REVIEW | Outlander - Episode 1.07 - "The Wedding"
Updated: Apr 25
Survived a war. Tumbled through history by accident and landed smack bang in the middle of another one. Forced to travel around the countryside with a bunch of Scottish rebels: at least half of whom suspect you of being a British spy, and all of whom probably smell like a hungover bush pig with body odour issues. Assaulted and hunted by a sadistic soldier who also happens to be the historical doppelgänger of your actually-quite-nice husband who may or may not exist somewhere out there. Insulted, imprisoned, kicked, punched, AND having to do all of it while wearing a corset that appears as if it will require you to rearrange your internal organs in order for it to be donned successfully.
Welcome, folks, to the newfound highland life of Claire Beauchamp Randall.
Indeed, despite a handful of unexpected moments of beauty, her vast experience to date of occupied Scotland has been one spent of the wrong end of suspicion, and – at least internally – of loss, as she finds herself unable even to mourn a husband that she must believe still exist, somehow, out there in the vast chasm of history. But like the life she left behind, in the newest episode ofOutlander, simply entitled “The Wedding,” Claire finds herself now having to put Frank aside for what appears to all others a marriage of life saving convenience. All others, of course, except the earnest, kind and battle-scarred young man who will meet her at the altar.
