Critic Consensus: Watchmen seamlessly begins to tie up loose ends, but Regina King and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's exceptional performances make "A God Walks Into a Bar" a surprisingly beautiful and profoundly tragic love story.

Critic reviews for A God Walks into ABar
"A God Walks Into Abar" delivers a magnificent, heart-wrenching story that's far more magical than any superpower. It's what some may call a thermodynamic miracle.
The episode ends with quite an emotional stinger. Also, do not forget that post-credit scene which sets up next week's finale.
As much as Watchmen is deconstructing the superhero genre, it's still coming down to good guys versus bad guys, though with this particular tale, the bad guys winning would not be shocking.
Watchmen raises the stakes by giving us a fascinating glimpse into how Doctor Manhattan perceives reality itself.
Yep, this episode is Damon Lindelof and company at their most swing-for-the-fences ambitious.
