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.

[after Bran, Rickon, Hodor, and Osha disappeared from Winterfell]
A cripple. You let a cripple escape. The boy can't walk, but somehow he slipped past you.
The giant must've took him.

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.
