Outlander Season 2, Episode 7: Faith
This is most definitely a heartbreaking episode, but it is one that is perfect for Galentine’s Day. It shows us two important female friendships Claire gained while living in Paris.
The first is Louise, who helps Claire initially with the loss of Faith. I don’t think Claire even realizes what Louise did for her, but Louise being there to help remove a stillborn Faith from Claire’s arms really was that first part of healing.
Then there was Mother Hildegarde. Despite it being against the law, Mother Hildegarde quickly baptized Faith so she wouldn’t be doomed to an eternity of darkness. I absolutely loved that moment as it showed the compassion Mother Hildegarde had for Claire.
Outlander Season 5, Episode 2, “Between Two Fires”
We’re jumping to the fifth season for the last episode of Outlander to watch for Galentine’s Day. This is when Claire turns to Marsali to help with treating people on the Ridge.
I love seeing how Claire and Marsali’s relationship changes throughout the series. They don’t like each other at first. In fact, they hate each other thanks to Laoghaire. However, over time, Marsali realizes that Claire isn’t everything her mother said she was, and Claire realizes that Marsali is nothing like Laoghaire.
This episode brings all of that to a head. When Claire needs an assistant and Bree can’t be that, Claire turns to Marsali to help. Marsali is more than willing to get stuck in there, and it all leads to that amazing moment when Marsali makes it clear she will do whatever it takes to protect her family.
