Game of Thrones Season 3 Recap: Politics of Power (HBO)


– ( groans )
( men shouting )Robb! ( wailing ) – ( roars )
– ( screams ) ( men cheering ) ( screeching ) Season three begins with us very much heading in the right direction. ( screeches )The dragons have got
a bit bigger.
And you’re starting
to see what they’ll
end up becoming.
We’re headed to Astapor
because we’ve got our ships
and now we need an army. Some say the Unsullied
are the greatest soldiers
in the world. The greatest slave
soldiers in the world. She debates
whether the Unsullied would truly be behind her
because she’s paid them to. Once I own
an army of slaves,
what will I be? Pyat Pree has sent a warlock
to try and kill me.And I’m saved by
Ser Barristan Selmy.
The honor is mine,
my queen. Clarke:
He pledges
allegiance to me
because he was head
of the Kingsguardfor my father.I have been
searching for you,
Daenerys Stormborn, to ask your forgiveness.
I will not fail you again. Ygritte’s taking him to meet Mance Rayder. And this is going straight into enemy territory. He doesn’t rate his chances
of survival particularly high. Don’t look so grim,
Jon Snow. If Mance Rayder likes you,
you’ll live another day. And if he don’t… When Jon first walks
into Mance’s camp,
he meets Tormund. What do we want
with a baby crow? This “baby” killed
Qhorin Halfhand. Harington:
Mance is a legendary
figure.
He used to be part
of the Night’s Watch. Why do you
want to join us? I saw Craster take
his own baby boy and leave it in the woods.
I saw what took it. And why would that make
you desert your brothers? I want to fight
for the side that
fights for the living. Do you know how long
it’s going to take us
to get to King’s Landing – walking through
fields and forests?
– Yes. One thing Jaime is very good at, he’s very good at sniffing out people’s weaknesses. – Move.
He wants her
to lose it with him
so that he will get
the opportunityto get out of his chains
and get rid of her.
And then they reach
this bridgeand finally
he gets the opportunity.
Ah! And unbelievable.
He goes from one
bad situationto a horrible situation.So we have the wonderful
Locke appear.
Let us go, my father will pay
you whatever you want. Enough to buy me
a new head? Season three starts with Robb really just wanting
to fight someone.And they get to Harrenhal
and, again, he can’t
fight anyone.
And worse than that,
the people loyal to himhave been slaughtered
in the most horrific way.
Find her a chamber
that will serve as a cell. Talisa:
She’s your mother.
Robb:
She freed
Jaime Lannister.
The Lannisters robbed
them of their sons.
And she robbed them
of their justice. When we arrive,
I get the messagethat Winterfell,
after being taken by Theon,
has now been
burned to the ground
and it looks like Bran
and Rickon may be dead.
By the time Bolton’s
bastard got to Winterfell,
the ironborn were gone.They massacred everyone
and put the castle
to the torch.
And Bran and Rickon
have not been found. Bran and Rickon have fled Winterfell and no one has heard from them. But there’s a brother and a sister that come. I’m Jojen Reed.This is
my sister Meera.
We’ve come a long way
to find you, Brandon. Fairley:
They realize he has
this power,
but he doesn’t know
anything about it. And we have
much farther to go. So it’s about educating him
so that he can actually
become what he becomes. Theon may have taken them
back to the Iron Islands
as hostages. Have you heard anything
from Theon at all? – What’s your name?
– Theon Greyjoy. What is your name? Reek. My name is Reek. Maisie Williams:
First of all, they’re in
the woods
trying to find
her family.
Not necessarily home, just somewhere where she thinks her family may be.And they come across
the Brotherhood.
They don’t know
who she is.They don’t really want
anything to do with her.
You can finish your meals
before you go. – You’ll free us?
– I give you my word. Rory McCann:
The Hound had been
drinking too much.
We know he’s an angry man and a bit lost. I mean, where’s the Hound gonna go?So I think he was found
drunk under a tree
with not all his wits
about him.
Just as she’s this close
from the door, –the Hound recognizes
who she is.
– Girl.
Then tells the rest of
the Brotherhood who she is. What in seven hells are you
doing with the Stark bitch? Sansa finds a new friend in season three. Margaery. It is my honor
