Critic reviews for North of the Border

Figuratively, [Earn's] been stripped bare, can't see due to his own poor choices, with his manhood humiliated, and dancing to another man's merciless tune. All that's missing is "Laffy Taffy" playing over the fight.

The brilliance of Robbin' Season is that this has been a more subtle, emotional journey for all the characters.

As always, Brian Tyree Henry is in fine form as Paper Boi; in a few very slow blinks you can tell this man just wants to jump out the window.

After a string of existential one-offs for the characters of Atlanta, "North of the Border" sees the show's central posse reconvene for a somewhat normal episode.

And there it is: the serialized story that had been hiding in plain sight all along among the seemingly random short stories Atlanta has been telling throughout this superb second season.

Henry gave Al a tough, wounded grace here.
