Critic reviews for The Assassin

"The Assassin" may have missed his mark, but the episode was a satisfying continuation of last week's momentum. With only three episodes left in Season 2, The Strain will hopefully make a long drive straight through to the finish.

"The Assassin" as a whole is a neatly written, well edited package with a lot of quality characterization and plot in 41 minutes where all story threads converge clean and set up new things for the final few episodes.

Of course, it is our choice and ours alone to keep tuning in, and with a few episodes left this season, Rudyard and Quinlan (and, heck, even Coco) provide just enough incentive to continue donating one percent of the space in our DVRs.
