Critic Reviews for Freakin' Whack-a-Mole

It's kind of thrilling to see Annalise taken down by someone - and Wes with a bit of backbone for a change.

Boy, what a doozy of an episode-possibly the show's best so far, which is really saying something.

Alas, here we are, at the end of "Freakin' Whack-a-Mole," and I'm feeling a little better about some of the problems I've been having with the show lately.

Part of the reason this episode may have seemed a little fresher was because the team had a goal that seemed righteous, for once, and a client who didn't seem sleazy in some way.
