Critic Consensus: "Je Suis Prest" takes a bleak look at the preparation for war -- a look that may be too far outside the show's usual storytelling scope for some devoted viewers.

Critic reviews for Je Suis Prest
The episode feel more personal and about [Claire], rather than the overarching theme of the uprising and the ill-prepared men, but it also drove home just how much is at stake in the coming weeks.
For once, the show seems to have slowed down; it feels less like an overstuffed adaptation and more like an episode of television.
It is fitting that Outlander's ninth episode of the season, Je Suis Prest, debuted the Saturday after Memorial Day.
If I wanted to watch [an episode] about dudes trying to out-masculine each other, I would watch pretty much any other show on TV.
This episode showcases the landscape of Scotland better than any previous episode, clearly in an attempt to display what the men are fighting for.
