This third episode is entitled ‘The Sword in the Darkness,’ and it follows multiple characters from across many locations, from the Wall, to King’s Landing, and all the way across the seas to Mereen. Characters such as Margaery Tyrell, Cersei and Tyrion Lannister, and Jon Snow all make appearances, as they did in previous chapters, but now alliances and rivalries will clearly begin to aid, or hinder, the player based on their choices made in earlier episodes.
Here is the summary of Episode Three’s plot, provided alongside the trailer:
“Asher, the exile, heads to Mereen in search of an army to take on the Whitehills. Meanwhile, far across land and sea in Westeros, Mira must deal with the lethal politics of King’s Landing. Her family’s safety is paramount and she will do anything to protect them, but nothing is given freely, and her choice of allies may soon come to haunt her. To the north, in Ironrath, the Whitehill occupation continues. Gryff Whitehill, fourth-born son, is out to prove himself, and brutality and violence grows daily, pushing the Forresters to make far-reaching decisions. Finally, at the Wall, Gared learns that he must head north if he is to help his house survive. But fate is cruel, forcing choices that will change his path forever.”
