Chapter 19 Summary

Arya and the others are struggling to survive in the middle of the war torn riverlands. Three of the men survived the attack, but one has died of his wounds and the other two decide to abandon the orphan boys and Arya shortly after. Now, she and Gendry try to lead Hot Pie and an injured Lommy, who has to be dragged in his litter. They have also saved a crying girl, though now she no longer cries. They call her "Weasel." Lommy is angry at Yoren, and he believes that they should have yielded. When they reach a village, Arya and Gendry walk closer to investigate. They split up, and Arya watches as Gendry is caught. Arya leaves to retrieve Hot Pie. They return and Arya plans for each of them to attack one of Gendry's guards. When Hot Pie sees the men, he immediately "yields." They take Hot Pie and Arya captive. When they find Lommy, he yields as well. He points out that he cannot walk so they will have to carry him. The men laugh and simply kill the orphan boy. Arya realizes that Ser Gregor Clegane, the Mountain that Rides, has captured her. He is looking for Lord Beric Dondarrion, who has been attacking the Lannisters.
