Teaaarss!!!! Teaaarss!!!! I was so moved! Such a well written episode! One of the best of this season thus far.
Although the scenery moved backward and forward, the story was unbelievably coherent. Caitriona Balfe’s performance in this episode, from first shot to last was exceptional. Her face was a complete mirror for Claire’s inner world, and the drama was tautly written across every tremulous emotion Balfe put on display.
This character’s ability to withstand turmoil is incredible, and her resilience and loyalty to be admired. Say what, she is clearly the soul of this show, and Balfe is perfectly cast.
At the end my last thought was, if Randall’s been poked in the willie, then how is he supposed to father the lineage that leads to Frank? But the answer is obvious. Mary & Alex.
Ok! Back to Scotland! Hurrah!
