Chapter Summary Edit
On the fourth day of the siege in the High Places, Dogman, Logen, Crummock and the rest are still fighting, this time with the Easterners. During the fight on the walls Logen spots Shivers in trouble, fending off three assailants at once. After briefly considering whether he would be better off with Shivers dead, Logen races his to his aid. Meanwhile in the tower, Dogman’s archers are struggling with the rain mucking up their strings and fletchings. Only by wasting more arrows than they can spare, can they kill the men trying to break down the gate.
On the wall, Logen and Shivers fight back to back, losing ground and gaining ground in equal parts. As Bethod’s men begin to get the best of them, Logen feels his body go cold and knows what’s coming. Just as the Bloody-Nine is about to take hold, Crummock joins the fight. When the Hillmen prevails in driving off the Easterners, Logen is able to force his alter-ego away for now.1
That night, Logen and Dogman can’t help but wonder what’s become of The Union. Shivers approaches them. When Dogman leaves the two alone, Shivers thanks Logen for saving him. He might not have done the same and wonders why Logen did. Logen just tells him it was the right thing to do; he’s trying to be a better man.
