4. Joe Abernathy
We need a doctor, right? If I’m sick, I need someone who is skilled and knowledgable to take care of me. So, Joe Abernathy makes a lot of sense.
There are lots of other reasons I’d want Joe around. He’s such a calming voice of reason throughout Outlander. We got to see him not pass any judgment when Claire told Joe that Frank wasn’t Brianna’s biological father. He just accepted it and encouraged her to go after the man she once loved.
He was also there for her when she struggled with the loss of a patient. He didn’t tell her to suck it up and get on with work. Joe is full of empathy, and we need a man like him around during quarantine.
3. Marsali McKimmie Fraser
Another important Outlander character for quarantine is Marsali. First of all, she’s become an excellent apprentice to Claire, and I could see her being the same to Joe.
But there’s more to Marsali than that. This is a woman who is able to look after those she cares about, and she will fight tooth and nail for them. She isn’t afraid to speak out when there’s something happening that she doesn’t like.
On top of all that, she’s able to butcher meat like a pro. She will have the skills to grow crops and will likely have the ability to work with herbs and other medicinal treatments. This is a woman we need around.
