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'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.
Aside from the fantastic acting and superb writing, this week's installment delivered even more scares than usual.
