Critic Reviews for Save the Last One

It's possible, I suppose, to make an argument that the highway traffic jam we've been stuck in for the better part of two episodes... is a necessary intermezzo for a show with literally nowhere to go.

We guess what we're saying is, we love this show, we think it's a lot of fun, but it's frustrating week in and week out dealing with such reactive characters all the time.

We're back in the fields of Adam, and Cain has struck down Abel. The barbarian has returned. Shane has devolved. And The Walking Dead just got more interesting.

"Save the Last One" was a great episode of The Walking Dead - I'd say my favorite episode since the pilot, in fact. It had scary zombie scenes, good action, interesting character interaction and a revelation at the end that gave us a whole lot to process.

To be honest, I'm not sure I've ever seen a more selfish act of self-preservation on a television show before.

What worked in "Save"? A fair amount, I'm happy to say. Glenn got more lines, and honest to God, I think any number of this show's problems could be solved by just making sure he gets to say his piece each week.

In the third installment of season two, The Walking Dead took a dark turn, which isn't easy for a show about the zombie apocalypse.

The latest episode of The Walking Dead invites the audience to contemplate a fate worse than death.
