Romans

EPISODE:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Castle Rock ends its first season on an ambiguous note, but still wraps up its narrative arc neatly enough -- and, of course, drops plenty of Stephen King Easter eggs.

Critic reviews for Romans

One could argue it's anti-death penalty and even anti-violence, which despite a few narrative hiccups, is quite the unexpected conclusion for a series set in the home of Stephen King's many evil creations.

The scenes in the holding cells between Holland and Skarsgård were electric.

This show taps into that fear, just as King does, in remarkable form.

So, the book closes on this first season of Castle Rock and, altogether, this viewer found it to be a rather satisfying experience: ambitous, genuinely strange and (especially with "The Queen") incredibly emotional.

Castle Rock attempts to tie up its loose ends with an anticlimactic finale that suffers from too much style and not enough substance.

Frankly, given how daring this season has been at times, the season finale this week, titled "Romans," is a bit of a letdown... As a way to wrap up the major themes of this season, though, "Romans" mostly works.
