Critic Reviews for Welcome to the Tombs

Even devotees have to acknowledge was a frustrating final hour. (Not even the overdue death of Andrea gave me any satisfaction. Her foot-fetish fumbling with the pliers was just one more mistake in an annoying lifetime full of them.)

Unfortunately, the show dropped the ball like Andrea fumbling with a pair of pliers.

I can't say the season finale and the season as a whole weren't vastly entertaining.

We're almost completely disengaged from the characters and actions; it's just consequence-less activities playing out on a screen in front of us, failing to suck us in.

Well, that was...anticlimactic. We appreciate the value of a good script zagging when we expect it to zig, but we can't help feeling a bit cheated that The Walking Dead season 3 ends with so little punch.

I'd hoped the finale would make me miss the series in its absence more than I suspect I will.

'Welcome to the Tombs' leaves you hungry for that fourth season - perhaps a little too much. It's tense and emotional, but - with so much left unresolved - it's maybe not the barnstorming finale that fans had been hoping for.

The Walking Dead finale had a lot to deal with and there were certainly some exciting and crowd pleasing moments. But it also suffered from some dramatic missteps and off moments that ultimately made it good but not great.

[The strong] moments were mostly undone by muddied characterizations and a drawn-out conflict that, as we see here, didn't really deliver.

None of the massive amount of tension that's built up over the course of the season has been released or resolved.

"Welcome To The Tombs" was smarter than a simple fight to the death, and while that meant sacrificing finality (the Governor surviving is something of a mixed blessing), it also meant telling stories that veered dangerously close to optimism.

As a longtime fan of the show - a skeptical fan, but a fan nevertheless - I couldn't help walking away from the season finale feeling a bit disappointed.
