4. Helping Jamie make a decision
There were actually two moments for this in the Outlander Season 5 premiere. Jamie needed to turn to Claire for help making a decision. Of course, Claire was there to listen, share her thoughts, and then support him in whatever decision he decided to make.
I’ve always loved seeing the partnership between them. From the beginning, they’ve had this excellent ability to bounce ideas between them and come to a joint decision. We lost some of that in the third season but got it back during Season 4. Now it looks like their relationship is stronger than ever.
3. Offering to remove Josiah’s tonsils
The morning after the wedding, Claire opened her surgery for the people on the Ridge. This was only natural, right? Of course she was going to make sure the people of the Ridge were as healthy as possible.
One of those who turned up in her surgery was Josiah Beardsley with a sore throat. It turns out his tonsils are inflamed and Claire knows that a tonsillectomy is needed. I love that she’s able to look at her tools and know that she’d be able to remove the tonsils, even in the 18th century. However, she doesn’t push for him to have them removed.
