Outlander, Ep. 1.13, “The Watch” starts and stalls
The threat is never gone. Jamie thought that he and Claire would be safe once they returned to his home, to Lallybroch, but he should have known that as a wanted man, he can’t hide. McCory and his men of The Watch, who provided us with last week’s cliffhanger, turn out to be scoundrels who offer protection to Lallybroch for a price. As such, we are treated to an episode that is compelling in the moment, but leaves one feeling relatively unfulfilled.
