105: "Rent" 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 below.

Quick Recap:
Claire goes on the road with the MacKenzie's to collect rents from the Clansmen who couldn't come to the Gathering. Claire witnesses what she believes is Dougal stealing money from Colum only to discover later that he is raise money for the Jacobite Rebellion. Claire feels compelled to tell them the futilitiy of the rebellion but can't do so without giving away what she is. On the trip tensions are high and Claire gets the impression the men hate her which is helped along by Angus's short temper. It isn't until some townsmen call her a whore and the boys defend her honor, much to her shock, that she starts to realize they didn't trust her but also didn't hate her. Claire begins feeling more of a comaraderie with them which is quickly sobered by Dougal's suspicions and an English patrol.

Sadly, not my favorite episode but then they can't all be the best. Still I loved the episode overall but it's at the bottom of my episode barrel.

  1. Overall impressions of the episode. Did you find it slow? What did you think of all the passage of time? Etc.

  2. How did you feel about Claire being excluded when the men were speaking in Gaelic?

  3. What did you think of the Wool Walking?

  4. What did you think of Angus in this episode?

  5. What were your impressions of the part where Claire wants to return the goat to the family? What about the Englishman who popped up?

  6. Dougal ripping Jamie's shirt off??? Go...

  7. Blood pudding... that is a lot of congealed animal blood you know.

  8. If you were in Claire shoes would you try to tell the MacKenzie's about the future of the Jacobite Uprising?

  9. Scene outside of Claire door with Jamie.... I know you want to swoon.

  10. What did you think of the fight in the tavern and the reason the men go into it?

  11. The ending! Do you think Claire will tell them she's an unwilling guest or not?

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.

I actually think I meant to take the events of these two episodes and smooth them out over two. But then I'm also thinking they could have added more stuff from surrounding episode timelines. Ugh. Oh well.

[Spoiler (click to open)]Gosh I hope so. I would love to see that part and I can't wait to see Dougal stand up for her. I'm really hoping she protects the Macs and Dougal knows it.

I loved it. The best aspect was Claire joining in. Shows her willingness to fit into the life.

[Spoiler (click to open)]Oh I know. I just didn't want to and a yet to the end of my speculation. Believe me when I tell you I know the books like the back of my hand.

I can't wait either. I'm freaked out that BJR is going to be in the next episode but also excited.

I'm so sad that we only have three episodes left. I'll probably be sobbing uncontrollably after the 16th episode.

Re: Comments - Part 1
Me too! Some of the end scenes in the book (I think you know what I mean) are the hardest for me when reading or listening. I'm actually dreading some of the future episodes... though I want them to pick back up in January. PLEASE!

Re: Comments - Part 1
Yes, I know the scenes you mean and they will indeed be hard to watch. I do hope Starz brings the show back in January. They did say "early 2015" and "early" had better mean January.

See I'm not sure about the Premium channels but typically for winter shows will start in January or wait until March. So let's keep hoping for Jan.
