Critic Consensus: "The Big Scary U" slows down the action to spend some quality time with -- and thereby humanize -- two of its much-maligned cast members.

Critic reviews for The Big Scary U
It's a Negan episode. Wait, don't go! It's actually much better than it sounds! In fact, "The Big Scary U" is not only the best episode of Season 8, it might be better than any episode from Season 7.
"The Big Scary U" was a reminder that the show can be legitimately excellent TV thanks to its first truly thoughtful and compelling look at Negan-and the reason why he calls his people the Saviors.
... one of the best episodes the show has produced in quite some time.
"The Big Scary U" is an episode that's longer than it needs to be, includes extraneous scenes that seem to only be there to pad out the runtime, but it somehow also contains some of the best scenes in season 8.
