Outlander, every Sunday I keep asking myself if one day you will cease to amaze me, and so far I’m happy to say absolutely not. This hour was a return to form from last week’s amazing slow unfolding of Jamie and Claire’s perfectly acted and written reunion.
Well…that was one hell of a reunion, and entirely worth the wait, Outlander fans. There wasn’t a second where I didn’t feel like I was constantly holding my breath, watching Jamie and Claire interact for the first time in twenty years in the infamous Print Shop, in “A. Malcolm”. But I am getting ahead of myself, I fear.
Let’s start at the beginning, shall we?
Pardon my language, Outlander fans, but holy hell, what an emotionally twisting rollercoaster!
“All Debts Paid” exceeded any expectations I had, and shot them through the roof. If I ever thought the third season would lack a gut punch per episode, I regret even doubting this show for a second. Catching different parts of a life, through different centuries, is not an easy story to tell. Outlander, however, succeeds at finding the little moments, even as years pass, without making you feel like you’re missing anything important.
So why don’t we dive into it together?
Outlander fans, we are back this Sunday with another all new episode, aptly titled “Surrender”. The word surrender tends to imply that we were faced with a conflict, that we couldn’t “beat” and were forced to give up fighting. In other cases, and especially with Jamie and Claire in this episode, it was lent an altogether different meaning. Now be warned, I do write this with the knowledge of having read Voyager, so if you aren’t a book reader, beware of spoilers.
