By George R.R. Martin

Chapter 14

Jon II

  • We reconnect with Jon during the Great Ranging. The Rangers have come to the village of Whitetree. It is the fourth village they have visited and the fourth to be deserted.
  • Mormont writes a message to update Maester Aemon and the others back in Castle Black.
  • Jon brings the message to Sam, who is in charge of the ravens. Jon learns that the self-proclaimed coward Sam has discovered a bit of his courage; he also taught the ravens to speak while he was at it.
  • The Rangers ride on. Mormont tells Jon they'll meet up with Qhorin Halfhand and his men and proceed to find whatever enemy awaits them beyond the Wall.
  • Jon wonders if the enemy might not find them first.
