Critic reviews for Secrets
The ongoing disappearance of Sophia, coupled with the confinement of a TV series designed as a cinematic spectacle to the same few locations, are examples of how cost-cutting measures can alter the scope in the show's formative years.
We thought this was a good-to-excellent episode, with some much-needed emotional payoffs and some small plot and character developments that felt like something new was being added to the story.
There was actually quite a bit of strong character drama, which ultimately made this a satisfying episode.
'Secrets' is an important arc episode. Plot threads that have been dangling since early in the first season - Shane and Lori's affair - are brought out into the open, as are more recent revelations like Lori's pregnancy and the barn full of walkers.
