Official Synopsis – Tyrion joins his brother and sister, Ser Jaime Lannister and Queen Cersei Baratheon, for breakfast. He tells them that he plans to ride to the Wall … and that the maester says that Bran will live. Cersei looks concerned, but Jaime seems mostly miffed, saying that he’d prefer a good clean death, rather than living as a crippled grotesque. “Speaking for the grotesques,” Tyrion replies, “I’d have to disagree … I hope the boy does wake. I’d be very interested to hear what he has to say.” (Source: HBO)


The “beloved siblings” at table

Tyrion walks from the courtyard to the dining hall where his family is eating breakfast.

Tyrion Lannister: Bread. And two of those little fish. And a mug of dark beer to wash it down. And bacon, burnt black.

Jaime Lannister: Little brother.

Tyrion Lannister: Beloved siblings.

An update on Bran’s status

Myrcella Baratheon: Is Bran going to die?

Tyrion Lannister: Apparently not.

Cersei Baratheon: What do you mean?

Tyrion Lannister: The Maester says the boy may live.

Cersei Baratheon: It’s no mercy, letting a child linger in such pain.

Tyrion Lannister: Only the gods know for certain. All the rest of us can do is pray.

Tyrion plans a visit to the Wall

Tyrion Lannister (to Tyrion): The charms of the north seem entirely lost on you.

Cersei Baratheon: I still can’t believe you’re going. It’s ridiculous even for you.

Tyrion Lannister: Where’s your sense of wonder? The greatest structure ever built, the intrepid men of the Night’s Watch, the wintry abode of the White Walkers.

Jaime Lannister: Tell me you’re not thinking of taking the black.

Tyrion Lannister: And go celibate? The whores would go begging from Dorne to Casterly Rock. I just want to stand on top of the Wall and piss off the edge of the world.

Cersei Baratheon: The children don’t need to hear your filth. Come.

More talk about Bran’s condition

Jaime Lannister: Even if the boy lives, he’ll be a cripple, a grotesque. Give me a good clean death any day.

Tyrion Lannister: Speaking for the grotesques, I’d have to disagree. Death is so final, whereas life… Life is full of possibilities. I hope the boy does wake. I’d be very interested to hear what he has to say.

Jaime Lannister: My dear brother, there are times you make me wonder whose side you’re on.

Tyrion Lannister: My dear brother, you wound me. You know how much I love my family.

Winterfell is the seat of the ruler of the North and the traditional home of House Stark. It is a very large castle located at the center of the North, from where the head of House Stark rules over his people.

The castle is located alongside the Kingsroad as it makes its way from the Wall to the capital at King's Landing, more than a thousand miles to the south.
