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.

After four successful episodes, Nest of Vipers is a borderline disaster. It feels rushed and sloppy compared to the ebb and flow of the previous episodes. I enjoyed some of the banter between characters, and look forward to seeing what comes next for Gared, but Telltale bit off more than it could chew with the action in this episode.

Despite feeling rather hurried, "A Nest of Vipers" brings the adventure to a head. ...This episode wasn't as tight as its predecessors, but was still able to deliver some strong character moments and enough twists to keep us guessing.
