Bran and Rickon have escaped Winterfell. Theon tries to hunt them down. Daenerys' dragons have been stolen. Jon travels through the wilderness with Ygritte as his prisoner. Sansa has bled and is now ready to have Joffrey's children.
At Winterfell, Osha arranges for Bran and his younger brother to escape. Theon is outraged and sets off after them but can't quite seem to find them. Osha improvises, as does Theon so as not to lose face. North of the Wall, Jon finds himself lost and separated from the other members of the Night's Watch. His prisoner, Ygritte, soon turns the tables on him. At Robb's camp, Jaime Lannister escapes but is soon recaptured. At Harrenhal, Tywin Lannister wants to find the assassin who struck so near to him. At King's Landing, Sansa has nightmares about her near rape but also begins to menstruate. Cersei has advice for her but the young woman is clearly worried about having to marry Joffrey. In Qarth, Daenerys meets with the ruling council and demands the return of her dragons. Written by
According to the novels, Jaime was a squire for Lord Sumner Crakehall, not for Barristan Selmy; he never had any squire named Brian; when he took part in the campaign against the Kingswood Brotherhood, he was fifteen years old, not sixteen; and he never competed against Balon Swann. See more »
Tywin Lannister mentions that people still remember Aegon Targaryen's name 300 years after his death, as the show takes place in the years 299 and 300 in Westeros, though years are counted from Aegon's conquering of Westeros, not from the year he died, which was approximately forty years later.

An improvement over the last two episodes in Season 2
Don't get me wrong. Episode 5 and 6 were still good episodes, but they weren't as great as the first four which did a great job continuing where the story lines left off in Season 1. This episode, on the other hand, is an improvement and is another great episode. Sure, some of the new characters had little to do, but it doesn't matter.
The acting's still great, the story and script are well-written, the relationships are still great, the moments with Daenerys are good (when she finds out her dragons have been taken, it left a cliffhanger to what would happen in the last three episodes which is very satisfying), the music score's still great and the pacing is fine.
Overall, another great episode and looking forward to review the next three episodes. :)
