Outlander (2016): S02E03 – Useful Occupations and Deceptions


Introduction

Outlander is an historical drama television series based on the ongoing novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon.

Developed by Ronald D. Moore, the show premiered on 09 August 2014, on Starz. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married former World War II military nurse in Scotland who, in 1945, finds herself transported back to 1743. There she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a member of Gabaldon’s fictionalised version of Clan Fraser of Lovat, and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite rising.

Outline

While Jamie continues to try and sour the financing of Prince Charles’s rebellion, Claire makes herself useful at L’Hôpital des Anges, a charity hospital run by the imperious Mother Hildegarde. Jamie meets a 10-year-old boy at a brothel, hires him to pick messages from pockets, adopts him, and names him Fergus. Claire and Jamie discover that Sandringham is helping Charles secure funds from English nobles, which Jamie hopes to thwart. Though spending time with Sandringham will surely reveal to Jamie that Randall is alive, Claire cannot bear to tell Jamie herself.
