The scene filmed at Maine bridge

Arya Attacks Joffrey

Prince Joffrey and Sansa are going for a walk near the riverbank when they hear some noises nearby. They encounter Arya and Mycah who are playing sword fight with wooden sticks.


Joffrey is amused by the fact that the boy wants to be a knight so that he challenges him by drawing he´s real sword. The boy seemingly intimidated says that he has only a wooden stick and that Arya asked him to practice with her. But Joffrey enjoys the situation and he slowly cuts Mycah with his sword over the chick.


Arya becomes so angry that she hits Joffrey with her stick over his back. He attacks Arya trying to hit her with his sword but suddenly Arya’s direwolf Nymeria appears, bites Joffrey’s right arm and throws him to the ground. Arya picks up the Sword and points it towards Joffrey but then she throws the sword into the river and disappears with her direwolf. (Season 1, Episode 2: “The Kingsroad”)
