On last week’s episode of Outlander, we saw Claire start medical school while Jamie devised a plan to be turned in to the British by his sister so that her family might benefit from the reward. I felt sorry for Frank, still trying to make a marriage with a woman who seems to reject him. Please note that the following contains spoilers if you haven’t seen the latest episode.

Outlander S03 E01: The Battle Joined

 

Outlander Season 3

It seems like an eternity since we last saw a new episode of Outlander. Was the start of the third season worth the wait? The following contains spoilers, if you haven’t watched the episode yet.

The show opens with a gruesome landscape, the bodies of soldiers who didn’t survive the Battle of Culloden, strewn about the battlefield. Jamie Fraser lies seriously wounded atop a pile of fallen brothers. In his haze, he witnesses redcoats relieve bodies of any weapons that they find. Soldiers found still alive are killed, and Jamie lies still to avoid detection. He has flashbacks to the battle. We see Murtaugh (how I’ve missed his wit)! We also see Jamie wage a personal battle with Jack Randall, and it appears that Jamie cuts him down, as the body on top of Jamie seems to be Randall’s. Jamie thinks he sees Claire walking toward him as the snow falls, but it’s a fellow Scot who removes him from the pile of the dead to safety. We see a dragonfly in amber on the ground.

Claire and Frank seem to be faring better than Jamie. The year is 1948 and they are in Boston because Frank has taken a job at Harvard. They are checking out a home that they will buy to accommodate their growing family. (Claire is pregnant with Jamie’s child). It appears they are trying to resume their lives, but when a busybody tells Claire that she won’t find a man like Frank again, we can see in Claire’s face that she is thinking of Jamie.

True Crime Corner: Lizzie Borden

rsz_lizzie_borden

Did you know that this year marks the 125th anniversary of the slayings of Abby and Andrew Borden, killed in their Fall River, Massachusetts home? Lizzie Borden was acquitted of the murders of her father and stepmother, but some people question her innocence all these years later, and have their own theories on what happened. Since I recently visited the scene of the crime (now a bed and breakfast), I thought I would write this edition of True Crime Corner (at least part of it anyway) from there. And if you’ve never been there, go visit, I recommend it!

Loretta Sisco on Alice Cooper’s Paranormal

album

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge Alice Cooper fan, from the time I raided my big brother’s room and absconded with his Alice Cooper Goes to Hell vinyl many years ago. My little Radio Shack turntable was never the same, and I loved its ability to stack multiple records for continuous listening, which was useful when I pillaged my brother’s collection for more Alice Cooper albums. Would his latest record make the stack if I still owned that beloved stereo?

True Crime Corner: Jonestown

Sometimes things happen which both fascinate and terrify. While I heard about the horror that took place at Jonestown, it wasn’t until I listened to the heart wrenching audio recording of the tragedy did I really look into the events of November 18, 1978. In this edition of True Crime Corner – what befell the congregants of the Peoples Temple, led by the charismatic pastor Jim Jones?

True Crime Corner: David Berkowitz

sos

When people get called out for doing something that they shouldn’t be doing, sometimes they use the excuse that the devil made them do it. However, one New York serial killer claimed that a dog had something to do with his criminal actions. This week on True Crime Corner, who was the Son of Sam?
