I'm sorry I'm so late with this post. There has been a lot happening and I've had trouble really trying to dissect this episode considering it's subject matter. I will ask you what you thought of the episode but for me it is a 5 Kilts and probably beyond. For me this episode surpassed any other and if Caitriona isn't nominated for an Emmy then there is something wrong with the system.
Onto the Recap....
Faith opens on Claire with a little red haired girl in the 1950s. This little girl calls Claire mommy and asks her about the birds in a book. Claire tells her she's seen the birds in Scotland an the little girl wonders if her mommy has been to Scotland.
We shift back to L’Hôpital where Claire looks shell shock and pale. She's losing her baby and as the "doctors" and sisters work to save her, tears run from the corners of her eyes.
Later Claire wakes at L’Hôpital and realizes her stomach is flatter than it should be. She sits up and starts looking around for her baby. She calls out for her child but Mother Hildegarde rushes to her side to tell her the baby was born dead and has now joined the angels. Claire has a moment of stunned disbelief before she starts hysterically asking for her baby.
Later, while Claire rests fitfully due to fever, Mother Hildegarde explains that she baptized the baby with the name Faith but that must stay between them as it is illegal to baptize a child who is not living. Mother Hildegarde brings in a priest to hear confession but Claire isn't willing to give up her sins, as they are all she's left with.
Bouton sits watch over her.
