Critic reviews for No Room at the Inn

Thanks to impeccably crafted character development leading to dramatic and meaningful conflict, "No Room at the Inn" proved to be one of the series' best episodes to date.

Matt's a man who won't shut up, who won't back down, who isn't just fighting for a better future for his family but a better present, too. He's not afraid to look crazy, he's willing to suffer. He's willing to work. If he's crazy, we should all be.

Even more than "Two Boats," "No Room at the Inn" was a fascinating, unsettling look at blurry how the line can grow between religious belief and madness.

This episode still was able to take Matt's new Miracle/Jarden situation and turn it into something uniquely awful - while also being sadly sweet and beautiful.

When was the last time you were awestruck by an hour of television?... That's how I felt after watching The Leftovers Season 2 Episode 5, which was simply one of the most powerful hours of dramatic entertainment offered in a long time.

One of England's best character actors, [Christopher Eccleston] is perfect throughout, bringing to life that strange alien-like presence that so many men raised in strict religious households carry with them.
