Critic reviews for The Name Game

Just when you think American Horror Story: Asylum can't possibly get more Baroque, it shimmies up a gilded spire and tosses a zillion putti at your head until you beg for mercy.

For all its conflicts, 'The Name Game' isn't nearly as crazy as some episodes that have come before it, but mainly that's because it's still picking up the pieces after the Lee Emerson (Ian McShane) holiday disaster at Briarcliff.

I feel like we should work "The Name Game" from final scene to first scene since the entire episode just kept getting crazier and crazier!

I will say this is one episode that demands your full attention, even as it skips over more details than I would have liked.

Tonight's episode spent a little bit of time getting us reacquainted with our favorite patients and caregivers of Briarcliff, but quickly got back into the crazy head games, battle between good and evil and even threw in a few surprises.
