Critic Reviews for Down the Rabbit Hole

Honestly, if Outlander had offered some scenes of this episode's caliber between Frank and Brianna back in season 3, I probably would've actually cared about Bree before "The False Bride."

Outlander's strengths as a drama are on full display in one of the simplest, yet most emotionally devastating moments of the entire season and show...

It was absolutely wonderful to have Tobias Menzies back on screen as Frank.

Seeing Frank always warms my heart, and his approval of his daughter's journey made me cry.

RIP Roger's glorious beard. To be honest, I'm taking this loss harder than most of the character deaths on this show.

Laoghaire is the messiest b---- that I love to hate. She is undoubtedly The Worst, but also kind of fun to watch?

In a show in which things often seem predestined, this was unique: It felt character-driven and realistically messy.

It's a tangled web.

"Down the Rabbit Hole," has absolutely no appearances by Jamie and Claire - zero appearances. Yet it may just be the best episode so far this season!

Dec 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Even though "Down The Rabbit Hole" feels off given Claire and Jamie's absence, it's a well written episode that further develops this world and allows other characters to step into the spotlight.
