Critic reviews for Hostiles and Calamities

Instead of beating us over the head with the fact that Rick has to harden his heart to lead, etc. etc., it shows us a man caught in the shifting winds of a personality that is changing as the world changes.

Is it better to die on your feet than live on your knees?

The episode, entitled "Hostiles and Calamities," directed by Kari Skogland, reverts back to Negan and life in his Sanctuary. In fact, it sheds light on the interior lifestyle of the Saviors - something fans haven't been privy to as of yet.

It's a grim episode, but it's grimness with purpose.

With the focus on Eugene's moral downfall, the dispatch gave us a greater insight (to) Negan and the seductive lure of his regime than any number of gratuitous beatings.

Oddly enough, The Walking Dead does tend to stumble in more direct approaches to melodrama.
