Critic reviews for Internment

Kudos to Scott Wilson for selling such an emotionally fishy moment with all his hoary soul; it took every ounce of his gravitas and then some.

While much of the episode was very good and filled with enough tension... there were some scenes that really had to make us wonder how these people managed to survive for so long.

I'm glad we got some time with Hershel.. But it was when everything went crazy again and the walkers seemed destined to take over the prison that the hour picked up for a pretty nonstop ride until the end.

Maybe shifting the setting back and forth from the prison to the veterinary college, and focusing on a more diverse group of characters in a more evenhanded fashion has helped some to overlook some of the tonal issues that have sprung up.

It's a simple episode, leaning more heavily than the show ever has before on Scott Wilson's warm, stoic performance as Hershel, and effectively continued the season 4 mix of despair and complicated action.

It's unfortunate that the episode's climax serves as much as a way to winnow down the cast as it does a thrilling set piece, but thankfully, it's a good set piece.
