Critic Reviews for Some Guy

An unsatisfying episode of the Walking Dead is usually quickly forgotten. Here, there was a sense that lasting damage had been inflicted.

Finally, an Ezekiel-centric episode. Unfortunately, it's all about him struggling to deal with most of his friends being killed.

It's a pretty grim hour, but the understandable motivation, decent action, and surprising loss make it Season 8's most successful hour yet.

This was the best of the season so far. I think one of the most successful parts of tonight's episode was that the focus remained on one storyline.

Watching the show basically break Ezekiel down into his component parts was compelling, even if it wasn't particularly surprising or deep.

The Walking Dead season 8 might still be able to pull something exciting out of the bag. An actual focus on characters makes for a stronger episode than the last two combined.

No one in The Walking Dead fandom is immune to the charms of Rick and Daryl working together to outskill and/or smart the bad guys; myself included.

Despite the fact that Ezekiel's faith was noticeably shaken, Jerry and Carol were intent on getting him back to the Kingdom. Unfortunately, the lowest moment of the episode was still to come.

Nov 13, 2017 | Full Review…

For what it's worth, The Walking Dead hasn't seemed particularly invested in spinning this season's big deaths as massive shocks, as it's gone in the past.

In what may have been Season 8's first truly great episode of The Walking Dead, "Some Guy" started with Ezekiel being shaken to his theatrical core.
