Critic Consensus: "Falling" finally provides some answers, but the fairytale-esque horror story unfolding hardly bodes well for Camille's sanity going into the series finale.

Critic reviews for Falling
Tying together the series' murder-mystery and Camille's personal odyssey, which were thought to be largely separate up until now - could've gone off the rails... Instead, the culmination proves emotionally resonant and makes for one juicy twist.
As breathtaking as it is compulsive, "Falling" sets the wheels perfectly in motion for the miniseries' bound-to-be shattering conclusion.
Personally, I appreciate the way Sharp Objects turns that anticipation on its head, demonstrating its priorities by deferring others; this is a story not about specific crimes, but the culture that led to them and the women who still endure it.
The answers to the series' ongoing mysteries start to fall into place at a breakneck speed.
I'd love to know what Adora has on Vickery because he doesn't seem to get all that much out of their "relationship" to keep her sick secrets close to the vest.
