Where do your loyalties lie?  Your house or your queen?  Your brothers in arms or your family?  Actually, you probably shouldn’t answer that; that servant boy over there looks a little shifty.  Don’t worry about trusting us though; we’ll keep all your secrets safe.  This week we recap episode 3 of Telltale’s Game of Thrones.  This installment puts us in the middle of some crucial decisions, which we’re sure will turn out for the best and result in mutual benefit for all involved.  On an unrelated note, can you hold this dagger?  Oh no, that isn’t a blood stain; it’s just rust.
