Critic reviews for La Dame Blanche

Always a feminist no matter what time period she's in, Claire continued to experience the repercussions of her unintentional feud against the Comte Saint German, who is clearly still peeved about his boat.

Director Douglas Mackinnon and writer Toni Graphia delve into the feminine mystique as both a source of power and a cause for alarm to those who are threatened by a woman utilizing her trove of resources.

"La Dame Blanche" is another strong showing for Outlander. Events in Paris are spiraling out of control for Claire and Jamie, but showrunner Ron Moore is showing a deft hand at balancing the various plot twists.

Get on it, Outlander. You have too much going for you (not the least of which: Claire's ever-increasingly fabulous wardrobe) to drop the ball on underdeveloped characterization.

May 23, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Jamie and Claire have set themselves as the sole guardians of a narrow space and, as the episode comes to a conclusion, the power of their prescience seems insufficient against the pull of destiny.

Claire's faced a number of near-death moments in her brief, 18th-century life (witch trial, anyone?), but never has her life been in such peril in the span of one episode as "La Dame Blanche."
