Critic Reviews for Jennings, Elizabeth

[Claudia's] panicking. With one episode left, so are viewers. There's a lot to wrap up in a finale that's set up to be a fast-moving thriller. What's next is anyone's guess, but what's come before is all but perfect.

It doesn't feel like we're at the end of the story. And that's the magic of this absorbing drama: Regardless of all the spywork and espionage and murder and derring-do, these are just people living out their everyday lives.

What's surprising is how this episode allowed some of the major figures - especially Elizabeth - to fundamentally change who they are.

It was a quick, straightforward episode, proceeding on interwoven Elizabeth, Philip, Stan and Oleg tracks.

The idea of the male anti-hero has felt stale for some time, which is one reason why Elizabeth's journey-which hits its highest stride in this penultimate among the most exceptional character arcs in the history of TV.

So much of "Jennings, Elizabeth" is so thrilling... that it's easy to overlook some of the more frustrating aspects of the episode, and by extension, this final season.

It's a catharsis of cruelty.

Brilliant performances all around for this one with taut directing and excellent pacing. Not a moment of time was wasted making all of the proceedings feel as dreadful as Philip must have felt running for his life after three years in the clear.

May 24, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

When it comes to the series' brilliant, methodical loosening of the Cold War's grip... it seems to me fitting that its most ardent fighter, its lone survivor, its final girl, should be the indomitable Jennings, Elizabeth.

If the series doesn't end with Mail Robot escaping the FBI to right wrongs and break hearts across the great American landscape, we write a strongly worded petition to FX. Beyond that, I am ready for anything - anything - the series wants to throw at us.

There's not much of a critical summation to episode nine other than it does a terribly fine job setting up an uncertain series conclusion.

Hoo boy. Elizabeth really doesn't do anything halfway, does she?
