Critic reviews for Passed Pawn

The action isn't as satisfying as it once was, tracing the plot continues to be more work than it's worth, and experiencing empathy for a character shouldn't require mental gymnastics.

As surely as we have left the park we have left what made this show great behind. It's a shame. Perhaps next Sunday's finale will soften my take or change my mind, but I'm really not holding out hope.

One of the most unexpected and violent scenes of the season. [Full Review in Spanish]

Even though the action sequences of the episode are thrilling, much of what happens during this episode is, in the end, just a setup to what will hopefully be an epic season finale.

Their story (Caleb-Francis) is told throughout the episode with about the same precision as a splatter painting.

This idea was my favorite thing in this episode - that Dolores is so inherently a rebel that she ultimately rebels against herself.
