Subject: episode 408 - - Really good. Sophie has finally started inhabiting her role. Before this episode, I felt that she was playing a part. (go inside)

While I faulted her, I had to admit that the character as DG wrote her in the beginning was pretty unappealing. However, I felt she nailed this episode and had some difficult parts to play.
Love Murtagh the outlaw, and his delight at seeing Fergus. Although how he recognised him after 20 years is a bit blurry. The public surgery scene was a good choice of adaption, but seemed inauthentic. I cant really say why. One bit is that when you make an incision, you cut thru skin and then a layer of fat and the enteric (sp?) membrane. It all shows as the skin gapes open. A white dress with frilly sleeves and no blood stains at the end? really? I can't even cook and stay that clean!!!! Anyway, it wasnt convincing to me. Maybe it was the interaction with the Guv during the surgery that seemed off.

I thot Jamie did great with his subtle expressions, and quiet part.
Then, for the whole - this is one of two episodes in this season where I thought that the writers did the adaption in a way that knit together as an episode and honored the book.

Like the two posts below, I am posting this, so we can share on the website and not just FB
