Jamie and the others manage to rescue Claire from the hands of Black Jack Randall but Jamie is particularly upset with her for wandering off into the woods and getting caught in the first place. Harsh words are exchanged but Claire is prepared overlook anything he's said - but she isn't quite prepared for the punishment she receives at his hand for disobeying him and putting everyone's life in danger. They return to Castle Leoch where Jamie must explain to Laoghaire MacKenzie how it is he is now married. Colum MacKenzie meanwhile is none too pleased with their return, particularly that they were collecting money for the Jacobites. Written by garykmcd

Outstanding Work - unparalleled
4 April 2015 | by debkondoSee all my reviews

Superb, worth every minute of the 6 months wait. The acting, storyline, Scotland, musical score exceeded any imagined expectations. And of course, Sam and Cait were outstanding, their acting, dialog, so passionate, it tore my guts out. Sam Heughan is so handsome from every camera angle, it takes my breath away to look at him. His acting is so fierce, so passionate, it is palpable. You can reach out and touch it. Catriona Balfe is stunning and equally as fierce confronting Jamie. Mctavish and Lewis, the brothers Mackenzie, another great performance: the acting so much in the EYES, the stares, the glares! The writers have paid a real homage to the brilliant writing of Diana Galbadon, I recommend Outlander to anyone who wants to be transported to another time and be infused with a culture, language, the kilt, the history - a time that is portrayed with such poignancy that makes one want to go through the stones. Yearn for a time of such romance and passion for love and causes.
