The approaching storm of the Revolutionary War is intensified in this week’s Outlander episode. Claire and Brianna’s future knowledge can be used by Jamie to join the colonial uprising. Malva’s eavesdropping and invasive actions may lead to a domestic conflict on the Ridge as she rises to blackmail. Ebohon Green is the first black director for Outlander, and she proves that she can handle both emotional and action-packed situations in this episode.
A lengthy flashback to Scotland opens each episode this season, as it has done for the entire run so far. It’s Bonnie Prince Charlie’s story this time, and how he retreated from battle after Culloden. Flora McDonald, a well-known Jacobite, helps him get away by pretending to be one of her travelling companions to see an ill relative in the United States. Flora drops her handbag, which a redcoat picks up at the end of this scene. Exactly what is she trying to conceal from a search?
Jamie returns to the present day and makes a business trip to Wilmington. There are concerns from the governor, however, that Jamie has the manpower to turn guns on royal forces. Inquire about Jamie’s true goals with Lord Grey. During this time, Jamie is able to disprove the governor’s assertions by speaking with Sons of Liberty officials. Jamie wants to attend their next meeting, despite the fact that spies are everywhere.

Uncle Jocasta is organising an event, and Flora MacDonald will be the star guest. Jamie also happens to be in town for that. By her new spouse and “attendant,” Mary, Jocasta is taken around the festivities. Claire treats Mary as if she were a friend, despite the fact that it is evident that she is in captivity. These scenes are all about Flora’s visit. It is Flora’s hope that the Scots in North Carolina will not risk losing all that they have worked so hard to create since the failed insurrection at Culloden. Flora is able to persuade many of the Scots in attendance despite the fact that her word comes too late for Jamie. In Jamie’s opinion, Jocasta has lost her grit in the face of conflict. As Claire points out, Flora MacDonald will be remembered in the future on biscuit tins as the defiant Highlander rather than as a Royalist. Claire
Claire delivers some hemp flower to Jocasta and Flora, who are both apprehensive about their upcoming speeches. Marijuana use in the 18th century was much more aristocratic. An additional gem from Flora’s necklace has been taken. Flora’s confession that she was never in love with Bonnie Prince Charlie throughout their talk makes it more interesting than her speech itself. Also, she confesses that his leadership abilities were lacking for long-term success. Claire’s flashback to Season 2 in Versailles, where she was forced to have sex with King Louis, comes flooding back when they talk about monarchy. Claire decides to numb the pain of the flashback by self-medicating. If Claire’s not coping, this is likely a storyline that will be revisited at some point in the season.
Meanwhile, out on the Ridge, Malva appears to be combining two different fights into one. Roger had already pledged to assist Mrs. McCallum and her son Aidan in building their cottage earlier in the season. To assist her adjust to her new life, he’s been working on the house and using his lay preacher abilities. A new rumour is circulating around town about how much time Roger spends by himself with Bree. A jealous streak could be emerging in Bree, but at first he dismisses it as the result of people being cruel or inconsiderate toward him. Is he going to take this suggestion into consideration?
Bree and the other women go on a stroll in the woods later in the episode to look for a suitable spot for a water wheel. The group comes across a strange mound of grass. Based on the artefacts and their placement, Marsali claims that it is a love spell. If Mrs. McCallum is still looking for a husband after hearing what Bree has seen in the woods, Roger will understand. Bree and Jemmy will have Roger’s full attention while he’s here. The second time around, Bree informs him, she’s expecting another child. Roger can’t wait to break the news to Mrs. McCallum that he can no longer assist her.
The new bell is being moved to the meeting house by Roger, Alan, and Tom Christie. Opening the door, Roger discovers Malva and Mr. Henderson in a semi-naked state, evidently on the verge of having sex. From spying on Claire and Jamie, Malva was able to work out how to accomplish it. As a result, she threatens Roger with telling anyone that Roger was kissing Mrs. McCallum rather than fixing the chimney if he speaks out. YIKES. In addition to helping Roger with the bell project, Mr. Henderson also agrees to go see Mrs. McCallum since he’s single. Although Roger is trying to be as gentle as possible, he knows that he can’t completely rely on Malva.
Things are getting hotter and hotter in Wilmington right now. A warning from Lord Grey tells Jamie that engaging with the Sons of Liberty is a surefire way to be arrested. Instead of inciting violence, Jamie decides to publicise where they’ll be holding their next covert gathering. Meanwhile, the printing company where Flora’s visit flyers were printed has been attacked. Because the fliers support the Royalists, colonists are not pleased. This is the first time Jamie has realised Jocasta is giving Fergus money to start a print business in New Bern to publish more of these divisive booklets, not to help Fergus heal and relive the good ol’ days. He defends the printer from the mob with tar and feathers. The riot choreography and staging in this sequence are so detailed that fans may want to watch it twice to get the whole picture.
Jamie gets outcast from the Sons of Liberty later on for assisting the printer. However, it was evident from their actions that they are fanatics who oppose free speech and the rights of the common man. Also, Jamie blames the Sons of Liberty for hitting the printer because he was simply carrying out his job. It’s worth noting historically that while some printers were outspoken about their political views, others were simply interested in getting the most money out of their expensive printing equipment. When Jamie is escorted out of the meeting, however, he warns the men that the British soldiers are on their way to arrest them. They sneak out the back when they hear commotion outside, a sure sign that Jamie isn’t telling the truth. The troops return to their barracks after a tranquil late night billiards session.
