As Brianna struggles to compartmentalize the trauma she's suffered in the wake of the tragedy that befell her in Wilmington, she refocuses on finding her parents.

Awww, I found it sweet that Lizzie was trying so hard to comfort Brianna and take care of her.

Ha, Brianna and Jamie finally meet - in an alley where he's taking a piss. Just how every girl imagines meeting her long lost father!

On a shallow note, I loved the grey and black knitted shawl thing that Brianna was wearing.

Ian took meeting his cousin very well. I love how he took it all in stride and just said that he has learned not to ask too many questions when it comes to Claire.

I am so glad that Brianna told Claire the whole truth. I was afraid that she was just going to let her believe that the baby was definitely Roger's or that she was going to say that she met some random guy at the tavern and that it was consensual. As painful as it was for her to tell her mother the truth, I think she needed to tell someone what happened. I think it has been good for her to spend time with Claire, Jamie, Ian, and Murtagh while she processes being raped (in addition to dealing with the whole Roger situation) but part of me now wants her to go back to her own time so that she can get some much needed therapy.

I know I have to remember it was a different time, but when Jamie blamed Lizzie for "letting" Brianna leave with Roger while he was manhandling her, I was like BITCH, PLEASE. As if a maid trying to stop a man in public would do anything but get her fired.

I love how fiercely loyal Jamie and Ian are to Brianna. Ian is a sweet boy but he instantly asked Jamie if he wanted him to kill Roger. I found it somewhat hilarious that the only reason Jamie said no was because he didn't want to make Ian a murderer. HA!

I do wonder what Jamie thinks Ian is going to do with Roger. "Get rid of him" and "I don't care what you do with him" but "don't kill him" - okay, so exactly what options does that leave? Put him on a boat? Sell him into indentured servitude? Leave him in an alley and hope he has amnesia from being hit in the head so many times?

I love the knitting on this show too, electricboogaloo. The shawlette wouldn’t be that difficult to reproduce. 

I was glad that Brianna told her mother the truth too, as difficult as it was for her.

As much as I enjoyed the meeting of Jamie and Brianna, I was grossed out about the idea of him holding his d**k one minute and caressing her face the next. 🤢

 

I was also afraid that Brianna would not share the truth. I’m glad she did. That scene was very well done. And I’m glad Claire figured out who was the rapist. I am so tempted to go to the book thread to find out if Bonnet is ever served justice for his crimes. I do think that this episode really highlighted unintended consequences and how they continue to happen.    Are Jamie and Claire morally responsible for all the actions of the man they freed from the scaffold? Including the rape and the child who was thrown in the ocean? I think that would be an interesting discussion.

 

I think that Jamie just lashed out at Lizzie because of his own anger at not being able to protect his daughter. He sent Claire and Brianna to the future to protect them and it’s gotta feel like all that was for naught. I’ll give him a pass for that...

But attacking Roger without Brianna’s confirmation was a stupid stupid thing to do. Typical of his compulsive behavior, and the flip side of the way he can think on his feet. I fear that this will end up being a permanent wedge between him and his daughter. Roger deserves a verbal beat down for his sexist condescension, but not a physical one.

I really enjoyed the “get to know you scenes” and the discussion of Frank. They do need to age up Jamie, though, because he doesn’t look old enough to be Bree’s father.

Unintended consequences and our perennial inability to even acknowledge them is a continuing problem for the entire species on an individual and a collective level dog our every step. 

You bring up an interesting idea about whether Jaime and Claire should be held morally responsible for everything that has happened due to Claire’s presence in the past. Harsh standard and only askable because Claire’s second trip to the past is a choice. But by that standard should all of us be held responsible for unintended consequences of simply being on the planet? For example, I’m answering television posts while people in the third world live in train stations, huffing glue and recycling water bottles. I didn’t do this directly. I’d change it if I knew how, but the relative wealth of the West rests on the suffering of others. How responsible are all of us? 

So, I guess for me, yes we have some responsibility but not direct, Bonnett is responsible for throwing that baby into the sea. I think he would have done this even if there were no time travel in a similar situation. Likewise the rape of Brianna. Even if Claire and by extension Bree never travelled, I think Bonnett would be a rapist. 

One of the universals of life is that all of us want to keep our children from suffering and none of us ever do or can. 

Interesting question. What are we morally responsible for as consequences of our actions multiply or things that don’t even seem connected or able to be changed? Hmm.

