Critic Reviews for The Devil's Mark

Shit went down this episode. So much so that it left our heads spinning. In fact, if we have a complaint it's that the pacing was a bit off and certain aspects of the story probably weren't given enough time to breath a little.

Anyone familiar with the books had an inkling (or knew exactly) what to expect, but with this cast, the scenery and the direction it was perfectly flawless in its delivery making for a stunning hour of television.

Holy crap on a cracker, that was one amazing hour on television.

Tonight's episode hit an intense tone we haven't quite seen before but switched between that tone and quieter moments and then hit an emotional wall with full velocity. It was a ride.

Let's get the most crucial discussion out of the way first: If Claire had gone back through the stones at Craigh na Dun, and returned to Frank in 1945, there would be no more Outlander. It's as simple as that.

The two actors, it should be said, are marvelous here in a very challenging scene.

Geillis was simultaneously devious and delightful and the way she looked at Claire with a barely suppressed glee made little sense until "The Devil's Mark" snapped her into sharp focus with the single tug of a sleeve.

Suddenly, a wild PLOT TWIST appeared. It's super effective.

What a gut punch! (And I don't mean the Black Jack Randall kind.) "The Devil's Mark" has got to be the most emotional Outlander episode thus far.

The trial as portrayed on the show was utterly gripping.
