Critic Reviews for The Wedding

Truthfully, this is their strongest episode to date.

The beauty of the episode is how you can see both Jamie and Claire getting more and more comfortable with each other and, yes, in my opinion, this is where they are truly falling in love.

I needed that episode after the intensity of last week.

The episode had a good mix of heavy romance and light humor, and it all melted my heart.

This episode was perfect, poignant, and perfect. That is, frankly, the extent of my recap.

It seems as though this hour of television was supposed to be something grandiose. Instead, it felt more mediocre in everything from the longing looks of passion to the overly stylistic sexual acts.

The wedding is beautiful, but it pales in comparison to the wedding night, which is incredibly sexy, and Starz doesn't hold much back from the consummation of this marriage.

"The Wedding" added a new romantic layer to the series and more than delivered on all the Claire and Jamie hints present in the promotional material.

Full disclosure: By the end of this episode, I am still solidly Team Frank.
