I don't know what to say. At first, I was really into this episode. Jenny and Claire tracking through the Highlands looking for Jamie was a think of brilliance (thank you Diana!). Then Jenny, really, torturing a Red Coat for information on Jamie only to talk about Jamie right in front of the man leading me to believe they couldn't leave him alive... thank goodness for Murtagh!
But then we ended up traveling through the Highlands with Murtagh which had it's really funny moments but it was drawn out and rather boring, for me. I just kept wanting them to figure out where Jamie was and go find him but instead we keep moving from town to town, much like Rent, singing and dancing. Psst... Murtagh stick to killing Red Coats.
And then there is this Gypsy which seems rather dangerous to me and I kept wondering what exactly he was going to end up doing to them but as it turns out he's into the whole love thing so he helped Claire for nothing (except the rents previously). But that Gypsy gives Claire a message and Murtagh and Claire run off to go to find Jamie only to find Dougal. So are you thinking Uncle Dougal is there to help... you'd be so wrong! Nope, Jamie Jamie walked right into some Red Coats and is now in Wentworth Prison and sentenced to die! A Dhia! So Dougal suggests they run off and get married? WTF? Okay Dougal, I loved you but now you have me pissed off... but I strangely love it.
And if you go back, Murtagh and Claire have this moment when Murtagh talks about the woman who he loved who turned out to be Ellen, Jenny and Jamie's mom, and Murtagh says he thinks of Jamie as a son. Gosh, I love you Murtagh even though you have the worst plans.
But back to Diobolical Dougal and Claire is agreeing to marry him if Jamie dies. Claire!? But then she convinces Willie, Angus and Rupert to help her liberate Jamie from Wentworth... please make it in time!!!!
So the middle dragged for me but even a 3 Kilt rating is like an 8 for most other shows.
