Donal Noye and Jon have done the best they could to fortify Castle Black from the impending attack of Styr and his raiders. The Castles along the Wall were designed defenseless, for what greater defense was there than the Wall itself? When the Magnar Styr and his men attack, many of the defenders die, while Jon and Satin fire arrows from one of the roofs. Jon has Ygritte in his sights but he cannot loose an arrow at her.
Finally Donal Noye fires the powder kegs he had placed along the lower staircase of the Wall. The Magnar and the rest of his men perish as the staircase and a section of ice from the Wall crushes them. Amidst the destruction, Jon finds Ygritte, shot through the chest with a crossbow, and the woman he loved dies in his arms.
