104: "The Gathering" Discussion Post  



As always, all book talk that doesn't pertain to the episodes we've seen is a SPOILER. Please use the SPOILER cut above.
First, I'd like to say, I see a reoccurring pattern that every episode is my new favorite. I have a feeling I'll have to go back and actually pick one for the first half of Season One but until then: this is my new favorite episode.

  1. Voice overs: I've heard some complaints in the Podcasts (links on sidebar) and I have to say while in the beginning I agreed that sometimes they did feel unnecessary (but I still loved them); they've gotten progressively better as the show goes on. This episode has Claire talking in her head and we are just privy to the thoughts in her head. Major brownie points. Loved it.

  2. The Oath-Taking and pledging fealty. So loved this in the books but I truly love how important it is in the 18th century (kind of sad something like this doesn't still exist, or do you think it does); and we get to hear Dougal proudly pledge his loyalty and then Jamie who's Oath is quite a bit different and clearly walks a political tight rope. King of men, I tell you.

  3. Continuing on with the Oath Jamie gave do you see the political upset and strain that was the driving force when Jamie took the punishment for Laoghaire. Do you think Dougal was trying to show Jamie his place even then?

  4. Claire's escape plan: Clearly not brilliant but at the same time was. I mean she used these children to plot her escape but when Jamie stops her we clearly see just how much of her thought process was very 20th century thinking rather than 18th century. Thoughts?

  5. The love potion and the nod to Wizard of Oz yet again. So adorable but what did you think about Claire going along with the love potion idea (this promotes the idea she's a witch, am I right?)?

  6. 3s. I don't know how many book fans have noticed the pairings of 3s in the books but this is (maybe) the first time we see it in the show. Claire needs 3 things to escape: distract her baby-sitters, a horse, and supplies. Am I wrong?

  7. Geillis Duncan. I think I've always seen her as a little odd and last episode she gave me the hi-bee-gibees but this episode I found her nosy and rude (are you pregnant? did you cheat? maybe you are barren? is your husband dead? is your husband dead? - 2 because she is pushy). What did you think of her?

  8. Geordie's death. JHRC! That was just brilliant. I mean the subtle way Dougal unties the pressure on his leg. Claire and Dougal working together. Go...


Other Note:

  1. Outlander is being compared to Game of Thrones a lot and I'm rather sick of it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy GoT but Outlander's only similarity is it is a show made from a book. Outlander is not heavy handed with the killing. And while both fit into fantasy they are just vastly different.

  2. Someone in a podcast notes Claire's anti-hunting attitude, but I felt she was against hunting for sport rather than hunting in general. Thoughts?

Noteworthy:
The AfterBuzz Outlander After Show is now up and you can click on the link on the sidebar (link section). Great talk about the show.

Also, I've added some other podcast links to the sidebar. They are all good. Outlander Cast & The Scot and the Sassenach both are spoiler free as they have a reader and a non-reader in each cast. Check them out.

Discussion posts will now be the "sticky" post of the week. The first episode of Outlander is still available but now you can click the link in the sidebar's link list to get to it.

catteo: [outlander]jamie|claire breaking the rulcatteo on September 2nd, 2014 06:40 am (UTC)
YAY! I have been waiting for this.

I totally understand your difficulty in choosing a favourite episode - this one was probably coming a very close second to 1x03 right up to the point that Jamie appeared. And then it just kept getting better. And then 'Je suis prest' happened and I nearly freaking died. Also, have you noticed how Sam Heughan appears to be able to look totally different from one minute to the next? Like, when he's in fighting mode he looks really fierce and worldly and then when he's all candle-lit he looks like he's 22 and fresh-faced. It's a skill.

1. I'm torn on the voiceovers this episode. I knew why there were there and I liked that they made it so clear that you were in Claire's head, but it seems as though some of them are a little redundant. I didn't mind them, but can see why some folks might be getting a little tired of them. I think maybe more of them this week than last? Also, I'm really torn on the music this week. I think that it helped listening to Ron's podcast and hearing that it was a decision to try and put the viewer in Claire's head. And I totally got that from the first 40s song that played until she found Geillis in her surgery, but I didn't like it over the hunting scene. It pulled me out of the moment. What did you think?

2. I adored the Oath taking. I thought that both Calum and Dougal knocked their bits out of the park. It was suddenly so clear why Dougal would have bowed down to Calum and I think that's explained so well in the book that it was awesome to see it demonstrated so brilliantly on screen. And Jamie was, as ever, fabulous. Although one of my flisties (non book reader) was still confused about the fact that Jamie had sworn an oath at all, so I'm wondering whether they made it as clear as I thought that they had.

