Another ‘Game of Thrones’ gaffe: Jaime Lannister grows his hand back
Just as “Coffeegate” was about to simmer down, “Game of Thrones” is serving up another hot screw up.
Fresh off the anachronistic appearance of modern-day java cup in episode 4, the final season of HBO’s hit fantasy drama’s latest editing mistake: Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) appears to have miraculously grown back his severed hand in Sunday night’s episode 5, “The Bells.”
Screen shots of his final scene — in which he embraces Cersei (Lena Headey) as the Red Keep goes up in flames — seems to contradict episode history. True fans will recall that this legendary swordsman had to relearn the art of combat after his right hand was chopped off in Season 3.
Eagle-eyed viewers took to social media to do what they do best lately — pound out keyboard cries of outrage aimed at show-runners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff.
“Jaime’s hand magically healed in Episode 5,” one fan groused in a since-deleted tweet. “As if we needed any more proof D&D simply stopped caring about GoT a log [sic] time ago.”
The duo also took the heat last week after the Starbucks-like paper cup was accidentally left in a scene.
“The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea,” HBO sarcastically conceded the morning after. A network rep confirmed to The Post that the cup was digitally edited out of the scene on the HBO Go app.
