As we have clearly established, the mutineers are not quite right in the head. They were willing to kill Lord Commander Mormont for nothing more than their own egos. Needless to say, it is not very surprising when they make decisions that don’t always seem on the level. You know, like drinking out of the skull of Lord Commander Mormont.
When they are presented with a newborn baby, Craster’s last child, their leader’s first reaction is to do what he thought Craster would have done, kill the child instantly. After all, they don’t want yet another mouth to feed. The woman tells him that is not what Craster would have done; he would have offered the child as a gift to the Gods.
Oddly enough, he did not need much convincing of this. He took the young child from the woman and handed it to another man, who he “claimed” was heading in that direction.
So, as he was commanded, he takes the child out into the night to offer him to the White Walkers as a gift. He places the child in the snow and covers his face with the child’s blanket.
On his way back to camp, he comes across Jon’s wolf Ghost. Of course, he decides to taunt the wolf with a drink. Unfortunately for him, the response he got from the wolf was not exactly what he desired.
Off in the distance, Bran, Hodor, and the rest of the group can hear the baby crying. Almost instantly, Bran goes into one of his trances. Suddenly, he can see what is going on. He sees Ghost trapped in a cage.
As you can imagine, they all ventured out to find out what was going on. They came upon the Keep, and Bran recognized the men as Night’s Watchmen. Unfortunately, it he doesn’t quite realize that they are not of the Night’s Watch anymore. Before they even knew what happened, the mutineers were quickly at their backs. Almost instantly, one of them is struck down.
Not soon after, we see Bran’s friend and faithful servant Hodor chained up like a dog and scared out of his mind. One of them stabs Hodor in the leg and leaves him on the ground bleeding.
Unfortunately, now that they know who Bran is, this is going to put him, his friends, and his brother in a very precarious position.
