After getting blamed for the production mishap that took the internet by storm, Clarke says the real culprit revealed themselves to her at a drunken Emmys party.
It is perhaps the greatest unanswered questions after eight seasons of "Game of Thrones." Who left a paper coffee cup sitting on the table in front of Daenerys Targaryen in one scene of the epic HBO series, proving once and for all that Starbucks has made its way to Westeros?
Recently, Sophie Turner jumped to the obvious conclusion that it was Emilia Clarke herself, considering that the offending vessel was sitting right there in front of her. Well, Emilia Clarke has something to say about that!
During an appearance on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday night, Jimmy Fallon played for her the clip of her former co-star effectively throwing her under the bus for the production blunder, but Emilia wasn't having it.
Even better, she claims to have the true story ... and the true culprit!
"We had like a party before the Emmys recently and Conleth [Hill], who plays Varys -- he’s sitting next to me in that scene -- he pulls me aside and he goes, ‘I gotta tell you something,'" Emilia shares. "'The coffee cup was mine.'"
To that point, everyone had pretty much come to the conclusion that Emilia was to blame, but here was the Master of Whispers himself whispering his own little secret.
Even better, he knew exactly what he was doing. "He said, ‘I think it was, I didn’t want to say anything darling because it seemed the heat was very much on you," Emilia said. "And I was like, ‘What?’"
That's right, Conleth was more than willing to let Emilia take the fall for this one with "GoT" fandom, even though he may well have been the one who did the deed, after all. In all actuality, letting her take the sword for his misdeed is a very Varys thing to do. We're sure it was for the good of the realm, right?
So is that it? Is the case well and truly solved? "He said it," Emilia told Jimmy. "He might have been drunk, but he said it, so I’m gonna take it."
Everyone knows that drunk people tend to be more honest and open about their feelings and their guilt, so we're gonna take it, too.
