Critic Consensus: Continuing the slow burn of The Walking Dead's fifth season, "Crossed" highlights the whole cast in preparation for what should be a humdinger of a mid-season finale.

Critic reviews for Crossed

I remain amazed at how well this season's slow-burn approach is paying off for The Walking Dead.

"Crossed" seemed somewhat saddled with the task of setting up the ultimate midseason finale confrontation, while keeping the other storylines in a holding pattern.

While we thoroughly enjoyed this hour, it's very much all setup and checking in before the next big face-off.

Tyler James Williams is a joy to watch.

The Walking Dead Season 5 finally hit a rotten egg in "Crossed."

So far, season five has been strongest in its quietest moments, excavating moments of humanity and pathos between its characters, and that held true in "Crossed."
