starbucks cup sitting on a table in that revelry scene on Sunday’s Game of Thrones. People. Are. Freaking. Out. An investigation has been called for. People want oral histories. Fans are already calling it the best thing that happened in Season 8, Episode 4. But we have a more important question: What’s in that cup? Also, it is really from Starbucks, like many are suggesting? The logo doesn’t look quite right. These are our most educated guesses.

10. Actual booze

Not, like, you know, the fake grape juice crap this cast had to spend most of the shoot drinking.

9. Triple espresso

Hey, at least it explains why Tormund was even more wide-eyed than usual.

8. Plot holes

There are still so many unanswered questions on this show, maybe this cup contains the reason Sam seems to have completely forgotten that Jon’s girlfriend killed his dad and brother (amongst other things)? This cup is barely a grande, but it’s full of secrets. (Speaking of, did you know Dany gets a new braid every time she wins a battle? True story.)

7. Water

No one ever drinks anything but wine or ale on this show. Dany is the only one with decent skin because she is the only one who knows how to hydrate.

6. Orange mocha frappuccino

At least, that’s what Emilia Clarke told Glamour was her drink. Though, now that she’s in Winterfell, it’s possible she’s switched to drinking Flat White Walkers. Everyone has.

5. Poison

Dany was going to give it to Sansa; thought better of it. Left.

4. Male tears

Before you sits Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, rightful heir to the Iron Throne, rightful Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unbrunt, the Breaker of Chains. Before her sits a cup of all the tears of men who loved and died for her only for her to fall for her nephew Jon Snow, Knower of Nothing. (Seriously, this all still feels really out of character.)

3. Jon’s 23andMe spit sample

He’d really just like to double- and triple-check that whole “being a Targaryen” thing, you know?

2. A rabbit hole

Get too curious about this cup’s contents and you’ll find yourself Googling TV and movie continuity errors for at least an hour.

1. Dunno, really

But our guess is that it was left there by the same dumbass who thought it was fine not to leave anyone behind to protect Dragonstone from Euron Greyjoy while everyone was off fighting White Walkers.
