Critic Reviews for Hounded

When The Walking Dead slows down, that's when the wheels tend to come off the Hyundai.

Another great episode in a string of them, and it's setting up the major theme of the books: the danger in this world is not found in shuffling undead, it's in the living and their competing desires and needs.

With only two episodes left in this half of the season, all the ducks are in a row for an extremely tense showdown, and we've never been bigger fans more excited to see how it plays out.

I'm not sure what "Hounded" was about, per se, but the most important thing it accomplished was ending Rick's bad day.

While "Hounded" wasn't great, there's obviously plenty of high stakes scenarios brewing for the characters, now that The Governor has a couple of people who know about the prison.

It's definitely time to start mixing and matching the two storylines, especially since what's been happening at the prison has, so far, been more compelling than the action over in Woodbury.

There was a lot of ground to cover in "Hounded." Thankfully, much like the improvements to some of the character's dialogue (or lack thereof), it's clear the writers have a firmer grasp on how to keep the pace of The Walking Dead as brisk as possible.

After keeping a steadily escalating pace all season, Walking Dead decided to take a moment to let its protagonist go crazy. The result is an episode that felt mostly like it was just killing time.

"Hounded" balances the promise of the moment with the dread of what's to come.

This was a manic Walking Dead episode, with various chess pieces moving into position for the final two episodes of this half-season.

"Hounded," was the beginning of the end of a divided narrative and a big step towards what promises to be a nasty showdown.

Jul 29, 2015 | Full Review…

"Hounded" picks up the pace from last week, cramming three stories into the hour and cutting between them in a way that never lets the tension entirely drop.
