Critic reviews for Swear

"Swear" is one of those Walking Dead episodes where characters debate philosophy, which has not always lent itself to compelling viewing. But it works out pretty well here.

The introduction of an all-female village is logical and welcome at this point, and having Tara enter as an invading presence from the male world who happens to be a gay woman is a deft move.

"Swear" was fun -- a self-contained romp that took care to tie up most of its loose ends.

"Swear" feels like an unlikely success in such an otherwise-unfocused season.

If The Walking Dead wants me to feel like Eugene has done something wrong here, or has somehow betrayed the group in some way, it's failed.

While "Swear" is far from being a bad episode of "The Walking Dead," it should feel like a bigger deal than it actually is.
