How It All Goes Down

Jon 2

  • Before leaving for the Wall, Jon goes around with his wolf (Ghost) to say goodbye to his family. Bran is still in a coma; Catelyn still hates him just for being an illegitimate child; Robb seems to have grown in authority (though it probably helps that he's got a giant direwolf, Grey Wind, by his side – most people look more authoritative with wolves); and Arya will miss Jon terribly.
  • But Jon gives Arya something to remember him by: a sword she names Needle. (Important for later: the sword is light and pointed, like the swords they use in the Free Cities on the other continent.)
