Critic Reviews for Alone

"Alone" was yet another episode built on an essentially inessential plot, and it looks like I'm not the only one who's fidgeting while watching the emotional paint dry.

Sunday night's episode picked up the pace and ushered in some real momentum after spending the past few weeks lingering on character development.

Unfortunately, "Alone" doesn't really capitalize on the same idea of experimentation, and as a result ends up feeling all the more uneven.

The show has taken a welcome step back... [and has] begun to explore the possibility that maybe there is some purpose to The Walking Dead that goes beyond simply waiting to see which character is going to be the next one to die.

"Alone" came close to being a good episode but ended up much like Daryl, occupying the middle of the road.

Overall, this entry felt in line with the previous three. Some interesting character moments were interspersed with a few weaker attempts, and one nicely executed horror trope - a battle in the fog.

One of the biggest surprises of "Alone" is that half of it centers on Daryl and Beth, after last weeks episode kept them front and center for the entire hour... It still works like gangbusters here, though.

Despite its myriad little flaws, I still think it's some of the most engaging TV to be found right now.

The real drama of "Alone" lies in where these characters will choose to end up.

One positive development... is that The Walking Dead is now exploring characters who were previously relegated to non-essential background status.
