Our favorite couple is moving closer to the fight of their lives and dealing with all the struggles that go with it. Je suis prest. They’re ready. I’m not.
I just realized grandsire let his son fight in his place so he won’t be executed if the British win, and he’ll reap the benefits if the Jacobites win. This man is awful.
*Jamie looks around* ARE THESE THE MEN WITH WHICH I AM TO DEFEND SCOTLAND?
Dance, Murtagh, dance!
LOL…he called Lovat an old bastard.
Wee Fergus!! **cackling** He’s telling on Murtagh!!
This camp look less than comfortable.
Angus and Rupert! What a great reunion! WELP. Here’s Dougal, too.
“It wouldn’t be Scotland without you, Dougal.”
OH. Dougal is happy to fight side by side with Jamie. And everyone’s like Dougal has that Scottish pride.
These men don’t even march right. I’m so ready to see these training montages.
Let’s get those shirts off gentlemen… (Don’t pretend to be above it. This season’s been hard. We deserve it.)
Murtagh is their drill instructor!! BEST EVER.
Whoa, a WWII flashback!
They’re teaching Fergus to play! This makes me happy.
Poor Claire. She’s seen so much blood and violence. She really deserves some happiness.
My sexuality = Jamie fighting
Dougal is jumping the gun here. Those guys are still farmers, dude. The Red Coats will destroy them.
Jamie is being level headed. Thank god.
I really love these WWII flashbacks with Claire. It’s so awesome to see what she did during the war, but she’s going to break with all this stress.
“I am ready.” Je suis prest. I’M NOT.
STOP, JAMIE. Your version of safe is sending her through the stones.
These guys are the absolute worst at directions and marching.
Jamie is like “we’re screwed” they need a pep talk.
Damn, leader Jamie is intense.
Me: **SHOUTS IN GAELIC, TOO**
Dougal, I didn’t mean for you and yours to undress.
Jamie to Dougal:
Oh, this should be an interesting convo between Dougal and Claire…
Dougal, do you seriously think she’s going to help you?
Claire just gave him a set down, too. She’s wreaking havoc all over the Highlands for people that have wronged her. First LEGHAIR now Dougal.
OH MY GAWD, CLAIRE!!
“I love Scotland more.” <– I believe that.
Things are finally coming along it seems. They got their weapons finally!
Murtagh and Jamie wondering about Claire’s wellbeing is so dear to my heart.
Yup, Claire’s gonna snap. This is intense PTSD.
Camp security apparently sucks.
Dougal drug men in with him and all of them leave…WELP. I guess they did come under duress. Dougal is seriously stealing clansmen.
“A man that fights for his own beliefs is worth ten that are forced to fight for someone else’s.”
You don’t see action yet, Dougal, because they’re NOT READY!
HA! Dougal has watch now.
Under arrest? I mean, that seems a wee bit harsh, does it not?
Now, Jamie’s doling out lashes? What is this world I’ve stepped into?
Battle isn’t going to be a good place for Claire. Her PTSD will cripple her.
Oh no! Claire was in an attack during the war.
This is horrific.
Private Lucas’ screams are heartbreaking.
I love how Claire shares everything with Jamie. He’s her confidant. This makes everything coming from here so much harder process.
“I’m not sure I’m ready to go to war again.”
“Like a dragonfly in amber…” AND THERE IT IS.
All these promises about never being alone again. He leaves her with a child and he never knows it.
Jamie just broke that kid’s arm!
WELP. Conveying with a British officer isn’t getting you anywhere, kid.
“Oh, is your arm broken? I thought I heard something snap.” JAMIE!!!
This kid kinda looks like Thackery Binx from Hocus Pocus.
She called Jamie a sadist AGAIN!!
Murtagh smirking is me!
Of course Jamie stole a kiss.
You better be telling the truth, kid.
He has guts! Threatening to kill Jamie like that.
Dougal’s men suck at watching camp, too…
Oh wow. Jamie’s going to be whipped.
They’re going to slip into the British camp and cause some damage. I like it!
I’m digging this face paint.
I think not letting Dougal fight is the absolute rudest thing Jamie could tell him to do.
And here are our Highlanders getting their hands dirty!
They burnt the wheels!!!
Ummmm…let’s get stuff going with the kilt and face paint, please.
“That’s not what I expected you to say.”
ME EITHER! DAMMIT.
I love that Claire is riding in the front next to him.
Look at those straight lines, y’all!
Awww…he let Dougal do the introducing.
yay. We’re back with Charles…
UGH. I could do without him forever.
