Claire’s safe place was full of Outlander Easter eggs from the past. Some of them were from the first season and others from the previous episode.
There were many connections to previous episodes of Outlander in the fantasy world. It’s natural that Claire would pull from the past to make her feel safe. It’s time to break down the fantasy for all the hidden Easter eggs.
Some of the Easter eggs were connected to moments when she felt the safest. Others brought in memories of strength and pride. Take a look through and see if we missed anything.
Season 1 Jamie
While everyone else was dressed in clothing from the 1960s, Jamie was dressed in clothing from the past. His hair and style were everything from the first season—the time Claire met Jamie and would have felt her safest and lightest. After all, while there was a bounty on Jamie’s head and Claire was tried as a witch at one point, this was a time long before a lot of the drama.
The only difference was the clothing. Jamie wore pants and he had his leather jacket. Claire had spent so much time with Jamie dressed like this, it may have been difficult to imagine the kilt and jacket from the past.
Other moments from the first season
It wasn’t just Jamie from Outlander Season 1. The vase was something Claire kept focusing on, which was the vase from the pilot episode. It’s the vase that Claire thought about buying, and in this time, she did decide to get it.
Then there was the wallpaper, which matched that of the laird’s bedroom at Lallybroch. Of course, Lallybroch would have been her safe place.
Jamie says “blood of my blood,” and there’s the wrapping of her in the shawl. There are a few other lines throughout the fantasy world that all connect back to words he’d said in the past. “Shaking so hard you’re making my teeth rattle” connected back to the pilot episode when Claire met Jamie.
All these lines will have taken Claire back to simpler times.
There is also a mention of sweet potatoes. This is a connection back to Claire telling Jenny to plant potatoes in the first season; a way to survive the upcoming famine. It’s a reminder to fight for survival.
