Bravo! Bravo! BRAVO!! They did it!
|Claire and “her” ladies|
|THAT Saffron Dress|
As Claire goes to Master Raymond, she exits the carriage with regal music playing. It’s a perfect fit for her entrance here. And can we just stop a minute and gawk over that saffron cloak and hand painted dress? This is absolutely stunning and sets her apart from those on the street.
|L’Hopital des Anges|
In L’Hopital we are introduced to two more major characters for this story, Mother Hildegarde and Bouton. But we are introduced in a very organic and not forced method. It flows with the story. I have seen some criticism about the omission of the first encounter Jamie has with Bouton. Although that would have been a nice scene to view, it is not NECESSARY. It would only be stopping the rhythm of the story to satisfy the book reader. Maybe they did film that scene and it will be in the extras. If not, you can always go back and read the book, it’s right there for you.
