A Day in the Gathering Ep 165
The Fiery Cross Week 1 Chapter 1 Before I begin the opening of TFC, I feel the need to address what we didn’t yet see in some form in S4 of the television show. Six chapters were not covered in the adapted material. And since Roger returned to River Run instead of the Ridge, they’ll be some changes to the order of things and surely some scenes will be omitted altogether. Jamie and Brianna’s reconciliation. Jamie bonding as a grandfather. Lord John returning to River Run and traveling with the group until he was to turn toward Virginia. Roger’s oath to the baby and claiming him as his own. Roger and Jamie accepting each other. Roger and Brianna hashing out their feelings and relationship while discovering who each other is now. Who doesn’t want to see Roger awkwardly stripping down the first time he is in Brianna’s intimate space while she breastfeeds the baby? Roger becoming acquainted with his baby. Claire and Jamie’s relationship advice to Roger. The big house being built. Jocasta getting engaged. Naming the baby. The beginning of the Gathering at Mt. Helicon. Days 1-4.  Update from Young Ian. Claire getting Frank's ring back.  Reuniting Lizzie with her dad. Jamie taking the baby gambling. Claire doctoring folks. The Highland Regiment Roger disclosing the contents of Frank’s letter to the Reverend to Jamie. Jamie making peace with Frank. Calling of the Clans How do you think the writers will fit it in? How do you think it will be adapted? What will end up being ignored? Chapter 1 Happy the Bride the Sun Shines On Setting: Mount Helicon, The Royal Colony of North Carolina, Late October 1770 Characters we see: Claire Frank Jamie Roger Brianna Marsali Fergus Germaine Jemmy 67th Highland Regiment Archibald Hayes Lizzie and her hormones. Duncan Innes The weather. Scenes: Claire converses with a ghost. Jamie dreams of becoming the King of Ireland. Roger and Brianna are to be officially married. Jamie doubts Roger’s abilities in the 18th. Governor Tryon’s letter. Jamie inviting people to breakfast. Germain's antics and family chaos.  Brianna’s diaper pin.

Man of Worth Ep 164
Season 4 Episode 413 Man of Worth Directed by: Stephen Woolfenden Written by: Toni Graphia   My initial thoughts are below, but you’ll need to listen to the podcast to get the details! Summary:  Roger remains imprisoned. Jamie and Claire arrive at the village but are turned away. River Run receives a guest. Brianna awaits the birth of her baby. Otter Tooth is revealed. Young Ian makes a decision. Jocasta gets some lovin’. Testosterone poisoning rears its head. Roger learns the truth. Roger reveals his experiences. A choice needs to be made. A baby is born. Uncle Murtagh enjoys the baby. Jamie and Claire return. The baby has no name. But is Bonnet dead? Roger returns. The British are coming. Tryon assigns Jamie a job. Things I am Pondering (in no particular order): Hey 1970’s Otter Tooth, how’d you bring the gemstone through the stones without it dissolving? Young Ian is quite decked out in tribal ware and language coming into the episode. Seriously?! They traveled for months, only to get turned away. Why did the Mohawk go roughly 700 miles to bury Otter Tooth’s head and the stone? Why would Murtagh, a fugitive, show up at River Run knowing Jocasta has many British friends? By the way, Murtagh has terrible manners. Where the heck is Lord John? Phaedre’s magical skills feeling the baby’s position through layers of clothing is, well, close to reality. Her technique was decent and well ahead of the times, but hands on a bare belly are needed to really feel for the baby's position. Would the Mohawk really have taken Otter Tooth’s head and g It’s a good thing Claire knows one word in Mohawk. Will the banished Mohawk woman end up at the Ridge? Jamie, Young Ian outwitted you, sir. He’s a man grown now choosing his own destiny. It’s gut-wrenchingly sad to see young Ian left behind. Who knew being told you were never liked and getting a drink in the face is foreplay? Smooth operator, “Remember where ye came from…” By the way, Murtagh is looking like a fine silver fox lying shirtless in bed. Jocasta is a saucy minx. Testosterone poisoning at its finest. That said, I truly enjoyed Roger’s fighter coming out on Jamie. Young Ian killed the gauntlet. Clever boy. Claire’s annoyed stance looks like any wife, sister, mother, waiting