Shaving. A Straight Edge ep106

In The Garrison Commander episode 106 we begin with the straight edge as part of opening credits. Obviously an important piece of information foreshadowing a scene for us.

Into the episode, we are at the garrison, Claire has assisted with an amputation, and is returning to the dining room expecting to gain her passage to Inverness as promised by Lord Thomas. Unexpectedly though all the men are gone except for Black Jack Randall and Cpl. Hawkins.

Not only are the two men in the room, Hawkins is straight edge shaving BJR. Obviously a vehicle pointing back to credits. A very weird aside for me. Then to a a flashback/flash forward to Frank as Claire shaving Frank with the same straight edge razor now in the hand of Hawkins.

A very sexy shaving scene highlighting the family heirloom straight edge razor in the deft hand of Claire.

History and future connecting beautifully.

Claire is now firmly with Frank on her mind as she is shocked back into reality moving the scene forward.

The Engagement Ep106

Good old clever, cunning Uncle Dougal. In order to save her from Ft. William imprisonment by Black Jack Randall, he has a master plan to turn Claire from an Englishwoman to a Scot. Though he lacks a magic wand, he does employ Ned Gowan, ESQ who skillfully crafts a marriage contract between Claire and Jamie. Turning her into a Scot means she cannot be compelled to prison without just cause. Marriage to Jamie means voila instant Scotswoman.

Upon speaking to Jamie, he plays it off as he ought repay her for all the healing skill she has wielded upon him and being a good friend. As in a good friend would not turn her into Randall, oh no. So sure marriage sounds about decent to him.

Wisely as they talk, he hands her a cup and pours out a generous drink. She is beside herself, but see no other answer either.

He is quite fine starting the honeymoon tomorrow, as it pleases her. Such practicality. Yet she knows not his true feelings for her. She did not even know his full name (here it was on the marriage contract. Oh I miss the utterance of that line.)

As a last ditch idea Claire asks if he minds she is not a virgin. With a Scottish pause, no he utters. Then the bombshell, he tells her he is a virgin. Better one of them knows what to do. Jamie so endearing. Oh Claire now has some thoughts and a drink.

They watch her pass. Murtagh seems quite pleased. Jamie might be a tad bit as well.
