We’ll be recapping every episode of Outlander this season, both in blog post AND podcast. Kendra and Sarah will be focusing mostly on the costumes — designed by Terry Dresbach — in our blog posts, but probably tackling both the costumes and the story itself in our podcasts. You can find the podcast at the bottom of this post, or on iTunes!
For those who aren’t regular Frock Flicks readers: this blog and podcast is all about costumes in historical movies and TV shows, and we approach things from the angle of history. So, expect us to be talking about the costumes primarily from the point of view of comparison with the real history of the 1740s. We’ll also talk about costume in terms of story, and the deviations that come with this one having the fantasy element of time travel. But, know that when we talk about that dreaded phrase “historical accuracy,” we’re not doing it to be mean or judgy. It’s just one lens through which to watch this fabulous show.
Claire finds a dead Scot, which makes her reflective…
The Scottish military leaders can’t decide on which course of action to take.
Bonnie Prince Charlie’s outfit is a direct recreation of this portrait of the real guy:
Angus and Rupert harass some of the Scottish recruits, while Dougal decides to check out the bog in between the Scottish and English troops.
Claire is busy prepping the field hospital for the inevitable wounded.
A local Scot turns up with a secret route through the bog, which will allow the Scots to surprise the English.
The Scots sneak through the bog and attack the English…
The Scots win the battle with very few losses. Claire takes care of the wounded, including Rupert (who we worry about) and Angus (who seems fine) — and finally Jamie shows up.
Angus dies, and it is tragic. Dougal gets in trouble with Bonnie Prince Charlie for his bloodthirstiness.
