On last week’s Outlander, Jenny (Laura Donnelly) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) set out to rescue Jaime (Sam Heughan). They find the Redcoat camp, but no Jaime! Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) comes along and tags out Jenny. She has GOT to get back to her baby (see last week’s breast milk expression Emmy wish). I was kinda pissed that nobody even attempted to rescue MacQuarrie (Douglas Henshall). He ended up being an all right guy. Murtagh and Claire started a traveling act, dancing and singing to ferret out Jaime. Even though a gypsy act stole their song, they did get word. That word ended up being Dougal (Graham McTavish), who only agreed to help if Claire agreed to marry him upon failure. Claire, to everybody’s surprise, agreed.

Outlander last week found the star-swept couple in a very tense situation in their own home at Lallybroch. “The Watch,” kind of like the Scottish Mafia, came to the home to get some dinner, and were suspicious of Jaime (Sam Heughan) from the start. Of course, hothead that he is, he took exception to them being crass, setting a wagon of hay on fire, and generally being asses. The main guy was not so bad. MacQuarrie (Douglas Henshall), who recognized a solid man in Jaime, so much so that he did not bat an eye when Jaime (really Ian – Steven Cree), killed a hired hand who recognized Jaime and the fat price on his head. The men went out on a mission. Only Ian, limping home because his fake leg was missing and the guy who helped him came back. Jaime and MacQuarrie had been captured.

On Outlander last week, Claire and Jaime (Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan) came home to Lallybroch, to welcoming yet acidic arms. His sister Jenny (Laura Donnelly) and her husband Ian (Steven Cree and as close to a brother Jaime will ever have again), have been so worried, but have also been bearing the burden of acting like interim laird. After exchanging unpleasant memories of Captain Randall (Tobias Menzies) wanting sex with them both, they are finally start to feel some semblance of a peaceful life in their home. Until…

Let’s recap last week’s Outlander, before we get to this week’s review.

Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Geillis (Lotte Verbeek) were defendants at a witch trial, but were really not allowed to present a defense, to no one’s surprise. Ned Gowan (Bill Paterson) did try though. It got to a point where he told the women he could really only save Claire if she renounces Geillis. She refuses of course. Geillis says 1968 to Claire, reveals her smallpox vaccine scar to the crowd, and shouts to the mob that she is the witch. Claire was whipped until my hero, I mean her hero, Jaime (Sam Heughan) comes and saves her. I really hope Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) gets hers for arranging this in order to get Jaime for herself.

Let’s recap last week’s Outlander, before we get to this week’s review.

Previously on Outlander, Jaime (Sam Heughan) is hopeful the Duke of Sandringham (Simon Callow) can help clear his name, but Claire (Caitriona Balfe) knows from other husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) that the Duke is a secret friend of BlackJack Randall. She goes without Jaime’s knowledge to use that leverage. Claire finds a baby left for the “fairies” and mourns. Geillis (Lotte Verbeek) reveals she is having Dougal’s (Graham McTavish) baby. Good thing both their spouses “accidentally” died. Colum (Gary Lewis) squashes that love connection by banishing Dougal, sending Jaime to accompany him. Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) sets Claire up so she would be arrested for witchcraft along with Geillis.

Season 1 Episode 10: “By The Pricking Of My Thumbs”

The review of Outlander 1.10 “By The Pricking Of My Thumbs” synopsis is coming up, but first, a recap of last week’s episode, Outlander 1.9.

Last week, may have been hard for some feminists to bear. Jaime (Sam Heughan) rescued Claire (Caitriona Balfe) from Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) at literally the point of no return (as far as rape goes). It wasn’t the almost rape that feminists would object to (although bad – yes). It was the spanking – and not the fun kind. Claire had been trying to return to the 1940s after seeing the stones of Craigh na Dun in the distance. She heard Frank (also Tobias Menzies) and he heard her through time, but she got captured. Jaime rescued her at the expense of danger to his men, after she deliberately disobeyed an order. They had a screaming fight, which was resolved, but he had to beat her with a belt on the ass. It was expected in his culture. She froze him out of bed in anger for a while. He loves her so much, he swore a blood oath he would never hurt her like that again. The last scene of that episode was equivalent to soft porn, but they did make up.

Let’s recap what’s come before for our lovely time traveling WWII nurse, and her love, the strapping Highlander, before reviewing last night’s episode. Spoiler alert!

Outlander is back! This time traveling, romantic, multiperiod series, based on Diana Galbadon’s multibook collection (she is currently working on book 9!), had us sighing in our plaids. When we last left our favorite couple way back in September, James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) were in a bit of a pickle, as Claire had run away in an effort to get back to the magic stone formations of Craigh na Dun and back to her 1940s husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies). And she almost made it. We had seen Frank try to find Claire and go to the other side of time at the rocks. They almost heard each other and found each other when she was captured by Black Jack Randall’s men. Black Jack had just readied himself to force himself on Claire when…
