“You cannot save a man that doesn’t want saving,” Jamie said to Claire after being brutally crippled and raped by Capt. Black Jack Randall, as we learned in the season finale of the Starz hit Outlander. Jamie was convinced he’d never be happy again, but Claire wasn’t willing to live without him. Their overwhelming love and the hope of changing Highlander history gave promise to a new future and a new season, as the couple fled Scotland for Paris. With a new world and a baby on the way, happier times surely await the soulmates, right? To help provide more […]

Outlander season finale recap: How to save someone who doesn’t want to be saved

Outlander season finale, episode 16 “To Ransom A Man’s Soul” (original airdate May 30, 2015) Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies both deserve Emmy consideration, as they translated the most horrifying and graphic material from the novel into one of the most scaring episodes we’ve ever seen on TV. Heugan left us jaw-dropped and pained as season 1 of Outlander came to a brutal and emotionally charged ending. The episode begins with the beating of drums and a marching-flute melody playing in the background as we see the British army gather outside Wentworth Prison. Inside the walls cameras follow the cracks […]

Outlander episode 15 “Wentworth Prison” (original airdate May 16, 2015) As the noose gets raised, one prisoner after another gets a swift shove off of a platform to meet their final fate at Wentworth Prison.

The two muse about the aftermath of the noose, as MacQuarrie tries to find the bright side.

Jenny is delegating the tasks with her newborn baby in arm. Ian (Steven Cree) is frustrated — recouping in a chair, with his arm in a sling — and demands to know what Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) plan is. “I intend to get my husband back,” she tells. Clearly, she can’t go alone and Ian knows it. He tries to take a moment to gather his strength, but the man lost his leg (his fake one […]

Outlander Episode 13 recap: At what cost is “The Watch”

Outlander Episode 13 “The Watch” (original airdate May 2, 2015) The episode begins as if no time has elapsed, Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) in the foyer of Lallybroch with a gun pointed at his face by a group of bandits. Claire comes down the stairs and stares helplessly flanking one side of the room, Jenny comes around a corner and helms the other side. But it’s going to be a showdown “Taran put your gun down,” Jenny says. OK, so she knows the bloke. A good sign. “I found this scoundrel in here, Jenny,” Taran MacQuarrie (Douglas Henshall) tells. “He’s lucky […]

Jack Randall exposed …Recap: Outlander Episode 12 “Lallybroch”

Outlander “Lallybroch” Episode 12 (original airdate April 25, 2015) Let’s start by saying there were plenty of visually stunning scenes in Episode 12 of Outlander — some beautiful (the cinematography of Scotland in this episode is breathtaking), some horrifying (the floggings) and some just downright nasty (Randall schlopping out his ballocks, OMG). The episode opens with lavish panoramics of the Scottish hills and seaside —simply beautiful. As the aerial views zoom closer to land we see Claire and Jamie on horse making their way to what we presume to be Lallybroch, Jamie’s ancestral home. Claire and Jamie playfully chat. Probably […]
