Arya and Gendry first meet when travelling north together. Arya is disguised as a boy, but Gendry soon sees through that. Arya is escaping the capital because her father was killed and the Lannisters are looking for her. Gendry was given to the Night's Watch, to protect him because he is King Robert's bastard, a fact he is unaware of at the time. Their group is captured and they are forced to work at Harrenhal. Arya orchestrates their escape by using a promise made by Jaqen H'ghar. They are soon picked up by the Brotherhood without Banners. Gendry wishes to join the Brotherhood, but is instead sold to the Red Priestess Melisandre.
