Critic Consensus: Fueled by a powerhouse performance from Kristin Chenoweth, "Come to Jesus" offers a sumptuous feast for the eyes -- if not a completely climactic season finale.

Critic reviews for Come to Jesus
I love everything about this show besides the war. I love that it took its sweet time even getting to Easter.
As with Gaiman's book, this is a meandering masterpiece. The thrill is in the journey, the destination very much an afterthought.
Now that the show has finally spent its share of time on stories, it's arrived at a chilling crossroads, ready to bring along with it everything that set its first eight hours apart.
As an episode on its own, the hour was a strong one, filled with a few great moments, stunning visuals (as always), and excellent performances.
"Come to Jesus" ends American Gods first season by arriving at the beginning of the real story in a promising, sometimes puzzling finale that promises greater rewards to come.
