Louis de Richet continues his investigations and adventures on Lord Mortimer’s island, where he seeks his mother. After endless intrigue, Mortimer is finally starting to unveil his ultimate plan…
The stakes continue to grow in this third episode, and Louis must decide where he stands. Many guests are growing desperate, and it will take all of Louis’ influence to prevent the situation from growing out of hand. Louis will also have the chance to finally come face-to-face with his mother – but this may not be the family reunion he wishes for.
Continue your adventure in The Council Episode 3: Ripples, where plots are laid bare, characters reach their breaking points, and an unexpected, terrifying truth is uncovered.
After the awful showing of Episode 2, I had absolutely no expectations going into this one. But hey, I came away relatively pleased and somewhat looking forward to what is to come next. The underlying issues that have plagued every episode thus far still persist here, but at least The Council is finally utilizing its strengths in the best way possible, despite its flaws.
The Council - Episode 3: Ripples gives a little more attention to dialogues and intrigues, leaving puzzles and riddles in the background. The ending, again, is not intriguing enough, but we already complained about this when reviewing previous episode.
