Critic Reviews for Lines We Cross

Daryl and Carol get the best scene of the episode, having a joking-but-not-really conversation about running away together to New Mexico. These two have the most lived-in relationship on the show, and it shines here.

"Lines We Cross" isn't quite as impressive as this series can be due to a lack of any interesting new threats, but it does work as a good reminder of where things are ten years into this series, and what is still out there, waiting for our heroes.

Hardcore fans of The Walking Dead happy with the status quo will likely be satisfied with this opening episode but it's hard to escape the feeling that it might be time for this show to be put down like one of the walkers it's named after.

As a stage-setter episode, Lines We Cross is a promising starting pistol built for bigger thrills to come.

The action in the episode delivers so well, and there's one particularly great scene where Carol cuts the throat of the zombie and sprays the blood onto another zombie that's on fire. I mean come on.

"Lines We Cross" opens with a montage of gratuitous zombie killing... The group is drilling some overcomplicated combat strategies that seem patently unnecessary for fighting the undead, but hey-they look cool, right?

When we previously saw Oceanside, it seemed deep in the woods. Glad they finally showed the ocean side of Oceanside.

It's reassuring to see that after all these years, some things - i.e., creative walker kills - really don't change.

The Walking Dead has always been a show that's more show than tell, and there are still some great visual sequences in the premiere that demonstrate the group's new fighting style as well as how the characters are spending their time.

There were a lot of fun little moments in the episode, though none is better than the raised eyebrows that Kelly gives Connie after Daryl waves at her.

This premiere episode was just to catch up with the folx of Alexandria and reestablish Oceanside as part of the community. And there was also the talk of values and purpose.

It's "Training Day," as the first chapter title card reads, and Aaron leads a squadron of armed forces on the beach... It's an exciting display with a drumming soundtrack, full of Roman-style military techniques that sets the tone for the new season.
