On the finish of Outlander‘s most up-to-date episode, titled “The Bakra,” there’s an attention-grabbing change produced from the books with regard to Jamie. Now we have an concept of why it was made, so learn on to see for those who agree with our principle. Guide and TV present spoilers observe!
After Jamie and Claire determine that Geillis Duncan is the “bruja” who has been kidnapping younger boys, they flee the governor’s mansion each to rescue younger Ian and to get away from Captain Leonard, the officer from the Porpoise who was informed about Jamie being a smuggler and writer of seditious materials. The captain and his males give chase, coming upon Jamie and Claire’s carriage after it stops to let out the person they bought at a slave public sale (they had been attempting to save lots of him, not attempting to purchase a slave).
Anyway, regardless of Claire’s protests about how neither Captain Leonard nor any of his males can be alive if it weren’t for her, the captain hauls Jamie away to reply for his crimes of homicide of Exciseman Barton (whom Claire has really killed) and excessive treason for the seditious pamphlets. Earlier than he’s taken into custody, Jamie unexpectedly shoves the images of Brianna and Willie into Claire’s arms, after which he’s taken away.
Within the books, Captain Leonard by no means catches up with Jamie and Claire. After they rescue Ian, they escape in a little bit schooner procured from the governor (who’s Lord John, keep in mind). The Porpoise spots them and offers chase, however the two ships sail straight right into a hurricane’s path and a large wave sinks the Porpoise and all the boys aboard.
Jamie, Claire, Ian, and their companions handle to climate the hurricane and find yourself coming ashore within the American colony of Georgia.
However between the governor’s get together and the tip of the e book, quite a bit occurs. I believe the present writers have needed to condense a whole lot of that into the get together and the following rescue of Ian. A variety of what occurs throughout Ian’s rescue would not contain Jamie, so I believe this was the present’s approach of getting him off display screen for a bit. Now Claire goes to Rose Corridor to confront Geillis and the Campbells. They could get into the voodoo ceremony involving Margaret, however the present might also select to omit that – it is arduous to say. However I believe Claire will monitor Geillis to the cave, save Ian, after which the 2 of them should go rescue Jamie.
They’re going to in all probability enlist Lord John to assist them and that is how everybody (minus Lord John) will find yourself fleeing on Lord John’s boat. Maybe the Porpoise won’t even be chasing them at this level, since filming a hurricane with one small boat might be arduous sufficient, not to mention filming one with a British Man o’ Battle.
I might be fallacious in regards to the order of occasions. Maybe Claire will attempt to rescue Jamie earlier than they go get younger Ian, or maybe whereas Claire is rescuing younger Ian, Captain Leonard will take Jamie to the governor, not figuring out they’re pals, after which Lord John will give Jamie the boat and assist him get again to Claire and Ian at Rose Corridor.
Both approach, Jamie’s arrest appears to be a fast option to pare down a reasonably prolonged part of e book and likewise present a approach for Lord John to assist all of them escape into the open sea in an effort to meet the hurricane that sweeps them away to America.
