The Englishman Must Live TSP Week 8

This week’s The Scottish Prisoner podcast, “The Englishman Must Live,” covers chapters 15 and 16. Lord John, Jamie, and Tom Byrd set out to Ireland aboard ship. Jamie, as per usual, is a seasick heap, as soon as the ship leaves port. Tobias Quinn unexpectedly pops up with an opium based remedy and quickly “befriends” the trio.

Jamie is so thoroughly drugged, he sleeps through the remainder of the voyage, and the trip to the pub room he wakes up in. As his brain clears in the company of Lord John and Tom, Quinn enters the room under the guise of checking on Jaime. He provides a wee nip of whisky for his coffee, and help getting horses and a coach. He’s placing himself in that tour guide position quite nicely. John takes the bait without question, while Jamie tries to extricate them from Quinn’s “help”.

The ride to Athlone Castle seems pleasant enough, until John is awakened to the sound of Jamie preventing his murder. This complicates the situation for John beyond his impending meeting with Siverly and the details surrounding that situation. He learns Quinn and Jamie have some history and that Quinn has some Jacobite plan he’s working on.

Is Jamie taking part in Quinn’s plan? What will John do with this information? You’ll need to listen to find out.

Trust Me The Scottish Prisoner Week 7

This week’s The Scottish Prisoner episode, “Trust Me,” covers chapters 13 and 14. Jamie is awakened in his bed by a female intruder. It’s none other than Minnie, The Duchess of Pardloe. She asks of him a task to do with Edward Twelvetrees, but Lord John and The Duke of Pardloe, must not know. She implores him to keep John away from this knowledge. It would be certain disaster if the paths and information cross.

Lord John overhears words and desperation, that break his heart. There’s nothing he can offer in the way of comfort. Nor should he do anything given the situation.

Jamie is in desperate need for peace and quiet. Argus House is nearly as chaotic with busyness as Versailles! He goes on his own hunt for a small place of sanctuary, to secure a fridstool. He finds what he is seeking, only to open his eyes to a shocked Lord John staring at him. Anger ensues. The gap between them since the stable incident at Helwater comes to a near boil. John finally asks him to follow and takes him into a place that will afford some privacy for them to speak. By the end of their conversation, like the newly sprouting vines, their relationship is back on track. At least they have mutual respect, with the past has been put behind them.

Tomorrow they go to Ireland with John’s valet, Tom Byrd in toe. The real adventure begins.

Oh What A Feeling The Scottish Prisoner Week 5

John and Jamie finally converge in this week’s The Scottish Prisoner installment, “Oh What A Feeling,” covering chapters 9 and 10. Before that inevitability, feelings of all sorts are running high. Anger, passion, longing, anxiety, fear, to name a few. John and Jamie both are doing battle with memories and difficult emotions.

Jamie finds himself in the grip of a panic attack when he sees Colonel Quarry in the duke’s drawing room. He flees the house for the park across the street. He needs air. With a polite tail upon him, he can move freely. Out of the bushes comes the Irishman, Tobias Quinn. He has designs on getting Jamie out of there to Ireland for his own purposes. Jamie is having none of that!

John is soaked through and angrily walking the flooding streets of London, when an acquaintance gives him a piece of good advice. He makes his way to his favorite club, the Beefsteak. Dry clothes, a bath, and some brandy improve his outlook greatly. His encounter with Harry Quarry and an old Hanoverian friend, give him even more solid footing.

We get to dive in deeper with John in these chapters, getting to look behind the curtain of his private life.  He’s a complex and complicated man.
