Critic Reviews for Thank You

"Thank You" kept up the pace and delivered the show's most shocking twist in a while.

If the lesson here is simply "no one is safe," then mission accomplished. It just feels like a waste.

This season has already been notably more active and violent than any of the last five.

My heart is pounding. Is this the latest allegorical shift of TWD? Is this the "no one is indispensable" lesson we've all been learning in the corporate realm for the past couple of decades made flesh and blood? Mostly blood. I'm sorry, it's just too real

"Thank You" maintains a level of intensity throughout, which helps to gloss over the rougher bits.

With such immediate sources of devastating tension, and a newfound reverence for death and conflict, The Walking Dead's enjoying a creative resurgence.

Let's leave congratulating dudes for doing the least in 2017. You want the label ally? Earn it. You want to be thought of as a good guy? Earn it. You want accolades for all the pro-woman work you been putting in? Earn them.

I really do admire The Walking Dead's willingness to shake things up in its sixth season.

The overall effect was deeply unnerving.

It's still like a jackhammer to the gut (and heart) whenever a major character -- a member of the original Atlanta survivors group, bites it -- especially when you don't see it coming.

This overall was an insane hour of The Walking Dead Season 6 that never let up.

For now... thumbs up, and tears
