BWW Recap: Tonight's OUTLANDER Takes Us Inside 'Wentworth Prison'BWW Recap: Tonight's OUTLANDER Takes Us Inside 'Wentworth Prison'
by Kara McCoy - May 16, 2015

Is it possible that only last week we watched Claire deliver a Scotch-ified 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' while dressed in drag? Do I have that right? I find that so hard to believe after sitting through 'Wentworth Prison,' the season's penultimate episode, and a different beast altogether. For fans of the book who already knew exactly what would go down at Wentworth, I'm sure this was something of a highly-anticipated episode. It was for me, anyway, and even though I knew what to expect, it's one thing to read it on a page and another to see it played out on screen. Tonight's episode was, in a word, heavy. Ha, and only one week ago I called 'The Search' 'kooky.' Take me back to simpler times. Alright, I'm being dramatic. In all seriousness though, 'Wentworth Prison', if you look past the obvious--which I will certainly be getting to--was a very good episode. (more...)
