Watched it this morning as usual and thought it was a good episode. Some bits I thought were very drawn out, such as Geilis trying to seduce Jamie's nephew. The plot on a whole was decent and seeing a variety of characters and relationships was good.

It was a real nail-biter. I can't believe that Geillis is a pedophile.

She knew he was Claire's nephew, but she raped him, anyway. It's gross, but I wonder if it's in the book.

Exciting to see John Grey,though. He must still have some lingering desire for Jamie if he's looking at him like that.

Mr. Willoughby and Margaret was unexpected,but nice.

I forgot how much Geillis creeped me out.

Loved seeing Lord John again.

Poor Young Ian.

I think John Grey will always be in love with Jamie

I don't think it hit her until then. Knowing Jamie had a son and seeing his love for him, as well as how he was growing up was a gust of wind that smacked her in the face. It probably hurt, since they didn't get to raise Brianna together. She already had to face Joanni and Marsali,but Jamie's own flesh and blood is a different story.

I'm amused that her gaydar was so off. I know that it was closeted,but come on. Randall was into men and raped both Fergus and Jamie. The looks John gave Jamie were so obvious. It was this uncomfortable tension between them. Poor John-He married Isobel to be his beard. Jamie is his true love, even if it's unrequited.

Geillis isn't just creepy, she's sick now. She molests and rapes young boys, then tosses them aside or kills them. Young Ian is only alive b/c he's Jamie's nephew and leverage against them. She still plans to kill him, even if Clare wants him back.

I think Rita meant the fact that they have history.

I thought the episode was OK. I was pretty much tearing out my hair when they were separated at the end. I'm just so ready for them to stay together for a good while.

Yep, that scene with Jamie, John and Claire was soooo awkward.

OH! I forgot about that,lol.

I'm ready for them to just be together too,but their entire relationship is about drama and turmoil.

I'm just nervous about Ian. Jenny already thinks that Clare is trouble, but she'll kill Clare if she knows. Her son was kidnapped and raped and almost killed. I hope Geillis dies a slow, painful death. She didn't even seem to care about her baby. I'm not surprised that Douglas ditched her, though.

It's always a separation storyline with these two
