Critic Reviews for The Lost and the Plunderers

It was a surprise that the decision to divide the episode into character chapters not only made sense but meaningfully raised the stakes. It's a lesson for the future - less student disco music, more dour pretension.

"The Lost and the Plunderers" focuses on one character at a time, with each character getting a title card to go with their segment. This allows the episode to futz a bit with chronology, but it's mostly just window dressing on a pretty basic episode.

The episode is divided into chapters based on characters, mainly so the episode can provide the opening with a cliffhanger by mucking about with time. It's forced, but it's basically fine.

If you've stuck with The Walking Dead this far, episode 10 is your reward. And it's been a long time coming.

Just for a moment, [Negan] lived like a real person beyond the screen. And it's probably the best scene we've ever gotten from him.

With the best Negan and Rick interaction yet and the trashing (ha-ha) of one of the dumbest factions in show history, The Lost and the Plunderers was a pretty great episode.

As seems to be par for the course these days, The Lost And The Plunderers was a case of the show lacking real definition and struggling within itself.

Carl's death tries to fill the empty space between the events of the hour, but it only gives the impression that season 8 so far doesn't have a clear plan to get to its conclusion - much like Rick's wobbly logic.

After last week's overwritten midseason premiere of The Walking Dead, the series returned this week with one of its stronger installments.

I think the A and B plots were solid this week with Rick, Michonne, Negan and Simon all making their next moves.
