Outlander: Freedom & Whisky and Decisions Made

Synopsis: As Brianna grapples with the life-changing revelations of the past summer, Claire must help her come to terms with the fact that she is truly her father’s daughter – her 18th century Highlander father. To complicate matters further, Roger brings news that forces Claire and Brianna to face an impossible choice.

This episode focused on the Jamie’s beloved women. Claire and Brianna.

After finding out the truth about who her Birth father is, Brianna is in a downward spiral. She withdraws from Harvard and tells her Mom that she is out and in dire need of a break.

Bri is struggling. trying to wrap her head around that she has two fathers. One, who raised her. The other lost in time and in history. Luckily for her, Roger comes to Boston for a chance of an American Christmas.

“I’m a historian. I pursue, it’s what I do. I’m like a dog with a bone.”

There are other reasons, of course, for his visit.

Brianna and he has found Jaime.

This little bit of news is heartbreaking. She is a Mother who does not want to abandon her daughter. She has created a life for herself in Boston. She has friends in Boston. It takes a lot of her to make that decision to go back.

But, it was a discussion with Brianna that propels her to do it.

That discussion and that final decision is the reason what the show is so good.

As Claire heads back in to the past, Brianna is not left alone. She has Roger, but will this be enough? When Roger speaks of how he learned of his father and how it made him him. Will this make Bri want to step through the stones to find and meet her parents in the past?

There were two highlights for me in this episode. The talk between Joe and Claire. This is why you need a true friend in your life. Joe knew all along that Frank and Claire’s relationship was a sham and when he learns that Bri’s father is someone else, he tells her to go after her second chance of love.

The other highlight was that moment when Jamie saw Claire in his print shop. He goes into shock and faints. It made me laugh, but I understood. To continue to live a life being in love with someone you swore you would never see again and then to see them…overwhelming.

Now…it is time to get to know one another again.

A Malcolm – After decades apart, Jaime and Claire finally reunite and rekindle their emotional and physical bonds. But Jamie’s new business dealings jeopardize the couple’s hopes for a simple life together.
