Bran's crew is at The Gift. Bran's crew currently consists of himself, his brother Rickon, their Wildling friend Osha, Hodor (the guy who only says Hodor), Jojen, and Meera. The Gift is the area of land south of the Wall that Brandon the Builder gave to the king. Meera wonders why it's uninhabited, since it looks like nice land. And it has a nice tower already built on it! Bran explains that the area was abandoned because the Wildlings kept raiding it. Osha glares at him for that. Rickon says that Old Nan told him that Wildlings turn your skull into a cup and make you drink your own blood from it. I'm not sure how that would work. This also results in a look from Osha, but it's not really a glare. There's a storm coming, so everyone figures they might as well hide in the tower. Osha tells Rickon he can drink some blood while they wait.
Enough of them. Off to the Wildlings! Orell has been doing some reconnaissance, and he says this farm has one old man with eight horses. Jon says he breeds them for the Watch, and the Watch protects him in return. Orell says he should have some gold. Tormund says he'll also have good steel, so they'll carve him up and take everything. Whee! Jon wants to leave the old man alive, because this is the scene where the undercover cop has to face a moral dilemma. Ygritte says the man will be better off with a spear than dying of old age. By that reasoning, you might as well kill everyone you see, right?
Everyone runs out from behind their tiny wall to go slaughter this guy. There are a lot more people in Tormund's merry band than I thought. I had the impression that it was just the named characters, plus maybe three hangers-on, but there are around thirty people here. While running, Jon clangs his sword onto a convenient rock, which makes the horses whinny, and the man comes out to see what's up. And when he sees that what's up is that thirty or so bloodthirsty Wildlings are storming his farm, he gets up on a horse and starts to ride away. Ygritte's about to shoot an arrow into him, but Jon calls her name and she shoots a nearby tree instead. Then she glares at him. She'd probably tell him he knows nothing, but there isn't time.
Arya looks across a river at the Twins. It's this pair of castles on either side of the river, connected by a bridge. Sandor eats some pork, which Arya thinks makes it look like he's not a hog farmer. Well, if he eats literally all the pork on the wagon, sure. But surely a pig foot here and there isn't entirely out of character for a hog farmer. He mocks her a little for constantly looking at the Twins, like she's worried that Robb and Catelyn will leave before she gets there: "You're almost there and you're afraid you won't make it. The closer you get the worse the fear gets." It's not an unreasonable fear. Things have been rough for Arya so far in this series. She takes offense at being accused of feeling dear, so she lashes out at Sandor about his fear of fire. She spotted it when Beric's sword went up. Also she heard what his brother Gregor did to him, holding his head in a fire. Well, also his face is covered in an enormous burn scar. Sandor asks, "That give you some ideas?" She says maybe. He tells her to go ahead and try. After all, her family is just over the river and maybe she could get to them. Then he reminds her about Ilyn Payne killing her father, because he's determined to get the last word in. She stares at him and says, "Someday I'm gonna put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull." It looks like Arya wins. Although she's been dreaming of murder for several episodes and I think she needs to start doing some actual killing. You don't want to get a reputation for being all talk.