3. I think that it was totally clear when Jamie took the beating for Laoghaire that Dougal was making it go on for longer than needed. He was putting Jamie in his place but, for me, it actually shows Dougal's naivety because, of course, everyone thinks wonderfully of Jamie because he took Laoghaire's place and I think that Dougal doesn't really get that.

4. The thing I love about Claire's attempts to escape are that she thinks it's going to be easy. She thinks it's just a matter of distracting a couple of people and she's home free. I think that a thing that the book did well was explaining why Calum wouldn't have left the castle undefended. I'm not sure that it was needed here, but it was a nice detail of history that I missed a little here. But it was great showing Jamie just being 100% reasonable. He's not saying that she can't do it, just pointing out the reasons why she might want to think again. I adored the hell out of that whole scene. IT WAS SO GREAT WITH THE LAUGHING AND THE CUTE SMILES AND THE BONDING OVER DRUNK DOUGAL.

5. Agreed. Although, interesting, the red shoes were apparently not supposed to be a WoO reference, but this definitely was. But I think it's an example of Claire's 20th century sass getting the better of her, because it really does sound like something a witch would do. I'm sure it's going to be used against her at some point.

6. I have no idea about 3s. Explain please!?

7. I think they're being waaaaaay more overt with Geillis than in the books. And I thought she was overly pushy, but perhaps it's not so obvious without the benefit of being spoiled? I think that it's clear that there's something off about her because her comments are so very pointed. [Spoiler (click to open)]And I'm sure that her thoughts go to pregnancy for reasons of her actually being pregnant herself at this stage.

8. Holy shit that scene was AMAZING. They sold it beautifully. You could see how hard Dougal was working to keep it together for Geordie. You could see with a single look Claire's empathy and understanding and the way that she used distraction on Geordie was awesome. I thought that the unspoken was so powerful. And then the way that it merged into Dougal just needing to beat the shit out of someone was so very human of him. Loved it.

Jill aka Jo: Outlander: Jamie & Claire circlesireesanwar on September 3rd, 2014 12:16 am (UTC)
YAY!

Yes, Sam is a rockstar. He's just so good and making us believe whatever emotion is supposed to be going on and it is very Jamie!

1. You know the only time I didn't noticed the 40s music was at the hunting scene which I find odd. Otherwise, I actually loved it. Especially when Geillis surprises her. It was almost like Claire was hearing the music in her head (I've been singing Outlander's Theme Song for 5 weeks now!) and suddenly it stops when Geillis is just there. OMG I would have pushed her into the fire!

As for the voice over I was a little annoyed in the first episode but have grown more comfortable with them. I loved this episodes because it was like you were Claire's confidant.

2. I agree. And I think it was clear... she must have missed when Murtagh was telling Claire that if Jamie didn't make an oath to Colum then Dougal would kill him... and if he made the same pledge as Dougal... same result.

Sometimes I think you have to watch a show twice to catch everything and just like the books, every time I watch and episode, I see or hear something new.

3. See and I think the opposite. I think Dougal got how favorably people would see him and took that opportunity to try to disgrace him by beating on him until he was on the ground... rather symbolic of bowing to the alpha.

4. I loved him laughing over Drunk Dougal getting bashed.

5. See I thought Terry said they were. Oh well. Doesn't matter... what matters is that things are pointing at Oz. LOL But one of the reason I loved that Claire uses the Oz reference is that movie has come out a couple years before the war and she may have gone to see it.

6. Okay some people and I was one, noticed while reading the books that Diana does things in 3s... check out the tag
http://outlander-watch.livejournal.com/tag/topic%3A%20threes

7. [Spoiler (click to open)]There is that and Geillis had some weird fascination with Jamie's offspring. She mention it in regards to the Jacobites in the hole later, and in Voyager. It also comes into play again in Moby with Brianna and that maniac. And there you go... it is in 3 books.

8. Oh that is exactly what I loved about it. Not only did we see all this emotion with Geordie but a very upset Dougal jumps into the Shinty game to take out his emotions brutally.
catteo: [outlander]jamie bloody herocatteo on September 3rd, 2014 08:47 am (UTC)
Having now watched the episode for the 3rd time I'm liking both the music and the voiceover more and more. Kudos to the show for making me somehow manage to watch every episode at least 4 times before the middle of the week. You're so right about not catching everything on the first viewing!

I agree with you that I think that Dougal's intention was to beat Jamie into submission but I don't think that he achieved his actual aim. If he's allowed Rupert to stop when he'd drawn blood then the point would have been made and everyone would have thought that each of them did what they needed to, but in my opinion, the moment that he made it about submission he lost respect in that room. But I get what you're saying!

