Ned and Jon say their goodbyes, as Ned leaves for King's Landing and Jon leaves for the Night's Watch. As they share farewells, Ned tells Jon, "[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming The Starks have manned the Wall for thousands of years and you are a Stark. You might not have my name but you have my blood.]]" Ned promises Jon that the next time they see each other, they will talk about Jon's mother. The topic comes up again at lunch, with Ned and King Robert by the side of the road reminiscing about old times. Robert mentions that there's only been one woman who has made Ned Stark forget his honor. In between Robert dredging up names (mostly of women ''he's'' bedded; "Thank the gods for Bessie! ''And'' her tits!"), Ned names her "Wylla," but will not speak of her. Finally, Robert gets down to business: he's received a message updating him on Daenerys Targaryen's marital status. It ignites Robert's legendary hatred of the Targaryens, despite Ned reminding him that there's an ocean between Westeros and this hypothetical avenging Dothraki horde, and that the Dothraki have no fleet.

On the journey to '''the Wall'''. Jon and Tyrion discuss the falling standards of the Watch as nowadays, many of the Night's Watch brothers are criminals. As they discuss the Lannister history with the Targaryen and Baratheon regimes, young Jon is appropriately disenchanted with the Imp's observations of life: "Life is full of these little ironies" -- the Lannisters served the previous king for years until Jaime Lannister killed him, then Cersei married the new king and now {{JerkAss}} Joffrey will be king after him. Tyrion says he, himself, would have been killed because he was born a dwarf but survived because he was born into the wealthiest family in all the Seven Kingdoms and, as a result, must use his mind for the honor of his house. He parallels this with Jon, who is an [[HeroicBastard illegitimate]] son with nothing to inherit, but is set to forge his own path and earn his own honour by joining the ancient order of the Night's Watch. Jon argues that joining the Watch is a noble aim as the Wall defends the realm but Tyrion dismisses this. Jon takes a stiff drink of wine after their campfire conversation.

Cersei visits Catelyn at Bran's bedside, and tells her about her first son, a little boy with black hair who died of a fever. Jaime, meanwhile, visits Winterfell's armory, where he finds Jon Snow helping to forge a sword. [[{{Troll}} Jaime]] sarcastically thanks him for guarding them all from the perils beyond the Wall. "I'm sure it will be thrilling to serve with such an elite force. And if not, well, it's only for life." After he's done smithing, Jon goes to visit Arya, who is packing to leave Winterfell, helped by her pet wolf Nymeria. Jon tells her he has a present for her, and to close the door. He gives her the sword he was helping Mikken forge. It's small and skinny, just like Arya. "First lesson: stick them with the pointy end." Arya names the sword Needle, and she and Jon say their goodbyes. Afterward, Jon goes to visit Bran. Catelyn's not happy to have him there, but allows him to speak to Bran. Jon tells the still-comatose Bran to come and visit him at the Wall when he's well. After a few minutes, Catelyn harshly throws him out. Outside, Jon and Robb share their farewell, hugging each other good-bye.

On the journey to '''the Wall'''. Jon and Tyrion discuss the falling standards of the Watch as most brothers are captured thieves, rapists and other motley scum. Young Snow is appropriately disenchanted with the Imp's helpful advice: "Life is full of these little ironies." Like how he himself would have been killed had he not been born into the wealthiest family in all the Seven Kingdoms and how a bastard with nothing to inherit can only earn honor by trying to forge his own path. Jon takes a stiff drink of wine after their campfire conversation.

In '''Winterfell''', Catelyn continues her vigil over sleeping Bran, explicitly neglecting her duties as the Lady of Winterfell and causing Robb to step up in her stead. Robb gives her the first paragraph of a "WhatTheHellHero?" speech, but is derailed by a fire elsewhere in the castle. He rushes away, leaving the window open for the howls of the direwolves to filter in. Whilst he's gone, a creepy-looking man appears into the room with a wickedly-curved blade and almost literally announces his intention to slit Bran's throat. Catelyn fights him with every weapon at her disposal, but it's Bran's direwolf who saves the day. (Direwolf + assassin aimed at direwolf's master = dead assassin.) The direwolf snuggles up to his bedded master once the douche is bled out; D'awwww!
