Critic reviews for Not in Scotland Anymore
If stopping Prince Charles' upcoming Jacobite revolution is a key theme of the second season, in a way Jamie becomes an even more important character than Claire.
That the show is allowing Jamie his trauma is exactly why Outlander is such great television: Even when we're not enjoying hot actors having hot sex, the show's sexual politics are leagues beyond most others'.
From the beginning, director Metin Hüseyin amps up the Gothic aspects of Diana Gabaldon's story with its focus on Jamie's continuing physical and spiritual torment and Claire's struggle with the confines of domesticity.
This Parisian jaunt - while both gripping and beautiful to look at - is shaping up to be a rather depressing excursion for our beloved Frasers.
It's hard to say how the eventual reveal that Jamie's rapist (and Claire's almost-rapist) is still alive will affect Jamie's recovery. It's already shaken Claire to the core.
