Emilia Clarke and Nathalie Emmanuel practiced their warrior poses.
The following contains inherent spoilers about who is still alive on Game of Thrones.
When we found out that Game of Thrones would skip an entire year of airtime to allow for filming the series' final season, we knew it would be hard to handle the lengthy hiatus. But let's admit it: we didn't realize just how hard!
It feels like ages since we last explored the Seven Kingdoms, went beyond the Wall, or crossed the Narrow Sea with our favorite characters. And while seeing the cast come together for Kit Harington and Rose Leslie's "royal wedding" served to ease a bit of the pain, the feeling was only temporary.
If you're jonesing for more GOT in your life while you await the HBO show's eighth (and final) installment, then you should simply take a look at the remaining cast's Instagram posts while they film the series. While (almost!) everybody is staying tight-lipped about the grand finale, your favorite faces haven't been shy about sharing what they've been up to during the year-plus of filming.
From behind-the-scenes adventures to sentimental posts as they wrap their final scenes, these Instagrams from the cast's gap year will be enough to tide you over until season eight finally drops. Ahead, peep what they've been up to since the season seven finale!
