Critic Consensus: "Chapter 5" provides a satisfyingly scary conclusion to Roanoke's first story arc -- and sets up a quick change of course.
Critic reviews for Chapter 5
Perhaps the most interesting sequence... [was] when Mott's ghost leads the Millers to the pig farm where they had previously found those cute little feral boys suckling at the teat of a giant pig (you, of course, will remember this image).
But more interesting than theepisode itself is the previews for next week, which as promised shows a bit of different flavor.
I don't much care about beating this drum every week, but the writers have done nothing with the format and it's more than worn out its welcome. The good news? The format might be done, as of this episode!
As much as everyone was anticipating the return of Peters, let's take a moment to acknowledge the real MVP here...Doris Kearns Goodwin?
"Chapter 5" doesn't waste time before giving us the first big revelation of the week.
