Where were Arya, Cersei, Bran, Tyrion and Hodor when Season 2 ended?
Jon Snow (Kit Harrington)
Jon Snow joins the Night's Watch on a journey north of the wall to find Jon's uncle Benjen and his unit. Jon runs afoul of Craster, then captures a Wildling woman named Ygritte, who quickly recognizes how easy he is to manipulate. She gets the upper hand, turns Jon into her prisoner, and captures his commander, Halfhand, preparing to lead them both to their executions. Halfhand decides to make his own death count, talking Jon into killing him in combat so he can seem plausible as a traitor and get close to Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall.
