House Of The Dragon Fans Find CGI Mistake In Newest Episode

Fans have found a mistake in Episode 3 and are comparing it to the coffee cup mistake from Game of Thrones.


The latest episode of House of the Dragon, the recently released Game of Thrones prequel, seemingly has a mistake in it that fans are comparing to the "coffee cup" moment from the original series. This story contains spoilers for House of the Dragon.

Eagle-eyed fans discovered that King Viserys actor Paddy Considine's pinky and ring finger are shining green for some reason in one scene. Fans believe Considine was wearing a green screen glove and that the editors forgot to fix it in post-production. As viewers know, Viserys is suffering from some kind of illness that is slowly eating away at his flesh, which explains why CG is required for his missing fingers.

The green fingers are still in House of the Dragon as of this morning, GameSpot confirmed. Whether or not they are edited out in the future, like Daenarys' coffee cup was, remains to be seen. [Update: the CGI mistake will be fixed on streaming platforms, Variety reports]

House of the Dragon began 176 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and tells the story of the Targaryen family. Episode 3 moved the story forward in time about two years, and coming episodes will seemingly contain a bigger time jump. The actresses who currently play Rhaenyra and Alicent will be replaced by older versions played by Emma D'Arcy and Olivia Cooke, respectively.

The next episode of House of the Dragon airs this Sunday, September 11, and it will apparently be a drama-filled installment featuring some kind of "vile accusation." For more, check out a teaser trailer for House of the Dragon episode four.

House of the Dragon is now competing with another high-profile fantasy series, Amazon Studios' The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, which picked up 25 million viewers for its first episodes.
