Critic reviews for The Covenant
While Quinn still has a long way to go before he's back to his old self (if that ever even happens), it was good to see him headed in the right direction. Hopefully the show follows suit - and soon.
Cliff-hangers, beatdowns in Brooklyn, weird foreign cigarettes... I'm back in.
This season is preparing to pit Dar and Carrie against each other in an epic showdown that's been a long time coming.
Its unifying feature thus far is its increasingly explicit criticism of actions masquerading as "security" that in fact make us far less safe.
Saul's operation is the most interesting thing going on here, and probably the only storyline I don't hate so far this season.
