Claire faces the loss of a patient and has to figure out what to put in the notes in Outlander Book 5, Chapter 106

Claire is making notes about a recent patient in Outlander Book 5, Chapter 106. These notes aren’t easy to make though.

Claire has lost a patient, and not necessarily due to the injury her patient faced. She’s sure that it was the penicillin that killed her patient, and now she needs to figure out what to put in her notes. The notes are important, but this could lead to Claire admitting a manslaughter charge and getting into trouble for it.

She has Brianna there with her. It turns out that Brianna knows just what to say during the situation. Well, Bree knows how to act, and that’s all because of Uncle Joe.

There is a bit of foreshadowing within this. Claire thinks about when she was on trial for witchcraft, and it’s clear that she is concerned that people won’t understand her medicine. Why would they when she uses treatments that aren’t even around yet? And she’s not all that sure people will understand all the terms used.

This isn’t a chapter that was used in Outlander. However, Claire does get involved in something else earlier in the season that is partly connected to this. I’ll get into my thoughts on the changes in the adaptation section.

Let’s dive into The Fiery Cross Chapter 106.
