Fans were quick to call out the error and mock the mishap online.
“Jaime’s hand grew back for Cersei wow his power,” said one disgruntled fan.
“Has there ever been another TV show that’s gone from being so universally loved to detested in the final season like Game of Thrones?” said another.
However, it turns out the edit fail didn’t actually make it into the episode, but only appeared in a promotional still, HBO told Fox News.
The final episode of Game of Thrones will air on May 19.
