The long-awaited, highly anticipated “print shop scene” episode has arrived! You knew there would be disappointment in the crowd. After all, everyone has a favorite moment they want to see brought to life, and you can’t possibly recreate everyone’s moment, let alone portray it exactly as they had in mind. Fortunately for me, I didn’t have any particular notions or desires, so I wasn’t terribly disappointed. I, too, had read Voyager with great anticipation for Jamie and Claire’s reunion, and was thrilled to experience it, but… eh, we’ll get to that later. So let’s discuss

Only four years (or thereabouts) went by in the eighteenth century, but they were an eventful four-ish years.
Did the episode meet my hopeful expectations? Absofreakintlutely. So, let’s discuss