for the boys to stop it. I am curious why Claire did not look at Roger’s obviously injured arm after he stopped hitting Jamie. Roger, Roger, Roger! So many feels. Just so damn good. As he asks questions and the information he is given sinks in and as he shares what he knows, seems to deepen the loss and difficulty of the whole situation. Roger needs a minute! Jamie simmer down. Wait a minute. ROGER cost you a lad that you love? No. Claire did by wearing that damned gemstone of Otter Tooth. One of my fave moments, when Roger says, “What?!” with disdain to Jamie. A gorgeous laboring scene with Brianna being surrounded by women then cut to Brianna being introduced to her baby. What the absolute hell?! “We will choose his birth date wisely, but you can be sure the lad was born in wedlock.” So “Uncle” Murtagh has been hanging around River Run for several months. Interesting. Brianna’s sadness that Roger is not with her parents is tough to watch. But Murtagh do you really know Bonnet didn’t get out of the jail too? What’s the significance of that awkward dinner Brianna decides to show up at? An olive branch of forgiveness? Finally, Brianna’s love for Roger shows when she runs out the door and into his arms. Homerun that. The love is there and we can feel it. “Take me to see my son.” Roger’s looking pretty fine with his low cut 70’s open shirt. The snuggle between Jocasta and Murtagh has Jamie and Claire perplexed. Murtagh’s regulating ways have him in hot water. Ongoing thoughts: Did Roger stop at the standing stones on the way to River Run? Who’s tending to and settling the Ridge? One-handed Fergus with Marsali’s help and the one other tenant are not capable of doing it all these past many months. That storyline got dropped like a hot potato. Has Roger processed his trauma? Will Jamie fake Murtagh’s death by sending him to Canada or back to Scotland? When in Season 5 will we get to see Young Ian decked out in his new Kanienkehakan manner? What in the heck are the circular pin adornments for? I looked it up and couldn’t find the answer. Why did Brianna not ask where Young Ian was? The lack of any reconciliation between Jamie and Brianna is strange especially because she told Murtagh she already forgave him. The timey-wimey-ness of Season 4 hurts my brain and made it difficult to figure out any frame of reference. Certainly, Brianna’s timeline was ahead of Roger’s. He was gone for 11 months. Jamie and Claire were gone 6.5-7 months to retrieve him even though they were only a couple of weeks behind him in theory? See you next up for The Fiery Cross read-a-long.

Providence Ep 163
Season 4 Episode 412 Providence Directed by: Mairzee Almas Written by: Karen Campbell   My basic thoughts outline is below, you’ll need to listen to the podcast to get the details! Summary: Roger completes the initiation and remains a slave. He is known as dogface. Fergus plans. Lord John brings Brianna news. She requests an audience after reading the letter.  Brianna and Lord John share an intimate moment. Roger works in the village. A woman with a baby helps Roger. Brianna and Lord John make a visit. Roger breaks a cultural rule. Roger meets a priest. Roger learns his location. Marsalis deduces the plan. What would Jamie and Claire do? The priest is tortured. Roger prays. They dig. The priest is taken away. Brianna and Lord John arrive at their destination.  Roger escapes. Brianna says her peace. Murtagh escapes. Roger does the priest a service. His lover makes a choice. What is Providence? From the Oxford Dictionary. 1 The protective care of God or of nature as a spiritual power. ‘They found their trust in divine providence to be a source of comfort.’ Synonyms: fate, destiny, nemesis, kismet, God's will, divine intervention, predestination, predetermination. 1.1 God or nature as providing protective care. ‘I live out my life as Providence decrees.’ 2 Timely preparation for future eventualities. ‘It was considered a duty to encourage providence.’ Synonyms: prudence, foresight, forethought, far-sightedness, judgement, judiciousness, shrewdness, circumspection, wisdom, sagacity, common sense, precaution, caution, care, carefulness Conflict, Friendship, Protection, Forgiveness, and Confrontation: Brianna reacts to the news Lord John bring about Bonnet’s arrest. Brianna needs to move forward into freedom through forgiveness. Lord John is protective... “I’m not sure that means taking afternoon tea with a murderer.” Brianna misses her mother and experiences unexpected emotions when arriving in town. Lord John offers support. Brianna talks to Bonnet…alone. With Lord John waiting protectively. When she speaks to Bonnet, he gets a rise out of her.   