Official Synopsis – In Castle Black’s courtyard, Jon Snow trains under the direction of Ser Alliser Thorne and has no trouble besting the other recruits in combat. (Source: HBO)



The last time we saw Jon, he and Tyrion were seeing the Wall for the first time.


At Castle Black, in a courtyard. Grenn and Jon are swordfighting, Jon getting the best of him and breaking his nose.

Alliser Thorne: If that were a real sword, you’d be dead. Lord Snow here grew up in a castle spitting down on the likes of you. Pyp. Do you think Ned Stark’s bastard bleeds like the rest of us?

Pyp steps forward and with one move Jon has him on his back.

Alliser Thorne: Next!

Jon quickly dispatches of another newcomer, we see Lord Commander Jeor and Tyrion looking on from a balcony.

Alliser Thorne: Next!

Another man starts againt Jon Snow, as another joins, Jon defeats the two of them almost instantly.

Alliser Thorne: Lord Snow, it appears you’re the least useless person here. Go clean yourselves up. There’s only so much I can stomach in a day.

Tyrion and Lord Commander talking, overlooking the courtyard.

Tyrion Lannister: A charming man.

Jeor Mormont: I don’t need him to be charming. I need him to turn this bunch of thieves and runaways into men of the Night’s Watch.

Tyrion Lannister: And how’s that going, Commander Mormont?

Jeor Mormont: Slowly. A raven came for Ned Stark’s son.

Tyrion Lannister: Good news or bad?

Jeor Mormont: Both.

The Wall / Castle Black

The Wall is a colossal 700 ft. fortification stretching 300 miles along the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms manned by the Sworn Brothers of the Night's Watch. It was constructed eight millennia ago, in the aftermath of the Long Night to defend the realm against the White Walkers who apparently dwell in the far north, though they are now considered myths by most.
