Arya and Gendry are riding south with the outlaws, including Greenbeard, Tom, Lem, Anguy, Harwin, and Jack-Be-Lucky. Hot Pie decided to stay at the inn to make bread. Harwin has told Arya what happened to him and the others that Eddard sent to bring Gregor to justice.1 Gregor's raids had been a ruse to draw Eddard out where he could be killed or captured and exchanged for Tyrion, and Lord Tywin had a trap prepared. Tywin had not anticipated that Eddard would break his leg and Lord Beric come instead. They were ambushed as they crossed at Mummer's Ford and hit from all sides. Gregor killed Ser Raymun, while Ser Gladden and Lord Lothar perished as well. Alyn was able to restore order and extricate them, but only twenty men remained, and Lord Beric was seriously wounded by a lance to the chest. Thoros stayed with him and prayed all night, and the next morning he was stronger again.2 When they learned Robert and Eddard were both dead, Lord Beric announced that they would fight on in Robert's name to protect the people until the war was over or they were all dead. Soon, they began attracting more followers, mostly commoners. The group stops at a seemingly abandoned village one night, where the people are actually hiding in secret cellars. There, they learn that Jaime has escaped. The next day, Arya realizes they are not going to Riverrun, but that she is being brought before Lord Beric instead. She makes a break for it, but is soon caught by Harwin. She promises not to escape again, at least for the moment.
