Claire gets back to Jamie, Roger, and Young Ian. The race is on to find Bree, not knowing exactly what Stephen Bonnet is up to during Outlander Season 5, Episode 10. They find out that Bonnet does work at the brothel, so Claire and Jamie head there.
While talking to the ladies, Claire notices that one (who claims she has no idea who Bonnet is but is a terrible liar) is in a lot of pain. One leg is longer than the other and Claire suggests specialist shoes. With this and some money, the woman tells Claire everything she knows. Which is a LOT!
Stephen Bonnet tries to woo Bree
When Bree wakes up, she finds out that Bonnet wants to woo Bree. He wants them to play happy families and needs Bree to teach him how to be a proper gentleman.
At first, she resists. However, she soon realizes that this could be perfect. Gain his trust and she can escape.
It all leads to Bree reading a story. While the book is “The Art of Husbandry,” Bonnet can’t talk and Bree decides to tell her favorite story, “Moby Dick.” It works to gain Bonnet’s trust, as he believes that this is Jemmy’s favorite tale. It also connects to him as a sailor, and he eventually shares his nightmare of drowning.
When Brianna goes to bed, she makes it clear that a lady and gentleman will sleep in separate rooms. It all seems to play to her favor when in the morning, the prostitute from the brothel (who Bree later asks for help but is denied) is pouring tea for breakfast. Bree encourages Bonnet to let her go alone to fetch Jemmy. However, when they seal the deal with a kiss, Bonnet realizes that she’s lying.
It’s time for his second plan.
