The Raid by the Gods Eye is a minor engagement in the War of the Five Kings. It is an attack against the Night's Watch by forces of House Lannister under the command of Ser Amory Lorch.

In the booksEdit

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the attack takes place at a holdfast of an unidentified town on the southern shore of the Gods Eye. Ser Amory Lorch is not seeking for Gendry but for Beric Dondarrion and the Brotherhood Without Banners. Lorch and the Lannister men attack the holdfast in which Yoren and his recruits have taken refuge after they refuse to open the gates, although Yoren repeatedly tells Lorch they belong to the Night's Watch and do not take part in the inner conflicts of Westeros. During the confrontation the attackers gain the upper hand and set the holdfast on fire, prompting Yoren to have "Arry" and the other young recruits (Hot Pie, Lommy Greenhands, Gendry and "Weasel") escape. Arya also helps Jaqen H'ghar, Rorge and Biter to escape. Lommy is injured during the raid. The next evening Arya and Gendry return to the holdfast to find Yoren has been killed and bury him.

Three adults from the recruits (Kurz, Tarber and Cutjack) escape too. For several days, the eight survivors travel together. Kurz dies of an injury that he sustained during the raid. Tarber and Cutjack take his possessions and abandon the kids. Lommy's injury worsens, so Arya and Gendry have to carry him.

Arya and her companions reach a fishing village. Arya and Gendry go there in search for food. Gendry is captured by the men of Ser Gregor Clegane. Arya and Hot Pie return to the village at night in attempt to rescue Gendry, but they are also caught. Lommy is killed by Raff the Sweetling, one of Gregor's men. Only Weasel got away, and her fate is unknown. The TV show condenses the two events into one.
