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.

We'd probably grade it a solid B based on those two scenes alone. Unfortunately, the silliness in the opening few scenes was only a prelude for the silliness to come.

To see yet another character subjected to sexual violence leads me to wonder if the show's writers are capable of telling a story without violence at its center.

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.

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."

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 24, 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.

Even the scenes centered on Jamie and Claire's political schemes dig into deeper meaning. It's not just about the plan but about what it means for the characters and their relationships.

There is no denying that tonight's episode packed a lot of plot and emotional developments into a single hour.
