Critic reviews for The Reckoning
While we can't argue with the appropriateness of the title of this episode, we will forevermore think of it as "The Spankening."
Walking in Jamie's tartan plaid and experiencing the deep connection he has formed with Claire was inspiring.
Caitriona Balfe, I salute you. That was a large amount of physicality you had to handle in just one episode, and you did it with major aplomb.
Seeing the story from Jamie's point of view brings a fresh perspective.
What's left at the core is something far more satisfying: The evolution of Claire and Jamie Fraser's relationship into something resembling a modern marriage.
