Marsali gave birth and Tom Christie decided to ask for the surgery. Here are the five best moments from Outlander Season 6, Episode 2.
A lot happened in Outlander Season 6, Episode 2. We got a lot of storylines from A Breath of Snow and Ashes, bringing us some of the most hilarious moments from the book. The episode also helped to set up a few character storylines to come, especially when it came to Roger MacKenzie.
It’s time to look back at the episode. We take a look inside the episode as a whole, picking out the best moments throughout. These moments don’t necessarily focus on some of the main characters since we break down their best moments individually, but there are going to be some moments worth repeating.
5 best moments from Outlander Season 6, Episode 2
There is one moment that stands out for everyone. It’s all about the funeral. I’m so glad the show found a way to include it because it is a hilarious moment in the book. It’s also important for Roger’s character development. We see him remain composed and serious despite the situation in front of him.
Mrs. Wilson wakes up from death. We see Claire make it clear to Roger that this is just temporary, and he’s the one who needs to tell her that she’s on her way to meet God very soon. It’s a shock to all, but I love how Roger handles the moment. It is one of Roger’s best moments overall, but the funeral as a whole deserves a mention.
Tom and Claire debating God’s will
At the start of the episode, Claire goes to see Tom about the hand she stitched up. Once it’s healed, she wants to do surgery on the other hand, but Tom isn’t interested. At least, not yet.
It brings up a debate about God’s will. Tom decides that he can’t argue with God, yet when it came to his goat, he had Claire help. Claire is able to call him out on his views (and that Paul says in the Bible that women should stay silent), but she does it in a kind way as she points out his fears about his hand.
Seeing Adso and Rollo
Adso and Rollo were certainly missed in the Outlander Season 6 premiere. It’s not easy working with animals, so it’s not surprising that they only show up when they need to. At least they’re real animals unlike Ghost in Game of Thrones.
Adso has an important role. Major MacDonald is allergic to cats, and in the title card, we see Adso sitting in his jacket. That little feline is great for Claire’s surgery, but not everyone likes him. Major MacDonald doesn’t exactly have a fondness for a few animals at the Ridge in the book. Will we get to see the White Sow?
Marsali and Lizzie’s reaction to matches
Brianna makes matches and gets the chance to show them off at dinner. They don’t quite get the reception she hoped for. This is likely because Marsali and Lizzie don’t realize just how beneficial they can be, even when out in the forest.
However, I do love Marsali and Lizzie’s reactions. They want to be happy for her, but they just don’t understand the point of matches yet. They should be a little more impressed with later inventions.
Young Ian’s blessing over Henri-Christian
The birth of Henri-Christian was a big moment in Outlander Season 6, Episode 2. It came with the news that the baby is a dwarf, and that’s not something Fergus is happy about. Young Ian steps in to help with this situation.
He goes to see Marsali and takes Henri-Christian to give him a Mohawk blessing. It’s heartwarming to see that he looks past the disability. He just wants to make sure this baby is protected, and he also uses it as a chance to finally open up to someone about Emily and the child that once was. We don’t get all the details, but just opening up to Marsali is a start.
