Stakes was a ratings success, and was met with mostly positive reviews, with Sugar’s song in particular being met with critical applause. Conversely, a few commentators felt that the miniseries did not meet expectations. For his work on the Stakes finale, Herpich won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation at the 68th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards in 2016.

Let’s go in the garden
You’ll find something waiting
Right there where you left it
Lying upside down
When you finally find it
You’ll see how it’s faded
The underside is lighter
When you turn it around
Everything stays
Right where you left it
Everything stays
But it still changes
Ever so slightly
Daily and nightly
In little ways
When everything stays…
