Outlander 6×03 “Temperance” is one of the most emotional, family focused episodes in quite a while. The show sometimes goes for the big moments, the loud emotions, but in this episode it’s the quiet ones, the moments between words, that carry the hour. It’s also the performances, with the entire cast getting to shine, but particularly the criminally underused César Domboy and Lauren Lyle.
It’s not just about Fergus and Marsali, though, with everyone from a solid Roger, to a steadfast Jamie, a determined Claire and a supportive Brianna, making their mark on an hour that starts one a high and ends on another. After this episode, we’re even more invested in this family, and even more worried about what’s to come — which is exactly what we should feel.
Here are some teases for Outlander 6×03 “Temperance”:
- If I’ve ever said anything bad about Roger Mackenzie, I take it all back. Or, let me rephrase that …thank God the show seems to have remembered who Roger was always supposed to be. It was about time.
- Kids can be cruel is one of those truths of life that applies to any and all time periods.
- Pain isn’t exactly rational, and we cannot expect it to be. But what gets out to confront our pain? Well, that’s actually pretty darn rational most of the time.
- This episode has enough for an Emmy reel for César Domboy.
- Some things you just enjoy, even when you’re not supposed to. And I think we’ll all agree Jamie deserved this one.
- Roger and Jamie have come such a long way, and it’s a joy to see.
- Grandpa Jamie is my weakness. Mom! Claire is pretty badass, too.
- I love Marsali with every bit of my soul. I’m not the only one.
- Soft moments between our OTP are sometimes even better than passionate ones.
- Every once in a while, we all need to scream at the person we love.
- This episode had me outright sobbing at one point, and for a change, they were good tears.
- Forehead kisses = my kryptonite. Any kind.
