    It all feels very Greek tragedy with the webs and spinners. 
    Claire is contemplative, hesitant, and pushed to discover how important a single patient was to her finding her way back to Jamie. 
    Jamie, as ever, a man of honor, duty, and blood defends his family from incursion, exposure, and takes a life.
    Roger's insecurities get the upper hand yet again before he is wisely counseled by Claire and the picture comes into clearer view for him moving forward.
    Brianna's own webs of deceit unravel and she is exposed to Roger before they can make peace and work together. 
    And for now and forever because of his introduction, Adso will be known as "Murder Kitty".

    From the Beardsley's to Brownsville

    From the Beardsley's to Brownsville

    In this podcast episode I discuss both 503 Free Will and 504 Company We Keep.
    Roger is having incredible growing pains in the 18th century both in his relationship with Jamie and in his feelings of adequacy and fitting in.
    Brianna is processing through her trauma and assault even more deeply now that she's learned Stephen Bonnet is alive. Her fear is causing her to panic and not think clearly. In this, Marsali proves to be a friend.
    The Beardsley home and property are ill-kept with several secrets within. Jamie and Claire discover a shocking truth when they try to free the Beardsley brothers from their indenture. In the end, they leave with the proper papers, a herd of goats, and a wee bonnie bundle. 
    Brownsville is rife with conflict, sorrow, adultery, an interesting broadsheet, and merriment. 
    Claire and Jamie make a profound decision that draws them closer together.
    And as ever, love, foolish or wise, wins.

    On This Day

    On This Day

    Season 5 Episode 1
    "The Fiery Cross"
    Written for Television by Matthew B. Roberts
    Directed by Stephen Woolfenden
    The people of Fraser's Ridge, friends, and family gathered to celebrate the wedding of Roger MacKenzie and Brianna Ellen Randall Fraser. The big house was almost complete. Memories were shared and made, drinking games, feasting, dancing, romance, threat, treachery, bonding, politics, oaths, and a release of oath all happened in the two days lived onscreen.
    Season 5 Episode 1 is the strongest opening episode only behind Season 1 Episode 1.  It was written with the deft hand of Mattew B. Roberts leading the writers' room. It inhabited the spirit of the written word and achieved an adaptation that stood beautifully on its own with well-crafted storytelling that requires no external explanation. 
    From storyline references, character development, foreshadowing, costuming, hair, acting, music, variations of emotion and tone, all the way to the set design, no elements are left wanting. 
    This season is looking to be a spectacular ride.

This is my favorite Outlander related podcast. I look forward each week to each new episode. I think of Desire as a friend! I sure miss these podcasts and look forward to Desiree's return!

Love the vibes, but the mouth noises keep it from 5

Funny, chili, great and interesting commentary. But dang...the sipping, ice movement, and ICE CHEWING was a hard pass. Eliminate that and its a perfect 5 stars!
