Critics Consensus

"Sicut Cervus" offers up plenty of action, drama, and mystery, but it's the focus on family dynamics -- and a change of setting -- that bring out the best in the episode.

Critic Reviews for Sicut Cervus

The flashback to the farm storyline seems ill-advised given the better at sea premise, but the show definitely has momentum heading to the mid-season break.

Fear the Walking Dead's ability to pull new meaning from events we've seen before is why it stands on its own as a series.

May 25, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

It's nice that there are still enough people left on earth on Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 6 to provide the most shocking of scenes.

"Sicut Cervus" took us to a new, fresh location full of possibilities.

The best part of this episode was actually the family drama.

The stakes are so much higher when the argument is about kids and family instead of nautical protocol, and the show suddenly remembered its own history just enough to give the conversation another kick.

"Sicut Cervus" is the first dud of Fear the Walking Dead's otherwise compelling second season. It doesn't add much to the show's overarching narrative, beyond sowing seeds for future strife.

At long last, just a week before the "midseason finale" and when our crew has finally found their supposed paradise, Fear the Walking Dead has taken a far more interesting turn toward the weird.

As objectionable as his actions clearly are, I don't think Chris is irredeemable. Not yet, anyway.

Nick is still the one most likely to survive, but Celia's influence over him is going to become a problem. At least they aren't stuck on the Abigail anymore.

"Sicut Cervus" is a reasonably diverting hour of television, with enough action, drama, and mystery that even newcomers could enjoy it.

One of my favorite things about this show is that it constantly makes you wonder "What would I do?"
