Critic Reviews for Prey

Is it just me or does [the Governor] appear to be getting crazier and crazier as the season progresses?

Then again, why you creators think a story set in the zombie apocalypse needs stretching out at all is probably why we get so frustrated with you.

"Prey" delivered one of the most unique, and exciting episodes of the season.

The effectiveness of "Prey" - arguably one of the most tense hours of The Walking Dead to date - probably depends on how invested you are in Andrea's fate.

Such a strong run couldn't last forever, and the zombie drama takes a misstep with latest offering 'Prey'.

We... got more of a focus on Tyreese, Sasha and Milton this week, which was appreciated.

(A) Andrea is not quite interesting or sympathetic enough to focus on, (b) Woodbury seems ridiculously close to the prison again, and (c) promising characters like Tyreese and Milton are poorly used.

Of all the horrors we've seen, none chilled the blood as much as the prospect of what we saw tonight: an Andrea episode. But, beating the odds, it wasn't too bad.

Huzzah for focus! "Prey" isn't an amazing hour of television, but it's fundamentally sound in a way this show often struggles with; it's also something that's easier to draw conclusions from.

As much as this episode was supposed to be the dramatic turn of events, especially where Andrea was concerned, it felt tiresome, silly and, save for a few moments, lacking a gripping and absorbing atmosphere.

The Walking Dead needed a strong episode to pull it out of the muck. Tonight's "Prey" was not that episode, nor did not have those good moments to mask the bad.

The episode definitely succeeds as a whole thanks to a narrower focus... and a good thriller structure(*) that brings back some of the urgency from the first half of the season.
