Critic Consensus: "A Murder of Gods" wades into politically charged storytelling while advancing American Gods' first-season arc -- and firmly establishing the show apart from its source material.

Critic reviews for A Murder of Gods
Oh boy, somebody call for the God of Hot Takes (me) because "A Murder of Gods" sure felt topical.
Two episodes to go and the chessboard is nearly set-up. Storm coming? Oh yes.
From the opening scene to the closing scene, this episode was nothing short of poetic.
A Murder of Gods takes us deeper into the fledgling allegiances that are beginning to define American Gods' developing factions. Oddly enough, rivalries are bringing people together rather than dividing them.
By once again using other languages, American Gods shows that you don't have to know exactly what someone is saying to make their story worthwhile. To see someone's humanity, you just need to believe in them.
