Greetings Obsassenachs! This week I’m discussing 512: “Never My Love”. Join me for a wild ride as I express my thoughts on how Lionel Brown matches up to some of the greatest villains in this series, Jamie’s immense sense of guilt and failure of what Claire endured, and the stunning cinematography of this episode. I also chat about Claire’s crazy dreamscape, it’s many, many Easter eggs, and why I felt that this particular form of escapism made total sense for Claire’s character.
