Critic reviews for eps.2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx
It's an almost unbearably tense sequence-an unbearably tense episode, actually.
For a moment the show lets us think that, in the wake of killing Susan Jacobs, Darlene is cold enough to let one of her own people...rather than put herself at risk of getting caught. But she discovers that it's a line she's not willing to cross.
Season two has essentially been a car crash in slow motion, and watching everyone try to escape their seats before the inevitable impact is incredibly compelling.
The tightest and most suspenseful installment of the season, bringing various story threads together...moving forward with a relentlessness making clear something very bad was about to happen. And then it did.
What we did get was actually some of the show's strongest material this season, but it doesn't fully make up for the long, dead stretches in "eps2.8h1dden-pr0cess.axx".
