In a show as dramatic as Game of Thrones, we have to take the lighter moments where we can get them. One of those precious giggles came during last week's episode, "No One," when Tyrion peer pressured Grey Worm and Missandei into drinking and then forced them to tell jokes.

Of course, if you follow any of the Game of Thrones cast on Instagram, then you already know about the shimmering glimmers of humor that pop up once in awhile when our heroes are between takes.

For instance, Emilia Clarka a.k.a. Daenerys Stormborn just shared THIS beauty with the caption “The truth behind my warriors…”

Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) turns to Emilia's camera phone with a message directed toward Michiel (that would be Michiel Huisman a.k.a. Daario Naharis). What was clearly meant to be bragging dissolves into laughter as Anderson spins a dagger (which is hopefully a prop that's not as dangerous as it looks) and drops it on Peter Dinklage's (Tyrion's) face!

Dinklage plays it off to full comedic effect, pretending to have been stabbed in the throat while the Mother of Dragons yells, "Ahhh shit!" in the background. Anderson closes the scene with a delightfully deadpan: "Worth it!"

In other Grey Worm-related humor, Maisie Williams comes in strong with a post about snacks she made to share on set:

Or this beaut from Sophie Turner, showing the Stark sister reunion we've all been praying for:

Seriously, how cute are they?
