Bran accidentally goes into Hodor's mind using his abilities and knocks him out. Orell orders Jon to kill the old man to test Jon's loyalty. When Jon is unable to kill the man, the wildlings realize Jon is still loyal to the Night's Watch and attack him. Hearing that his brother is in trouble outside, Bran uses his powers enter his direwolf. With the help of the direwolf, Jon is easily able to defeat the attacking wildlings, leaving Tormund and Ygritte alive. After the fight, Jon flees on a horse.
