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?

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 have yet to listen to the "official" podcast by Ron. I really need too.

Ron and Terry haven't done a podcast for ep. 105. I guess they've been too busy.

The Scot and the Sassenach is smart and there is a Scottish accent. That is always nice.

Yes, that is nice. I've tried a bunch of podcasts and my favorite by far is the two women who do one called "outlanderpod" on iTunes. They have very pleasant voices, their remarks are intelligent and they have BOTH read the books so can make comparisons. I like that a lot because as I mentioned before, I find it very annoying listening to people play guessing games about what's going to happen when they've read the books and KNOW what's coming.

Seems like all the podcasters floundered on this episode. They were all late in uploading. Oh well.

See I like listening to the people who haven't read the books. I want to see their surprise and their take on everything. To me that is the most fun I have with it.

See the podcasts that I've listened to where the ladies already know everything have been super boring. But then I don't think that is the same one you are talking about.

Intesting how we prefer different types of podcasts. Maybe I'll watch AfterBuzz after all for episode 106. I'm curious to see what they have to say about Black Jack.

It is. I just like getting their take on things. I was actually mad at Outlander Cast for episode 106 because they seemed to miss all the subtle interactions. Scot and Sassenach did a great job.
