I can’t believe this is already the fifth episode in season three of Outlander. I guess time flies when you’re having fun. At the end of last week’s show, it seemed that Claire was willing to move on without Jamie. Will she have a change of heart? Be forewarned, there are spoilers ahead.
On the last episode of Outlander, poor Frank died, leaving Claire free to pursue Jamie. Meanwhile, Jamie was released from prison and into the service of a British family by John Grey. Have the time-traveling lovebirds reunited yet? Spoilers follow if you haven’t watched “Of Lost Things.”
On last week’s episode of Outlander, we saw Claire start medical school while Jamie devised a plan to be turned in to the British by his sister so that her family might benefit from the reward. I felt sorry for Frank, still trying to make a marriage with a woman who seems to reject him. Please note that the following contains spoilers if you haven’t seen the latest episode.
On the last episode of Outlander, we saw Claire and Jamie move on with their lives without each other. Claire and Frank are raising little Brianna as their own, while Jamie escaped execution and was returned to Lallybroch. How did they fare this week? (There are spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen the latest installment).
It seems like an eternity since we last saw a new episode of Outlander. Was the start of the third season worth the wait? The following contains spoilers, if you haven’t watched the episode yet.
The show opens with a gruesome landscape, the bodies of soldiers who didn’t survive the Battle of Culloden, strewn about the battlefield. Jamie Fraser lies seriously wounded atop a pile of fallen brothers. In his haze, he witnesses redcoats relieve bodies of any weapons that they find. Soldiers found still alive are killed, and Jamie lies still to avoid detection. He has flashbacks to the battle. We see Murtaugh (how I’ve missed his wit)! We also see Jamie wage a personal battle with Jack Randall, and it appears that Jamie cuts him down, as the body on top of Jamie seems to be Randall’s. Jamie thinks he sees Claire walking toward him as the snow falls, but it’s a fellow Scot who removes him from the pile of the dead to safety. We see a dragonfly in amber on the ground.
Claire and Frank seem to be faring better than Jamie. The year is 1948 and they are in Boston because Frank has taken a job at Harvard. They are checking out a home that they will buy to accommodate their growing family. (Claire is pregnant with Jamie’s child). It appears they are trying to resume their lives, but when a busybody tells Claire that she won’t find a man like Frank again, we can see in Claire’s face that she is thinking of Jamie.
Once again Doctor Who explores a mystery from the pages of history itself, what happened to Legio IX Hispana? As The Doctor and Bill and Nardole journey back to second century Scotland to find the Ninth Roman Legion, they discover a more sinister threat awaits them. Meet me after the time jump for my thoughts on “The Eaters of Light.”
The mysterious Monks are back, not just for revenge on The Doctor, but for dominion over the planet Earth – and they just might get it. Can The Doctor stop the Monks, and save mankind from itself? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on this do-not-miss episode of Doctor Who, the second act of the Monks trilogy, “The Pyramid at the End of the World.”
Iris West is dead. Or is she? In The Flash, a show that has out-timey-wimey-ed even Doctor Who this season with the time travel twists, anything could be possible. Now the season finale is here, and we’ll find out if Iris is really dead, as Team Flash squares off for possibly the last time with Savitar and Killer Frost, and who knows what might happen? Meet me after the speed and time traveling jump for my review of the more-than-appropriately titled “Finish Line.”
Doctor Who had a heck of a cliffhanger last time, with The Doctor going blind, but now with the Vatican in need of his help to stop a killer book, the Veritas, how will he save the day? And was that Missy in the preview for this episode? Meet me after the TARDIS jump for my thoughts on “Extremis.”
