Perhaps age and the formulaic (for better and worse) nature of The Walking Dead means that it is becoming harder to really appreciate the nuances.

Episode three In Harm's Way is quite possibly the most defining moment not only in season two of The Walking Dead, but it's also a defining moment in Clem's character development.

"In Harm's Way" is even more brutal and violent than the season premiere, but Telltale manages to hold it together.

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 3: In Harm's Way manages to up the ante of Clementine's new adventures in a great way while developing her character, not just the people that surround her. New survivors are introduced and it's going to be interesting to see if the little girl can continue making grown-up choices.

I don't need to be a passive viewer of any more zombie stories, especially in 'The Walking Dead' universe. The proof is in this episode's finale, which I conveniently forgot to mention until now. It's a brilliant scene, something I won't spoil, but it's brilliant because I was a part of it. Everything else uncomfortably unnerved me, I was watching a TV show with a dialogue wheel. I never touched the story, and so the story rarely touched me. That's the cost of promising a video game and delivering a script.

The thought of where Telltale will head with Episode 4 will fill the mind with excitement, and if it's as good as In Harm's Way, we're probably looking at another helping of shiny videogame trophies come awards season.

[E]pisode three is a strong one and definitely delivers on gore and tension. Here's hoping the last two episodes continue to deliver.

The final ten minutes or so make it worth the purchase, and I really liked where the Carver storyline ultimately went here, but don't be surprised if you get a bit bored getting to that point.

The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 3 – In Harm's Way is another strong addition into an already compelling universe. While the new setting is shallow and lacks much exploration, it's the phenomenal storytelling and new characters introduced that help compel the player to move forward.