Yeah, I thought that last week the implication was that the red shoes were a shout-out but in the podcast by her and Ron this week Terry definitely said that this was the first actual Wizard of Oz reference and that the red shoes weren't. I was confused too! Agreed that it's great that they're using what would have been current for Claire. I can see why DG thought that they were doing such an awesome job since she's such a historical accuracy junkie herself.

Love the 3s theory! Haven't got as far as MOBY yet so I'm glad that you weren't more specific there!

Shinty was awesome. I loved that sequence so much. SO much. I can't wait for next week although I'm really sad that we're a quarter of the way through the season already. Thank goodness they've been renewed already!

Jill aka Josireesanwar on September 5th, 2014 06:04 am (UTC)
Right. I've watched them so much and I started over to watch them all. It is so odd that you notice new things. Very much like the books.

I have to say that in the books, I like Dougal more. Not that I don't love Graham but the character of Dougal just seems different to me in the books.

So odd. Oh well maybe it was unintentional.

Oops. I forgot I put the MOBY one up. So glad I didn't get specific.

So true. I'm sad it is going to end at the end of the month and we have to wait but thankfully I'll have Downton Abbey to watch (more than likely) and a bunch of other stuff.
catteo: [outlander]claire secret smilecatteo on September 8th, 2014 05:56 am (UTC)
I agree with you that book Dougal seems like quite a different entity. I think that maybe there's an ability to get across more of Dougal's compassion in the books although I thought that they did well this week with making Dougal more true to book Dougal. But there's definitely more of an edge about him in the show I think.

I can't believe there's only another 2 episodes before hiatus!
Jill aka Jo: FF: Captain Speakingsireesanwar on September 8th, 2014 09:08 pm (UTC)
Exactly. I'm not sure I dislike the differences in Dougal because I think Book Dougal is just as complicated but I do think they seem like separate entities. Knowing what we know... I fear this episode is basically what is going to define Dougal and I hope not.

Me too. Although, I'm starting to like this idea of a break and then we can go over everything again and pick things apart and really flesh out some things.... maybe. LOL
catteo: [outlander]jamie look into the pastcatteo on September 9th, 2014 03:42 am (UTC)
I have rather complicated thoughts about the episode this week. I think that I need to watch it a couple more times before I'm prepared to come down on the side of loving it or not! But Dougal seems a lot, I dunno, maybe 'harder' than in the books.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on September 9th, 2014 05:51 pm (UTC)
I agree. I'm working on the discussion post but this one is hard.
firstlove02firstlove02 on September 22nd, 2014 05:51 am (UTC)
Sam's skill....
It's really amazing to watch him work. What is so great about him is the effortlessness of how he does things. Those Gaelic words just roll off his tongue. There is an innocence of youth about how he portrays Jaime, but at the same time, no question of his confidence without a shred of arrogance. That is hard to pull off, but Sam does it with ease. Besides, he wears a kilt impressively. *sigh*
Jill aka Jo: Outlander: Standing Stonessireesanwar on September 22nd, 2014 10:14 pm (UTC)
Re: Sam's skill....
LOL Yes, Sam's portrayal of Jamie is smooth and effortless. He really has embraced Jamie in a way that is very pleasing to the fans.

Part 2 - oops?
1a. Totally agreed being sick of the comparison. They're nothing alike at all. GoT is very much a sweeping epic and Outlander is just a beautiful human story. I think that it's just media trying to create buzz and it does seem as though as time progresses the show is being sold on its own merits. To be honest though, if it gets people watching then I'm not really that fussed!

2a. I actually didn't think that Claire's attitude was anti-hunting at all. I thought that she was just ridiculing the boys for being so heavily armed when all they were doing was hunting a pig. My interpretation was that she thought it was just dumb boys playing at being men (which was very 20th C of her) and she was still pissed about not escaping, and I thought it was a nice contrast to how dangerous it actually turned out to be. Another example of how dangerous it is for Claire not to acknowledge the dangers of the world she's living in.

No excuse needed to play 'name that Highlander'?! Do I get my own Jamie if I get it right? a.Dougal MacKenzie b.Old Alick c.Calum MacKenzie d.Angus Mhor e.James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser f.Rupert MacKenzie g.Murtagh Fitzgibbons Fraser

Sidenote: did you hear the first use of 'Fraser' during shinty?
Jill aka Jo: Outlander: Dougalsireesanwar on September 3rd, 2014 07:03 pm (UTC)
Re: Part 2 - oops?
Me too. Exactly.

Very nice. I agree. I didn't get the anti-hunting in total but I did think it could be anti-hunting just for sport but then she'd also be annoyed she couldn't escape and she really doesn't seem to be paying much heed to the dangers she faces.

