It's a considerably more sombre episode than we've seen to date. We leave Castle Leoch for the chilly beauty of the Highlands as Claire joins Dougal, Jamie and co (plus Bill Paterson, who joins the cast as the clan's lawyer) on a tour of MacKenzie lands. Ostensibly, they're collecting rent from tenants, but Claire recalls enough of her history (cue some handy flash-forwards to the 1940s and a lesson from husband Frank) to realise what they're really doing: seeing what the British Army redcoats are capable of is a real shock, and for the first time we heard the dread word “Culloden”.
Still, there's a bit of time for distraction; as well as the gorgeous scenery, there are bar fights that Claire has to patch up, and a light touch of flirtation. But the English threat is never that far away.
Claire goes out with Dougal as he collects rent from the tenants, and to her horror, he uses Jamie's scars to gain sympathy for the Jacobite cause. Meanwhile, the nurse realises that a key moment in Scottish history is fast approaching. Period drama, starring Caitriona Balfe, Graham McTavish and Sam Heughan.
