The last time we had all the Starks in one place on Game of Thrones was very early on in Season 1. Since then, the family has been spread thin across the country, while losing members Ned, Cat, and Robb. So will the remaining Starks ever find each other again?

The short answer is no, the Starks do not reunite in any fashion, at least by the fifth books. But here’s where each of them end up.
Bran. Bran continues his venture north of the Wall, where he eventually comes face to face with the Three-Eye Raven. Bran learns that his destiny is to become the next Greenseer, where he has vast prophetic powers, though how he will use these powers remains to be seen.
Sansa. Now that Sansa is at the Eyrie, that’s where she’ll stay for a while. Things aren’t great between her and Lysa, but Littlefinger takes care of that by murdering his new wife. This makes Littlefinger the tentative Lord Protector of the Vale, but he has big plans for Sansa. He arranged a marriage between her and Harry the Heir, next in line to be Lord of the Vale after Robin Arryn, and he plans to reveal her true identity at her wedding.
Arya. Arya ends up further away than any of her siblings, leaving Westeros altogether and ending up in Braavos. While there, she begins training to be a Faceless Man, forever putting away any doubt that she is not the most badass of the Starks.
Jon. Jon Snow becomes Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch after Stannis defeats Mance Rayder’s army. Jon’s tenure is a tenuous one though, thanks to his controversial decision to let the Wildlings through the Wall to live among the Night’s Watch. The straw that breaks the camel’s back occurs when Jon receives a letter from Ramsay Bolton at Winterfell, threatening him, and Jon decides to go to his home and confront him, forsaking his oath to not take part in the politics of the Seven Kingdoms. His Night’s Watch brothers form a mutiny and stab Jon several times. It is unclear if he survives.
Rickon. Rickon has been seen with Osha on the island of Skagos, a savage land that is technically part of the North. Lord Wyman Manderly, a Northern Lord, sends Ser Davos there to retrieve Rickon under the agreement that he will swear his men to Stannis’ cause upon Rickon’s safe return.
Cat. Wait... Cat? That’s right, Cat Stark lives again! Sort of. She is brought back to life by Beric Dondarrion and takes over his role as leader of the Brotherhood without Banners. She’s a little different, though, going by the name Lady Stoneheart and killing anyone who was associated with the Red Wedding. We kind of hope none of the Starks do run into her, actually.
