Critic Consensus: Not only does Jean Smart's brilliant performance as the former vigilante turned FBI agent Laurie Blake raise the stakes, but her arrival in Tulsa connects "She Was Killed by Space Junk" to its comic book past in an exciting way.

Critic reviews for She Was Killed by Space Junk
The third episode of Watchmen, captured the best elements of the series' complex roots and aspirations, delivering a compelling character study and a vehement condemnation of self-indulgent idol worship, all while very much earning its last laugh.
One of those show's greatest strengths is how they've been able to seamlessly connect this universe to the cinematic/graphic novel one.
Lindelof's mysteries continue to spiral forward, but at least we know we're in safe hands.
I thought Watchmen was going to be the Regina King show, but this episode gives us a taste of yet another brilliant Jean Smart performance...
While 'She Was Killed By Space Junk' hasn't moved the plot much further forward, it has given a better idea of the wider shape of the thing.
