Critic Reviews for He Deserved to Die

Woo-hoo! It's about damn time we started unraveling this whole Lila Stangard murder sitch. And we got way more detail in this one episode than we have in the past six, and what we learn sets up for next week's shocker: the dead girl's story.

Rebecca's personality shone through tonight and should have won over some hard-eyed viewers who weren't keen to open their hearts to her.

I didn't hate everything about this episode. In fact, I really liked most of the moments when Rebecca was nowhere to be found.

The show is subtly reinforcing the idea that things like calling out racism or rape culture are mere tools used by cynical people to get what they want, instead of true socio-political critiques of the culture.

I had two qualms (see below), and Lila's pregnancy could be seen from a mile away, but all in all, it was another rollercoaster outing.

Man, this show is good. And we are so close to finding out hashtag who killed Sam.
