Summary

Asher, the exile, heads to Mereen in search of an army to take on the Whitehills. Meanwhile, far across land and sea in Westeros, Mira must deal with the lethal politics of King's Landing. Her family's safety is paramount and she will do anything to protect them, but nothing is given freely, and her choice of allies may soon come to haunt her. To the north, in Ironrath, the Whitehill occupation continues. Gryff Whitehill, fourth-born son, is out to prove himself, and brutality and violence grows daily, pushing the Forresters to make far-reaching decisions. Finally, at the Wall, Gared learns that he must head north if he is to help his house survive. But fate is cruel, forcing choices that will change his path forever.

"The Sword in the Darkness" is Game of Thrones' best episode to date, but at the midpoint of the series, I feel like tensions are just beginning to boil. ...The pieces have been set, we know the stakes and the "heroes" of this story have set up a shaky sort of plan to fight for their place in the world. This episode did a great job of quickening the pace of the story while offering the player the sort of hard choices that make Telltale games such terrible fun to play.

This episode mostly consists of conversations, but moves along at a nice pace, thanks in large to the tough choices tied to most of the conflicts at hand. Given that I often chose to poke the hornet’s nest, I leave this episode unconvinced my characters will survive another day. With three episodes remaining, Telltale’s scribes have a tall challenge in front of them, as it feels like the end is seconds away from unfurling.

While Episode 3 of Telltale’s A Game of Thrones still has some problems, it’s certainly learning more about how the Game of Thrones narrative progresses. Its low points are still kind of disappointing and boring, but its high points are truly phenomenal. It’s these set pieces like the fight with the dragon, the standoff against an invading house, and the fated confrontation atop the wall, that make Episode 3 a treat to play and make me very excited to see what Telltale has in store for Episode 4.
