At Harrenhal, Arya identifies the last of the three lives Jaqen H'ghar promised her for saving him. Robb is dismayed at the deal his mother has made with Jaime Lannister and places her under arrest.

Bravado, Betrayal and Truth
25 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jon Snow is brought to the Lord of Bones that wants to kill him, but Ygritte saves him claiming that he is a Stark. Jon sees that Halfhand that was captured and he wants Jon as a spy of the Wildings. Luwin sees Osha in the crypt and she shows Bran and Rickon alive, and the burned bodies belonged to the farm boys. Stannis and his fleet is arriving to King's Landing and Tyrion is plotting a plan to defend the castle, while Joffrey shows a false courage. Robb arrests Catelyn for releasing Jaime Lannister from his cell to exchange him for her two daughters.

"The Prince of Winterfell" is an engaging episode and fortunately the two Stark boys are alive. Joffrey's bravado is disgusting and let's see if he will have the bravery that he shows to the court. Catelyn's betrayal is unforgivable and has deeply affected Robb and the other Lords. My vote is nine.
