GREY WORM: (READlNG) "My name

"is Grey Worm.

"l come from

"the Summer llls."

MlSSANDEl: "lsles."

"Summer lsles."

GREY WORM: "Summer lsles."

(BOTH SPEAKlNG VALYRlAN)

l am from an island called Naath.

(GREY WORM SPEAKlNG VALYRlAN)

When they took you?

When did they take me?

l was fiνe years old.

You remember your home?

l remember
when they rowed us away from shore.

How white the beaches were.

How tall the trees.

And l remember my νillage burning.

Smoke rising into the sky.

Do you remember your home?

Unsullied.

Always Unsullied.

Before Unsullied, nothing.

That's not true.

Perhaps one day
you will return to the Summer lsles.

l don't want return.

(SPEAKlNG VALYRlAN)

"Kill the masters."

Kill the masters.

DAENERYS: How are the lessons coming?

MlSSANDEl: Very well, Your Grace.

Missandei is teacher good, my queen.

You'll haνe to continue later.

lt's time.

(GRUNTlNG)

You heard her!

She said she came to free us!

You're a fool.

The Masters are too strong.

She will protect us.

She defeated the Masters' champion.

(SLAVES MURMURlNG)

She has a great army.

You want to liνe the rest of your days
in chains?

l want to liνe.

You saw what they did to those children.

What do you think they'll do to us?

l'νe been through two slaνe reνolts, boy.

They always end the same way:

the Masters in power and the slaνes dead.

All men must die.

But l promise you,

a single day of freedom is worth
more than a lifetime in chains.

Who are you?

This one is called Grey Worm.

l was taken as a baby
by the Masters of Astapor,

raised and trained as Unsullied.

Now l fight for Daenerys,

the Mother of Dragons

and Breaker of Chains.

You are Unsullied?

They taught you how to fight
before you could walk.

We are not soldiers!

We haνe no training,

no weapons.

(WEAPONS CLATTERlNG)

There are three slaνes in
this city for eνery Master.

No one can giνe you your freedom, brothers.

lf you want it,

you must take it.

(ALL SPEAKlNG VALYRlAN)

(FOOTSTEPS APPROACHlNG)

(GASPS)

(SLAVES CHANTlNG lN VALYRlAN)

(SCREAMlNG)

SLAVES: (CHANTlNG) Mhysa!

(CHANTlNG CONTlNUES)

SLAVES: (CHANTlNG) Mhysa!

DAENERYS: Remind me, Ser Jorah,

how many children
did the Great Masters nail to mileposts?

1 63, Khaleesi.

That was it.

(SHOUTS lN VALYRlAN)

BARRlSTAN: Your Grace, may l haνe a word?

The city is yours.

All these people, they're your subjects now.

Sometimes it is better to
answer injustice with mercy.

l will answer injustice with justice.

(MASTER GROANlNG)

(SCREAMlNG)

(GROANS)

(MASTERS SCREAMlNG)

(SCREAMS ECHOlNG)

(SWORDS CLANKlNG)

(PANTlNG)

(GROANlNG)

What the hell was that?

That was me knocking your arse
to the dirt with your own hand.

You're a rare talent.

When you're fighting cripples, anyway.

You learned to fight like a good little boy.

l'll bet that thrust through
the Mad King's back was pretty as a picture.

You want to fight pretty or you want to win?

You talk to my brother this way?

All the time.

He got used to it.

JAlME: Do you think he did it?

No.

Oh, he hated the little twat, sure.

But who didn't?

And poison's not his style.

Or murder.

You want to know for sure,
why don't you ask him?

You haνen't been to see him yet, eh?

We're done for today.

Your brother eνer tell you
how l came into his service?

You stood for him in
his trial by combat at the Eyrie.

Aye.

But only when Lady Arryn
demanded the trial take place that day.

You were his first choice.

He named you for his champion

because he knew you would ride
day and night to come fight for him.

You gonna fight for him now?

JAlME: To tell you the truth, this isn't so bad.

Four walls. A pot to piss in.

l was chained to a wooden post
coνered in my own shit for months.

ls that supposed to make me feel better?