I am often icked out by the thought of how dirty everyone is in these times, but I hand wave that away, or especially love scenes would be gross.

I hope I will get to watch it tomorrow- going to a friend's cabin for a few days. 

I bet Bonnet will be the villain for a few years, even though Jamie will of course want to kill him.

Let's not age up anyone, I like my Jamie pretty & young!

Jamie is like our George Hamilton -- or for the younger people here -- Rob Lowe. Or a male Lena Horne. Ageless for a long time ... without the plastic surgery. (Although, I have no idea if any of these people had plastic surgery.)

Yeah, I'm wondering how Briana will take it next episode when she finds out Jamie beat the shit out of the man who didn't rape her. 

I'm curious to see where this will go, assuming Briana keeps the baby. Surely a doctor like Claire wouldn't want her daughter giving birth in the 1700s when medical care was rudimentary at best. Yes, plenty of women did it, but plenty died as well. I can't imagine Claire's penicillin stash is infinite, to say nothing of the absence of vaccines available for a newborn. Very interesting. 

Lizzie is a good friend to Briana. I felt bad when Jamie directed his anger towards her for letting Briana go off with what she assumed was a strange man. 

The show needs to stop doing river scenes. I understand this one was necessary so Ian could tell Briana about the robbery, but the CGI is awful. 

Eta: I've noticed everyone on FB is talking about how this episode was such a tearjerker, so emotional etc. Weirdly enough, it didn't have that much of an impact on me. I was happy to see Briana reunite with her parents, but I thought the previous episodes of the Murtaugh reunion and the Frank flashbacks were much bigger kicks in the feels.

Yeah, I can imagine Jamie confessing to Claire what he did. 

Jamie:  "The man who raped Brianna came to Fraser's Ridge, so I beat the crap out of him.  I dinna kill him though, even though I wanted to."

Claire:  "Wait, what?!  Stephen Bonnet came here?"

Jamie:  "Who said anything about Stephen Bonnet?"

I keep thinking that a big part of the issue stems from Brianna's behavior.  Lass, if you're traveling to the new world with a lady's maid, and you're leaving your lodging for the evening, wouldn't it be smart AND kind to let her know that you've run into an old friend and you'll be away for a couple of hours catching up with him?  I know you were surprised to see him, and Roger did sort of drag you out of the place, but it would have taken 30 seconds to leave word with the bar keep.  At least then Lizzie wouldn't have stayed up all night worried sick, and she might have the possibility of figuring out that the man Brianna left with was probably not the man who brutally raped her.

I was irritated with Roger after his behavior in the last episode (and at the gathering in NC previously) and while I may have thought he deserved a good smack down, I didn't think he deserved anywhere near what Jamie dished out to him.


All that being said, it makes be think less of DG and the Outlander PTB that, given ALL the interesting stories that could have been told about Brianna traveling back in time to 1760's North Carolina, they thought that sex/rape/paternity drama was the most interesting story to tell.  Seriously.   There are more interesting stories to be told about women than what goes on in their vagina/wombs y'all.   See the first seasons of Claire's journey for some examples.  Yeah, this show tends to be particularly rapey, but since they've already had the assault/rape of men (eg Jamie, twice), women (Mary, almost Claire, almost Jenny) tweens/teens (Ian and all the boys who didn't survive Geillis) AND children (Fergus), plus probably more examples I've forgotten, and we've already been shown, repeatedly, that S Bonnet is an evil cruel dude, this just seems unnecessary and a bit lazy. 

On another note, the scenes of life at the homestead, and the knitting together of Brianna with the Fraser family was lovely.  I would seriously watch two or three episodes of just that, with no manufactured drama  (hey, maybe a webisode or two?)  And I really liked that she noticed the warmth/bond between her mother and Jamie (for example she said "I know why she had to come back")  even if it provided an uncomfortable contrast with what she remembers of the relationship between Claire and Frank.   And I like that Jamie was so open about his awareness of Frank's role in Bree and Claire's lives, and how much he owes him for caring for them so much.  Though he can be impulsive and a hothead, Jamie is emotionally mature enough to know that his jealously of Frank's relationship with Bree, while understandable, doesn't need to be front and center if he wants to build a relationship with his daughter.

