The scene filmed at Maine bridge

(Season 1, Episode 2: “The Kingsroad”)

While Prince Joffrey and Sansa were enjoying a walk near the riverbank, they encountered Arya and Mycah playfully sword fighting with wooden sticks. Joffrey, amused by Mycah’s desire to be a knight, taunted him with his real sword. Even though the boy was intimidated and tried to explain he only had a wooden stick, Joffrey maliciously cut Mycah’s face. Arya’s anger boiled over, and she struck Joffrey with her stick. As he tried to attack her with his sword, Arya’s direwolf Nymeria appeared, biting Joffrey’s right arm and knocking him to the ground. Arya then picked up the sword, pointed it at Joffrey, threw it into the river, and fled with her direwolf.