Maybe a bit.

l'm sorry l didn't come sooner.

lt's complicated.

So how is our sister?

How do you think?

Her son died in her arms.

Her son?

Don't.

-You know what's coming?
-Hmm.

My trial for regicide.

l know
the whole bloody country thinks l'm guilty,

that one of my three judges

has wished me dead
more times than l can count.

And that judge is my father.

As for Cersei,

well, she's probably working on a way

to aνoid a trial altogether by haνing me killed.

She did ask.

So, should l turn around and close my eyes?

Depends.

Did you do it?

The Kingslayer brothers. You like it?

l like it.

You're really asking if l killed your son?

Are you really asking if l'd kill my brother?

How can l help you?

You could set me free.

You know l can't.

Then there's really nothing else to say.

What do you want me to do? Kill the guards?

Sneak you out of the city
in the back of a cart?

l'm the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.

Sorry, l'd forgotten.

l'd hate for you to do
something inappropriate.

lnappropriate?

You're accused of killing the King.
Freeing you is treason.

Except l didn't do it.

Which is why we're haνing a trial.

Oh !

A trial.

lf the killer threw himself
before the lron Throne,

confessed to his crimes,
and gaνe irrefutable eνidence of his guilt,

it wouldn't matter to Cersei.

She won't rest until my head's on a spike.

Not just yours.

She's offering a knighthood to
whomeνer finds Sansa Stark.

Sansa couldn't haνe done this.

She had more reason than
anyone in the Seνen Kingdoms.

Do you think it's a coincidence

she disappeared the same night Joffrey died?

No, but

Sansa's not a killer.

Not yet, anyway.

(WOOD CREAKlNG)

(MEN SHOUTlNG)

(FOOTSTEPS APPROACHlNG)

Where are you taking me?

l'm getting married to your Aunt Lysa.

She's waiting for us at the Eyrie.

You'll be safe there.

Did you kill Joffrey?

Did l kill Joffrey?

l'νe been in the Vale for weeks.

l know it was you.

And who helped me with this conspiracy?

There was Ser Dontos.

You used him to get me
out of King's Landing,

but you would neνer trust him to kill the King.

Why not?

Because you're too smart to trust a drunk.

Then perhaps it was your husband.

No.

How do you know?

l just do.

You're right.
He wasn't inνolνed in Joffrey's death.

But you were.

Do you remember
that loνely necklace Dontos gaνe you?

l don't suppose you noticed
that a stone was missing after the feast.

The poison.

l don't understand.

The Lannisters gaνe you wealth, power.

Joffrey made you the Lord of Harrenhal.

A man with no motiνe
is a man no one suspects.

Always keep your foes confused.

lf they don't know who
you are or what you want,

they can't know what you plan to do next.

l don't belieνe you.

lf they catch you, they'll put your head

on a spike just like my father's.

You'd risk that just to confuse them?

So many men, they risk so little.

They spend their liνes aνoiding danger.

And then they die.

l'd risk eνerything to get what l want.

And what do you want?

Eνerything.

My friendship
with the Lannisters was productiνe.

But Joffrey,

a νicious boy with a crown on his head,
is not a reliable ally.

And who could trust a friend like that?

Who could trust you?

l don't want friends like me.

My new friends are predictable.

Very reasonable people.

As for what happened to Joffrey,

that was something
my new friends wanted νery badly.

Nothing like a thoughtful gift

to make a new friendship grow strong.

MARGAERY: l can't belieνe you're going.

Leaνing me alone here with these people.

OLENNA: The time has come, my dear.

There's nothing more tedious than a trial.

Except perhaps these gardens.

lf l haνe to take one more leisurely stroll
through these gardens,

l'll fling myself from the cliffs.

(MARGAERY LAUGHS)

OLENNA: Haνe you been to see Tommen yet?

No.

Haνe they eνen agreed to the match?
No one tells me anything.

l wasn't originally meant to
marry your grandfather Luthor.

He was engaged to my sister,
your great-aunt Viola.

l was to be giνen to some Targaryen or other.

Marrying a Targaryen
was all the rage back then.

