Critic Reviews for Do Not Send Us Astray

The episode has a little bit of everything -- human vs. human action, human vs. zombie action, and even some significant character development for Maggie. It's as busy an episode as last week, but it's a much stronger effort.

The first 20 minutes of the episode is battle, and it's pretty fun.

There was so much stupid packed in it that it's kind of impressive. It's so insultingly dumb that my head literally aches as I write this.

Do Not Send Us Astray had some logistical issues, but the action sequences kept this episode mostly entertaining.

Suffice to say, it feels like we're about to see some intriguing storylines unfold at the Hilltop.

What's interesting is that the series has already used up many of the tricks deployed in the comic source material... The end of the All Out War cannot come soon enough, if only so the remaining characters can lick their wounds [and] reset.

However it plays out, there's a bit of misdirection at play right now.

The Walking Dead used to be clever, keeping you glued to the edge of your sofa, not knowing what would come next. But that's definitely not the case anymore. In fact, it's very much the opposite and it's ruining what's left of the storylines.

Aside from Henry's infuriating antics, this episode was a terrific follow-up to The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 12.

If only everything else this week were as solid as the attack and the zombie rising, but alas, the tone still felt off.
