I enjoyed 4×07. I get why we didn’t get more of Bree at Lallybroch considering that Laura wasn’t available for filming and that Bree couldn’t spent a lot of time there because she needs to get to Jamie&Claire. I don’t think they should have gone in that direction with Frank&Leery but the material was nicely done. Overall I don’t agree with people saying it’s a bad episode. When it comes to criticism just because it wasn’t what you wanted it to be it doesn’t mean that it was bad. Just my opinion.

I’m honestly glad for the people who liked this episode, because for the life of me I can’t. I just can’t. My criticism has nothing to do with “what I wanted”, because I honestly had an open mind about it, sweets. I knew we wouldn’t have JC in it and was excited to see Sophie’s performance. I don’t get how can you say that we didn’t get more Bree at Lallybroch because she had to hurry to get to Jamie and Claire, when she spent half the episode wandering around Laoghaire’s house and having Sesame-Street-bedtime-story-time with her. She could have gone to Lallybroch and we could have had plenty with Ian and the rest of the family (cousins, where are thou?), even if Laura wasn’t available.

So, to me (and I’ll stress that this is my own opinion, which is what you always get on my blog), the material wasn’t nicely done at all. It had no purpose, no coherence, no relevance, no pace, no emotional pull. Roger’s side of things was better, but by then I was so disturbed I couldn’t even focus properly.

Laoghaire was there to show Bree another marriage out of obligation, just like Claire and Frank’s. I guess people just aren’t mature enough to get this.

Look, I’d much prefer to have Bree understanding the marriage of her parents through positive emotions (Ian telling her about it, her seeing the love people of Lallybroch had for her mother and for the mere thought of her existence, Jamie’s sacrifices for his family) than through negatives again. The negative of a photograph is part of the image and, yet, true beauty will always be in the positive film. And I don’t think maturity has ANYTHING to do with this. Be well X

I mean she did spent that time at Laoghaire’s bacause she twisted her ankle (I’m assuming, didn’t say what was wrong with it) and she was weak, not in any state to travel, and even then she spent only like a few days, definitely less then a week. Idk I think it wouldn’t have made much sense for her to spent a lot of time at Lallybroch without Jenny there condidering we haven’t spent a lot of time developing any other character there other then Ian and young Ian who is with Jamie and Claire so…

Okay love, but why did she even twist her ankle? It was only a plot device to push her into Laoghaire’s lap. She could have spent just a day in Lallybroch and still have plenty of meaningful conversations with Ian. That’s the beauty of writing and TV, you can make time stretch or shrink as you see fit. It was the writer’s choice and I think it was a poor one.
