Now with two deaths on his hands, Bigby has no more time to be delicate as the episode trailer hints at. Bigby will have to find leads soon because the Fable community is spiraling into panic and his reputation as sheriff seems to be in peril. “Smoke & Mirrors” brings popular Fables Blue Beard and Jack of Fables into The Wolf Among Us. Their involvement can only mean that Bigby’s job will be even tougher now.
The trailer for the “Smoke and Mirrors” can be seen below.
The Wolf Among Us had an incredible first episode that expertly introduced a complex world and various interpersonal dynamics that dictate it. “Faith” had Telltale’s signature flair for strong dialogue and creating mature character relationships. It has been a long wait for episode 2, especially with the bomb dropped at the end of “Faith.” But if the trailer for episode 2 is any indication, it will be well worth the wait.
