Outlander’s – By the Pricking of My Thumbs is slated to air on April 11, 2015 on the Starz channel at 9pm EST.
Synopsis: Jamie hopes the Duke of Sandringham can help remove the price on his head.
Lawwwwd what an opening this episode had. Nothing like getting us all hot and bothered right from the get go.
Jamie was all like…
Then I was all like…
And then Murtagh had to ruin the whole thing!
And Jamie has to go down…oops did I say go down, oh I think he just finished that but anyways he has to go to talk with Ned about getting the price of his head. Price or no that’s one fine physique you got there Mr. Heughan.
So while Jamie is sorting things out with Ned and Murtagh , Claire got her own business to attend to with who else but Miss Laoghaire.
Claire be all like don’t mess with me or my man.
Laoghaire is like whatever, he was mine first and he’s gonna be mine again.
Then Claire gives it to her straight up! Take that you bitch!
Poor Laoghaire now what you gotta say for yourself. How about you take your 16 year old bratty self off to the corner to sulk.
Score 1 for Claire!
Now it’s time for Claire to confront Geillis about selling the ill-wish to Laoghaire so off she goes to pay Gellie a “pleasure” call but she’s not home. So Gellie’s maid, Jenny tells her to look for her out in the woods just before dawn. When Claire gets there what does she see some freaking ritual of some sort and a baby bump!
Then secrets are told about said baby bump and who’s the baby daddy, none other than Dougal MacKenzie!
Then while walking back home they hear some crying coming from a near by fairy hill. Of course Claire has to go investigate even though Geillis has warned her not to go. By the time Claire gets there the baby is dead 🙁
Jamie comes to find Claire with the baby in her arms and tells her leave it. Claire just doesn’t get all the mystical things that the highlanders believe in and you’d think since she fell through those freaking stones she’s know something was amiss.
Meanwhile Ned’s got the complaint papers ready for Jamie & Claire to sign. Claire’s not to sure about this but with Jamie’s instance she’s signs like a good wife.
Later Claire goes off to meet with the Duke of Sandringham and let’s him know that all his secrets are not that well kept. He’s not one to put up with such nonsense and tells Claire she better mind herself or she might not have a neck to put a scarf on.
She gets back to the Castle only to find out Maura, Dougal’s wife has suddenly died and Dougal is all throwing a drunken hissy fit.
So she and Angus knock his ass out with some potion and Colum is pissed off at the sodden fool! I’m sure he’ll deal with Dougal foolishness later once he’s sobered up.
Back at the open veggie market Claire runs into none other than the witch, Geillis who I might add is all shits and giggles over the death of Dougal’s wife.
Now all she has to do is get rid of Arthur the farter and they’re free to shag legally.
Cut to the Duke’s place where the McDonalds are leaving and Jamie and Murtagh are arriving to discuss getting the price off Jamie’s pretty little head. Oh what a yummy head it is to.
But of course it’s a I’ll scrub your back and you’ll scrub mine in return kinda deal. I think the Duke would like to scrub something else of Jamie’s too. So Jamie’s gotta help the Duke with this issue with the MacDonald Clan and be his second in a duel.
But before we go killing folk lets party at the castle only this party is full of political goings on and back stabbing. Claire’s not holding out on putting the Duke in his place about involving Jamie in his little schemes.
Then Geillis strikes again and poor Arthur the farter falls over stone dead and everyone just stands there like it happens at all their dinners. Five minutes later Geillis realizes she better put on a show for the group.
Oh Geillis you’re such a fake but you’re not fooling anyone especially Colum.
Next day Jamie’s gotta do his duty for the Duke. Which if you ask me is a joke. What the hell does he need a second for a fake duel anyway. They might as well have thrown the pistols at each other.
The MacDonalds don’t like the way this duel went down and start dissing the Duke & Jamie when it comes to blows.
Of course Jamie ends up with more cuts for Claire to fix up and she’s none too happy about it either and Jamie’s feeling it.
Oh no now it’s time to pay the piper Dougal. Colum’s pissed off at your carrying on with Geillis.
He sends Dougal off with Jamie & the boys.
Jamie’s upset that he has to leave Claire behind. But that goodbye kiss is one for the books.
He tells her to stear clear of that temptress Geillis and her wicked goings on. But does she…Hell NO the first little note she gets from her she goes running to her like a puppy and of course it ends badly. Wardens come and take both their asses off to the thieves hole.
But who should be watching this whole thing go down freaking LegWhore.
Yes she did. She sure has big balls for a 16 year old. I think her day is coming though. One can only hope.
Until next Saturday!
