Outlander is back and all feels right in the world. Well, it would, if I didn’t want to punch that thieving bastard Stephen Bonnet in the face, but let’s not jump ahead here.
Outlander fans, we have arrived at the third season finale, and I only have one question to ask: How in the world did we get here so quickly? It feels like yesterday I was anticipating the end of a very long Droughtlander, but truthfully, I wouldn’t trade a second of this fantastic season and finale.
This finale was a fitting end, which brought some of my favorite twists and character moments to date. So without further ado, here are my top five moments of “Eye of the Storm.”
Well, talk about dramatic events, mesmerizing character moments, and cliffhangers Outlander fans, Bakra had it all! Forgive me if I babble, but frankly, Outlander inspires the fangirl in me to yell at the screen each week, and I have absolutely no shame. But why don’t we get to the top five moments from this fantastic hour of Outlander?
Whew, Outlander fans. I know that’s not the most eloquent of words, but it still feels accurate to describe the feeling I had post-watch of “First Wife”. It was the episode I’d been dreading as a book fan, because I knew that no matter how it was done here on the show (fantastically, as per usual) it was still going to hurt when Claire learned this particular truth about Jamie.
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?
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.
