INT. CASTLE BLACK - JON SNOW'S ROOM
Longclaw is lying on a table. DOLOROUS EDD lifts and admires it, then turns to JON SNOW who is putting some items in a bag.
DOLOROUS EDD: Where you gonna go?
JON SNOW: South.
DOLOROUS EDD: What are you gonna do?
JON SNOW: Get warm.
JON SNOW smiles. DOLOROUS EDD places Longclaw on the table.
DOLOROUS EDD: I was with you at Hardhome. We saw what's out there. We know it's coming here. How can you leave us now?
JON SNOW: I did everything I could. You know that.
DOLOROUS EDD: You swore a vow.
JON SNOW: Aye, I pledged my life to the Night's Watch. I gave my life.
DOLOROUS EDD: For all nights to come.
JON SNOW: They killed me, Edd! My own brothers. You want me to stay here after that?
A single horn sounds outside. JON SNOW and DOLOROUS EDD look to the doorway.
MAN (O.S.): Riders approaching!
MAN #2 (O.S.): Open the gate!
CUT TO: CASTLE BLACK - COURTYARD
The southern gates open. SANSA, BRIENNE, and PODRICK enter the courtyard on horseback. The Night's Watch and the Wildlings all watfch them. TORMUND stares intently at BRIENNE. The trio dismount from their horses. JON SNOW and DOLOROUS EDD emerge onto a balcony overlooking the courtyard. SANSA slowly spins around until she and JON SNOW lock eyes. JON SNOW descends from the balcony and walks to SANSA. They stare at each other and then embrace.
CUT TO: CASTLE BLACK - JON SNOW'S ROOM
JON SNOW and SANSA are sitting by the fire. SANSA lifts a bowl to her lips and drinks from it.
SANSA: This is good soup. Do you remember those kidney pies Old Nan used to make?
JON SNOW: With the peas and onions?
JON SNOW: We never should have left Winterfell.
SANSA: Don't you wish we could go back to the day we left? I want to scream at myself, “Don't go, you idiot.”
JON SNOW: How could we know?
SANSA: I spent a lot of time thinking about what as ass I was to you. I wish I could change everything.
JON SNOW: We were children.
SANSA: I was awful, just admit it.
JON SNOW chuckles.
JON SNOW: You were occasionally awful. I'm sure I can't have been great fun. Always sulking in the corner while the rest of you played.
SANSA: Can you forgive me?
JON SNOW: There's nothing to forgive.
SANSA: Forgive me.
JON SNOW: All right. All right, I forgive you.
SANSA laughs, then holds out her hand for JON SNOW's horn of ale. JON SNOW gives it to her. She sips, then coughs. JON SNOW laughs.
JON SNOW: You'd think after thousands of years, the Night's Watch would have learned how to make a good ale.
SANSA: Where will you go?
JON SNOW: Where will we go? If I don't watch over you, Father's ghost will come back and murder me.
SANSA: Where will we go?
JON SNOW: I can't stay here, not after what happened.
SANSA: There's only one place we can go. Home.
JON SNOW: Should we tell the Boltons to pack up and leave?
SANSA: We'll take it back from them.
JON SNOW: I don't have an army.
SANSA: How many wildlings did you save?
JON SNOW: They didn't come here to serve me.
SANSA: They owe you their lives.
SANSA stands and walks to a table. She places her bowl down on it.
SANSA: You think they'll be safe here if Roose Bolton remains Warden of the North?
JON SNOW: Sansa.
SANSA: Winterfell is our home. It's ours and Arya's and Bran's and Rickon's. Wherever they are, it belongs to our family. We have to fight for it.
JON SNOW: I'm tired of fighting.
JON SNOW stands and turns to face SANSA.
JON SNOW: It's all I've done since I left home. I've killed brothers of the Night's Watch. I've killed wildlings. I've killed men that I admire. I hanged a boy younger than Bran. I fought and I lost.
SANSA: If we don't take back the North, we'll never be safe. I want you to help me. But I'll do it myself if I have to.
CUT TO: CASTLE BLACK - BALCONY
MELISANDRE is looking out over the edge of the balcony. DAVOS approaches her.
DAVOS: My lady.
MELISANDRE: Ser Davos.
DAVOS: Will you stay here at Castle Black?
MELISANDRE: I will do as Jon Snow commands.
DAVOS: You serve Jon Snow now?
MELISANDRE: He's the prince that was promised.
DAVOS: Forgive me, my lady, I thought that was Stannis.
MELISANDRE walks away from DAVOS and down into the courtyard. DAVOS follows her.
DAVOS: What happened down there?
MELISANDRE: There was a battle. Stannis was defeated.
MELISANDRE continues to walk away, but DAVOS grabs her arm to stop her.
DAVOS: And Shireen? What happened to the princess?
BRIENNE: I saw what happened. I saw Stannis' forces defeated in the field.
DAVOS: My lady, I'm Ser Davos Seaworth.
BRIENNE: We've met before. I was Kingsguard to Renly Baratheon. Before Renly was assassinated with bloodmagic.
BRIENNE stares at MELISANDRE.
DAVOS: That's in the past now.
BRIENNE: Yes, it's in the past. It doesn't mean I forget. Or forgive. He admitted it, you know.
DAVOS: Who did?
BRIENNE: Stannis. Just before I executed him.
BRIENNE walks away. MELISANDRE walks in the opposite direction. DAVOS stares at BRIENNE.
