Theon Greyjoy and Jeyne Poole escape Winterfell, and are discovered by Mors Umber. Crowfood asks Jeyne questions about the castle to confirm her assumed identity of "Arya Stark", such as the names of servants, including the smith and the cook. Jeyne immediately answers with Gage's name, and Mors assumes the cook died during the sack of Winterfell.
Mors: When last I was inside those walls, your cook served us a steak and kidney pie. Made with ale, I think, best I ever tasted. What was his name, that cook?
Jeyne: Gage. He was a good cook. He would make lemoncakes for Sansa whenever we had lemons.
