The Wedding Episode 107 was quite a ride. A kilt drops sort of ride. That happens though after the wedding ceremony.
The actual ceremony is shown in flashback as Jamie and Claire are chatting. He is explaining about his day, his three conditions to marriage, and all the preparations in his day prior yo the wedding (more posts to come).
He asks Claire what she did that day. Well DRINK. Remember the whisky she took off Dougal the night before?
Well a helluva hangover she had but she remembers a good bit of the wedding. The important parts. She is thinking of Frank, of needing to be protected, of her attraction to Jamie, of Inverness and the stones.
Jamie remembers all of it. Every moment. You see he loved Claire already. He wants to protect and keep her. To touch, taste, be consumed by her.
He sees Claire and the sky cleared. The sun burst through.
Ned has a strumpet for a date onlooking with pride.
Claire is beautiful. Sad. Conflicted.
Dougal and Murtagh approve.
Jamie closes in.
He bows. Her servant.
Claire has one more thought. She cannot marry him without knowing his name (er marriage contract sister.).
They formally meet.
Dougal declares time to get on wit’ it.
On the way. Claire takes off Frank’s ring.
In they enter.
To the altar they stand.
The unexpected blood vow. Dougal. Dirk. Tied.
Repeat after me.
You are blood of my blood. And Bone of my bone. I give you my body that we two may be one. I give you my spirit til our life shall be done.
Now kiss yer bride. And the bride kisses back.
I present Mr. and Mrs. Fraser.
