Jamie and Claire were reunited in Outlander Season 5, Episode 3 and they faced a horrific episode. Here are the five best lines from the episode.
Outlander Season 5, Episode 3 was certainly a dark and creepy episode, but that doesn’t stop some great lines from taking place. Claire and Jamie were back together, and this time on the road to building a militia.
This is the last look back at the episode for the week. Here are my five favorite lines from “Free Will.”
I always have. And I always will.
Jamie starts the best lines. When Jamie returns home, he and Claire discuss the events that need to happen next. He doesn’t want a war, but he has no choice but to build a militia. It means heading out on the road, and it could mean battles in the future.
Claire knows that means she’ll be needed. She points out that Jamie will need her, and that’s when we get this line with a soft smile. There’s no doubt that he has always needed Claire.
Reminds me of the time I was saying good-bye to your father on the station platform when I was going off to war.
Claire has a chance to say goodbye to Brianna before heading out. This part reminds me of the goodbye at the cabin in Outlander Season 4, but for Claire, it reminds her of World War II. Claire knows that there’s a chance a war will break out and she fears what will happen in the future.
I also love that she says “your father” and not “Frank.” Brianna sees both Frank and Jamie as her fathers, which is something Claire, Jamie, and Roger all respect.
Ye’re my tenant. Ye have my protection. I have a right to the truth.
After finding out about Kezzie, Jamie wants to know the truth. This line makes it clear that he has a right to it, but he will also offer his protection. That’s the right that the Beardsley twins have.
I would do it for a dog, Claire. Could I do less for him?
There were some standout moments throughout the time at the Beardsley homestead. The moments towards the end after the lines that stand out the most. Jamie makes it clear that he can’t let Mr. Beardsley suffer. Regardless of everything Beardsley has done, Jamie couldn’t do less than he would do for a dog.
I’ll do what must be done.
Finally, Claire finishes the episode. As Jamie asks her to kill him out of mercy should he suffer a stroke and not be able to do anything, Claire makes a promise. It’s a smart promise. She will do what must be done, but that doesn’t mean she agrees to killing him. After all, why promise something she may not be able to keep?
