The moment seemed to span several minutes, though it had hardly been half of one. Despite her soft enticing hums and smile at their situation, Angela’s heart was racing in anticipation. She wanted him to do it, yet she felt so damn nervous about it all. How could a simple kiss be so complicated? He brought them here for that reason right? So then why …
Angela’s lips moved as she sought for words to speak, only to close them again as she couldn’t do anything but stare.
After what I found to be a disappointing episode last week, I was more than a little excited about the fact that Anne Kenney was the writer behind this week’s “Useful Occupations and Deceptions” - and she (and the episode) did not disappoint. This episode managed to balance both plot and character development beautifully and the camerawork and movement of the episode emphasized the forward progress of Jamie and Claire’s plan regarding the rebellion while simultaneously underscoring the distances that have crept up in their marriage.
Break not for spoilers but for length (I loved this episode so I have a lot to say).
