I thought it was the best episode so far by a large margin.

Agree 100 percent. I'm generally impressed how close the quality of the game comes to the TV series but this episode was the closest yet.

It's a solid episode, but it all feels like build up so far...which is not a bad thing, but the series needs it's 'fire' if you get what i mean?

Pretty shocked at this score. I really enjoyed this episode, probably my favorite of the series so far

The Game of thrones series has yet to really impress me, it's decent, but TellTale can do better. I think it won't come into it's own till the second season, there's a lot of build up to be had

Same here, it was the best of the three so far. I loved every moment and the choices were very difficult to make. I knew what decisions to make, but that didn't make it any easier.

I hear you, but like i said, the series (so far) feels like constant build up. It's a tricky task to make 4 stories compelling, and connected, so i can see why it's all build up, but i still think TellTale can do better. I don't tend to throw out high scores, 6/10 is above average.

But they're following the formula of the tv show. Would you assert the tv show suffered from the same problem? The show in the 4th season was still building the story line. I don't see that as a valid criticism.
