Critic Consensus: With its interconnected storylines, stellar performances, and complex themes, "See How They Fly" does the impossible and ends Damon Lindelof's adaptation of Watchmen spectacularly.

Critic reviews for See How They Fly
What Damon Lindelof, Nicole Kassell, Tom Spezialy, and so many more have created is a magnificent and substantial story not only because of the voices it elevates, but because of the way it encourages people to listen -- and to do more.
The last 2 minutes of this episode has all the potential of being debated in the same vein as The Sopranos finale.
In the final analysis Watchmen will be remembered as a staggering achievement across the board, ending on such a tantalising proposition that even uberfans and purists must surely be intrigued.
Other than opening with the Tulsa Race Massacre did Watchmen the TV show comment on politics in general or its own medium in particular with anything approaching Moore & Gibbons's innovation, vision, and purpose?
The end product is still satisfying, and its invocations for the second season still intrigue, but there's just so much to work through that some of the balls get dropped.
