Just the Outlander chapter

Claire and Jamie are heading to Kings Mountain with the rest of the group. The men aren’t happy that Claire is with them, but they end up seeing why she is there when they need medical treatment. This is certainly a thing with the time period. These men aren’t used to woman being “useful.” Not with where they all come from.

We get a sense of dread in the chapter. Claire notes how the men aren’t all that prepared. They have no food, and they have to get food from the rebel houses or steal from the Loyalist crops when they can. All they are focused on is finding out where Ferguson is to take him down.

When they stop, Claire and Jamie get a chance to talk. Jamie shares a conversation that he had with Mandy, who shared that she can hear animals, Jem, and Claire (a little). She doesn’t hear Jamie, though, and sees him as the color of water.

What about Jem? Jamie will ask him if he survives this, which brings him onto the subject of what Claire should do if Jamie dies. He wants Claire and the MacKenzies to go back through the stones. Davy will need to stay with Rachel and Young Ian. Mandy shared that Davy is the same color as Jamie, which suggests that he doesn’t have the ability to time travel.

He would also like mass said over his soul, and he would like people to remember him. Those who are reasonable requests. I don’t think Bree and Roger would agree to leaving their child behind forever, though.
