After the little screenshot teaser we got yesterday, Telltale has officially given us the release dates for Episode 5 of their Game of Thrones series, A Nest of Vipers, along with a rather nerve-wracking trailer for those who have been following the story:
Tuesday of next week is the earliest we will be able to continue the story of the Forresters of Ironwrath, as their situation grows more and more dire. The blurb gives us an idea of what to expect, and things don’t look pretty:
"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."
Hopefully, with the end approaching fast, this episode gives us a bit more to sink our teeth into than the last few, which have been rather circular in their attempts to give us hope for the family before tearing us right back down. Given Martin’s propensity for killing off main characters, though, it’s anyone’s guess who, if anyone, will survive the next two episodes.
