Brianna to Lord John: “You are impossible not to like.” Perhaps the most true statement ever spoken in the series. I think he’s the most likable person so far in the series, with the possible exception of dear old Mrs. Fitz. Lord John has been a constant support for the Fraser’s. I just hope he doesn’t have a bad end because of it. And I hope Brianna and Willie meet soon.
i think it’s incredibly stupid that they left the prison keys on the floor for Stephen Bonnet to use to escape. Yes, they were in a rush, but they apparently never learn that he’s good at saving himself. Given how soon the jail blew up after our guys left, there was not time for Stephen to escape, but I am sure he did, and will cause more havoc.
I do like that Briana went to visit Stephen to ty to forgive him. that’s very mature. I was iffy on whether he should know that he possibly has a child, but it did appear that he felt some responsibility, so I guess that’s good.
I liked Roger’s story and how he berated himself for stupidity, but continued to do “stupid” things. The priest’s story was interesting. I agreed with Roger that he should just say the Lord’s Prayer and call it a day. (It’s ironic that the Mohawk were converted to Christianity so thoroughly that they were adamant enough about the baptism to kill him because of it.) I admire faith but his stubbornness was more ego-driven in my opinion. I didn’t suspect the end of the healer until right before it happened, so that shocked me. I suspect Roger’s actions will make him more respected, but I could be wrong, because of the loss of a healer.
