House of the Dragon’s Viral VFX Error Will Be Fixed And Shipped To HBO Streaming Platforms Later This Week

Three years after the now infamous Starbucks Cup incident in the final season of Game of Thrones, the prequel series House of the Dragon has its own unfortunate blunder, just three episodes away.

Many fans noticed towards the end of the third episode – Second of His Name – that Paddy Considine was still wearing a green glove to hide two missing fingers from his character King Viserys Targaryen.

Photos of the green glove went viral on social media after Sunday’s episode, with HBO telling The Hollywood Reporter that the episode would be fixed with the new version hitting streaming platforms this week.

The moment occurs right at the start of a new scene in the episode’s 45th minute, where Viserys hands a scroll to Ser Addam (Oscar Salem), telling him to “hurry up” and hand it to Prince Daemon (Matt Smith) in Dwarf Stone.

Although the scene is fairly trivial in the episode’s grand scheme, the digital effects artists were unable to remove Visery’s pinky and ring fingers, which were covered in green so that the VFX artists could remove in post-production.

However, that didn’t happen, and fans on social media like Sarah Capps took notice, sharing a photo on Twitter on Sunday night that clearly shows the green blanket.

“Not the green screen glove on Viserys missing fingers #hotd,” Capps said in his tweet, which got over 1,000 likes.

The incident was reminiscent of the Starbucks mug that was seen clearly at a dinner party during the fourth episode of Game of Thrones season 8.

The scrutiny at that time even led House of the Dragon creator/showrunner Ryan Condal to make sure they had “a very heavily guarded set”, even joking, “there was a lot Starbucks hunt in progress” during filming.

“We always joked about it, that we were going to make Starbucks cups to at least fit into the scene,” he added.

Still, the incident brings to light one of the big mysteries of this season, the unspecified illness King Viserys suffers from, which has been hinted at but not entirely solved.

The disease was first hinted at during the premiere, when the maesters were trying to treat a lesion on his back that somehow refused to heal.

Another scene in the second episode – set six months after the first – showed the King being treated with maggots to remove dead flesh from his little finger, although that apparently didn’t work either.

The third episode showed that his little finger and ring finger had been amputated, although no further details about the mysterious condition were revealed.

House of the Dragon returns with the fourth of its eight-episode first season on Sunday, September 11 at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on HBO.

Illness: The third episode showed that his little finger and ring finger had been amputated, although no further details about the mysterious illness were revealed.
