Claire and Dougal are questioned at the local garrison, and Dougal is treated with hostility and disdain by the British occupiers. Claire lets down her guard, but her headstrong opinions get her into trouble again, and she discovers the true nature of Black Jack Randall when left alone with him.
Did You Know?
When Claire and Dougal are being escorted to meet the eponymous " Garrison Commander," Claire remarks in her voice-over that the British soldiers surrounding them are called "Redcoats" at this time in history and not "Tommies." Interestingly enough, "Tommy" is a shortened version of "Tommy Atkins" and while the origin of the term is a subject of debate, but it is known to have been used as early as 1743 - the very year Claire finds herself.
Side note: while the term is still used as of 2018 in the British Army in the abridged version "Tom" (especially in the Infantry Regiments, to specifically refer to a junior enlisted soldier), and would have been used in World War II, it is much more often associated with World War I. See more
Brigadier General Lord Thomas states Claire has had a mesmerizing experience. The term "mesmerizing" was not yet coined as Frank Mesmer was born in 1734 and would not have been experimenting in 1743. See more

No. So long it as it does not bother you that I am. I reckon one of us should ken what we're doing.
