Subject: No need to eat crow - it was a surprise right off the bat. Kind of like that shock of starting Dragonfly in Amber and wondering if I missed a book :-) I agree with you about the acting, in all the 'smaller scenes' like Dougal losing patience with the priest, Ned picking out the dress - everyone is pitch perfect. Even the cat on the table lent a light touch at the right moment.
In reply to: Lady Linda 's message, "I am sitting here eating a wee bit of crow. Well, I have put a bit of gravy and red pepper flakes on it for flavor! I WAS NOT a happy camper Saturday night when I saw it the first time. I let my Scottish temper cool for a couple of days and just finished watching it again with CC enabled. (Hearing a bit on the older side, ye ken?) I take back all that I said in my first rant (way below) immediately after I saw it Sat. I think I was just so taken aback that it started in the bridal chamber that I didn't recover from that shock during the first viewing. Watching it tonight, I think it did more justice than any other episode to date (And, I have thought all episodes prior were simply fabulous!). Able to understand every word (Yes, Jamie, a bit difficult to understand you sometimes), and thought the acting was simply brilliant. Everything in this episode was just perfect ." on 18:44:12 09/22/14 Mon

[> Ditto, Lady Linda! No need to eat crow, but if you insist, save some for me :) The producers had us really fooled with this episode. What promised to be a straightforward fanfest ended up being the most complex episode to date. I first watched it enthralled (oh, Jamie! :) ), then on the second viewing I started nitpicking (no "tell the truth"! Wrong ring! Wrong pearls! ). Then as I watched it over and over -- and I don't plan to stop soon -- so many beautiful details and subtle emotions are coming out of the incredible performances, that I now love it. If the "missing bits" appear in the next episodes, great, but if not, I'm okay with it too. They're in my head, complementing this beautiful episode. I feel I'm being truly pampered by this whole production, and it feels SO GOOD! :) -- Rita, 05:05:23 09/23/14 Tue
