Claire Must Try

Claire realized in Episode 103 that her plan to earn her freedom through garnering trust and favor yoked her further to Colum and Castle Leoch. She made herself needed. She proved her worth.

Nay a Beaton but a finer healer than they had ever seen.


She finds herself desperate to escape. Desperate to get back to Craigh na Dun. She wants only to get back to her time, to Frank, to her life.

She undoubtedly will try as she might to meet her goal.

Ultimately, complications arise for her, Jamie and the Highlander men from her actions.

As always, I am rooting for Claire, her passion, and sometimes impractical, rash ways.

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.
