Critic reviews for Knots Untie

It's off to war! With an unknown enemy! Everyone knowing it's probably going to end badly for at least some of them!

After weeks of soul-sapping melodrama, The Walking Dead has rediscovered its sense of adventure.

Granted, "Knots Untie" seems largely to have engineered itself around the setup for future conflicts, rather than present many compelling moments of its own...thankless work in that respect.

If anything, this episode, in addition to heading down its new road and doing a decent job of setting up what's next, it really did offer a hopeful future.

Man, the game is afoot. For the first time ever, I feel like The Walking Dead is actually starting to build a world.

"Knots Untie" did what it needed to-Rick is moving headfirst into Negan's orbit and they'll have it out. But it was a little clunky getting there as if the episode just wanted to get it over with.
