Critic reviews for The Garrison Commander
This well-executed, tense and riveting episode is the easily the best we've seen all season.
If you were waiting to get a real, full sense of Captain Jack Randall, you couldn't have been disappointed after tonight's episode. You may have nightmares, though!
The episode redeems itself at the end, with the news that Claire can solve all her problems by marrying a Scotsman. Hmm, gee, who ever could that be, ya think?
If the next two episodes of Outlander are as tense as "The Garrison Commander" was I won't have any finger nails left. That was a fantastic hour of television. And what a showcase for Tobias Menzies.
Indeed, it's a quality hour of television: artful directing, strong writing, and rousing performances by both Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies. Especially Menzies, who's so far only been able to showcase slivers of what he's capable of.
