The episode begins with Winterfell Theon waking up alone in bed. He chews out his men for letting Hodor, Bran, Rickon and Osha escape. One of his men points out Theon was busy having sex with Osha, so he beats and stomps on him. They head out after the Stark boys, bringing Maester Luwin with them. Meanwhile, Theon tells Luwin he won't kill the boys if he finds them soon. He's counting on his sister and her men to beat Robb's men back to Winterfell. The dogs start barking. But way ahead, the Stark boys are clear. They didn't bring enough food, but Bran doesn't want to risk stopping at a nearby farm and putting the family there at risk if Theon catches up to them. The Stark boys remember two young orphan boys that live there...

Episode Quotes
Theon Greyjoy: A cripple. You let a cripple escape. The boy can't walk, but somehow he slipped past you.
Lorren: The giant must've took him.
Theon Greyjoy: The giant? Hodor? Oh, that's all right, then. You let a halfwit escape with a cripple. And Rickon too, the little one?
Lorren: Gone. Along with the Wildling woman. The one you were f--king.
Theon Greyjoy: Right. Get the horses. And the hounds.

Tywin Lannister: Wolfsbane. A rare substance. This is no common assassin.
Gregor Clegane: We hanged twenty men last night.
Tywin Lannister: I don't care if you hanged a hundred. A man tried to kill me. I want his name and I want his head.
Gregor Clegane: We think it was an infiltrator from the Brotherhood Without Banners.
Tywin Lannister: Pretentious name for a band of outlaws. We can't allow rebels behind our lines to harass us with impunity. We look like fools and they look like heroes. That's how kings fall. I want them dead, every one.
Gregor Clegane: Killing them isn't the problem. It's finding them.
Tywin Lannister: Have you gone soft, Clegane? I always thought you had a talent for violence. Burn the villages, burn the farms. Let them know what it means to choose the wrong side.

Arya Stark: Visenya Targaryen was a great warrior. She had a Valyrian steel sword she called "Dark Sister."
Tywin Lannister: Hm. She's a heroine of yours, I take it. Aren't most girls more interested in the pretty maidens from the songs? Jonquil, with flowers in her hair?
Arya Stark: Most girls are idiots.
Tywin Lannister: You remind me of my daughter. Where did you learn all this stuff about Visenya and her Valyrian steel sword?
Arya Stark: From my father.
Tywin Lannister: He was a well-read stonemason? Can't say I've ever met a literate stonemason.
Arya Stark: Have you met many stonemasons, my lord?
Tywin Lannister: Careful now, girl. I enjoy you, but be careful.

Sansa Stark: Does it give you joy to scare people?
Sandor Clegane: No, it gives me joy to kill people.

Jaime Lannister: I'm not well suited for imprisonment. Shocking, I know. Some men are. Ned Stark...I imagine he made an excellent prisoner right up until the end. Not me, though...my life has left me uniquely unfit for constraint.

Tyrion Lannister: It's just you, me, and Joffrey. The Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm.
Cersei Lannister: I'm sure you'll make a point eventually.
Tyrion Lannister: He needs to start acting like a king. This war you started is coming to our doorstep. And if the entire city wants Joffrey dead...
Cersei Lannister: I'm not the one giving the boy whores to abuse.
Tyrion Lannister: I thought the girls might help him.
Cersei Lannister: Did you?
Tyrion Lannister: I was wrong!

Ygritte: You could be free too. You don't need to live your whole life taking commands from old men. Wake up when you want to wake up. I could show you the streams to fish, the woods to hunt. Build yourself a cabin and find a woman to lie with in the night. You're a pretty lad. Girls would claw each other's eyes out to get naked with you.
Jon Snow: Walk.
Ygritte: I could teach you how to do it.
Jon Snow: I know how to do it.
Ygritte: You know nothing, Jon Snow.

Episode Goofs
Editing Error:

Guest star David Sheehan, who plays a Stark Guard, has his name spelled incorrectly in the credits. It is spelled instead as 'David Sheenan.'

Cultural References
Muammar Gaddafi: 'A Man Without Honor' was filmed shortly after Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was killed, and filmed.

The footage of the mob surrounding his body loosely inspired the scene where Jaime Lannister is captured and dragged into camp by soldiers who want him killed.
