Official Synopsis – Sansa enjoys her journey to the capital, especially one afternoon when Joffrey invites her to take a walk along the Trident River. They come across Arya and Mycah, the son of a butcher, practicing their sword-fighting with sticks. Joffrey pulls his own sword – cold steel, rather than a tree branch – and holds it to the boy’s cheek, taunting him. When Joffrey draws blood, Arya smacks him with her stick. The prince comes after her, swinging savagely with his sword as she dodges. Her wolf Nymeria jumps in, biting Joffrey’s wrist. Arya throws the prince’s dropped sword into the river and runs off into the forest. (Source: HBO)

In a field next to a river, off from where everyone else is.

Mycah: I’ll get you!

Sansa Stark: Arya!

Arya Stark: What are you doing here? Go away.

Joffrey Baratheon: Your sister? And who are you, boy?

Mycah: Mycah, my Lord.

Sansa Stark: He the butcher’s boy.

Arya Stark: He’s my friend.

Joffrey Baratheon: A butcher’s boy who wants to be a Knight, eh? Pick up your sword, butcher’s boy. Let’s see how good you are.

Mycah: She asked me to, my Lord. She asked me to.

Joffrey Baratheon: I’m your prince, not your lord, and I said pick up your sword.

Mycah: It’s not a sword, my prince. It’s only a stick.

Joffrey Baratheon: And you’re not a Knight. Only a butcher’s boy. That was my lady’s sister you were hitting, do you know that?

Arya Stark: Stop it!

Sansa Stark: Arya, stay out of this.

Joffrey Baratheon: I won’t hurt him… Much. Filthy little bitch!

Sansa Stark: No no, stop it, stop it, both of you. You’re spoiling it. You’re spoiling everything!

Joffrey Baratheon: I’ll gut you, you little cunt!

Sansa Stark: Arya!

Arya then steps in and fights with Joffrey, disarming him and putting him on his back. Her direwolf sees this as a thread and runs in to defend.

Arya Stark: Nymeria!

Joffrey Baratheon: Please don’t.

Sansa Stark: Arya, leave him alone. My prince, my poor prince, look what they did to you. Stay here, I’ll go back to the inn and bring help.

Joffrey Baratheon: Then go! Don’t touch me.
