Do you enjoy bar fights? Murder mysteries? Hairy men with short tempers? Short men with hairy tempers? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then you should be already playing Telltale Games’ The Wolf Among Us, a series about choice and consequence based on the Fables comics by Bill Willingham.
Telltale has come under fire in the past for overly long waits in between the release of installments in its episodic game series, but it now looks like the studio has figured out a schedule where new episodes of The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead are released approximately every two months, meaning that there’s one new episode of each series every few weeks.
The most recent release was ‘In Harm’s Way,’ the third episode of The Walking Dead season 2, which means that next up is ‘In Sheep’s Clothing,’ the penultimate episode of The Wolf Among Us. To tease the events to come, Telltale has released the first three screenshots from ‘In Sheep’s Clothing,’ along with an episode synopsis:
“Has the Wolf met his match? Beaten and bloody, Bigby is confronted by the realization that a society built on secrets is ripe for exploitation. And that the disenfranchised of Fabletown may see his prey not as the cause of their problems, but as their solution. Constantly caught between ‘the rules’ and doing the right thing, Bigby must tread a path fraught with danger in this penultimate episode of ‘The Wolf Among Us.'”

Towards the end of the last episode it was certainly looking like Bigby was about to get sent to the meat locker, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that he ends up in one. Could that first screenshot be where his hunt for the mysterious “Butcher” takes him?
The other two images don’t give much away, but given how badly Bigby got busted up by Tweedledum, Tweedledee and Bloody Mary it’s impressive that a few bandages are all that’s needed to patch him up. The screenshot of Bigby and Nerissa is intriguing, since it’s pretty clear that quite a few secrets are hiding behind the enchantment that secures her discretion, and she may even know who it was that killed Faith and Lily.
Telltale hasn’t yet given a release date for ‘In Sheep’s Clothing,’ but typically the release of screenshots precedes the episode release by a couple of weeks, so expect The Wolf Among Us to continue in early June.
