La Dame Blanche has arrived, y’all!!!!
Episode 204 of Outlander was everything. We got Jamie’s emotions, Murtaugh’s wisecracks, some humor, some trauma, and some drama for yo’ mama. Let’s dive right in to this week’s Outlander Superlatives for “La Dame Blanche.’
Episode MVP – Jamie’s Muscles
Move over, Bruce Banner. Jamie Fraser is the new Incredible Hulk. Not once but twice in this episode does he swoop in and scoop up a lady in need, carrying her off as if she were as weightless as a kitten. (But we’ll put a pin in the kitten until a later season.) Between Claire with her baby bump and Mary Hawkins with her seventeen layers of dresses, our boy JAMMF definitely got his strength training in this week, pulling it off like this is the sort of thing he does on the regular. Of course, this is JAMMF. This is the sort of thing he does on the regular.
The Real Star of the Show – St. Germain’s Smolder
Dannnnnng that man can make a girl quiver in her 18th century boots! I would never want to be on his bad side, for several reasons, and right at the top of that list is his stony stare. Someone call Elsa from Frozen and tell her she’s not the only one who turns everything she looks at to ice.
Most Punchable – Bonnie Prince Charlie
Honestly, every time BPC hits the scene I want to punch him in the face. Every time he says “Mark me,” I really want to punch him in the face. This is the guy who is going to be responsible for wiping out the clans and highland culture all thanks to his bravado? This guy? Of course, that’s entirely the point and Andrew Gower is hitting home run after home run with his performance, but still. I want to punch him in the face. (I should note that I’ve never punched anyone before. But I have watched Warrior a lot.)
Best of all, we know that Claire feels the same way, because Claire canna keep her emotions concealed.
Best Hair Moment – Claire’s Curls
Claire and Jamie must be using the same products, because good lord their hair is looking fierce this season. I know this was a really emotional scene and all but I couldn’t stop thinking about the major #hairgoals.
Most Emmy-Worthy Performance – Jamie and His Feelings
When Jamie said that he felt like he was hiding under a blade of grass and Claire was his lean-to, I lost it. I just lost it. Give Sam Heughan all of the awards ever already. Please and thank you.
Best Fashion Moment – That Violet Cloak
This. Can we bring this look back? Can I just bust into work decked out in something like this? How can we make this happen? Please advise.
Best of Everything – Murtaugh and Fergus, Relationship Experts
Now that the long-running Loveline is off the air, there must be a market for a new talk show focusing on relationship advice. Who better to fill Dr. Drew’s shoes than disgruntled Murtaugh and Wee Fergus? Obviously Fergus would be the expert on women and Murtaugh would be the zany sidekick – the Adam Carolla, if you will.
Best Brazen Claire Moment – The Show Must Go On
Only Claire could get through a traumatic attack, tend to Mary Hawkins, stow her patient away upstairs and be like, “Time for a dinner party!” But a woman’s got to do what a woman’s got to do if she wants to save Scotland. Also, those pregnancy cravings are a killer and there’s no way she’d risk missing those delicious buttery potatoes.
Hottest Jamie – Caretaker Jamie
I have this ongoing fantasy of Jamie Fraser serving me tea in bed, listening to me talk and rubbing my belly. And here it is.
Damn you, Claire! You have all the luck! Aside from that attempted poisoning thing. Can’t win ‘em all, though, right?
What were the highlights of the episode for you? Are you hoping for more Bouton next week? Asking for a friend.
