Whew! That was extraordinary. They really wove this episode together well, action packed in every aspect, creepy action, murdery action, sexy action, pulling your heart strings action, almost dying action….so much action.
Holy blood bath. Typically I watch an episode 2 to 3 times when I am reviewing it for a blog post but this scene I only needed to watch once. Lotte Verbeek's genius ability to be creepy AF really shines in this scene and it replays VERY CLEARLY in my head ***lots of heebie geebies given***
And then it happens...the most satisfying romantic novelesque moment of running across the beach toward one another culminating in an even more romantic (is that even legal?...uh....yes...how dare you even ask!) embrace.
I had the most wonderful thanksgiving week in Seattle with my family, and I hope everyone else had an amazing holiday as well. This post comes a little later than normal because I was enjoying some sweet family time. The opening scene begins from Jamie's point of view. Claire is aboard the Porpoise, a British … Continue reading Outlander Episode 310: Heaven and Earth
Well I feel extremely satisfied after watching Episode 308, First Wife. However, I realized how much I missed seeing plaid while watching this episode, it just seems so blatantly absent...damn that no kilt law. We open at Lallybroch and it always feels like home when we’re there. However there was no warm welcome when Jamie, … Continue reading Outlander Episode 308: First Wife
It’s crazy how short episode 307 felt after watching the super sized episode 306 a bunch of times. This episode was action packed and before we know it the end credits start to roll and our mouths are hanging open. In the previous episode we got to relish and linger in the moment with Jamie … Continue reading Outlander Episode 307: Cremé de Menthe
Episode 306 A. Malcolm was incredible. There have been a lot of criticisms of the way the episode was written. There were things that were moved around, changed and left out all together. All of that is absolutely to be expected. Naysayers do yourself a favor and relax and enjoy the cinematic rendering of this … Continue reading Outlander Episode 306: A. Malcolm Printer (Aka the freaking Printshop reunion)
5. Brianna “What an awful name for a wee Lassie.” Jamie’s first reaction to Brianna’s name was not what Claire was expecting. After a moment Jamie gets used to her name, he pronounces it Bree-ina. It is going to be so sweet to see Jamie looking through the photos of Brianna. 4. Come here to … Continue reading 5 things we are dying to hear Jamie say in Episode 306
Outlander Season 3 Episode 5 In last week's recap of Episode 304, I mentioned that it was a very “Jamie heavy” episode and I guessed that episode 305 would be very “Claire heavy.” I was right of course but it wasn’t hard to be right because in the books we are kept in the dark … Continue reading Outlander Episode 305: Freedom and Whisky
Donna Del Oro throws us into the opening scene, written as the prologue. We find ourselves In 1940, on a Ferry setting sail across the Irish Sea. Nazi Spy, Clare Eberhard watches as her husband (also a Nazi spy) bludgeons a young woman to death. This poor woman, Mary McCoy, was murdered because Clare was … Continue reading Book Review: Bodyguard of Lies