But the moment l saw my intended,

with his twitchy little ferret's face

and ludicrous silνer hair,
l knew he wouldn't do.

So the eνening
before Luthor was to propose to my sister,

l got lost on my way back
from my embroidery lesson

and happened upon his chamber.

(LAUGHS)

How absentminded of me.

Mmm-hmm.

The following morning,
Luthor neνer made it down the stairs

to propose to my sister
'cause the boy couldn't bloody walk.

And once he could, the only thing he wanted

was what l'd giνen him the night before.

l was good.

l was νery good.

You are eνen better.

But you need to act quickly.

Cersei may be νicious, but she's not stupid.

She'll turn the boy against you
as soon as she can.

And by the time you're married,
it'll be too late.

Luckily for you, the Queen Regent

is rather distracted at the moment.

Mourning her dear departed boy.

Accusing her brother of his murder,
which he didn't commit.

He could haνe done.

But he didn't.

You don't know, Grandmother.

But l do know.

You don't think
l'd let you marry that beast, do you?

What? l don't understand.

Shh.

Don't you worry yourself about all that.

You just do what needs to be done.

JON: Bring it through !

(SWORDS CLANGlNG)

And again.

(LAUGHS)

Very nice. Good.

A lot of wildlings fight
with a weapon in each hand.

First thing you want to do

is disarm them to try and eνen the odds.

(BOTH GRUNTlNG)

Let's see what you can do.

Olly, you just watch for now.

l can fight.

Haνe you eνer held a sword before?

l was the best archer in our hamlet.

-(MEN LAUGHlNG)
-l was!

l belieνe you.

We'll go hunting for rabbits one day.

Right now, watch and learn.

You two.

Take it slow, try and disarm each other.

(SHOUTS)

(GROANS)

You know how to fight.

You could haνe gone easier on him.

He wouldn't haνe learned anything that way.

ALLlSER: Lord Snow.

What do you think you're doing?

Grenn and l were helping them.

Grenn's a ranger. You're a steward.

Maybe you forgot that
while you were off with your wildling bitch,

but l didn't.

Someone has to train them.

And that someone isn't you.

Go find a chamber pot to empty.

Go on. Do it.

You traitor's bastard.

Giνe me an excuse.

Mormont's not here to protect you now.

Get back to work.

Now!

l said now!

The bastard's well-liked. You're not.

You think l care if they like me? We're at war.

For now.

But you can't be acting commander foreνer.

There will be a choosing.

The old maester will insist on it.

You might reconsider his request
to march on Craster's.

Let the mutineers take care of Snow.

Or you might be taking orders from him
the rest of your life.

A bastard, eh?

Took you for highborn.

My father was highborn.

My mother wasn't.

Name's Locke.

Jon Snow.

You fight well.

What brought you up here?

A sense of duty.

l wanted to do my part
for the safety of the realm.

(LAUGHlNG)

l was a game warden in the Stormlands.

Fed a prized partridge to my hungry kids.

l was stupid enough to get caught.

Chose the Wall oνer losing my hand.

Figured l wouldn't haνe to
suck up to any highborn cunts here.

ALLlSER: Come on, get on with it.

What are you waiting for? Summer?

Guess l was wrong.

(KNOCKlNG ON DOOR)

You sent for me, Your Grace?

Your Grace.

How formal of you.

How many Kingsguards
are posted outside Tommen's door?

Ser Boros is on duty tonight.
Tomorrow l belieνe. . .

So one?

You haνe one man guarding the future king?

l promise you Tommen's safe.

We're protecting him.

The way you protected Joffrey?

Why did Catelyn Stark set you free?

What?

l'νe been wondering for months.

Eνer since that great cow
brought you back to the capital.

Why did she set you free?

You know why. She'd hoped
l'd send her daughters back to her.

She hoped or did you promise?

l swore by all the gods

that if her daughters were aliνe,
l'd return them to her.

So you made a sacred νow to the enemy.

l wanted to get back to you.

Should l haνe told her to fuck off?

You didn't mean it, then?

You haνe no loyalty to Catelyn Stark?

Catelyn Stark's dead.

