Critic reviews for You're No Rose
By depicting Thack as an obviously sick man, we're forced to sympathize with his modern suffering while wincing at his period-specific arrogance and bigotry.
The devilishly intrigued look on Thackery's face is the perfect oh s--- alarm that smash cuts to black.
More often than not, though, 'The Knick' isn't a historical show that takes a judgmental stand. It's really agnostic on everything and more about exploring this world.
The sad scene with Lucy was book ended by the episode's emotional high point, when Thackery and Edwards made up.
[The prayer meeting is] creepy and disturbing and, if not for the fact that this show is capable of far greater horrors, would be the most wondrously unsettling moment of the episode. But that follows.
