Critic Reviews for Not Tomorrow Yet

This is a more interesting episode than most, as many of the characters have to seriously consider the effect of the violence they inflict, and the justification for that violence.

Is there any character on The Walking Dead more interesting than Carol Peletier?

No Tomorrow Yet was a tense and effective episode, especially during its latter half when implausible relationship-based subplots gave way to blood-soaked horror and raw, machine gun-pounding action.

I want [Morgan's ] philosophy to be right. That is why I [adore] everything about Carol in this week's episode.

It worked well enough...but it still feels as if The Walking Dead isn't sure how to balance that development individually with the season's overarching threat.

With the enormous amount of engaging violence this week came a very interesting, and unsettling, theme of wasteland thuggery and the scarily slim line that separates Rick from the villains.

Mar 7, 2016 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The show is doing a great job of building tension toward what is, by this point, the formality of character death on a series that relishes its chance to make such things happen.

The cliffhanger ending keeps the suspense alive.

There are very few bad eggs on the series now, and that's something to be thankful for.

Yes, killing is bad! But sometimes it's good! That's the long and short of it, and no matter how many times The Walking Dead puts its characters in these situations, that will be the answer. And again, that was the answer this time.
