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.