to present my grandmother, the Lady Olenna
of House Tyrell. Pretty much as soon
as she’s introduced to them,they talk about Joffrey.I want you
to tell me the truth about this royal boy,
this Joffrey. Sansa tells them
what he’s really like. – He’s a monster.
– Ah.That’s a pity.– Tell me what
you think of her.
– Who? – Margaery.
She’s an ideal match.With the Tyrells beside us,
we’ll crush the northerners. The new relationship between Margaery and Joffrey,I think,
scares Cersei a lot.
Cersei’s really threatened by Margaery. She’s younger and she’s more beautiful. She’s very smart. But Cersei sees all that.
She knows she’s a game player. She married a traitor
and known degenerate like Renly Baratheon
for a reason. She married Renly Baratheon
because she was told to. That’s what
intelligent women do–
what they’re told. This is what these seasons
are becoming about– is her loss of that one
thing that kept her sane. Because she believes
him– you know, he’s gonna
be the next king and she would reign
through him. The Lord of Harrenhal
will make a worthy suitor
for the Widow Arryn. For which I am
extremely grateful to you. You will leave for the Eyrie
soon as possible and bring Lysa Arryn
into the fold. Peter Dinklage:
Tywin wants to secure
everything.
And he figured Littlefinger would be a great person to go up there and take charge. Littlefinger:Lady Arryn
and I have known each other
since we were children.
She has always been positively predisposed
toward me. Tyrion:
But Lord Baelish’s absence
would present
certain problems.
The royal wedding
may end up being the most expensive
event in living memory. Not a good time
to leave the crown’s
finances unattended. Which is why I’m naming
you new Master of Coin. Dinklage:
They sort of don’t really
recognize Tyrion
as being so instrumental
in saving King’s Landing. The rebels came
for Joffrey’s head. They lost their own,
thanks to Father. Thanks to Father. The Unsullied, who are fundamentally
a slave army,do exactly
as they’re told.
When she meets
the Unsullied,she realizes that she will
take the Unsullied
if only to save them.There’s a small amount
of bartering that goes onuntil she kind of pulls out
the ace of spades.
I have dragons.
I’ll give you one. When she hands over
the dragon,she swaps the dragon
for the whip,
which means
that she’s the master. So she tells them
they need to kill
all of the slavers. ( speaking Valyrian ) Dracarys. ( screaming ) ( screeches ) Tormund:
Orell.
Harington:
Orell is a warg
and he can look
through the eyesof his animal,
which is an eagle.
He reports back that
he’s seen dead crows at the Fist
of the First Men.When we reach
the Fist of the First Men,
we discover that there’s
a kind of horrific pattern
of dead horses
that’s been made.
And Mance is quick to point
out that this is the work
of the white walkers. Always the artists. Mance decides
that Jon should go with the climbing party
over the Wallfor the basic reason
that Jon knows
more about the Wall
than anybody else.
If he’s useful, good.
If not, throw him
off the Wall. See if crows
can fly. These men,
all these soldiers,they’ve been on the road
for God knows how long.
And now suddenly
they have this woman.
Jaime knows
what’s going to happen.
He knows before it happens.But then
when it does happen,
he, for some reason–
I think it surprises himself– he can’t just stand by,
so he makes up this story. Her father
is Lord Selwyn Tarth. Lord Selwyn would pay
his daughter’s weight in sapphires
if she’s returned to him. Coster-Waldau:
So Locke thinks about that
and his greed is stronger
than his lust, I guess.
So he takes it out
on Jaime instead. ( screaming ) Madden:
We get the news
that Robb’s grandfather
is dead at Riverrun.Robb’s very much aware
that he needs the armythat his mother’s
family command as well.
So they set off
to go to Riverrun
for the funeral
of his grandfather
and to discuss
what happens next.And when we get there,Robb meets again
the Blackfish
and Edmure,
Catelyn’s brother.
Edmure has come up with
two Lannister prisoners. Edmure:
Willem Lannister.
Martyn Lannister.
Willem and
Martyn Lannister
are 14 years old. Lord Karstark
takes it upon himselfduring the night to slaughter
these two young boys
chained up
in a prison cell.Robb understands