Purpose and Friendship: Fergus and the other Regulators refuse to let Murtagh stay in jail and be sentenced to hang. Marsali supports the plan to break Murtagh from jail. They wish Claire and Jamie were there to help because they would find a way. While Lord John and Brianna are in the jail, Fergus and friends put the breakout plan into action. Marsali and Fergus are going to the Ridge. The boys make to break Murtagh out of jail and run into LJG and Brianna during the escape. With the baby in a basket and all their goods in a wagon, Marsali provides the getaway vehicle. Biding Time, Kindness, Reflection, Conflict, and Sacrificial Love Roger’s put to work as a camp slave even though his arm is injured. He encounters a young mother, Johiehon, who offers Roger medicinal help to help with the pain of his injured arm. Kahereton is jealous and worried about Roger. Roger unwittingly breaks a cultural rule and is put in a hut. Roger is questioned why he was sold by his people. Roger meets Pere Alexandre Ferigault in the hut. Love is the common denominator between Roger and Alexandre. The priest tells his story and why he’s prepared to die. Roger tells his story and why he is an idiot. Roger digs his way out of the hut and to the screaming of Pere he runs away. Roger tries to talk himself out of going back to help Pere. He cannot do it. Calls himself a stupid fool. He runs back to the village. Roger returns to the village and hastens the priest’s death. Johiehon walks into the flame to join her lover. Kahereton is devastated and picks up the baby. Roger is stunned by the turn of events, then is hauled away. “That’s it, lads, take me back to the idiot hut.” Freedom Brianna finds of mind and body freedom through forgiving Bonnet. Pere Ferigault and his lover find freedom in death. Murtagh gains his freedom by the acts of his friends, including an unlikely ally Bonnet is a cat with nine lives and presumably escaped before the prison blew up. Though still a captive, Roger finds freedom in confronting his own emotions and thoughts and doing the right thing. I CANNOT wait until the finale. See you on the flip side.

If Not For Hope Ep 162
Season 4 Episode 411 If Not For Hope Directed by: Mairzee Almas Written by: Bronwyn Garrity and Shaina Fewell   My basic thoughts outline is below, you’ll need to listen to the podcast to get the details! Summary: Roger is recaptured. Brianna uses art therapy. Brianna sketches a beautiful woman. Jocasta plans a party. Jamie, Claire, and Young Ian are on the trail. There is a worry about Brianna. Young Ian plays a marriage therapist. Fergus finds intel, but not work. Jocasta bears a gift. Marsali knows what a man needs. The eligible men arrive. Brianna commands a parlor game.  A pirate is captured. A proposal will be made. Brianna hatches a plan. Bones are discovered. Jamie and Claire makeup. Roger is put to a test. This episode brims over with emotional vulnerability and characters being unable to hide who they are, what they are, and exist in bareness for viewers to watch. The overarching theme of hope is a bit over the top and lacks any subtlety. Brianna The Prized Heifer: Salivating single men…mostly. Jocasta is persuasive. A Lord joins the dinner party. A game of psychology. Brianna swoons and begins to gain a friend. An offer he couldn’t refuse. Lord John: His presence. His friendship. His encounter. Bonding with Brianna. What’s Up with Roger: He daydreams. He’s tested by the Mohawk villagers. Jamie and Claire: The divide between them. The makeup. A Man Needs A Purpose: Fergus’ plight and the wife knows best. Murtagh the Wanted: Regulator business. Capturing the pirate. Lizzie the Loud Mouth: She’s judgmental. She’s irresponsible with her words. She’s loyal.   Final Thoughts: I wanted to love this episode. So much detail and excellence were given to the whole River Run experience, yet the Jamie and Claire makeup seemed okay but not as impactful as desired. The Fergus subplot is bizarre since he had a job when Roger ran into him at the newspaper shop.
