Critic reviews for Sock Puppets

Plot wise, I enjoy that this whole thing goes down.

So little happens in "The Other Side," episode 14 of The Walking Dead's seventh season, that it's incredibly easy to summarize the "important" parts, which amount to fewer than five minutes of the running time.

This was another great outing, and I find myself looking forward to the next twists and turns in a way I haven't with Homeland for several years.

With intrigue and action, "Sock Puppets" brought the characters into emotional confrontations as they tried to sort out who to trust and where their own loyalties ultimately lie.

This was another quality hour that leaves viewers just disoriented enough before the final three episodes to not entirely be sure what will happen next.

It's a strong episode largely because it's built on five-and-a-half seasons of drama.
