This week, Claire is escorted to meet the Garrison Commander (and don’t look in the book, the first 20 minutes of this episode isn’t there), and gets a nasty surprise in the person of Black Jack Randall. She is offered a drastic choice in order to potentially save her life, and book readers will be very happy they got through the first 40 minutes of this episode. WARNING: Parts of this episode are very difficult to watch, and I suggest you have your favorite Scotch close at hand, for medicinal purposes. I’ll have a lot to say about this episode on Saturday after it airs – and I REALLY want to hear what you have to say about it. I think there will be a lot to talk about.
And watch tomorrow for my transcription of the Twitter Q&A with Tobias Menzies – I sure wish this would have been scheduled after Episode 106 airs, but I don’t make the schedule.

Oh, and watch very carefully behind Dougal during one of the difficult scenes, and you may glimpse a character who certainly wishes he weren’t there. I’d love to tell you more, but I’d probably get in trouble. His name is very appropriate to the scene he’s in. Here’s a photo of the actor you’re looking for:
And just for fun, to lighten up the mood, here’s the Highlander video:
