Critic reviews for Rent
The friction between the Redcoats and the clansmen becomes more real in this episode.
Outlander continues to impress in its fifth outing, with another engaging character building story.
It was very much a solid transitioning point from everything that took place at Castle Leoch to what looks to be a huge Black Jack Randall episode next week.
Oh man, that whole scene with Jamie and Claire was extraordinary ... full of so much sexual tension.
"Rent" delved into history, developed all the primary characters, and featured entertaining antics.
Sparks they were a-flyin'. Without being too spoilery (don't I treat you good?) Claire is forced to make a big decision in the final seconds of the episode and for the first time as a viewer I had no idea what she would choose.
