Outlander - Wentworth Prison - Advanced Preview

In this episode, “Wentworth Prison,” Jamie meets up with Black Jack again while Claire devises a plan to rescue Jamie from prison.

Previously on Oulander, Claire and Jenny searched for Jamie and were later joined by Murtagh. Murtagh and Claire rode from town to town hoping to draw attention to themselves and bring Jamie to them. Claire learns from Dougal that Jamie was arrested and taken to Wentworth Prison where he has been sentenced to hang. Claire planned to rescue Jamie with the help of some of the Mackenzie men.

Claire poses as a charitable English woman when has a meeting with Sir Fletcher Gordon. She requests to see Jamie as an act of kindness to take along a letter from him to his family. Sir Fletcher denies her request to see Jamie for her own safety and instead passes along Jamie’s personal effects. Claire has to find another way to get inside to get to Jamie.

Black Jack Randall appears at Wentworth Prison just as the noose is put around Jamie’s neck. He stays the execution and has Jamie removed to a prison cell. When he joins Jamie later, he offers him a deal. He can’t prevent Jamie’s eventual death, but he can let Jamie choose a more honorable way than hanging. Jamie remains steadfast in his rejection of Black Jack’s offer.

Simply, this is a very difficult episode to watch. It is the darkest episode since Claire’s run in with Black Jack earlier in the season, and honestly the darkest one. This whole season has been building to this moment when Black Jack and Jamie are together again. I was dreading this episode as much as I was anticipating the wedding episode. And like the wedding episode, this episode was everything I expected and more.

Props most definitely go to the actors who have done such a splendid job with a difficult topic. This show has a way of drawing you in and making you really feel for these characters. I was captivated despite cringing a lot during this episode. I wanted Claire to rescue Jamie. I want them to have their happily ever after because I could feel how deeply they really love one another. Toby Menzies is absolutely brilliant as Black Jack and plays the twisted villain so well. Sam Heughan is equally brilliant. Many times I wanted to cry for Jamie. He is so proud, and despite his circumstances he never appears weak. Black Jack and Jamie are definitely well-matched adversaries.

I can’t believe there is only one episode left this season. This second half has really flown by in the blink of an eye.

Make sure you tune into this very intense episode tonight at 9PM on Starz.
