Outlander: Freedom & Whisky (Starz 8 Oct 2017, with Richard Rankin)

Published

on

In Freedom & Whisky Brianna is still struggling to come to terms with the fact that her father is in actual fact an 18th century Highlander. Meanwhile Roger has important news for the both of them.

It’s an episode that really pays dividends, a real slow burn with Roger bringing the news that Jamie is definitely still alive in his parralel timeline and running his own printing works giving Claire real food for thought. It’s actually Claire’s medical friend Joe Abernathy who makes up her mind for her.

There is a brilliant segueway as what we think will be Claire alighting from a 1968 taxi to find she is alighting from a hansom cab in the 1760’s. Finally after five episodes it’s the moment everyone has been waiting for – Claire seeing Jamie again. He is busy working in his shop, turns around at the sound of her voice and promptly faints.

One of the total delights about the series is it’s real depth, fans of the books will relish how closely the show parralels them but it’s the total immersion in the period and the attention to detail that makes it so special.

The episode title incidentally comes from a Rabbie Burns poem Claire was fond of quoting to Jamie. Roger sees it printed in an old pamphlet that was printed when Burns was still a bairn and puts two and two together.

Hazell Gets The Boot

In Hazell Gets The Boot Hazell finds himself more or less coerced into taking on a supposedly simple job for villain Dave Castle. His Bently has been stolen and he wants James to get it back for him. Hazell’s investigation leads him to a scrap yard where the car is being hidden. He gets more than he bargained for when two of the Connell gang ambush him and give him a thorough going over.

Meanwhile Hazell’s love life is also going through a troublesome patch. Patsy Flanagan is spending some time at his flat after having a dust up with her husband. Hazell is keen for the arrangement to be just a night or two of pleasure but Patsy is keen on a more permanent arrangement.
