The Parisian sacrifice 

By Valérie Gay-Corajoud  


Between conspiracies and manipulation in a foreign country, far from everything that had brought them together, Claire and Jamie must still and always sacrifice themselves in the name of past history to come. The first part of the second season, like a painful but necessary joint before Culloden's curse. 

Season 4 

Wilmington - 408 


There were many different women in this episode, some accepting their assigned roles, some trying to expand their roles, but all without a real choice of their own decisions and lives ... Women at that time were subject to men And their roles were dictated by a patriarchal company. 

Dragonfly in amber  - 213
By Pas Cale


, the eponymous title of volume 2 of the saga, episode 13 of season 2 is rich and complex; after many questions about the angle of attack, I chose to approach it with the theme of wandering. Decryption.

Season 6 

Between two fires - 502

By Valérie Gay-Corajoud 


In two intertwined parts, one in Fraser Ridge where Claire tries to overcome the medical ignorance of the time, and in Wilmington, where Jamie is caught between the British army and the anger of the regulators, this second episode installs the political context in which the season will unfold.

The first wife  - 308

It is not incidentally that Clear crosses stones of Craigh Na Dunn this time. It is to join the man of his life. To find this unequaled love lack of which threw a constant voile over last 20 years. Then, why is it so difficult? Why love seems not to be enough? 

The cross of fire - 501

The first episode of a season is like the cover of a book, which catches the eye, makes you want to grab it, leaf through it, and then delve into it.

The Bakra and Eye of the storm  - 312 & 313
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud

Although the second part of Outlander's third season is particularly eventful, the two episodes closing this season are filled with an intensity rarely matched in the saga and set the pace even higher. Jamaica ... like a dynamic interlude that helps us move from Scotland to America without too much pain. 

Perpetual adoration - 505
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud 



Where we learn that Claire knows more than God about the passage of time. 

Just before Culloden - 212 & 213
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud

The wending - 107
By Pas Cale


Episode 7 of Season 1 is, with the reunion (A. Malcolm, 3-06), the episode that helps fulfill the love that unites our two heroes, Claire Beauchamp and James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser. Small non-exhaustive overview of the themes. 

Free Will - 503

By Beth Wilson 


John, Jamie, Claire, and even William yearn for something missing in their lives, or regret choices and struggle to be accepted. 

Providence and A man of valor - 412 & 413
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud 


The two episodes, "providence" and "a man of valor" (which I cannot separate as they are linked together) have the particularity of making 4 independent arcs intersect which will eventually come together. Parallel stories that feature a central character and essential support. 

Do no arm - 402
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud 


Although in any case, this episode deserves a deep analysis, I really want, for this focus, to focus on the theme of slavery, and, in particular, on the way that everyone has to use it , to adapt to it, or to revolt. 

All debts paid - 303
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud, very freely inspired by a text written by C.M. Houghton

Claire becomes a doctor and focuses her life on her work so as not to fall apart within a couple that has no meaning for her. 

Journey-cake - 511 

By Beth Wesson 


No, no, no, no, NO!!!!!  I kept mumbling to myself from the very first scene where Bree and Roger realize Jemmy is a traveler. The looks of realization and its import were on everyone’s faces and the significance for each of them weighed heavily on my heart. “Don’t go”, I mumbled, “please don’t go. ‘ 

The Gathering - 104
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud 


This fourth episode of the first season is a very important articulation between Claire's installation in her new life, her desire to return to her time to find Frank there, and everything that is being put in place, however, so that she finds its place among the inhabitants of Leoch. 

The Devil's mark - 111
By Valérie Gay-Corajoud 


An hour-long episode developed in two very distinct parts - The trial of the witches then the escape of Claire is Jamie -, the mark of the Devil delimits a very precise border in the saga. The one where Claire reveals who she really is.
