Last week on Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) had severe WWII flashbacks in the midst of prepping the army, who are sorely in need of training. When she finally talked about it with Jamie (Sam Heughan), she felt a bit better, but war is ugly no matter who wins. One of the most pivotal moments in the books happened last week, as a young (John) William Grey was captured and spilled all for fear of Claire’s “honor.” Jamie spared him and he is now in his debt. Dougal (Graham McTavish) arrived at the camp with his men, and was really proud of Jamie for joining the cause. Of course, Dougal got in trouble often because he is Dougal. Jamie took a whipping and thus was an example of a true leader.

Last week on Outlander, Claire and Jamie Fraser (Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan) were back in Lallybroch, along with Fergus and Murtagh (Romann Berrux, Duncan Lacroix), after Paris broke them. Being with Jenny and Ian (Laura Donnelly, Steven Cree) and the kids started to heal them. Bad news followed as Prince Charles sent a missive that declares his father the rightful king, and he forged Jamie’s signature. The Frasers decided if “they can’t beat em, join em,” to hopefully turn the future defeat and massacre into victory. They tried to get his grandfather, “the fox,” to join, but he was clever and managed to play both sides through his son. Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) tried to make amends.

They set up fake smallpox at the Comte’s (Stanley Weber) ship, and even had Murtagh play bandit when that did not work. Jamie went to duel with Randall (Tobias Menzies), which resulted in Claire screaming, bleeding, and fainting, Jamie sticking a sword in Randall’s groin, and both men arrested.

Last week on Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) interfered with Mary Hawkins and Alex Randall (Rosie Day and Laurence Dobiesz), by convincing Alex to leave the girl. Prince Charles (Andrew Gower) came up with another scheme to get the money, and it involved partnering Jamie (Sam Heughan) with the Comte (Stanley Weber). Claire ran into BlackJack Randall (Tobias Menzies) at Versailles, and they exchanged hostile pleasantries after the shock. The King (Lionel Lingelser) showed up and humiliated Randall to the delight of Jamie, who strolled up just in time. After the king and entourage leave, Jamie set a time to duel with Randall, and then fought about it with Claire later. He angrily agreed to not kill him for Frank.

The Frasers bring their cat and mouse game home, as they plan a dinner party to make political moves.
