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
Most of Catelyn and Jaime's conversation, as portrayed in the novel, was omitted from the show: Jaime's admission that he is the father of Cersei's children; his version about the dagger, which proved to Catelyn that Littlefinger lied to her about Tyrion being its owner; how Eddard's father and brother were killed by the Mad King.

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.

[Jaime has been recaptured after his escape attempt]
Stand back! I want his head!
[the Stark guards draw their swords]
Any man who stands between a father and his vengeance asks for death!
Lord Karstark! This man is our prisoner.
This monster killed my son.
And crippled mine! He will answer for his crimes, I promise you, but not here.
I will have his head, and if you try and stop me...
You will strike me down? Have you forgotten me, ser? I am the widow of you liege lord, Eddard Stark! I am the ...

Very good coming of age events. The princess discovers she is of an age to have children and now must give herself to Joffrey. Theon moves on way over his head. He chases the Stark boys with thoughts of their deaths. Catelyn may finally show the hate and emotion she has saved up for the King Killer. Jon is put in a terrible place, listening to the Wilding girl abuse his manhood. He has to hearken back to his oath to the watch. This, unfortunately, brings him into great jeopardy. Anya is becoming entertainment for her captor; he is able to speak frankly with him. She is feeling her way out, having thoughts of murder, but she is also respectful of him (to a point). Shadow people kill most of the Thirteen and the Mother of Dragons has only one goal: to get her "children" back so she can pursue her quest. There is a great deal to think about, moving into the next episode.