why he’s done it,
but as a king
and a just leader,
he can’t allow that
to go unpunished. Rickard Karstark,
I sentence you to die. ( grunts ) When Robb carries out
the sentence on Lord Karstark,Robb loses half his army.The Karstarks are gone. They need more men.
They need help. He needs to make amends
with people he’s betrayed,
which is the Freys. But because of Robb’s
breaking of his promiseby marrying Talisa
when he had been promised
to one of
Walder Frey’s daughters,they are very skepticalabout approaching
Walder Frey.
And rightly so.He sends two sons
as an envoy.
And Walder Frey has said,
“Yes, we will help you.”But the sting in the tail
is that Edmure
must marry one
of Walder Frey’s daughters. – Could I see her first?
– You want to count her teeth? He’s disgusted because
everybody in the landknows that nobody
in any right mind
would want
to marry a Frey. The Brotherhood take her
to see their leader. His name is
Beric Dondarrion. Williams:
She’s not particularly
happy about it,
but they’re not hurting us,
so it could be worse. You know, he’s a knight,
but he’s with all these
guys in rags and they look like
a bunch of swineherds. If you mean to murder me,
then bloody well
get on with it. You’ll die soon enough,
but it won’t be murder. For some bizarre reason, they choose
a trial by combat. ( grunting ) Williams:
Beric gets a sword
down his shoulder
and topples over
and “dies.” But somehow
Beric Dondarrionis born againwith the help of Thoros.It’s really
pretty spooky stuff. How many times have you
brought me back? It’s the Lord of Light
that brings you back. – How many times?
– This makes six. What are you
going to do with me? At first light
we’ll ride for Riverrun.Your brother’s there now.What have we here?
Frozen crows? – We can talk inside.
– Can we? Harington:
Mormont and a depleted group
of other rangers
make it back
to Craster’s Keep alive. You feed that pig
better than you feed us. Pig’s got value to me.( woman screams )– What is it?
– ( crying ) It’s at this point
the rebellion starts. ( shouting ) I shall have
your head. We have to gonow!I now am a woman
on a mission.I’ve saved
8,000 slaves
and I’ve got a thirst
for wanting to save
more people.
So we move on to Yunkai.The Yunkish
train bed slaves,
not soldiers. – We can defeat them.
– But they won’t meet us
on the field. Jorah:
They have strong walls.
( speaking Valyrian ) So I then set up campand hear the slavers
of Yunkai,
and I kind of lay down
the law for them.
You will release
every slave in Yunkai. Reject this gift, and I shall show you
no mercy. You are mad. We are not
Astapor or Qarth.
We are Yunkai. Those who survive,
we shall enslave
once more. Perhaps we’ll make
a slave of you as well. ( screeches ) Now get out. Clarke:
I give them a little bit
of a fright with the dragons,
And then I decide – that I’m going
to kill them.
– ( purring ) Harington:
Before Jon, Ygritte, Tormund,
and Orell climb the Wall,
Ygritte sort of
coerces Joninto a secret
place she knows…
Ygritte! …and decides to really test
A– whether he’s a crow,and B–
whether he loves her.
I don’t ever want to leave
this cave, Jon Snow. Harington:
And Jon does betray
his vows.
I think it’s at that point
that he falls in love
with Ygritte.It’s a rare moment
in the story
where we have a purely happy
moment between two characters.When Jon and the others
are climbing the Wall–
which is 800 feet
of ice–
a part of the Wall
breaks off,leaving Jon dangling
on the end of a rope
as well as Ygritte.And it’s only
right at the last minute
that Jon manages
to save them both. ( horse whinnies ) Finally they get
to Harrenhal, the castle. Lord Bolton, I give you
the Kingslayer. We have a dinner
with Roose Bolton. Roose:
I will allow you to go
to King’s Landing
as restitution
for the mistakes
my soldiers made.And you will swear
to tell your father
that I had nothing to do
with your maiming.
– My lady.
– She won’t be going
with you. Jaime leaves Harrenhal.
He leaves with a bad
taste in his mouth.I’m leaving her
with Locke.
Don’t you worry
about your friend.We’ll take good
care of her.
But then on the road,
he finds out that it’s only
a matter of time and
they’re gonna kill her.And he again
surprises himself,
the way he so wants
to just not care. – ( crowd cheering )
– ( roars ) But he does
and he goes back. I’m taking her
