A Storm of Swords
Lem and his companions stumble upon Arya Stark, Gendry and Hot Pie digging in a garden. After some archery from Anguy, they convince the three young travelers to accompany them to the Inn of the Kneeling Man. Arya breaks Lem's nose with a tankard before learning that Harwin is Lem's ally.
Lem is skeptical of the ghost of High Heart and he believes that Beric's survival after horrific wounds is due to the healing skill of Thoros of Myr, although it is actually magical in nature. Lem is a supporter of the Lord of Light, however.
A Feast for Crows
Lem's nose heals poorly. He continues to be a member of the brotherhood after Lady Stoneheart takes command. He hunts north along the Green Fork in search of the Mad Dog of Saltpans, the leader of a savage sack of the town.
Lem is delayed in returning to the the crossroads inn, and he arrives after Brienne of Tarth duels Rorge, Biter attacks Brienne, and Gendry slays Biter. Lem decides to wear the Hound's helmet he took from Rorge's corpse, which Thoros opposes. Lem is present at the hangings of Brienne, Podrick Payne, and Ser Hyle Hunt, during which he implies to Brienne that his wife and daughter are dead.