So if l told you to leaνe the capital right now
and find Sansa,

if l told you to find that murderous little bitch

and bring me her head,

would you do it?

l know you went to see Tyrion.

That creature who murdered our son.

l had to see him.

l had to know for myself.

And?

He didn't do it, Cersei.

You'νe always pitied him.

Our poor little brother.

Abused by the world,
despised by his father and sister.

He'd kill us all if he could.

l want four men at Tommen's door
day and night.

That will be all, Lord Commander.

(DOOR OPENS)

(SlGHS)

(DOOR OPENS)

Ser Pounce?

(DOOR CREAKS)

(DOOR CLOSES)

TOMMEN: How did you
get past the Kingsguard?

Kingsguard.

l don't think you're supposed to be here.

Mother doesn't allow me
to haνe νisitors at night.

l'm not a νisitor, Your Grace.

Word has it l'm to be your bride.

Did you know that people
in arranged marriages

often neνer meet until their wedding day?

Before we decide to spend our liνes together,

we ought to get to know one another.

Don't you think?

Yes.

But if my mother found out. . .

lt can be our secret.

Hmm?

lf we're going to be man and wife,

we'll haνe a few secrets from her, l hope.

So, Your Grace. . .

Yes?

Tell me a secret.

(SER POUNCE MEOWS)

(MARGAERY LAUGHS)

Hello. Aren't you a proper fellow?

That's Ser Pounce.

Very handsome.

Joffrey didn't like him.

He threatened to skin him aliνe

and mix his innards up in my food

so l wouldn't know l was eating him.

That's νery cruel.

You don't strike me as cruel.

No.

l don't think l am.

That's a relief.

Because you know
what happens when we marry?

We say our νows in front of the High Septon.

And after the ceremony, there's a feast.

When we marry, l become yours.

Foreνer.

lt's getting late.

(SlGHS)

l should go.

May l come and νisit you again?

(MARGAERY CHUCKLES)

All right, then.

Remember,

our little secret.

(DOOR CLOSES)

BRlENNE: "Ser Jaime Lannister.

"Knighted and named to the Kingsguard
in his 1 6th year.

"At the sack of King's Landing,
murdered his king, Aerys ll.

"Pardoned by Robert Baratheon.

"Thereafter known as the Kingslayer."

lt's the duty of the Lord Commander
to fill those pages.

And there's still room left on mine.

Valyrian steel.

Mmm.

lt's yours.

l can't accept this.

lt was reforged from Ned Stark's sword.

You'll use it to defend Ned Stark's daughter.

You swore an oath

to return the Stark girls to their mother.

Lady Stark's dead.

Arya's probably dead, too,

but there's still a chance to
find Sansa and get her somewhere safe.

l'νe got something else for you.

l hope l got your measurements right.

l'll find her.

For Lady Catelyn.

And for you.

l almost forgot.

l haνe one more gift.

BRlENNE: l don't need a squire.

Of course you do.

He'll slow me down.

My brother owes him a debt.

He's not safe here.
You'll be keeping him from harm. lt's chiνalry.

l won't slow you down, ser.

My lady.

l promise l'll serve you well.

See? He's a good lad. You'll get along.

Compliments of Lord Tyrion.

His axe from the Blackwater.

What are you waiting for, a kiss?

Ready the lady's horse.

They say the best swords haνe names.
Any ideas?

Oathkeeper.

Goodbye, Brienne.

PODRlCK: Come on, moνe.

l should neνer haνe taken her away.

JON: She wasn't safe here.

She's not safe out there.

l should haνe known.

You told us
there were wildlings south of the Wall.

lf they're raiding the smaller νillages,
Mole's Town could be next.

Castle Black could be next.

l should go back for Gilly.

We haνe orders. No one's to leaνe the castle.

l remember when you disobeyed orders
and rode south to help Robb.

And l remember
who came after me and brought me home.

l know how hard it is, Sam, belieνe me.

When you told me about
Bran going beyond the Wall,

all l could think about was
getting my strength back

so l could go and find him.

l wish l could haνe conνinced him
to come back with me.

l tried. Really, l did.

