Jamie and Claire are reunited after spending the primary half of the season separated by 200 years and an ocean.
Spoiler warning: This put up accommodates spoilers for Outlander Season three Episode 13.
Effectively, that was A LOT.
Homicide. Ritual sacrifice. Extra homicide. A hurricane. A shipwreck.
The place does all of it finish?! (Georgia, apparently.)
Outlander Season three had a dizzying quantity of floor to cowl from Diana Gabaldon’s 870-page e-book Voyager. And at occasions, together with the season finale, it confirmed.
Episode 13 “Eye of the Storm” started at a break-neck tempo as Claire (Caitriona Balfe) barreled in the direction of a show-down with Geillis, who Lotte Verbeek has remodeled right into a deliciously evil villain during the last two episodes. A lot in order that we’ll be unhappy to lose her. Blood baths for pores and skin rejuvenation? Someone inform Madonna or Gwyneth Paltrow about that Frankensteinien magnificence tip, we’ll have vegan choices by the top of the vacation shopping for season.
After an ominous water scene that we’ll get again to later, Claire wastes no time stalking the perimeter and slave quarters of her frienemy Geillis’s home, trying to find younger Ian. She is, after all, caught, and compelled to faux that she was really there for the precise causes after Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) seize. It is a lie that Geillis virtually invented and may see straight by way of. Although it is good to see the 2 again collectively, Geillis’s new, darker aspect is unattainable to disregard, irrespective of how a lot we might desire them to be traveler sisters like the great occasions of Season 1 when all that was at stake was, nicely, burning on the stake.
The awkward alternate offers Geillis with extra information than she anticipated, together with the reply to Margaret’s prophetic riddle. A 200-year-old child? Seems, not such a loopy concept on a present about time journey.
However the menace to Brianna has barely sunken in by the point Claire and Jamie observe Geillis to the Abandawe cave under a Jamaican set of standing stones. Positive, they had been delayed by that Caribbean dance circle and one other studying (or possession?) by Margaret (and her brother’s dying?). But, issues shortly got here to a head, and Geillis almost loses hers in one of many extra unexpectedly brutal scenes of the sequence.
RIP Geillis, although who is aware of if that is really the top.
Once more, the lovers (plus younger Ian) haven’t any time to waste after Claire almost decapitates Geillis, they usually rush off to board the Artemis and journey again to Scotland. An on-board intercourse scene is the one second of respite this episode, and it does not final lengthy.
The Artemis is quickly headed straight into the attention of a storm, and Claire can not help herself however to disobey the suggestion of staying under deck, and she or he and Jamie are swept overboard. Cue the drowning scene from the opener.
How they survived the second aspect of the attention wall of a hurricane simply floating within the ocean we’ll by no means know. However they do, as a result of clearly, and wash up on the shores of what seems to be colonial Georgia. The great U. S. of A.
Let’s hope Claire can behave herself in colonial occasions.
