The episode was positively received. IGN's Eric Goldman gave the episode a rating of 8.8 out of 10, and commented that "[o]ne thing's for sure - when a show has you this involved and theorizing this much on what could happen, it's working especially well."[1] The A.V. Club critic Scott Tobias gave the episode an A grade and stated "Man oh man what a thrilling episode. I love when a great series like this one makes that decisive shift into the third act, when all those weeks of set-up and slowly ratcheted tension really start to pay off. While I’ve had some niggling problems with the season overall, I think the table has been set more effective than it was in Season One, because we’re getting a chance to see what happens when Dexter is put in a corner and has to fight his way out."[2]