Voice overs: I've heard some complaints in the Podcasts (links on sidebar) and I have to say while in the beginning I agreed that sometimes they did feel unnecessary (but I still loved them); they've gotten progressively better as the show goes on. This episode has Claire talking in her head and we are just privy to the thoughts in her head. Major brownie points. Loved it.


I've never minded the voice overs, but if Ron uses them in 107 in the love scenes, I'll be very pissed. Voice overs will not be necessary. *g*

The Oath-Taking and pledging fealty. So loved this in the books but I truly love how important it is in the 18th century (kind of sad something like this doesn't still exist, or do you think it does); and we get to hear Dougal proudly pledge his loyalty and then Jamie who's Oath is quite a bit different and clearly walks a political tight rope. King of men, I tell you.


I thought this scene (and Jamie getting dressed for it) was absolutely brilliant. The acting by Sam, Gary and Graham was spellbinding. Also, the set and costumes were gorgeous.

Continuing on with the Oath Jamie gave do you see the political upset and strain that was the driving force when Jamie took the punishment for Laoghaire? Do you think Dougal was trying to show Jamie his place even then?


Yes and yes.

Claire's escape plan: Clearly not brilliant but at the same time was. I mean she used these children to plot her escape but when Jamie stops her we clearly see just how much of her thought process was very 20th century thinking rather than 18th century. Thoughts?


I agree. I think she's transferring her 20th Century life experience onto an 18th Century situation and not realizing how difficult and dangerous trying to escape would be. I don't think she's taking the 18th Century life as seriously as she should be. That will change for sure in episode 106.

The love potion and the nod to Wizard of Oz yet again. So adorable but what did you think about Claire going along with the love potion idea (this promotes the idea she's a witch, am I right?)?


I see the point you're making, but I think Claire was just frantically trying to think of something she could do to get rid of Laoghaire at that moment.

3s. I don't know how many book fans have noticed the pairings of 3s in the books but this is (maybe) the first time we see it in the show. Claire needs 3 things to escape: distract her baby-sitters, a horse, and supplies. Am I wrong?


No, I wouldn't say you're wrong; I just never noticed things being in threes in any of the books.

Geillis Duncan. I think I've always seen her as a little odd and last episode she gave me the hi-bee-gibees but this episode I found her nosy and rude (are you pregnant? did you cheat? maybe you are barren? is your husband dead? is your husband dead? - 2 because she is pushy). What did you think of her?


I think the film is making Geillis much more in-your-face than she was in the book, but they kind of half to so what happens later will make sense to viewers who haven't read the book.

Geordie's death. JHRC! That was just brilliant. I mean the subtle way Dougal unties the pressure on his leg. Claire and Dougal working together. Go...


I thought this scene was pure brilliance...extremely well done.
Jill aka Jo: Hug: Stock drawing on fingerssireesanwar on September 5th, 2014 06:13 am (UTC)
That is very true!

I totally agree. She's not really getting into the mindset of 18th century life though I'm sure it is hard for her. Still you have to think about where you are now not where you can from... Claire!

That is true but again she's in the 18th century she really needs to be distancing herself from any talk of witchcraft.

I guess I don't understand the Geillis love. Even when I read the books... I didn't think she was Claire's friend. Just me.

Watcher perspective of episode
I truly feel very fortunate to be a Watcher at this point because it affords me two presents..... I get to see the TV show as something of a creation unto itself. Then, my second gift, is I get to add the layer of the books to complete my minds eye. I feel like it is a win/win for me. I have to be very careful of spoilers, so that is the bog I have to tread carefully.

This was my favorite episode at the time it aired thus far.

1. Voiceovers: I am really liking them. It feels like added bonus of the book influence that TV shows usually don't have. It is an book adaptation bonus at this point. I have decided that though Podcasts are great, the chance of spoilers are really high. So, I am not going to participate in those for now.

2. Those scenes where the whole cast is gathered for the oath taking was amazing by candle light. Thank goodness Murtagh was translating for Claire and the rest of us. The politics of the whole thing between the clans and just how succession works is very interesting. You know there is something going on there between Jaime and Dougal. Murtagh is a great character and I love his loyalty to Jaime. He is a sharp cookie that Murtagh. I think he and Jamie are really the only ones Claire can trust at this point. The Shinty playing was great. You get to see that Jaime and Dougal really have some unresolved issues.

3. This is clan vs clan power struggle. Jaime is seeking refuge in Leoch which they give him but he stands as a proud Fraser. I love how he dismissively tosses their broach aside. Yet, they are all Scots when the English are concerned. So, I find that quite interesting. Poor Loaghaire, she truly thought Jaime's acceptance of her punishment had something to do with any interest he had for her.

