Good: I think the change of the crazy man who "became" the bear. It makes more sense than Jamie wrestling a bear plus it leads us into the Native American culture. I especially liked when Jamie was fighting the "bear" and we see the Natives performing their ritual. I just assumed it was a ritual to rid themselves of the evil of the "bear man". Myers told us that is the way the other Natives view Tskili Yona.

Bad: Something about the way Jamie and the Natives come to their understanding bothers me. I feel like Jamie would understand them more than it seems from this episode. And the surveying of their lands just struck me as odd when they know there are Natives in the area. What is the point of the stakes? They aren't going to build a fence. I felt like all of that was just to give the Natives something to bring back to Jamie.

Also, I feel like Gayle was kind of a let down. The actress was announced and we get two brief instances of her. I feel like the hype was more than the part. I wish we'd seen more Gayle.

Great: Fiona being like... Bree's mom traveled back in time to be with Jamie Fraser. And Roger's face. LOL That was so amazing. As was Roger calling to tell Bree about her parents and learning Bree "went to visit her mother". So awesome.

Overall I liked the episode but I'm really looking forward to the future episodes.

I liked this episode though I feel we've been robbed of some Bree/Roger scenes before this point. However I think this is a better reason for how things move forward than in the book.

At first I was a bit weirded out by the guy in a bear costume, but I know how hard and expensive filming with animals can be, so when I thought about it I think it was actually a very good change.

I am very excited to see the next episode now though.