One thing I really liked about this episode was everyone being open and honest about things, from Jamie/Claire/Brianna about Frank to Brianna telling Claire about being raped. Brianna told Claire that Frank knew Claire eventually went back to Jamie. Brianna didn't hesitate to call Frank her father to Jamie's face, but with no intention of hurting Jamie's feelings. Jamie told Brianna how grateful he was to Frank for raising Brianna and loving her. Brianna told Jamie she felt like she was betraying Frank by talking to Jamie. Claire told Jamie to take Brianna hunting so they could get to know each other better. These are all things that they could have kept to themselves, but all of their relationships improved because they told each other the truth, which I really love (especially since tv shows are known for having the characters keep secrets/facts/feelings to themselves for the added drama).

And I agree that although Jamie sometimes has a hard time controlling his temper, he knows that being blatantly jealous of Frank is going to get him absolutely nowhere with Brianna (or Claire), so I liked that he was able to keep that in check and express only gratitude about Frank to Brianna. He knows that Brianna loves Frank and that he can never replace him, so he has to settle for getting to know her while she's still there.

A staggering amount of drama in this episode and set up for the coming episodes could have been avoided if the characters spoke to each other a little bit more.  It’s the same basis as a goofy comedy.  

I was off base on Lizzie’s seeing Roger and Bree together but things from here out would have been easier if she’d have thought for a second in the tavern.  She knew who was set up there on the first floor and it wasn’t Roger.  That seemed an odd conclusion to which to jump.  

Please don’t let this set up a plot line where Roger gets tortured or abused extensively.  Leave that crap back with Black Jack.

This season is losing me.  I find Brianna boring as hell.  The character is not interesting and the actress is abysmal.  I wish she’d go back through the stones and never come back.  For the product of two passionate and charismatic parents, Brianna is a dud.  I’d rather hear more from Lizzie or Ian’s dog than suffer through more wooden and flatly delivered dialogue from Brianna.

If she keeps the baby (& I’m assuming she will, because... drah-ma) knowing it cannot be Roger’s, and Roger manages to resurface, I don’t see him being open minded to the scenario.  He is very conservative in his views, so even though the baby is a result of a rape, I don’t know if Roger could raise another man’s child. Especially when he discovers who the baby-daddy is.  But Frank was able to overcome that, so maybe Roger can.

But the baby could be Roger's.  They had sex right before the rape.

Claire asked how certain Brianna was that the baby was or was not Roger’s, to which Brianna insinuated he used “the pull out method” (as Claire put it) so it’s less likely to be his.

To be fair MTV has an intire franchise based on stupid teenagers that think the pull out meathod is a thing. So it's still possible  that the father can be anyone. 

Lmfaoooo, I was just about to write that!!!! I'm a closet devotee of Teen Mom and 16&Pregnant and I'd be retired if I had a dollar for every time one of those idiots said "But he pulled out! We were being careful!!!".

Even though there's a chance the baby could be Roger's, I'm leaning toward Bonnet as being the father. If for no other reason than what BusyOctober just mentioned: it creates a parallel to the Claire/Jamie/Frank theme of a man taking on a child he knows isn't his. Given what a jerk Roger can be, I'm not entirely certain he'll be okay with that arrangement. 

As much as Claire gets on my nerves at times, I truly felt for her when she realized what she and Jamie set into motion by saving Bonnet. Of course there's no way she could've predicted the rape, but I wonder if this will make them hesitant to interfere in the future.

Unless they refuse to interact with anyone but each other, their actions will have unpredictable consequences (and that goes for everyone, not just them). You can't live your life afraid to say or do anything because it MIGHT affect someone else. I still think that Claire and Jamie should consider how their actions an affect others (you know, like letting George Washington take the blame for something that Jamie did) but that in their day to day lives, they can't constantly second guess what might happen because they do X, Y, Z. Helping Bonnet escape wasn't something that Jamie was eager to do but it was done out of kindness and sympathy.

I'm having the weird sense that this might be one of the first shows where the actors playing father and daughter start dating behind the scenes.

From my perspective, the actress playing Brianna has a lot more chemistry with Sam Heughan than Caitriona Balfe does.

It's weird watching them together because Sam doesn't look that much older than Sophie. They really need to start aging Jamie's character. I know the fangirls won't be happy, but at least glue some gray hairs into that monstrosity of a wig.

I thought there was also an element of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” when it came to Bonnet, which a very dangerous sentiment.

There is a few greys in the sides! 