to King’s Landing.
Unless you kill me. Well, let’s be
on our way. Spotted a Lannister
raiding party. – How far?
– Less than a day’s
ride south. Time for a lion hunt. They say,
“Oh, we’re gonna go and kill some Lannisters
and then we’ll take you home.” – I swear to you,
this isn’t–
– You’re a liar! They’re all distracted
getting on their armor
and things like that,so she sees her opportunity
and she goes for it.
– Anguy, bring her back.
– Come back, girl. Williams:
Then gets stopped
by the Hound.
( muffled screaming ) Kick all you like,
wolf girl. Won’t do you
no good. He sees a chance
of using Aryaas a bargaining chip.Is that the Blackwater? That’s the Red Fork.
I’m taking you to the Twins. Your uncle is marrying
one of the Frey girls. Your mother and brother
will be there and they’ll pay me
for you. So a great
road trip begins. Littlefinger comes along
and he says to Sansahe’s got a ship and he could
take her with him.
Please, Lord Baelish,
tell me what to do.
Tell me when. She yet again thinks
she’s gonna get out of here. You must see
Highgarden. I don’t think the queen
would let me leave
King’s Landing. Margaery wants to marry
Sansa off to her brother
Loras Tyrell… Once I marry Joffrey,
I’ll be queen. And if you were
to marry Loras… …which Sansa is over
the moon about.She’s getting married to
a guy that’s actually nice.
The Tyrells are plotting to marry Sansa Stark
to Ser Loras. We need to find Sansa Stark
a different husband. He tells Tyrion
he’s gonna marry Sansa,
which I find hilarious.Then, kind of within
the same breath,
lets me know that I’ll be
marrying Margaery’s brother. Tyrion will
do as he’s bid,
as will you. – What do you mean?
– You’ll marry Ser Loras. – I will not.
– Yes, you will. This arranged marriage
to Sansadoesn’t go over
very well.
She doesn’t like
that news at all.
She wasn’t gonna go
on Littlefinger’s shipbecause she was being
married to Loras.
Now Littlefinger
sailed away,
she’s getting married
to Tyrion, who she didn’t want
to get married to. So, am I invited
to your wedding? Shae is pretty gutted
about this marriage to Tyrion. Especially now that
she’s Sansa’s handmaiden. Listen to me,
my lady. I’m not your lady.
I’m your whore. Dinklage:
He’s vulnerable, Tyrion.
And that’s very
frightening to him. The wedding to Tyrion,
in Sansa’s eyes,it was the worst day
of her life.
He’s a Lannister.
She’s not gonna trust him. Joffrey, of course,
takes great gleein this new relationshipand torments both of them
as he usually does. Time for the bedding
ceremony. There will be no
bedding ceremony. There will be
if I command it. Tywin:
I’m sure Tyrion did not
mean to threaten the king. Your uncle is clearly
quite drunk, Your Grace. Stop. But your father– I won’t share your bed.
Not until you want me to. What if I never
want you to? And so my watch begins. ( screeches ) Only one old man
and eight good horses. Let’s carve him up. We just take
the horses and go. The old man’s no threat. There’s a storm coming.( thunder rumbles )It’s as good a place
to shelter as any. –I yield.
– Wildlings.
Harington:
Bran and Rickon
and Osha and Hodor
are in the windmill
that is just by where Jon is. Their paths
just miss each other.Neither of them know
that they’re there.
Cut his throat or he’ll tell
the crows we’re here. Harington:
The man, you know,
has to be killed
and Orell suggests
that it should be Jon
who does itto prove that
he’s one of them.
– Kill him.
– ( grunts ) Orell and Tormund
are about to kill Jonwhen two
direwolves attack.
It’s Bran who goes into
his warg mode
and into Summer
to attack the wildlings
and save Jon. – ( growling )
– ( screams ) – ( grunts )
– ( groans ) ( screeching ) Madden:
When we arrive
at the Freys’,
Lord Frey wants to make sure
that this wedding happens
here and now
before we go back to war. Or so that’s what
we’re led to believe. If you think the time
is right, Lord Walder, by all means,
let us bed them. As the bedding
party exits,the lights dim.Then, literally,
as the door closes,the band strike up.And that is what makes
Catelyn turn around
and think,
“What is going on here?
Something is about
to happen.”
( playing
“Rains of Castamere” ) Arya completely believes
that she’s going home.She’s with one of the most
powerful guys she’s ever met
and he actually
is trying to help her. This was our chance
