Critic Reviews for If Not For Hope

Everything about Lord John and his reaction to Brianna's behavior at the dinner and during her impromptu blackmail perfectly fit the man in love with her father.

Acting MVPs of the week have to go to Sophie Skelton and David Berry, who really brought it in all their scenes together.

It was like a scene from Real Housewives.

Unsurprisingly, Outlander is still not portraying its non-white characters with much depth.

Lord John and Brianna were very sweet together; it was touching how he told her that Roger will love her baby even if it's not biologically his, the same way that John loves his son.

Maria Doyle Kennedy is in fine form as the original cotillion wine mom. And the jostling suitors are delightfully wretched...

Give this man a hot boyfriend!

I want to take a moment to shout-out David Berry as Lord John Grey. The entire Outlander cast is wonderful, but he is truly something special.

This season of Outlander has had an ongoing Brianna problem, and it keeps throwing fuel on that fire.

None the less, when "If Not For Hope" finds its groove everything seems to come together.
