The sudden cinnamon infusion stunned fans, who aren't used to seeing their favorite naked mermaid pop up near their favorite naked dragon mom. And with so much time, money, and staff to carefully craft each episode, it is downright weird that nobody noticed (and CGI'd out) the Unicorn Frappuccino among the perfectly medieval wine jugs and candle holders. It's such a basic continuity screw-up that internet tinfoil men have already started accusing HBO of intentionally leaving the cup in as stealth marketing for Starbucks -- which would have been quite the conspiracy on a set that got spy-droned more than the Pentagon.
Of course, the real reason is obvious. This cameo is a carefully planned ruse, something to ease hardcore fans into the real twist at the end of the season when, as everyone celebrates Daenerys and Jon's wedding, Tyrion rolls back Bronn's sleeve and discovers to his horror that he's wearing an Apple Watch over his chainmail.
