In the Red Keep, where Joffrey is taking up the court, where a singer named, Marillion, is brought upon, accused of him singing a rude song for the Royal family. The song was about King Robert & Cersei, that though the King was killed by a wild boar, the lion in him was emasculated beforehand in bed. He was forced to sing the song, which later raged the King. He, then, also told them that he has met Catelyn & Sir Rodrik before & that he has also accompanied Tyrion to the Vale of Arryn. After asked by the king, what he could live without, his hands or his tongue, he vaguely responded that no one can live without hands. The King therefore, ordered his tongue to be cut. Later, he carried Sansa to the Wall to boast about his act of killing her father’s head by forcing her to look at it, hung on a spear. After struggling for a time, she gazed with an outsize, deep anger in her. He then stated that soon she would find Robb’s head beside, which she restated by Robb bringing her, Joffrey’s head. Ser Meryn Trant beat her on orders & the King then moves away. Sandor Clegane grabs her & wipes off the blood, off her lips as Joffrey proceeds.

Greatjon Umber, frustrated by the ‘either-or’ situations, stands up firm by spitting on the ground & declares that there is only one worthy King in the North, & that is Robb. The bannermen, supporting Greatjon, bows down before the new King of the North, swearing loyalty.

When asked about why he pushed Bran from the tower, he does not clear the thought, but tells her in a wish to kill him.
