Critic Consensus: Cult's penultimate episode manages to squeeze out a juicy twist and give Ally some much needed agency.

Critic reviews for Charles (Manson) in Charge
Whatever the case, this season has been one wild ride, that's for sure. I'd have to say it's my favorite since "Coven" on the whole, and arguably the most cohesive, "Roanoke" notwithstanding.
If nothing else, this episode convinced me that Butte, Montana, is the scariest place on earth.
Speaking of Kai's overzealousness...Evan Peters had quite an episode, balancing his Manson portrayal with Kai's impending breaking point.
Cult sputtered and stalled here right at the end of the season, with one more episode to go, as Kai's story became overly murky and his motivations difficult to track.
