Critic Reviews for Git Gone

One of the cooler aspects of "Git Gone" was how differently Ricky Whittle plays Shadow with and without Laura in his life.

... the show toppled that format for an hour-long look at the life of a depressed, hurting, lonely and a confused young woman, both before and after her untimely death.

For the most part, Git Gone works far better than it has any right to.

The humor was refreshing. This episode acted as a palate cleanser for what is sure to be a fast-paced second half of the season.

But [Emily Browning] do it as a person that the audience now has some real investment in. Laura Moon was a part of Shadow in the American Gods novel. Laura Moon is a woman I care about on the TV show.

Once again, [Betty Gilpin is] magnificent, a live wire of grief, anger, and bitter black humor. Her eyes seem perpetually red and wet, like she's immediately to one side or the other of a nasty crying jag.

Its strongest instalment yet.

Despite the episode's flaws, it also gives a pretty solid look at depression without going out of its way to call it out or make it seem out of the norm.

Laura isn't aspirational, but it's weirdly refreshing to see such a messy female character in a male-dominated show.

Laura is great at manipulating people to get them to do what she wants them to do--in life and in death.
