Critic Reviews for Untimely Resurrection

Naturally Claire would do everything she could to protect her first husband - even if that means betraying Jamie - but her pleas for Black Jack's life absolutely put another black spot on her current marriage.

At her best - at the story's best - Claire will always say or do something that is both correct and maddeningly self-absorbed or reckless.

At least Outlander continues to address recovery with great care. Mary shares her feelings of shame, and Claire reassures the young woman that being raped was not her fault.

A visual and verbal feast of paradoxes.

In the arcade-claw game that is Jamie Fraser's life, another coveted - and, in this case, annoyingly smug and deserving of death - toy just slipped out of grasp.

Claire has saved Jamie's life and so, as much as she hates it, she must beg for Randall's life in return, at least until after Frank's ancestor is born.

"Untimely Resurrection" was one of the swiftest hours of Outlander Season 2. It was pretty much singularly focused on one event, and that streamlined the feel of the installment. The party was over before it even began.

This week's episode of Outlander "Untimely Resurrection" ended with another Claire and Jamie fight, while I could certainly do without those, it was such a powerful and beautiful scene, it might have been worth it!

All hail Caitriona Balfe for bringing it this episode.

Claire's still haunted; the ghost of her past life still lingers thick in the air between she and Jamie. Only time will tell if this ghost will leave them as well or if she will forever be haunted by the ghost of her other husband.
