I’m wavering on this episode. It was well acted and had a satisfying revenge fight scene. I’m glad that although they brought the horror of the rapes across, they thankfully didn’t show too much. And I loved Claire’s dissociation scenes from the 60’s.
But I’m disappointed in the stones outcome. Could it have been any duller? After the anticipation for a week to find out where Roger, Brianna and Jemmy ended up, it was where they started from! I joked about them spinning in the stones and ending up back in the past looking at Ian, but I didn’t really think it was what they would go with. I was hoping to see them in the future next season and have the past focus on Jamie and Claire. And they never elaborated on it beyond Bree’s quick “we ended up home”. Seemed a waste of a storyline.
It also didn’t feel like a finale to me. I would have preferred this episode (minus the travelling revelation) to have aired as the penultimate episode, and last week’s episode as this week’s finale.
