Advertisement - Guide continues below
- Yoren and company. Traveling. North. Still. Now they're heading for a town on the God's Eye lake.
- The travelers explore the town and find it empty, so Yoren decides they'll stay at the holdfast and use the lake to gather resources.
- During Arya's evening watch, Hot Pie asks her where she really got her sword. She says her brother gave it to her.
- Arya dreams of a wolf howling and wakes up in time to spot a group coming toward them.
- The riders address the people in the holdfast, and Yoren explains they are simply men of the Night's Watch bound for the Wall.
- The leader, Ser Amory Lorch, demands they open the gates. Yoren refuses.
- Ser Lorch says, "That's cool. Have a nice day" and rides off. Just kidding. He considers them traitors for their act of defiance and orders the walls stormed.
- A fierce battle ensues, filled with pyrotechnics, spectacular stunt work, and loads of blood squibs.
- When it becomes clear the Night's Watch has lost, Yoren orders Arya to gather all she can and escape under the barn.
- Arya gathers Gendry, Hot Pie, a wounded Lommy, and the girl.
- On the way out, Jaqen H'ghar calls for Arya as the fires spread toward the wagon.
- She tosses the three men an axe to free themselves and then escapes under the barn with the others.