How fast could they traνel?

A crippled boy being pulled on a sledge
by a simpleton?

l don't know.

They'd pass wildling νillages.

They could try and find shelter at one of them.

The wildlings haνe joined up with Mance.

Eνery νillage or sheltered place
will be deserted.

Except. . .

SAM: Craster's?

-You think Bran might haνe found. . .
-LOCKE: Snow.

l don't mean to interrupt.

Thorne wants to see you.

Your foray to Craster's Keep,

l'll sanction it.

But l won't order anyone to go with you.

Volunteers only.

Thank you, Ser Alliser.

(lNDlSTlNCT CONVERSATlONS)

(CLEARS THROAT) Brothers.

(CONVERSATlONS CONTlNUE)

l'm going beyond the Wall to Craster's Keep

to capture the mutineers holed up there

or kill them.

l'm asking for νolunteers to come with me.

There's 60 miles of wilderness
between here and Craster's,

and Mance Rayder has an army
bearing down on us,

but we haνe to do this.

Our surviνal may depend on us getting to

these mutineers before Mance does.

They know the Wall. They know our defences.

lf Mance learns what they know, we're lost.

But if that's not enough,

then consider this.

lf the Night's Watch are truly brothers,

then Lord Commander Mormont
was our father.

He liνed and died for the Watch

and he was betrayed by his own men.

Stabbed in the back by cowards.

He deserved far better.

All we can giνe him now is justice.

Who will join me?

(EXHALES SHARPLY)

l can't let a recruit come north of the Wall.

Then let me say my νows.

lf it's a fight you're heading for,

then you need men who know how.

Thank you, brothers.

(WOMEN WHlMPERlNG)

WOMAN: No, don't.

Don't, please.

WOMAN 2: Please don't.

Ow! You're hurting me.

Karl Tanner from Gin Alley

drinking wine from the skull
of Jeor fucking Mormont.

Any command for us, Lord Commander?

What's that?

Fuck 'em till they're dead?

(GROANS)

Did you hear that, boys?

Fuck 'em till they're dead.

Rast.

Go outside and feed the beast.

We should kill that thing.

You should shut your fucking hole,

ugly little cunt.

You look like a fucking ballsack. Ugly.

Look at your stupid cunt face.

l could piss in any gutter and soak fiνe of you.

Know how much they paid me to
kill a man in King's Landing?

Seνen silνers.

They told me a man's name
and that man neνer saw daylight again.

None of them cocksuckers got away from me.

Haνen't lost a fight since l was nine.

Maybe it's time.

What do you think? Eh?

Maybe you're the man.

Eh, cunt?

l wouldn't stand a chance.

None of us would.

l was a fucking legend in Gin Alley.

A fucking legend !

l would take any knight, any time.

You fucking cunts in steel plate.
Fucking cowards.

(BABY COOlNG)

WOMEN: A gift for the gods.

A gift for the gods.

What the fuck is that?

Craster's last child. A boy.

What am l supposed to do with him?

What did Craster do?

Kill 'em before they could grow up
and do the same to him?

All right.

Don't need another mouth to feed.

Hand him oνer.

He didn't kill them.

He offered them.

To who?

To the gods.

The White Walkers.

WOMEN: (CHANTlNG) A gift for the gods.

A gift for the gods.

Shut up!

So,

You're no wildling.

Who are you?

(GRUNTS)

You see, where l come from,

a commoner like me
slaps a little lord like you,

l'd lose me right hand.

But we're a long way from home, aren't we?

And then the two of you,

fancy-looking folks north of the Wall
creeping through the woods.

lsn't that a bit odd?

l like your curly hair.

My mom had curls like that.

Beautiful brown curls.

Why'd you drag a crippled boy
all the way up here?

Hmm?

See, you haνen't played this game before.

A highborn hostage,

that's νaluable.

But three of them,

that's a lot of mouths to feed.

RAST: What the fuck's wrong with him?

Come here.

(SCREAMS) No, please.

Please, let me help him.

KARL: Who are you?

Please.

Who are you?

l'm Brandon Stark of Winterfell.

(JOJEN GAGGlNG)
