Je Suis Prest

EPISODE:

TOMATOMETER

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.

Episode Info

When Claire and Jamie are reunited with the Lallybroch and MacKenzie men who are in training, his power struggle and her personal battle prove a burden. But an Englishman's visit to the camp provides updated news.

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.

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.

A well-crafted and surprising episode that could have been full of humorous army training montages, "Je Suis Prest" delivers on exactly what its title says.

Claire has always been a fighter, too passionate to be thwarted even in the face of insurmountable odds. Claire may have closed the door on that night during World War II but it isn't done with her.
