Outlander is back tonight, and this time the threat is not Black Jack Randall. At least not directly.
Claire (Caitriona Balfe) squares off against to very different rivals tonight: The Duke of Sandringham (Simon Callow) and Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek).
In the video below, Claire has a war of words with the Duke of Sandringham, the highest ranking English noble in the area. She wants him to clear Jamie’s name, and to get him a pardon for a murder that he didn’t commit, but is accused of nonetheless. The question is whether or not Claire has enough leverage to pull this off with the Duke. The last time she tried to use her 20th century knowledge regarding the Duke, it nearly got her killed by Black Jack Randall.
In this next video, Geillis Duncan tries to explain to Claire the danger in retrieving a child left in the woods. Although Claire doesn’t believe in changelings and the magic of fairies, it’s clear that other do. Disturbing local custom and superstition is a very dangerous game for a sassenach to play.
We also interviewed Lotte Verbeek about how Geillis sees Claire. Is she more of a friend, or more of a threat? You can definitely see the dual relationship that the to have. It’s a bit of cat and mouse, but who is the cat and who is the mouse?
