Outlander: Preview of Episode 106, The Garrison Commander

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.

Watch a preview of the episode here:

Who is the Garrison Commander? Watch this clip for more info:

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:
