On the finish of Outlander‘s most up-to-date episode, titled “The Bakra,” there’s an fascinating change comprised of the books with regard to Jamie. We’ve an concept of why it was made, so learn on to see for those who agree with our principle. Guide and TV present spoilers comply with!
After Jamie and Claire work out 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 advised 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 loose the person they bought at a slave public sale (they have been making an attempt to save lots of him, not making an attempt 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 truly killed) and excessive treason for the seditious pamphlets. Earlier than he’s taken into custody, Jamie rapidly 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 bit schooner procured from the governor (who’s Lord John, keep in mind). The Porpoise spots them and provides chase, however the two ships sail straight right into a hurricane’s path and an enormous wave sinks the Porpoise and all the lads 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 celebration and the top of the ebook, quite a bit occurs. I feel the present writers have needed to condense lots of that into the get together and the following rescue of Ian. A whole lot of what occurs throughout Ian’s rescue does not contain Jamie, so I feel this was the present’s method of getting him off display 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 may select to omit that — it is exhausting to say. However I feel Claire will monitor Geillis to the cave, save Ian, after which the 2 of them should go rescue Jamie.
They will 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’ Struggle.
I might be improper concerning 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 means, Jamie’s arrest appears to be a fast option to pare down a reasonably prolonged part of guide and in addition present a approach for Lord John to assist all of them escape into the open sea with a purpose to meet the hurricane that sweeps them away to America.
