Critic reviews for JSS

It's the zombocalypse equivalent of E.M. Forster's famous "to only connect", and given the thousands of zombies on the other side of that fence, Enid is going to need all the JSS juice she can find.

Wow. I don't know if that was the most violent episode of The Walking Dead yet, but it was certainly close. Coupled with the massive season premiere, it does seem like the show has decided to kick things into a higher gear.

Melissa McBride was fantastic this episode, as usual.

One of the more memorable episodes in recent Walking Dead history.

The raid of Alexandria basically works as a character piece for Carol and Morgan. Its purpose is to show how their differing approaches to a threat have to find a middle ground somewhere.

While the theme is something we've visited several times on this show, "JSS" was full of unexpected action.
