Winter has come and gone.

Game of Thrones stans have been to hell and back this season. Only a month ago, HBO kicked off the eighth and final season of the fantasy favorite based on George R.R. Martin’s book series. Last night, the series reached its culmination and the fan response was… less than fire.

There has been a lot of discussion amonst fans regarding the final season’s lack of consistency. Two weeks ago, fans went wild after seeing a coffee cup left on set. Last night, during perhaps, the show’s most anticipated episode, people were quick to point out ANOTHER forgotten beverage: a plastic water bottle.

The memes took off from there.

While it seems fans were willing to let the Starbucks cup slide, they were less forgiving about the water bottle.

Shots fired!

Some folks roasted the characters for their need to stay hydrated…

While most straight up dragged the show’s writers and crew, accusing them of blatant laziness and carelessness.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, this Twitter user pointed out a second water bottle left on screen.

People have even speculated over whether HBO intentionally missed the water bottle with the hopes of it going viral. Mission accomplished!

Overall, the responses to to the series’ finale have been less than favorable on social media.

Many have cited the water bottle error in last night’s episode as a prime example of the sloppily-excuted season.

There’s even a petition to remake Season 8 which to date, has over 1.2 million signatures.

However, if the response from the cast and crew is anything to go by, GOT die-hards most likely won’t be getting their wish.
