Fans discover CGI errors in House of the Dragon Episode 3: “It’s GOT coffee cup again” | web series


House of the Dragon has brought fans back into the Game of Thrones family. The spinoff/prequel got off to a good start with impressive viewership and critical acclaim. However, the show resorted to one flaw from its predecessor’s bug list – lack of attention to detail. On Sunday, when the show’s third episode streamed, many viewers noticed that the show had aired a massive CGI glitch.

Taking to Twitter, some fans showed how the green glove of Paddy Considine, who plays King Viserys, was visible in a shot. In the previous episode, Viserys cut his hand on the Iron Throne and had to amputate two fingers to save his hand. In such shots, the actors are given green or blue gloves to hide the portion that will later be removed from the frame during post-production CGI and VFX work. However, the creators apparently got it wrong here and forgot to take off the glove.

Fans toasted the show over this rather big mistake. One wrote, “How do you do a $200M show without pulling a green glove out of frame?” Another wrote, “Not the green screen glove on Viserys’ missing fingers (facepalm emoji).” Lots were reminded of a similar mistake Game of Thrones made in its final season in 2019, when a Starbucks coffee mug was left in the picture in one of the episodes. One fan wrote, “This is like a GoT Starbucks coffee mug fiasco all over again lmao.”

Some fans hoped the glitch was a one-time thing and not symptomatic of the showrunners’ inattention to details. “When GoT made that coffee cup mistake, it showed that nobody was paying attention and people had lost interest. But HOTD is different. It was good and I hope this is just a one off thing,” one fan wrote.

House of the Dragon is based on George RR Martin’s Fire and Blood, a companion book to the A Song of Ice and Fire series on which Game of Thrones was based. The show streams every Sunday on Disney+ Hotstar in India with new episodes.
