Critic Reviews for Killer Within

When Season Three of The Walking Dead is released on a DVD box set, they sure aren't going to print "The feel-good comedy of the year!" on the back.

"Killer Within" has all the game-changing moments of a season finale.

Four episodes into this bleak third season, showrunner Glen Mazzara's greatest accomplishment may have been bringing the series in line with its setting: It's an unapologetically grim and horrific show about a grim and horrible world.

Once again, the point is driven home (like a spike through a zombie's head) that there is no room for compassion in this world.

Wow. Just wow. Hearbreaking and tense as we found "Killer Within" to be, we expect this to be one of the most hotly-debated of The Walking Dead episodes.

This is a jarring and haunting entry of the series that for the time being at least, seems intent on being a serious drama and horror series alongside its more baser zombie roots. An applauded decision to be sure.

The cycle of life and death was played out before our eyes over a torturous 45 minutes, as we said goodbye to one of the show's most high profile characters but witnessed the birth of a child who provides hope for the future.

Manipulation is inherent to storytelling, but the best narratives don't thrive on it the way The Walking Dead often does for its effect.

One of my favorite things about last night's episode was that the zombies felt scary again.

When you tune in to The Walking Dead, you expect blood and guts. But this week's episode, "Killer Within", delivers an additional (and quite possibly scarier) bodily fluid: tears.
