Summary

In this penultimate episode, the actions of every Forrester are vital to the survival of the house. Rodrik’s alliance with House Glenmore, and his defiance of the Whitehills, has drawn the ire of an even greater threat: Ramsay Snow. Far across the Narrow Sea in Essos, with Meereen now a free city, Asher is close to securing the army he desperately needs to return home, and save his family. In King’s Landing, Mira’s activities at Tommen’s coronation have not escaped the attention of Margaery Tyrell, and Cersei has realized that the handmaiden may prove useful in her political games. Finally, beyond the Wall, Gared’s unlikely allies are reluctant to help in the search for the North Grove… but this far into the frozen wilds, Crows and Free Folk have a common enemy; and winter is coming.

As you noted, Telltale's Game of Thrones has been so fun largely because of characters and decisions that really put the screws to you, where you know that your choices may have unforeseen (and potentially deadly) consequences. The big reveal I mentioned? That scene succeeded because in the space of a few minutes, it forced me to reckon with all the decisions I'd made while playing as the character in question.

However, despite the occasionally poor animations and the poor handling of the passage of time, Telltale’s Game of Thrones: Episode 5 – A Nest of Vipers presents its players with some stressful, tough choices, and uses QTEs in an fun way. It will be exciting to see where the last episode will take House Forrester, and whether they will meet their downfall or their saving grace.

Still, this is once again a second-to-last episode that ends up being the weakest episode. No matter how accomplished I feel, I know that I’m not actually doing anything. I know nothing is changing. I know next episode I’m going to feel powerless again, and everything I did in this previous episode will barely be addressed. ...Just don’t expect this episode to feel rewarding. Look at it as something you have to do for the inevitable finale.
