No one is quite sure what to make of the initial appearance of a red comet in the sky. Stannis has been seeking advice from Melisandre thanks to Cressen, who serves as his advisor. She wants Stannis to take the throne by killing Renly Baratheon, his brother.
Renly and Stannis Baratheon are attending Catelyn Stark's meeting. They intend to fight the following morning. Sansa is defeated by King Joffrey because her brother Robb won a battle against the Lannisters.
In the event that King's Landing is attacked, Tyrion orders his alchemists to prepare wildfire. Bran, Jojen, Osha, Meera, and Rickon escape Winterfell. Theon makes an effort to locate them. A wilding woman is captured by Jon Snow and his party, and she informs them that the wildings are looking for something in the mountains to help them break through the Wall.
The wildings seize Jon Snow's group. He pretends to be with them so the Night's Watch can spy on them. As they emerge from the Winterfell crypts, Bran, Rickon, Meera, Jojen, and Osha observe that everything has been destroyed. Osha takes Bran and Rickon; Jojen and Meera travel north in search of the three-eyed crow.
