HBO is at it again, folks. In the past, the channel has mistakenly left everything from crew members to coffee cups in the finale of its shows. Now history has repeated itself in HBO’s latest hit series, The last of us.

A fan discovered the mistake in episode six, when Joel and Ellie travel to Jackson, Wyoming. One scene shows an overhead view of the snowy terrain, and – if you look closely – you can see two cameramen standing in the frame. After the episode aired, Neil Druckmann, who wrote and directed The last of us video game franchise, tweeted about a certain spoiler moment from the show that was trending on Twitter.

Then a clever fan replied to point out the editing error. “Brilliant episode,” they wrote along with a screenshot of the scene. “Something you might want to fix and re-upload. You can see the film crew in this image.”

What can we say? Everyone makes mistakes! Even HBO’s editing suite. Druckmann did not respond to the fan, but others flocked to the comments to talk about the slip. One fan even photographed Starbucks cups over the crew, referencing the infamous ones Game of Thrones error, when a leftover cup was detected in a section. The fan tweeted, “So it’s clear, if anyone can’t see it. I highlighted the areas where the crew is standing. With a little humor. I LOVE both the game and the series. I’m not just pointing out mistakes. But I’m sure they would want to fix it.”

Editing hiccups aside, The last of us has turned out to be an excellent show. Since premiering on January 15, the series has amassed a strong fan base and nearly five million weekly viewers. The show – which is based on Druckmann’s game of the same name – follows Joel and Ellie’s trek to safety, following the events of an apocalyptic fungal outbreak. With so many viewers tuning in each week to see how Joel and Ellie are doing, it was only a matter of time before fans started to rave about the series. Fortunately, it’s nothing a quick edit can’t fix.
