When his 10-year-old son Bran stumbles on Queen Cersei having sex with Jaime Lannister, her twin brother and a member of the Kingsguard, Jaime pushes Bran out of a tower window, leaving him crippled and comatose. The Starks have declared war on the Lannisters, with Ned’s oldest son Robb winning successive victories and holding Jaime Lannister prisoner. However, his mother Catelyn secretly frees Jaime to ransom her daughters, Sansa and Arya, believed to be captives in King’s Landing.
Sansa is being regularly abused by her betrothed King Joffrey, while a disguised Arya escapes Lannister forces in Harrenhal with the help of the enigmatic Jaqen H’ghar.

After Robb’s death, Lord Roose Bolton is appointed as the new Warden of the North by Lord Tywin.
