The great “Game of Thrones” coffee cup mystery saga of 2019 still unrevealed.

If you recollect, in Episode 4 of the series’ last season fans spotted a Starbucks coffee cup in one of the scenes.

HBO managed to laugh off the mistake publishing a statement that claimed, “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”

The previous week, Emilia Clarke disclosed the offender behind the coffee cup (or so we thought).

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show,” the actress known for playing Daenerys Targaryen said the cup owned to the actor, Conleth Hill.

Clarke said Hill admitted that the cup was his during a party before the Emmys and apologized for not coming clean about it.

“He’s like, ‘I think so, I’m sorry darling, I didn’t want to say anything because it seemed the heat was very much on you,’ ” she said. “And I was like, ‘What?!’ ”

Now, Hill who acted as Lord Varys is saying otherwise.

Talking with Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, the “Game of Thrones” actor says it would’ve been a bit impossible for him to leave the cup behind.

“You know, there’s no proof that I did it. So accuse away,” he added, according to CNN and the Guardian. “I would need to have had Mr. Man arms to leave a coffee cup there,” referring to a character with really long arms.

Hill said: “I took a bullet for Emilia Clarke and she touted on me.”

Will fans ever get to the bottom of who left the cup in Episode 4 of the series’ final season?

Sophie Turner, who played as Sansa Stark, pointed the finger at Clarke in May.

“I mean look who it’s placed in front of. Emilia Clarke,” she said on an episode of “The Tonight Show.” “She’s the culprit.”