Re: Watcher perspective of episode
I bet. As a reader you know things and aren't at all surprised so you see the show differently. For instance BJR's attack on Claire. I wasn't at all surprised but TV fans were shocked. As a reader you miss the ups and downs but then we got those when reading the books so...

1. That is true. I'm listening to 3 that don't spoil things... well now that I said that AfterBuzz did but they also warned us they'd be doing book comparisons so you're supposed to stop listening at that point. Scot and the Sassenach is spoiler free because half of the Podcast hasn't read the books. It's pretty great too and they are generally just talking about the show. They do tell you if they are going to start comparisons to the book.

2. Oh Murtagh. I adore him... so much more in the show. He's so great and I loved him in the most recent episode. *sigh*

His loyalty to Jamie is the best part!

3. I did feel bad for Laoghaire in the show. And when Jamie send her off in the 2nd episode to return the glass. *facepalm* Poor thing!
firstlove02firstlove02 on September 22nd, 2014 04:47 am (UTC)
continued....
4. Claire's escape plan: A very Claire approach to a problem. Logical, methodical but flawed because she doesn't know how things work in the 18th Century tactics. Clearly, you see her frustration and desperation. I really felt for her in that moment when in a couple of sentences Jaime deflates her meticulous plan. Had she not tripped over him, the consequences to her would have been pretty bleak.

5. The Love Potion was really cute. I am sad for Loaghaire because her and Jamie is never going to happen. Claire is too self-absorbed in trying to get back to her own time to notice that Jaime only has eyes for her. I am glad she only told Loaghaire to spread manure at this door step. Interesting choice. I love the Wizard of Oz inclusion because it reminds Claire and the audience that she belongs in the 20th century. Though, the more time she spends amongst the everyday people she is getting more and more attached. Her comparison of the victory celebrations in Paris with the simple gathering of the clans shows her heart longs for family and kinship. All the things her 20th Century life don't hold for her. No child with Frank though they tried. No place to put that vase in the window she saw because they both had army careers. The fact she even mentions that a part of her regretted leaving Leoch is so telling of her unmet needs that 18th Century life may fulfill.

Re: continued....
4. Oh gosh, I don't want to even think what would have happened has she not tripped over Jamie... Colum would not forgive that I think.

Oh yes, Claire has a lack of knowledge here that I think pisses her off when Jamie tells her.

5. It is true. Claire is finding everything she wanted in the 20th century here in the 18th century. And I find that Claire seems to take to a 200 year time gap like the "modern" conveniences of the 40s don't exist.

6. You are right about the 3s. There is always interest in a grouping of three. For example, a love triangle is 3. A pair is great, but 3 adds interest. In décor, a grouping of 3 is always more interesting. I love it.

7. Geillis Duncan: I didn't like her from the moment she was introduced. She is creepy. I don't trust her. I think she is a spy for BJR or Dougal and she asks too many questions. I bet she would sell out Jaime if she knew the truth about him. She is up to something and not in a good way, her whole weird speech to Claire in her surgery about even though you are in a place you didn't think you would be you can make a life for yourself. Huh? Too strange, coupled with her long pauses after she says something and her stares at Claire. She drugs her husband at night so he won't accost her. I bet she has a few bodies buried in her basement as well. That would not shock me one bit. I hope Claire stays as far away from her as possible. She is NOT a friend at all.

8. That scene was so very heartbreaking. Do they regularly have those kinds of injuries hunting wild bore? I think this scene goes a long way to Dougal trusting Claire's judgment medically. He has respect for her and he clearly lets her know that at the end. It also shows that Dougal makes life or death choices very quickly and that he is a womanizer. Kind of a strange thing to talk about with your last breath don't you think? I am so glad he brings Claire along for the next episode because Jaime is going as well. We will get to see how they travel together. Yay!

Thanks for the answer key to the Highlander Challenge. I didn't get them all.

Re: continued.....
6. They are becoming more and more prevelant and I think in the hiatus we are going to do a scavenger hunt for them. They are everywhere.

7. Thank you! Me either. I mean I think Lotte is doing an amazing job but Geillis is creepy. A spy... hmmm. Good idea after all Dougal takes her to Geillis.

I would not be at all surprised to learn Geillis has done some nefarious deeds. She's just out there in my opinion.

8. Well it is a more harsh time period. And wild boar is quite dangerous.

Well, I took the "I tupped your sister" thing as a last request. Dougal wouldn't have told Geordie had he not been dying. This way the man can "rest easy."

You are welcome.
