TV.com's Price Peterson wrote:
- Just when we'd gotten to know TV's weirdest and most intense mom, she had to leave us. Somebody wake up Elton John: We need a new version of "Candle in the Wind"!
- Most poignant scene of the night: Mrs. Argent attempting to tell Allison that she'd be committing suicide later and Allison totally blowing her off. There was a shot of Mrs. Argent looking all hurt and walking away, then turning around and seeming happy that her daughter was just having fun. A LOT was going on in those ten seconds emotionally. So good.
And of Eaddy's death scene:
- The acting was seriously so good here. If we HAD to lose Mrs. Argent, at least her death was dramatic and memorable.
Den of Geek's Ron Hogan wrote:
- Sometimes, you watch a show and someone comes out of nowhere with some really surprising, brilliant acting work.
- Throughout this season, Eaddy Mays as Victoria Argent has simply been the world's creepiest mom. Whether she's threatening to castrate Scott, running Scott down with a car while trying to kill him, or generally being the scariest mother since Joan Crawford, Mrs. Argent was nothing if not unrelatabale.
- Well, this week, Victoria was completely different. Faced with her own mortality, she was scared, sad, lonely, trying like hell to reach out to her daughter, and completely relatable.
- Mays and JR Bourne had some great chemistry and I really felt an emotional impact from both theirs, and Mays' scenes with Crystal Reed. I shouldn't feel for her, because she scares me, but I did. The actors playing the Argent family did some great work tonight. They're technically the antagonists, but I felt for them.
She appeared in The Blind Side opposite Sandra Bullock. She also is seen opposite Eugene Levy in the comedy, Madea's Witness Protection and was featured in the TV Movie remake of the 1970s cult classic COMA.
