Outlander Season 6 Episode 3 Review: Temperance

Some fans might not be pleased that the episode focused on Fergus, but there were also scenes that developed other characters in ways that previous episodes didn’t always offer. We see Grandpa Jaime lovingly correct Germain so he can be a good brother. Brianna helps Marsali endure. Roger provides emotional and practical support to Ridge residents. This is a good thing for Season 6 because it’s clear that writers are learning from previous reviews or new writers are adopting a different approach to storytelling.

Marsali partially understood the pain Fergus was going through, but she couldn’t understand why Fergus would choose to drink instead of being with her and the children. She tells Fergus that she poisoned Lionel Brown because he was not there to protect her. Marsali’s decision to fire Fergus until he can sober up isn’t about scoring, it’s about making sure she doesn’t have to go through what she saw with her alcoholic father once. again. This boundary setting also caused stress for Fergus as his child once again forced him to deal with his own disability.

Although Jamie and Claire try to help Fergus, a lot of their attention in this episode is turned to Tom Christie. He finally agreed to have hand surgery. He refused the ether, and instead Jamie read scriptures to him. Tom also still has issues with Claire’s medical agency. Meanwhile, Malva is scouting outside instead of helping Claire or her father. She runs into Ian more than once throughout the episode, and their interaction is somehow both flirty and creepy at the same time. Claire kept Tom overnight to make sure there were no side effects from the surgery. She wanted to drink ether after a conversation about punishment for Henri-Christian bullies caused memories of Lionel Brown but Christie’s complaints about pain and fever prevented her from doing so. .

While Claire was examining his injuries, Tom quoted St Paul’s words to justify his wrongdoing but Jamie revealed later that this could have been a traumatic reaction from the ordeal. theirs in Ardsmuir. Through these conversations, it is revealed that the difference between Malva’s birth and Tom’s release from Ardsmuir could explain the family’s abuse and also why her mother of Malva was accused of witchcraft. Even when Tom eventually apologizes to Claire for being a jerk during the surgery, he goes back to his old ways by calling the novel Tom Jones “Trash” instead of being delighted, Claire gave him something to distract him from the pain.

Usually, Snake Day or the day Jamie collects rent from Ridge residents is a happy day. For Fergus, it was a nightmare when Mrs. MacGregor called Henri-Christian “a freak” and scolded him for being drunk in public. Tom told Mrs. MacGregor that he was a nice person, but also had a condescending tone to it. Fergus leaves and Jamie discovers he is about to commit suicide with a knife. Fergus’ actions in the previous two episodes have clearly built up to this point. It doesn’t feel like an impressive increase in value but rather the culmination of months of severe depression. Jamie bandages the wound while saying he’s coming out of an alcohol-induced depression. Claire and Jamie then bring Fergus back home to Marsali to signal his new commitment to better mental health and sanity.
