I can't wait to see ninja Ian & Yoda Ian memes!
Pregnancy talk. .. my husband's boss called & promoted him seconds before I gave birth to our now 18 month old. Hubby was all "that's great but they're telling her to push now" He was gone 2 days later in new position & I had a week to pack up the whole house with a ten year old & newborn. As for Ian missing the actual birth…lol no. I threatened my husband that if he ever missed the births he'd also miss the rest of their lives.
Mary and Blake… my husband and I really enjoy your podcast. Both of us love this series and we also have different takes on what we see. So fun to compare notes. Blake, thanks for posting that chat about the Jacobite cause. I also had to google Culledon and found a black and white documentary talking about the people responsible, the effects on the culture, even details on specific people. For example, one British soldier was lashed 800 times the day before the battle (for looting I think) , and he was expected to fight the very next day! It broke my heart, but it has added much needed depth to the story for me. The clans seemed to be at odds so much so, that they would steal, murder, rape, and other sundry activities so that many were more fearful of a particular clan than of redcoats. Hence, needed to hire your own "police force" aka, the Watch. Yep, I get it now!
I don’t think I heard this from anyone, but from episode one I’ve been very impressed with Sam Heughan’s performance. For me, this episode just turned it up a notch – especially in two places:
One, when dealing with McQuarrie about Horrocks – so nonchalantly buttering his bannock, until it’s clear that McQuarrie KNOWS something is not right, and then that cool, straight, almost defiant look as he admits to killing Horrocks – it implies “and I’d have no problem doing the same if anyone else threatens my family”.
And second, when Claire tells him she believes she can’t have children – his face! You see it all – the crushing pain of the end of his dream of a family, and then pulled back to protect Claire’s feelings. Once she leaves the room, it all comes back – so beautifully shown without a word of dialogue.
And my last comment – Jamie knew SOMEONE was there, you see him start, before Horrocks is stabbed, but Ian is walking on soft ground, it was totally believable to me that he could sneak up behind Horrocks who was focused on Jamie. And then Jamie talking about how they used to argue about which was the greater sin, was obviously Jamie trying to just talk Ian down from the shock of what he had done. By now you’ve seen him do this in other situations.
I’m LOVING hearing these podcasts now (Nov 2019) for the first time. Great stuff!! Thank you!
