After hanging out with the dead horse for a while, Daenerys shouts something that sounds kind of like "Sa-koi-koi!" She sends three strapping young lads in three different directions to look for cities, caravans or people. They are to determine the boundaries of the Red Waste. I'm no expert, but maybe they should have learned how big it was before they wandered into the middle of it. The three youths are taking the three last horses. She calls one of them "blood of my blood." Not sure what that means, since I'm pretty sure her baby died. He might be Drogo's little brother or something. They ride off. She looks at the comet, which I'm already sick of. It's just sitting up there in the sky. Let it crash into the ground and then we'll have something. Maybe it could crush Joffrey.
Out north, where it's snowy, the Wall boys are working with a sledge. They arrive at a miserable encampment. There are girls, all of whom are the daughters/wives of the guy who runs the place. His name is Craster, and I'm just going to assume that it's mentioned somewhere in here. I take pretty good notes during these episodes, but let's face it -- There are a lot of names in here. So, yes, I look up the character names sometimes. And that's what I've done here. The deal here is that Craster marries his own daughters, fathers new daughters and then marries them. Jon Snow wonders what happens to his sons. My guess is he has a giant pit out back that he throws them into. I don't know why it has to be a giant pit, but that's what I picture.
The men of the Wall are here to ask Craster if he knows what happened to Benjen. He does not! And in the course of his answer, he calls them all "Southerners." This annoys Jon Snow, since he's from Winterfell. He promptly absorbs some speculation about whether he has a wet twat between his legs. Craster is a delightful person, what with his incestuous harem and irrational hatred of Jon Snow. Anyway, he thinks everyone from below the Wall is a Southerner. Snow is told to shut up. We learn that all the villages between here and the Wall are empty. There are a lot of villages north of the Wall? Huh. I wonder how their residents feel about the Wall. Craster's a weird incestuous jerk, but I don't think it requires a 500-foot wall to keep him out.
Craster snaps, "You want to know where they've all gone? North! To join up with Mance Rayder." Mance once broke his vows to the Night's Watch, but now he's self-proclaimed "King Beyond the Wall." The old man demands somebody's axe because it's got nice steel. This show has a lot of people talking about steel. Craster goes on: "You wanna know what Mane Rayder's doing? Gathering an army. But I hear he's already got more men than any of your Southern kings." And the only way to go with his army is south. He makes one of the traumatized young ladies recite, "This is our place. Our husband keeps us safe. Better to live free than die a slave." Well, that's fun. He tells the Lord-Commander that he'll allow them to sleep there, but he'll cut off any hand that touches one of his wives. And if Snow looks too long, his eyes get gouged out. He has some objection to Snow being a foundling, I guess. Maybe he thinks he clawed his way out of that giant pit and has come back for revenge.
