2. Savages (Season 4, Episode 5)
This is a heartbreaking episode when it comes to Claire’s Native American friends. It seems odd to put this episode on at Christmas. However, there is a major reason why it’s perfect. It’s all about Jamie’s storyline.
Remember that Christmas is all about family. Well, this is the episode where Jamie and Murtagh reunite after more than a decade being separated. There’s a look of shock and happiness between the two of them as they realize that both made it through alive. What’s even better is seeing Murtagh’s face as he has his back to Jamie but knows that its his godson talking to him.
1. Lallybroch (Season 1, Episode 12)
Finally, we have to end with an episode from the first season. It’s all about Jamie returning home, and he brings Claire with him to meet the family. There is a lot going on in this episode, but at its core, it’s all about the love of family.
Jenny and Jamie are naturally at each other’s throats to start, but it’s a sibling fight. Once initial tensions disappear, Jenny gets to know Claire and we see Jamie and Ian reunite. There is this hope for Claire and Jamie to be able to settle in and just enjoy a quiet life. Of course, that would make for a boring story to tell us and drama has to happen!
