Tempers are boiling

110107

While Prince Charles – who’s now in Scotland – presides over arguments between his commanders as to their engagement with the enemy at Prestonpans, there’s equal dissent between Jamie’s men and those of his uncle Dougal – and Angus in particular is quick to rouse to anger…

3

Daring Dougal

110108

Jamie may not approve of Dougal’s attitude – basically, kill all the British – but can’t deny his bravery, as he sends him out on a dangerous mission.

4

Preparations are made for battle

110104

And Claire proves herself an able administrator: she’s all brisk and no-nonsense as she sets up a field hospital – although she shouldn’t expect much help from a muttering Fergus.

5

Nice knees!

110115

Murtagh and Jamie debate the value of the campaign – and Jamie shows us his knees again (he’s been doing this quite a bit lately). He’s obviously happier in a kilt than those fancy French silks…

6

Battle commences

110110

The fighting can’t be put off for ever, so Claire wishes her men off fondly. She knows what’s supposed to happen at Prestonpans, but will it turn out as the history books say?

7

Does Prince Charles spell trouble?

110109

War is a murky (and very misty) business, but surprisingly, Prince Charles wants to be in the thick of the action. Is this wise?

8

Fergus gets a nasty shock

110113

The French youngster isn’t a happy boy, having got more than he bargained for in his enthusiasm to follow the fight.

9

Can Dougal be trusted on the battlefield?

110111

The war chieftain of Clan Mackenzie shows his true nature and his blood-lust is not a pretty sight…

10

What’s so funny?

110105

In an episode that’s resolutely on a war footing, one moment of lightness, when Claire demands a sample from Jamie: a genuine p***ing contest ensues.

11

A born leader

110116

Jamie shows his inventiveness, kills two birds with one stone and demonstrates his leadership qualities when Charles turns on Dougal.
