Critic Consensus: Though it relies on familiar themes, "Nebraska" successfully addresses the fallout of the previous episode and forges ahead slowly but confidently.

Critic reviews for Nebraska
The fact that episode author Evan Reilly has to rehash this weighty claptrap yet again... only serves to highlight the narrative cul-de-sac this show has written itself into, one not even a four-wheel drive, product-placed Hyundai could escape.
There is life after death of a different kind on AMC's The Walking Dead as the survivors deal with the discovery that little Sophia was a zombie.
To watch a ragtag group of survivors engage in a fluid conversation was satisfying, even if those new faces were a mere one-off. And Hershel as the tipsy elder in the room was, for a moment, pleasant.
There were obvious character developments from the aftermath and no matter what, they needed to be addressed.
If The Walking Dead can't break out of its current rut, it'll remain just good enough to keep watching every week, and just frustrating enough that I'll question that decision a few times per episode.
