Hit Fix said “The Truth Will Out was done very, very right.”

The Los Angeles Times considered Episode 7 on three levels: “what we learned about the four-leaf clover people; what we learned about the characters on the show; and what we learned about George and Uri.”

TV Fanatic noted that while Rubicon “never really left the API building” in Episode 7, it “didn’t need to in order to build tension.”

Daemon’s TV noted that the “good deal of information presented in the last couple episodes of Rubicon is “quickly moving the plot forward.”
