Critic reviews for The Fox's Lair
Look, I understand a television show needs a robust plot. The viewers must be kept engaged. But it's time for all of us to admit that Outlander suffers from an excess of it.
After such an intense and heartbreaking episode as Faith last week, the Frasers were due a bit of peace.
There are moments in time that cannot change and must come to pass, but the outcome could change... This future would be one that Claire can no longer predict; it'll no longer be the future she came from.
Another great episode of Outlander, and a strong return to Scotland.
This episode was slow-moving and -- dare I say? -- a little dull. But that's the nature of the episodic beast. Some episodes' purpose is simply to bridge the narrative gap from one plotline to another.
