Trying to drum up more support for the Jacobite cause, Claire and Jamie (Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan) pay a call on Lord Lovat (Clive Russell), Jamie's grandsire, in the new episode "The Fox's Lair." Colum MacKenzie (Gary Lewis), Jamie's uncle, also is visiting, however, and he has other plans. It may all be moot, however, as Lord Lovat's wily machinations revolve primarily around making sure that his own interests are served, whatever happens.
The show reaches all the way back to the golden age of television and "The Honeymooners" for the title of the new episode "To the Moon Elmo," which finds neighbors and friends Elmo, Rosita and Abby pretending to be astronauts and using their imaginations to "go into space." Chris lends a hand when they need help figuring out which "space tool" to use for repairs when their space ship get ripped.
Two weeks of festivities continue today at Charlotte Motor Speedway, where Xfinity Series drivers get set to do battle in the Hisense 4K TV 300. The likes of Ty Dillon, Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez, Elliott Sadler and Brandon Jones will take to the North Carolina track's 1-mile oval in a race won last year by Austin Dillon, who has since moved on to the Sprint Cup.
Music lovers have had a friend in James Taylor for many, many years, and this episode showcases the veteran talent performing tunes both long-familiar and newer. "Fire and Rain" and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" -- and, of course, the Carole King-written "You've Got a Friend" -- are among classics on the roster, but the hour also draws selections from the recent "Before This World," which was Taylor's first album of original music in 13 years.
