9. Encouraging a meeting place

Jamie and Tom don’t like each other. That bit is clear from the start, and we didn’t really need the flashback to tell us the story—I did appreciate it, thoughHowever, Jamie is the laird of Fraser’s Ridge. It’s up to him to settle disputes.

He finds a way to do that. Tom is building a church, and initially, it’s only for Protestants. That won’t do. Jamie suggests that it becomes a meeting house, calling back on his and Tom’s time as masons in Ardsmuir. It’s the perfect balance between offering Tom some respect but making it clear that his word is the end.

8. Dealing with the fisherfolk kids

Outlander Season 6, Episode 3 was a hard hour to watch. It all started with Henri-Christian being put in the river. Jamie had to figure out a way to deal with that situation when he learned the fisherfolk kids viewed Henri-Christian as a demon.

He offered the kids a choice: touch the baby or touch the hot poker. This was the perfect way to give them a chance to do the right thing. To top it off, he gave Germain some sound words of advice about protecting his little brother.

7. Sharing the details of the Trail of Tears

While Jamie can’t do much about some elements of the future, he can try. He decides to tell Bird about the Trail of Tears. Maybe it won’t save the Cherokee in the end, but he’s tried.

Bird is receptive, believing in the ability to see into the future. With the delivery of the guns and this news, Bird trusts Jamie and I do believe this is what truly cements their friendship. This is the moment we know Bird will have Jamie’s back if necessary.