of getting into the weddingby using
the salt pork wagon.
Turn this cart around
and get the hell out of here. Lord Walder then stops
the proceedings. Fairley:
Roose Bolton comes over
to the table
and sits beside Catelyn,
and that’s when
the enormity of
the situation strikes her. Robb! ( groans ) ( groans ) This sea of arrows
come at them. And Walder Frey
is basically enjoying
every moment of this. Just as we’re coming in,
everyone was killing
each other. Williams:
She realizes everything
is going wrong
and she doesn’t even
know why.
So it’s time
to change the plan.
Plan B.Get the hell
out of there.
It’s too late. McCann:
The Hound, at the
last minute,
manages to just grab her
from behind
and knock her out.At the same time,
Catelyn is trying to
say to her son,“Get out,” but he won’t
leave his dying wife.
Mother. Fairley:
Roose Bolton
walks up to Robb
and whispers something in
his ear and then stabs him. The Lannisters
send their regards. – And she just loses it.
– ( wailing ) Gleeson:
When Joffrey gets the news
of the Red Wedding,
this is the best day
of his life. I walk into
the small council chamberand everyone else
sort of knows
what has happened.
I don’t.
Killed a few
puppies today? Robb Stark is dead. Joffrey loves
every second of it. Command Lord Frey
to send Robb Stark’s head. I’m going to serve it
to Sansa at my wedding feast. She’s no longer
yours to torment. Everyone is mine
to torment, you little monster. Tyrion:
Monsters are dangerous.
And just now kings
are dying like flies. She finds out
that her brother and her mother
have been killed. – Sansa.
– Turner:It’s very
unexpected.
All her hopes are dashed,
like, every single time.
She is pretty bitter.The usurper
Robb Stark is dead. Betrayed
by his bannerman. Gleeson:
Despite his loss
at Blackwater,
the threat of Stannis
is still present. Davos:
It’s from Maester Aemon
of the Night’s Watch.
Their Lord Commander
is dead.
What he saw
beyond the Wall,it’s coming
for all of us.
Gleeson:
Stannis appears to be
more determined
in his desire
for the throne. This war of five kings
means nothing.The true war lies
to the north, my king.
Death marches
on the Wall. Only you can stop him. Harington:
So Sam and Gilly
head towards the Wall
together to go back
to the Night’s Watch. The Nightfort’s closest
to Castle Black. It’s got a secret
sally port. It leads through the Wall
right down into the Nightfort. – Meera: It’s empty.
– Let’s find a place
to sleep. So they come across
Bran and Hodor. Come with us.
We’ll walk straight
to Castle Black. Take us north
of the Wall. Why in the world
would you want to go– I don’t want to.
I have to. Now he comes back
to King’s Landingand, of course,
no one recognizes him.
Step aside,
country boy. He makes it up
to Cersei.And then he sees her.
They just look at each other.
This is really the moment
where he really realizes that “I’m no longer
the same man.” She’s ecstatic
because she’s got the one person
she trusts back.But he comes in
missing the thing
that makes him
who he is as a man.They’re both a bit like,
“Who are you?”
A lot happened since they
haven’t seen each other. After Jon escapes,
Ygritte catches up to him. I have to go home now.
I know you won’t hurt me. You know nothing,
Jon Snow. ( grunts ) ( grunts ) Jon survives
and we find him right
at the end of season threecollapsing off
his horse and being dragged
into Castle Black.
Carry him inside. And we leave him,
not knowing whether
he’ll be safe or not. Under the cover
of nightfall, they send
my best menin through
a side entrance
to the city of Yunkaiand have them murder
all of the slavers.
And so that then they can
release all the slaves.When she finds that
they’ve been successful,
they come back to wait
outside the gates of Yunkai
to see what the fallout
will be.
And then the slaves
come out
and the person
they see is Dany,
the woman
who’s saved them. – Mhysa!
– Mhysa! Clarke:
The word that comes out
of their mouth is “mhysa,”
which means “mother.”And it’s this moment
that Dany for the first timesees what her new dream
is going to be
and she realizes
the possibility of how many
more there are to save.And it’s this wonderful
moment of them looking
to her as a mother
and her kind of accepting
their love
and becoming a leader. ( screeching )( music playing )

