Critic Reviews for Honor

The good news is that "Honor" is one of the better Walking Dead episodes this season, with solid thematic cohesion and actual emotional stakes.

Not only did they devote an extraordinarily long time to Carl's heartbreaking farewell scenes, they made sure he would leave a legacy. And Riggs delivered a rave-worthy performance.

The primary motivation for the primary character is gone, which demands a major shift.

It's a fine episode of the series. And that may not be good enough for a show that is eight seasons deep if it plans to keep powering on for years as AMC's flagship show.

Without the rhythm of previous seasons, this post-apocalyptic series needs ingenuity and new surprise factors.

... the loss of Carl appears to be the start of something meaningful-both for the people he loves, and the series itself.

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The bad news is that Scott M. Gimple and his co-conspirators are still doing silly things with the show: more choppy editing, more gratuitous violence, more plot points that don't make sense...

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

... it did prove that The Walking Dead still knows how to pull heartstrings and give its characters proper send-offs, if given the right circumstances.

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

... the episode is a tear-jerking tribute to [Chandler] Rigg's character and an exploration of why Rick and his people are fighting so hard for peace and a future.

Sunday's midseason premiere was, essentially, a 56-minute exercise in thumb-twiddling and time-wasting.
