Critic reviews for Faith
Change is an ever-present part of this show, and as these flashes forward to the future keep reminding us, Claire has quite the journey ahead of her.
The episode devolves into absurdity-but the absurdity is, as always, beautifully presented and treated with the utmost sincerity.
The most outward expression of spirituality in a series resplendent with religious allusions and symbolism.
It's unclear, to either Jamie and Claire or the viewers, whether they'll manage to stop the rebellion, or whether they'll ever be the same. At least they'll be together, and all of us can have faith in that.
"Faith" is likely to be the episode most will remember when they think of Outlander's second season. A lot of ground is covered, and it's exhaustingly emotional.
