2. Roger and Claire discussing paternity secrets
Claire and Roger have had a lot of moments together. We don’t see a lot of appreciation for the bond forming between the two. Claire has become someone for Roger to turn to for advice and help. He trusts her and she’s been more than happy to help him through his thoughts. She understands why he needs to think before acting.
And in Outlander Season 5, Episode 5, we see this moment of the two of them connecting again. This time it’s over secrets about paternity. Roger needs to know that potentially lying to Jemmy is the right thing, and it’s something that Claire is more than happy to help him figure out.
1. Marsali in the zone
I’ve loved how Outlander Season 5 has already developed Marsali in a way I don’t feel like we got in the novels. Don’t get me wrong; I like Marsali in the books but I love her in the show. And she certainly takes my top moment for the episode overall.
Claire performed surgery on the twins in the episode. Naturally, she needed an assistant, which was Marsali. Rather than squirm at the sight of blood like Lizzie and Jo, Marsali was all business. She was a true surgical nurse in that moment and I adored it.
