Hands down favorite line... “we will live forever you and I”... and now my Recap...
Best line of the show was that one.
I liked it alot. I liked their humor and the awkwardness. I did miss the 20 years of longing. I missed the depth that should have been the scene with the pictures. Like I really really wanted to see sobbing from Sam. Really bad. We didn’t get it. I will get over it but I really really was hoping for that.
The sex was great. Felt a touch gratuitious at times I gotta say, but it was good. I REALLY liked when they spent time getting to know each other. I wish we could have spent more time hearing about how they reconnected emotionally.
Fergus!! LOVED that scene. Didn’t disappoint.
The undressing… good… not great… maybe it’s cause I know too much about the production at this point. It was hard for me not to see the choreography in it. I miss the emotion and the “suspension of disbelief” of season 1. They have driven home the “actors acting” bit just a little too hard so I struggled to see past the mechanics of it on the first watch. I am hoping it grows on me on subsequent watchings.
Mr. Willoughby… handled nicely. I look forward to his role in the future. I do enjoy his parts in the books as flawed as they are.
Ian is great! I am looking forward to Johns portrayal. Ian is 3rd favorite next to JC in my love of book characters.
The end… Ok… come on STARZ. Can we give them ONE episode without plot plot plot?? Come on. That was LAME as hell. The brothel stuff was fantastic. Love that Claire who isn’t afraid to get to know new folks and talk with them but the ransacking of the room and threatening of Claire again?? Come on. Let it go for an episode for cripes sake. Seriously not cool cause now we are off to the races with the Leghair crap and the smuggling and all the shitty plot points.
I will say it again. THIS STORY IS IN THE SMALL MOMENTS. The stuff like “20 years of longing streaming down their faces” and “thoroughly and completely falling to pieces” and we missed that tonight… well at least I did.
I am THRILLED to see them back together and happy they took time for them to reconnect physically… but this story is NOT just about the sex. The sex is important… ABSOLUTELY… but it’s the intimacy that is important. They did a great job showing it for the most part but I hope it continues throughout the rest of the series.
Let’s do this thing!!
