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.





The pace is finally picking up. [Sept 2015, p.79]

A Nest of Vipers must be the shortest of the episodes we've seen so far, but it is probably the best one. And at the same time it sets the mood for an epic epilogue.

Despite an increase in action, Game of Thrones continues to disappoint with a sidenote storyline.

One half is just a stuffing, the other half is a very successful overture to the final episode. Next time it could be great.

Game of Thrones is the only Telltale saga since The Walking Dead that you don't want to miss. Hours of impossible choices and grief await you in the first five episodes. From the way things look so far, the ending can only be a terrifying doomsday.

Episode 5 is part conclusion, part setting up for the climax.

It's a great episode, probably the best so far, and creates great anticipation for the season finale.

“Why do the gods continue to shit on this house?” asks Sir Royland, shaking his fist up at the sky and its oily, vague shades of blue. It’s a question I’ve asked myself again and again throughout this series, and one Telltale has avoided answering far too many times.