  2. Jamie Adair isn't an actor.  He's a detractor.
    I'm too stealth for your series.  You're not enough eerie.
    I'm Jamie Adair the human, with a political science degree and a minor in communications.
    Yo Y'all are dangerous enchanters.  You screw yourself and the detractors.
    Yes, I'm a girl with a camouflage like adaptation.  I mirror others and their ill communications.
    I'm Jamie Adair the refractor.  Y'all are crazy I'm a laughing factor.
    Don't be messing with hip hop music.  I work two ways and you'll never muse it.
    I'm Jamie Adair the rhyming method actress.  I don't care about the robotic digital enchantress. 

    FYI: I'm getting a law degree, and I never watch your forkin' show.  STFU

  3. Why do people keep saying that Sansa had nothing to do with Joffrey's death? She told Olena he's a monster which motivated her to poison him and provided her with the poison on his wedding day, however unwittingly.

  4. Is it worth it to watch after the horrible events of Season 3 episode 9?

    I just can't stomach it. No spoilers please.

  5. sansa doesn't care about marrying someones whose nice, if she did she would of been thrilled to marry Tyrian, shallow stupid whore

  6. @Peter Jackson , this is a season 3 RECAP. It means they explain every major plot detail from season 3. For example, I watched this right before diving into season 4, in case I had forgotten something.

  7. The kids are growing up faster than the story allows. Arya looks older and Bran does too. His voice seems deeper also.

  8. @ 1:10   Pyat Pree has sent a warlock to try and kill me… Well isn't he dead? … yeah he's still alive in the books and still after Daenerys but they've killed him in the show…  What's she saying lol?

  9. Blackfish is so cool at Hoster Tully's funeral when Edmure failed repeatedly to shot fiery arrow at the boat.
    He aims. Check the wind. Release the shot.
    Throw the bow at Edmure. And leave even before the arrow landed.
    All I can say was "Badass!"

  10. They must've been half-acting in this video too since they're definitely given the lines to say …
    but gosh Jaime Lannister's the best character ever 🙂

  11. One would think they had some kind of safety mechanism with their unsullied after five thousand years of slavery, but apparently no one ever had that idea before?

  12. personally I don't think anyone is worthy of sitting on the Iron throne, nearly all of my favourite characters are dead and there is not enough people to stop the white walkers getting over the wall.
    maybe a cleansing is really the best way to go for the realm.

  13. Damn, that season was so good ! Not just the red wedding, but all the build up to it. Roose Bolton when he was still relevant and mysterious, the Brotherhood without banner, Jaime and Brienne on the road… Makes me want to rewatch it all over again.

  14. the way Selmy died was the gayest shit ever, I bet he got killed because all the fan cunts didn't know who he was or thought he was just an old man

  15. Why didn't Snow find Bran. Hodor or one of the others should have went down. The direwolves should have been a hint that Bran and his brother were nearby.

  16. I sort of like the ASOIF where it wasn't the unsullied and the Second Sons but the Mothers Men which is a sect of unsullied and the Stormcrows. But I understand why the TV show left them as the Unsullied and the Second Sons. Character compression is a vital part of any adaptation from book to screen.

  17. Emilia Clarke isn't half as attractive as everyone's wild masturbatory fantasies make her out to be, and she is an atrocious actress.

  18. this recap is soo great when u stopped watching season 3 because of school and now u started the 4th one and ur like wth

  19. "He doesn't rate his chances of survival very high." Yeah, once again up you know nothing, bro.

  20. The emotions in Michelle Fairley talking about how Walder Frey was reveling in their mystery says it all.. She's amazing. Winterfell! Winterfell!

  21. In my opinion Emilia can't really act. She has like 3 facial expressions in total and always looks just tense like she swallowed a spear or something. She never makes you forget that she acts..

  22. When Theon took Winterfell, Rob was supposed to march back to winterfell and deal with Theon. Instead he left his duty to Boltons. When the Kalstarks abandoned camp he was supposed to go after them and deal with it, instead he kept going south. The show made him look but like a good strategist and a fool at the same time. He commanded thousands of men and couldn't appoint 20 men to enter kingslanding and attempt Prison break or kidnaping. At least they should try and fail.

  23. In the book, "A Storm of Swords," it isn't Locke who chops Jaime's hand off.
    After leaving the boat at the Red Fork river, Jaime and Brienne are set upon by mercenaries from Essos, (who were hired to serve the Lannisters but have since switched sides to the Starks,) called the, "Brave Companions."

    They think Jaime's position as a captive is hilarious, and while taking the two of them to Harrenhall their commander, Vargo Hoat, orders Jaime Lannister's sword hand to be chopped off and sent as a morbid message to his father Tywin.

    Everything else is pretty much the same after;
    Roose Bolton is not amused, and allows Jaime to continue his journey to King's Landing without Brienne.
    Brienne gets thrown in the bear pit, and Jaime returns to Harrenhall, and jumps in the bear pit to save her.
    And he even says, off handedly, "Give Robb Stark my regards." to Roose Bolton before leaving.

    Alot of people who have read the books like to complain about how much different the show is from the source material.
    But, I think they did a REALLY good job.

    Naturally, it's not going to be exactly the same. But, for me it was like seeing what I'd read alive and in color on the TV.
    (If you just want the same as the books, you have it!
    The books!)
