Just finished S2 of my Netflix watching. So a bit of a summary of the season, its so frustrating how stupid BPC was. Jamie was a near military genius and everything he said came true and/or would have worked, but BPC kept listening to that fool general John. Claire was right, they made a hero out an absolute idiot. Instead of saving Scotland, he destroyed it. I guess you can't change big things.
So if Roger is the MacKenzie "heir" (wasn't that what the family tree showed, that he was supposedly direct descendant of Colum), what happened to Hammish and his descendants? since the MacKenzie's never formally took part of the rebellion, wouldn't Castle Leoch and that clan have been spared? I know there was a gravestone for MacKenzie, but they had, what, 3-4 guys tops? or was there more? Oh and who raised Hammish?
Ah, so close to Geillis, but couldn't 'change' history too much, or she would have recognized Claire back in 1743. How did Geillis know she'd get sent back to the "right time" to do anything to help BPC? Since Claire, who 20 years previously landed in 1743 and Geillis obviously landed some years earlier.
I loved how they showed 1968 a bit dull and muted with browns around Claire, but the moment she learns Jamie survived Culloden, the color suddenly brightens up. Great way of showing that Claire just listed through life without Jamie, in another world indeed.
Looking forward to starting S3. Hope we get to see Murtagh and Fergus again too. Guess locations will have to change again (eventually), since Red Jamie is pretty noticeable. he won't get a pardon this time.
Sad seeing Lallybrook in ruins. I know so many manor houses went into disrepair as owners couldn't keep up the repairs without sufficient income, but it looks like it was abandoned a good long time previously. fire maybe?
