Half-dozing, we turned and moved together, always touching, in a sleepy, slow-motion ballet, learning again in silence the language of our bodies. Somewhere in the deep, quiet hours of the night, he turned to me without a word, and I to him, and we made love to each other in a slow, unspeaking tenderness that left us lying still at last, in possession of each other’s secrets. ~ Voyager
Overall I loved it. Sam and Cait were incredible like they always are. That chemistry still hasn’t disappeared. It’s as electric as ever so I’d really appreciate if they could stop ramming it down people’s throats that they’re JUST friends. Embrace it ffs because it’s rare.
Cait is so beautiful I’ll never get over it. Sam is too but for the love of God someone get him a new wig.
The scene where she showed him the pictures of Brianna felt a bit off to me. Maybe because I don’t care about her at all I just couldn’t feel the emotions I was supposed to but it was far better in the book.
The scene with Fergus was perfect. PERFECT. Cesar sounds just like Romann does so it was actually a believable transition.
Some moments between them were slightly cheesy. I think both Sam and Cait have issues with certain lines and it showed. I’d sacrifice a few iconic book quotes for them to be more comfortable.
First sex scene was funny, emotional, hot all at once. I loved when he kissed her nose. Then when she said “do it now and don’t be gentle” I was like YASSS GURL YASSS YOU’RE ABOUT TO GET IT!!! Loved all the pillow talk and then the second sex scene was just super hot and sensual. I love that they were facing each other the whole time and it was kind of a flashback to the wedding.
Don’t even talk to me about the breakfast scene getting cut because I’m about to riot over it. Once again, someone please get Ron out of the editing room. I’ll take over for him.
Speaking of editing, I thought the episode was a bit choppy and edited weird. I hate the way they use fading transitions. It doesn’t work for me and since my editor brain is especially critical, it makes it look cheap. Also TOO FUCKING DARK. Get Jamie some proper candles please I beg you. The whole time I was thinking “how the fuck am I going to make gifs for this??”. Too many random scenes that I didn’t really care about. I wanted more emotion, more crying, more “I can’t believe you’re really here” moments.
So while I really enjoyed it for the most part and was so happy to have our babies back together, it was missing something. I’m not sure what exactly but I do think it was slightly over hyped. Not comparable to the beauty of the wedding. I’m glad Jamie and Claire were the main focus because when they’re together it’s magic and there’s fireworks and nothing else matters in the world, but I’m selfish and wanted more.
I saw you so many times.
Ye came to me so often. When I dream sometimes. When I was in a fever.
I was so afraid and so lonely, I knew I must die.
Whenever I needed you, I would see you smiling, your hair curled around your face.
You never touched. I can touch you now.”

Omg! I’ve probably had like 2hrs sleep and I gotta say, save a couple of scenes here and there*(quick mention on this later), I loooved the ep! I’m not generally a crier, and I didn’t cry here either but I FELT this ep. I felt it like I haven’t felt an ep of OL in a very long time!
Wow, I just don’t even know where to begin lol so I’ll jus give quick brain farts as they come. There were sooo many incredible moments/iconic QUOTES/So. Much. TOUCHING.
The reunion itself was sweet, and tentative, and surprising (didn’t expect him to tell her about Willie - I skipped the “previously”). I cackled at the eyes like a hawk part, esp after the leaked photo of him in specs, I joked they’d not be needing that line. I loved how they split up the “do not be afraid” line so both had a piece of that.
Omg he was pretty damn perfect. He even sounded like Romann lol and he played not wanting to leave Milady so well, that last hug was so sweet! Cannot wait to see more o Domboy!!
I honestly don’t see myself having much issue with him on the show, he had a sweet undertone so I’m hoping they find the right balance for him. But also him fucking with Jamie (you just know he called Claire Honorable First Wife, in Chinese 😂 The smirk he gives Jamie when they’re leaving) had me laughing.
Shit guys… Any wee gripes I had all melted away, I didn’t give 2 shits about anything but them in that room! I loved loved LOVED how much book quotes there were, not only from the brothel but also from Moubrays!! And they were all peppered PERFECTLY with dem sexy times. So much physical/emotional intimacy, the teasing, y'all I *whoooped* at the mutual ass slapping! Ok, I whooped pretty much the WHOLE time they were in that room lol. Never in an ep of OL when I’ve said ‘I wish they say this or that’ has it come in floods like that. He even kissed her booboo ffs!