Plus Jamie is only what 25 years older than Bri, not 40 like some dads nowadays.

I had all the feels ! Sam did an amazing job of “daddy” Jamie. This was his episode. 

I was worried as soon as I saw that Jamie was going to confront Roger- that beating was excessive- but not surprising from overprotective Jamie with rape as a trigger.

They will indeed have to add aging as the years go by which is probably why they haven’t done much yet.

That monstrosity (PERFECT DESCRIPTION!) also covers up the "furrowing" the make-up people added to age Jamie up. You can see some when Sam is in the sun, but not much. Maybe he's just the 17th Century version of Ralph Macchio/Dick Clark?

Not that it matters, but I think they broke up.  And I sensed no sexual chemistry between Sam Heughan and Sophie Skelton.  In person, in interviews and things, Sam & Caitriona Balfe have crazy chemistry.  So do Sophie & Richard Rankin, which makes it weird that they don't have great show chemistry.

I went to the Outlander convention in NJ this summer.  Sophie and Richard were brought it when Sam and Cait cancelled, so I got to see them together during their Q&A sessions.   They DO have chemistry; in fact they remind me a lot of how Sam and Cait were during in the beginning when they were doing PR for the show.  Very, very flirty.   Richard is adorable and such a hoot.

Not having experience in traveling through time, within that context, and I think the show is severely missing out on its full potential for not considering it, I do think Claire bears responsibility for her actions. She nearly immediately told Jamie about what was coming, and they spent the first 2 seasons trying to change it. I don't actually blame her per se, and it's not on Jamie since it's his actual life. But to not be cognizant of this I think is selfish, but consistent with Claire's character. Yeah Bonnet would still be who he is, but maybe after the events at Riverrun, the slaves were treated even worse. Maybe the aunt lost some money on her produce because the other slaveowners wanted to stick it to her. Jamie throwing Washington under the bus is a huge deal because he was told by Claire who Washington was.

Really though. I was like, 'oh come on'. Not that they're weren't raping pirates, but it was just so derivative. I have zero interest in the books, but I just can't see how they're so popular.

My first watch involved a large group of people & I thought you might be amused by some of the comments: 

Bff was sure Jamie would kill Bonnet by episode end. ( As soon as we saw Lizzie tell Ian about Roger & go get Jamie we were all gasping that hopefully he wouldn’t kill Roger mistakenly). 

Bff, my hubby & I agreed it was the best episode of the season.

Bff’s hubby ( who watches sometimes) was a pain in the ass with Back to the Future jokes throughout!

GF#2  ( nonwatcher) knows we love Jamie but doesn’t understand why because of his hair - she went on & on about it - she should join your burn the wig club! She was disappointed he wasn’t shirtless! She hates violence so as soon as we saw Jamie charging up to Roger, we told her to leave the room- thank goodness for that! 

GF#2’s hubby was confused that we should be teary  eyed during 1/2 the episode! ( Some tears escaped during Jamie & Bree’s bee hunt).

 

I got to rewatch tonight! I smiled, & laughed & cried. Sam was brilliant, as were Sophie & Cait. Well done. 

One complaint: Jamie & Claire could have been more of their lovey dovey selves in front of Bree, because she said she knew why her mom came back, but I wanted her to see how affectionate they are but this episode fell short there.

Okay, this!!! I was saying "Please don't touch her face... please don't touch her face. Oh no, he's touching her face. Nooo, he's touching her face again. For goodness sake, stop touching her face Jaime. We all know where your hands have been. Ewww!"

I'm not sure why Jaime needed to be relieving himself for his first meeting with Brianna.  He could have been working on his horse or something.

This was a well-done episode, well, right up to the comedy-of-errors-and-withholding-of-information-leading-to-the-biggest-misunderstanding-ever!  Well, at least they could break out the gore factor again with Jaime punching Roger's face since this episode was lacking in rape, surgery or murder.

The meeting between Jaime and Brianna was well done, as well as the reunion with Claire.  There were some nice conversations on Jaime and Brianna's bee-hunting trip, and I'm so glad Brianna told Claire, and Claire found the ring.  Ian, Murtaugh, Claire and Jaime and Brianna together as a family is rather nice.

I've been enjoying seeing different aspects of pioneer life, but I think I'll be ready for the cabin to burn down by the end of the season so we can "travel" somewhere else, LOL.
