The buzz is thick. Fans of the books and Outlander TV series are a frenzy over The Wedding episode airing tonight.
ANTICI—-PATION is palpable.
Claire needs protection from Black Jack Randall. If not for being turned into a Scot by marriage then legally Dougal would have to turn her over at Ft. William. Clever Dougal and Ned Gowan.
Jamie is the chosen groom by Dougal. No prospects. A wanted man. Available. More revelations to come later. It is complicated.
Dougal informs Claire after their visit to the garrison and her horrific altercation with BJR that she must be turned into a Scot by marriage. Obviously Dougal and Ned have been a plotting. She is reticent but prefers staying out of English prison.
Oh such a lovely engagement it was too. I am still smirking about her taking the entire whisky bottle for herself.
The ever excellent godfather Murtagh assures Jamie Claire is a good one. She has a sweet smile like his mother Ellen had. Murtagh is going to make us all tear up.
Before sundown the next day the wedding must take place. Preparations. The vows. Before the wedding night to seal the deal. Certain tissues will be required. Jamie in full regalia. Claire in a loaned but beautiful dress. A new/old kirk. The blood vow. We are in for a ride tonight.
The lawful consummation must take place. An inn full of witnesses are present. Jamie is raring to go. Come on he IS a virgin, had been wanting some Sassenach “kisses” and obviously loves Claire. She is now struggling with being a bigamist. An age old time traveler question! Can she be a bigamist if her husband has not been born yet? Anyway, she is also obviously attracted to Jamie and as agreed to the consummation but… Again it is complicated.
The Claire and Jamie story begins tonight.
He declares everything he is and has. All in baby that is Jamie. This is far more than simply protecting Claire from BJR.
For Claire, well you shall see.
Slaintè mhath! We have a wedding to attend…..
