Storyline

The Gathering shows Claire's attempt at her first real planned escape. The run-ins she has with various characters on the way include a major run-in with Dougal, and yet another moment with Jamie alone - building their relationship. Also an oath-taking ceremony could have awful results if not handled carefully. Written by VickieD

Quotes

Dougal MacKenzie: [to Colum at the oath-taking] I swear by the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by the holy iron that I hold, to give ye my fealty and pledge ye my loyalty to the name of clan Mackenzie. And if ever I shall raise my hand against ye in rebellion, I ask that this holy iron shall pierce my heart.

Excellent Show, and Keeps Getting Better!
3 September 2014 | by LallybrochlauraSee all my reviews

Having now watched the first four episodes multiple times, this is the strongest episode so far. The production quality continues to astonish, and the acting is superb. In Episode 104, "The Gathering," we see Claire and Jamie each come into their own strengths as they grapple with challenging circumstances. Caitriona Balfe as Claire is magnificent, and Sam Heughan as Jamie is a phenomenon. Both are giving star-making turns in Outlander, and the material is giving them plenty to work with. A stellar supporting cast and historically-rich sets, locations, and costumes makes this series fascinating to watch - and each show worth multiple views. Highly recommended to those enjoying historical and political drama, action-adventure, and stories of love and family.
