    Richard and Sophie have zero chemistry together so no one would ever ship them LOL. Their scenes together are and will always be cringeworthy to watch. On his own, Rankin does fine enough so looking forward to his stuff plus Duncan, Sam, Caitriona and all the rest.

      Though I’ve never been much of a Roger/Bree fan, I believe that’s one of those “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” things. I’m sure some people absolutely adore them. This isn’t exactly a shippy episode on their part, though, so I think you’ll probably mostly enjoy it.

    This episode was very good, in my opinion. Acting was very good. I loved Murtagh but to me he died at Colladen. However, I did love the acting and I did tear up even though this was not part of the books. Reading Roger’s hanging was difficult, seeing it portrayed was aweful. Richard Rankin did it well! The books were hard to read – the rapes, the “hanging”, the deaths through war and disease, the betrayals. None, hopefully, will be a part of my life (other than watching TV or movies). I almost hate Gov. Tryon as much as Black Jack Randall. It was good to see Graham McTavich portray character’s son, William McKenzie (by Geillis and Dougal). So far this is my second favorite season.

      I’ve got a much longer spoiler-filled review coming later today, but I completely agree that I teared up a lot during this episode. Richard did AMAZING. For me the books were hard to read as well, and this is also my second favorite season.
