Show/Episode: Outlander Season 2, Episode 8, “The Fox's Lair”
For some time this season I have lamented the big-picture storytelling in lieu of the tight character-focused plot of season one. Well, last week I got what I asked for, and I’m sorry. So, so sorry. After the agony that was last week—everyone ugly cried at that episode, right?—Jamie and Claire are on the same page again. They are different, as something so tragic changes one, but they are together and are no longer holding grudges against one another.
Even better? We’re home in Scotland!
Being at Lallybroch helps heal these two. The potatoes are coming in and Jamie and Claire are back to behaving like those in love. … and if we know one thing about Outlander, that sweetness never lasts. The Clans have posted their support for Prince Charles. Jamie’s name was forged on the document. He’s now a traitor to the British crown. Once again Jamie’s life is on the line. Seems like that happens every time they come back to Lallybroch.
