‘Maybe we’ll all get to watch her slam her head into a five tonne slab of granite’ – Outlander Season 1 and 2

Firstly, let me apologise for being a day late with the post! My only excuse is that I have been so tired from binge watching Outlander – I just HAD to get it finished.
Yes, folks, you heard me correctly. I have been learning all about the Jacobite revolution! I have learnt a surprising amount about the Jacobites, and I actually wished it was taught in schools.
Now I can’t do this post without spoilers, so SPOILER ALERT!

 

Outlander-Claire-Frank-1-670x388

Claire and Frank Randall on their 2nd honeymoon to Scotland. – Outlander, Starz/Amazon Prime, 2014-Present

Outlander is a British-American adaptation of a series with the same name, based around a woman named Claire from the 1940’s who mysteriously travels back in time through the stone circle at Craigh na Dun. She’s on a 2nd honeymoon with her husband, Frank, getting to know him again after being separated during WWII. Travelling back in time obviously takes a huge toll on Claire, who has no idea where she is nor fits in at all – her clothes, her accent, her mannerisms all give away her 20th century-ness. Good thing that none of the men from the 18th century have any idea about that! They just think she’s a very weird woman.

 

 

 

Outlander 2014

Claire and Jamie, plus their ring (which I love!) They’re almost like star crossed lovers – Outlander, Starz/Amazon Prime, 2014-Present

Claire is forced to marry Jamie, to save herself from being handed over to the evil Black Jack Randall, a man who is an ancestor of Frank Randall, Claire’s 20th century husband. The only downside to her new marriage? She falls head over heels in love with Jamie. Which makes me happy, because I am ‘Team Jamie’!

 

Claire is tried as a witch, and Jamie (in an attempt to save her life) he tries to put her through the stones again. But she doesn’t go, because she loves Jamie more than she ever loved Frank. Their love spawns not one but two children, one whom unfortunately dies (as do lots of 18th century children) and one who is born in the 20th century, which sounds very confusing – you’ll just have to watch the 29 episodes and find out what on earth I’m on about!
