Emilia Clarke is finally telling "Game of Thrones" fans who is to blame for the Starbucks coffee cup appearing in a shot during the final season of the HBO cult series classic.

The Mother of Dragons dished on the epic slip up moment during the last season of "GoT" and despite being initially blamed by co-star Sophie Turner, the finger should not be pointed at Clarke.

The actress sat down on "The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon" in New York City on Wednesday to promote her upcoming movie, "Last Christmas," when the talk show host begged for the answer to Coffee-Gate.

"I heard what's up," the actress responded to Fallon in regards to Turner's accusations that it was Clarke's caffeinated cup.

"So, here's the truth," she said. "We had, like, a party before the Emmys recently, and [Conleth Hill]—who plays Varys, who's sitting next to me in that scene—he pulls me aside and he's like, 'Emilia, I gotta tell you something. I gotta tell you something, love. The coffee cup is mine.'" Aha! It was the Spider!"

Attempting to desperately clear her name, Clarke reiterated, "It was his! It was Conleth's coffee cup, he said so. He's like, 'I think it was, I'm sorry. I didn't want to say anything because it seemed the heat was very much on you.' And I was like, 'What?!'"

While the Master of Whisperers apparently came clean to Daenerys Targaryen, she totally called him out on National TV!

"I think that's who did it," Clarke added after labeling Hill the culprit. "I mean, he said it. He might have been drunk, but he said it, so I'm gonna take that."

Sophie Turner passed the blame on Clarke while appearing on Jimmy Fallon's show in May. When asked about the cup, Turner responded, "Let's clear this up. That's in a different scene, and also, we all have the same cups for all of our water and tea and everything, so I'm gonna just go with, I mean look who it's placed in front of. Emilia Clarke. She's the culprit."

HBO "Game of Thrones" fans will recall the chaos caused by the infamous Starbucks cup appearing in an episode of season 8. “Starbucks Cup” quickly began to trend on Twitter with hilarious reactions from fans.

"You may be upset that it's Monday but at least you don't leave your coffee cup in the shot to air on last nights episode 😂#GameOfThrones #GoT," wrote one fan.

"I THOUGHT THEY WERE JOKING WHEN THEY SAID THAT THERE WAS A COFFEE CUP IN ONE OF THE SCENES IN THE NEW EPISODE SO I PLAYED IT BACK AND OH MY GOD I AM LAUGHING SO HARD. GAME OF THRONES IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST BUDGETED TV SHOWS AND THEY FORGOT TO REMOVE THE FREAKING COFFEE CUP," added another.

Some critiqued the editors by accusing them of getting lazy as "Game of Thrones" was coming to an end.

"I cannot get over how the makers of #GameOfThrones put fans on blast for not having expensive enough TVs to fully appreciate their visually perfect show then this week there’s actually enough light to see the screen and their sloppy asses fully left a 2019 coffee cup in the shot," stated a viewer.

Goodbye, GoT!

The last episode of "Game of Thrones" aired on May 19 with many hating on the ending. We won't spoil anything for those who haven't seen it, but literally what have you been doing?

It wasn't the last time we saw castmates together though. Emilia Clarke recently reconnected with Kit Harington, who famously played Jon Snow, and Jason Momoa, who was Khal Drogo, for her 33rd birthday extravaganza!
