Although the action-packed season four finale of Game of Thrones left me reeling (Why, George R.R. Martin, why?!)* I can never get enough of Westeros. From the crazy plot twists to the detailed costumes to those intricately braided updos, each episode keeps me hooked from start to finish—and makes me scream at the TV more often than my neighbors might like.
As it turns out, however, the cast members have some pretty stellar Instagram accounts (praise the Seven). And without a new episode every Sunday night to keep me satisfied, scrolling through expertly-filtered snaps of Oberyn, the Stark sisters and even Queen Cersei herself will surely provide a welcome escape from the Moon Door that is my heart.
