Scorn = dislike/have contempt for

Arse = ass.

When Ned entered the throne room at the end of Robert's Rebellion, he found Jaime seated on the iron throne, and has distrusted Jaime ever since.

Jaime feels that Ned should have thanked him for killing the king, given how brutal Aerys was toward Ned's family. But instead Ned judged him as a king slayer, an oath breaker, and a Lannister with his own ambitions to the throne.
