Last week on Outlander, Jocasta (Maria Doyle Kennedy) named Jamie (Sam Heughan) her heir, but Claire (Caitriona Balfe) had a problem owning slaves to the detriment of their own lives. Predictably, a white man in the wrong caused a slave to touch him and now wanted the slave to die by hanging the slave via meat hook. Claire begged Jamie, as the man of the house, to save the slave. Jamie did and Claire performed surgery on him in the house. All of the plantation owners demanded the head of the slave or threatened to burn down the house. In an impossible situation, Claire allowed the slave to die with dignity.

Blessed Are The Children Header

Blessed are the Children
Directed by Chris Moore
Written by Chris Moore and Chris Wesley
Starring Kaley Ball, Keni Bounds, Arian Thigpen, Jordan Boyd, Michael Kinslow, David Moncrief
Not Rated
98 Minutes
Macabre Films
Released October 23, 2018
