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.

Outlander throws “The Hail Mary” in the penultimate episode of the season

On last week’s installment of Outlander, two characters who deserved to die were killed off. I’m sure no tears were shed for the loss of the Duke of Sandringham or his servant. Both were instrumental to the Paris alley attack, but Murtagh and Mary saw them both to a fitting end. Did anyone else die this week?

Last week’s episode of Outlander was slow going, with an hour devoted to training seemingly untrainable men. While Jamie and Murtagh had their hands full with that job, Claire was troubled by memories and flashbacks of her time spent in World War II. Did the pace pick up in this latest installment?

Outlander Season 2 Marketing Shoot

On the last episode of “Outlander,” viewers witnessed two deaths. While it was satisfying to see the villainous Le Comte St. Germain succumb to poison, it was heartbreaking to see the Frasers lose their daughter Faith. Shattered by this event in their lives, Claire expresses a desire to leave Paris for Scotland. So what happened this week?

Outlander S02 E07: Faith

So, did Jack Randall die as a result of last week’s skirmish with Jamie? His boy bits were injured, so even if he lives anyway, he may be unable to father a child, still screwing up Frank’s future. The preview for this episode heard Mother Hildegarde tell Claire that something was between her and God. Could this be alluding to possible divorce and/or abortion, both topics frowned on by the church? Jamie broke his promise to his wife, and it looks like Claire is on the verge of losing the child. Maybe she wants to rid herself of Jamie and any tie to him. He did have her promise to go back to Frank should anything happen to him. This season started with a pregnant Claire reunited with Frank. Was this foreshadowing? Was anything resolved this week on “Outlander“?
