-Sansa is in Kings landing. She was to wed King Joffrey until Ser Loras Tyrell offers him his sister Margaery. His small council encourage Joffrey to cast Sansa aside and wed Margaery instead. He agree's to this and Sansa thinks that she is now free to go home. However Littlefinger warns her that won't be the case and offers to help her.
-Arya, has escaped Harrenhal with Gendry and Hot Pie with the help of Jaqen H'ghar.
