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

When Ser Alton Frey is talking to Ser Jaime Lannister in the prison cell at the Stark camp he talks about the tourney on the day of Ser Willem Frey's wedding. He says he remembers how Jaime knocked Balon Swann from his horse. The wedding of Ser Willem is assumed to have occurred long before the start of the TV series, but Balon Swann was new to the tourney lists in the tourney to celebrate Eddard Stark being appointed hand of the king, so could not have taken part in the tourney for Willem Frey's wedding.

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. :)
