It's been a little while since the last episode of Game of Thrones, but as always it has been well worth the wait.
By now you'll know that each of the characters have their own problems to resolve, although If you thought the previous episodes were rather tame, then Game of Thrones: A Nest of Vipers (Episode 5) will have your attention from the off, because here the gloves are finally off and you'll be making some rather big life or death decisions which will have your jaw on the floor in the way that only Game of Thrones can offer.
As always, the nasty Ramsay is causing trouble in this latest episode, while Rodrick has to deal with the traitor within his house. Elsewhere Mira’s gets caught in the middle of Cersei and Tyrion Lannister, in what is quite a small role for her in this episode. Gared meanwhile doesn't progress his story much, although there is some rather interesting action to take part in, while he also spends time getting to know Cotter's sister.
Meanwhile, in Meereen, Asher has to find some allies to help with the fight back in his homeland, which leads to some interesting action scenes, although what really makes this episode interesting is the ending, which is very dramatic and leaves the player with an almost impossible choice to make. The ending along makes playing the whole episode very worthwhile, although you'll likely want to make sure that you have played the previous episodes to get the most out of the game.
Game of Thrones: A Nest of Vipers is probably one of the most exciting episodes yet and sets things up nicely for the final episode. It'll be very interesting to see what happens as things come to a conclusion. I for one, can't wait.