It felt really abrupt how they shot from the intro to her being his aunt, but I love that I finally have 2 of my faves together lol I can just feel they’ll have an amazing dynamic! Gimme more!!
The Hoors Brunch.
I’m all for any time the show gets to throw in some humor, and I really enjoyed getting that wee scene. It was light and fun and great seeing Claire from the eyes of outsiders and judging by what they saw, she had one fulfilling night lol
Additional thoughts (I’m sure I'mma have a lot of good and bad ones, but I’m just still processing everything! Jamie’s horrendous wig for one. Fix it Jesus.):
- I didn’t much like the first scene of the ep with Madame Jeanne. It gave an unnecessary impression and undertone. I could have completely done without it tbh.
- I dunno how a feel about Jamie telling Claire about Willie so soon… It just felt like not only did it take a bit away from him seeing Bree’s pics and him being completely absorbed and lost in that, but also how, not alters really, but deviates I suppose showJamie’s motivation/intent from book Jamie’s? Ugh I dunno how to explain it yet properly. Anyway, guess it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out now that Claire’s known all along.
- I both liked and didn’t like how they handled Jamie wanting and not wanting to tell Claire about Laoghaire. I liked that he seemed hit by the knowledge of it from time to time and Claire would notice something was off, BUT I also didn’t like that by having Claire tell him just before he was apparently about to spill the beans the next morning, that they didn’t need to rush it. It takes away some of the fault Jamie had from keeping it from her as he had done in the book. It opens the door to “well she didn’t want to know, she stopped him saying anything, why is she getting so pissed now”, so I’m even more interested in seeing just how this - in my opinion, irredeemable - situation is gonna play out!
- As I said after 3x04, the only reason to do that particular move in that ep had one purpose AMD one purpose only: The boob kiss/lick shot has officially been retired.
Guys, I’m still buzzing and have sooo much whirling around my head, but overall, I truly enjoyed this ep and can LEGIT watch hours and HOURS of them in bed like that. We probs will never get another ep like that but lawdy, I really really hope that the intimacy and touching and humor isn’t forgotten about throughout the season now. Let them be all touchy-feely when alone, please and thank you!
Jamie's seeming lack of interest in Bree and enthusiasm about Willie was a very odd editing/writing choice. Poor man gave up everything to keep Claire and their baby safe! And could someone at Tall Ships please sort out the bloody wig situation. Perhaps they could watch Versailles or Victoria to see how wigs can be done well. It's possible! When a wig distracts from the viewing experience it a problem!
Completely agree on all points! Wig situation is tragic at best, and it was so distracting to me during the big reunion sex.
And I can’t for the life of me understand why they wrote the Bree pictures scene like that, for many reasons. First of all the bikini thing I don’t remember from the book and it’s insertion just for a cheap joke line was crass. Would Claire ever bring a picture of her daughter in something so revealing that, given the historical context, it would be shocking and even potentially upsetting for Jamie to see? No. For me there was ZERO emotion coming from Jamie and I’m not even sure whether to blame Sam or the writers or the director or all three. And then the Willie thing… I would have been ok with Jamie bringing him up in the episode but not there. I was so looking forward to the pictures scene and hated the execution, it’s one of the few that we unilaterally agree Diana wrote very well, what a shame they felt the need to ruin it.
You were right to leave. You did it for Brianne. You're a wonderful mother, Claire. I know it. You gave me a child, Claire. She's alive and safe. Because of her, we will live forever, you and I.
Better to talk about the episode, since today it started badly.
Very interesting, very different from what I expected. I found fascinating that for the whole episode I had this sense of melancholy. It was really like watching two strangers. Jamie is not Jamie, the weight of his twenty years of suffering was there, well present. Now he is an adult, a forty-year-old. More serious, he lost his innocent look. Very good performance.
I found sex scenes a bit repetitive, I understand that Jamie and Claire wanted to anchor to something still alive in them, like the night of marriage. But it was a bit boring. I really enjoyed their chats to get to know each other and their kisses. But as I said earlier, I had this strange sensation all the time, as if there was something wrong with it. Jamie and Claire were back together but they were no longer the Jamie and Claire we knew. And I think this was the purpose of the screenwriters (at least I think).
(I’m not going chronologically) I really liked the hint to Faith and confession about Willie. All three children are important to Jamie, and I appreciated that they did not make Brianna “special”.
In conclusion I loved Ian more than Fergus. He is still under examination.
