Critic reviews for Heads Up

The good news is that, limp Glenn revelation aside, this episode is much stronger than the last few.

I don't know, but I'm pretty sure I would have enjoyed this reveal much more without the whole speculation circus of the last three weeks.

I'm inclined to call "Heads Up" one of the best episodes of The Walking Dead's sixth season so far.

What a terrible, terrible idea this was, to drag out all half-season.

June 18, 2018 | Full Review…

In creating false suspense and undermining the life-or-death stakes it thrives on, The Walking Dead just lost at its own game.

The only way to come back from the whole thing now is to do something HUGE with the character next. Something that excuses and makes us forgive his ludicrous survival.
