Critic Reviews for Always Accountable

Trio member Tina's decision to place flowers on two dead bodies that, surprise, aren't so dead after all... might be one of the dumbest moves made by any character in The Walking Dead, and that's saying something.

"Always Accountable" felt like a success by any standard, because it moved the current story along, while effectively teasing the possibility of a new future arc. It was a pleasure being confused about this new dystopian society.

As it turns out, this episode's cold open is its high-point - although overall this was still a significant improvement over last week, if only because we spent time with folks we already know and like.

The Walking Dead is apparently finally ready to bring on a villain named Negan, one of the baddest bad guys in the comic books, whose arrival has been hotly anticipated by fans for awhile

"Always Accountable" is the epitome of The Walking Dead thumb-twiddling, taking its three most stranded characters and walking them in circles for 40 minutes.

I'm going to be honest with you. The sixth episode of The Walking Dead was mostly a bunch of nothing. For a 40-something minute episode, about 25 of them were necessary.

Hopefully "Always Accountable" marks the last of the more isolated episodes.

The results are in, and "Always Accountable" was... totally fine!

'Always Accountable' is a solid representation of the Scott M. Gimple era on The Walking Dead.

Nov 16, 2015 | Full Review…

For the character work given to Abraham and Sasha and some fun moments in the midst of some silliness with Daryl, "Always Accountable" is an acceptable episode.

First off, there was plenty in "Always Accountable" to wash out the bad taste from last week, and thank goodness for that.

Time for characters to reflect on shock and tragedy. It's the way this show works. It's what this story demands.
