Episode 3 wasn't a bad EP(I don't think there is a bad EP) Its my least favorite because it was the EP to me that broke the illusion of your choices mattering. Carley/Doug dying at the same place the same way, and then at the end the choice to save Christa or Omid was a joke, pointless and whoever you save repeats almost the same line. There was other things in the Ep as well.
I know there are similar things in other EPs but for me until EP 3 I still felt my choices were playing a bigger role.
