Critic reviews for The Queen

Sissy Spacek is amazing! This was such an emotional roller coaster.

We needed The Queen. It's a reminder of what makes television a viable and extraordinary storytelling platform. It also shows that creators Sam Shaw, Dustin Thomason don't need King's direction to stand out.

The music in Castle Rock - courtesy of composer Chris Westlake - has been nothing short of exemplary throughout the entire series, but in "The Queen" is practically becomes a character unto itself.

After half a season of Easter eggs, slow pacing, and pure mood, [Castle Rock] delivered not only the best episode of the series, but one of the best episodes of television in 2018.

In an astoundingly powerful performance, Spacek as Ruth is both the hero and the victim in this story.

The Queen is almost bad for the series, because this is the peak. There's no getting better than this.
