Game of Thrones: Episode Six – The Ice Dragon review by Simon Williams.
Following the inevitable announcement of a second season of Telltale’s Game of Thrones, it’s no surprise that The Ice Dragon feels more cliffhanger than climax, but there’s still enough meat here to keep fans ticking over until their next fix.
All three storylines get equal screen time. Mira has to choose between Margaery, Cersei and saving her own skin. At Ironrath, the Forresters and their pitiful remaining forces prepare to defend their ancestral home against overwhelming odds. Meanwhile, beyond the Wall, Gared finally reaches the mysterious North Grove.
Of course, this being Game of Thrones, it’s hardly a spoiler to reveal that events end messily, with blood and betrayal flowing thick and fast. There’s a lingering feeling that your choices across the storylines ultimately do little to affect the course of events, but this is countered by another strong script and some interesting additions to the mythos of Westeros.
