The next Outlander episode is nearly upon us. I hope you’ve your menu, drinks and viewing partners ready!

I expect a very lively episode with twists and turns. I venture a certain duo will beed to rely upon one another again. Jamie is family of the Mackenzie’s bur also a threat. He too is an outsider of sorts. Claire, dear Sassenach Claire we know she is an outsider here.

And Dougal is sure to find out that Claire is not an easy catch.

Tulach Ard to The Gathering.

Claire Ingratiated Bound Not Free

Claire worked very hard to ingratiate herself by working into daily life, healing the sick and wounded in order to gain her freedom from Colum and Castle Leoch. Instead she became more deeply bound by her efforts and skill. This became utterly apparent after she healed Mrs. Fitz’ nephew from poisoning. Jamie’s was the bearer of practical thoughts. The idea that now Colum would unlikely want to do without a good healer.

Her face says all. The plan backfired. She is nonplussed and feeling exceedingly trapped. She must get back to the stones.

She is set with grit and need to find the way out.

Rigors of Dressing Claire

Dressing 18th century Claire is quite involved. After arriving at Castle Leoch underdressed, bedraggled, exhausted in episode 102, Claire tends to Jamie then sleeps the rest of the day.

Enter Mrs. Fitz. She unceremoniously rouses Claire to get her presentable for meeting Himself, Colum MacKenzie, Laird of Clan MacKenzie.

It began something like this….

The giggles. Her sad sack face at Mrs. Fitz taking away her food. The sweetest three year old pout ever.

The dressing ritual, but first undressing is first (no nude shots will be shown here). The 20th century undergarments cause a bit of reaction from Mrs. Fitz.

Mrs. Fitz asks what type of corset that is. A brassiere, Claire. The Fitz face. From France Claire explains. Mrs. Fitz accepts that as truth. (Ye ken the French are known for odd clothing).

According to Terry Dresbach, this scene was filmed start to finished and edited down. It took about 20 minutes to get Cait/Claire dressed. It was very common to have a dresser versus doing it oneself daily.
