Critic Consensus: "Milk" wraps Sharp Objects not neatly with a bow, but with a beautifully executed twist of the knife that lingers long after the credits finish rolling.

Critic reviews for Milk
Its gimlet-eyed curiosity about the damage women can wreak initially felt fresh. It's too bad that's all Sharp Objects was interested in.
But the longer you sit with it, the more fitting this ending feels. "Sharp Objects" was told in flashes; it's only fitting it ends with a bang.
Milk develops a conclusion so breathtaking and harrowing that the sharp objects in the show's inventory pierce deeper than they have before.
While yes, I get that's the nature of a twist, there were very few, if any, warning signs, and the scope of Amma's murderous streak was wide enough to warrant more explanation than conjecture. Ultimately, the finale felt unearned.
The finale of Sharp Objects will no doubt leave viewers with an uneasy feeling.
