Outlander Season 3 Episode 6 – A Malcolm

After weeks and weeks of waiting, Season 3 Episode 6 – “A Malcolm” is finally here!!!

No one actually showed any interest via Facebook about liveblogging with me, but I persevere. Even if it’s a party of 1, the party must go on!

Season 3 Episode 6 A Malcolm – Post Episode Wrap Up

A Malcolm was just not the episode I was expecting. There was waaaaaay too much going on! Seriously. The characters haven’t seen each other in 20 years. The audience has been waiting for this reunion since the end of season 2. WHY ON EARTH ARE YOU CONTINUING WITH PLOT AT THIS POINT?!?!?

Ok breathe. The scenes where Jamie and Claire were alone together were exactly what I wanted. They were slow, poignant, timid, awkward, and so full of unspoken love I teared up with happiness for them. But I wanted a whole episode of that. I didn’t need the Fergus reunion yet. Ian Murray could’ve easily waited until the next episode. The whole morning after/brothel girls scene, while hilarious, was totally unnecessary. And the attack on Claire!? Why, why, why would you do that? Can’t we just get one freaking episode to let our characters find happiness in their reunion?! Do we really have to put them in peril immediately?

And WTF was with that behind the scenes bit at the end? We got five minutes of the crew telling us they wanted to make the scenes intimate – duh, we know…we just watched it. And did they seriously try to explain the fact that they aren’t aging either of the actors, but it’s ok because Jamie now has to wear glasses and Claire was momentarily insecure when she was naked in front of him? That’s how they justify the passage of 20 years with nary an extra wrinkle on the characters?

I’m done.

In next week’s episode – who the fuck knows! Bah!

    My god, could Jamie be any cuter??? I love that we get to see a snippet of his day before Claire got there. Never suspecting what the day could hold….

    Seriously?! We are like 10 minutes in and Jamie’s pants are off already?!!?!?

    Ummmmmmmmmmm, hello! That first kiss had ME quivering. I guess 20 years of waiting builds the sexual tension up a bit huh?

    Awww, Jamie is nervous about his glasses!
    I don’t know if my heart can take Jamie looking at the photos of Bree. I can’t even imagine learning about your own child in such an odd, second-hand way.

    Seriously!!?!??! He chooses now to talk about Willie and everything that went down in England? I mean, yes honesty is the best policy, but you could find better timing man.

    WHAT!!!!! Was NOT expecting a meeting with Fergus. This is bananas!

    I realize that that hooooors (as Jamie would call them) would’ve had to put up with a lot of shit in those days. But licking elbows? That’s a new fetish for me.

    Can you IMAGINE what is going through Claire’s mind when she finds out what Jamie’s living arrangements are??? I mean, she says she know he had to have a life for the past 20 years, but living in brothel?

    Talk about an emotional whirl wind! I don’t know if I can keep up with this episode. So much tension and awkward and serious conversation.

    Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo worst cock block ever! Hahahaha! That maid has impeccable timing.

    Is it just me, or do Claire and Jamie seem more awkward and unsure now than they did on their wedding night?

    And it starts. Bow chicka wow wow! Took long than I was expecting TBH, but it’s kind of nice that they are taking things slowly.
    I mean, it would be strange. They’ve wanted each other for 20 years and they can finally have one another again. It must be terrifying to wonder if they are the same people or they really remember one another.

    I know we’ve seen it many times over the last three seasons, but close ups of Jamie’s back still get me. Jesus. Makes me want to do unspeakably violent things to Jack Randall.

    Well now that’s romantic Claire.

    And he doesn’t know what a bicycle is!!!!!!

    Goddamn Mr. Heughan! That is a mighty fine bottom.
    Can we all just take a moment to admire this man??

    Oh shit. She said she’s with him as long as he doesn’t to anything amoral…….Does he tell her about.. YOU KNOW now? Or does he save that bombshell for a non-post-coital moment?

    [Edit] He said nothing! Wow. So he blurts out about Willie and England and zips his lips on THAT OTHER MAJOR LIFE DETAIL. I guess we’re going to have to wait for a future episode to unveil that tidbit. Claire’s reaction is gonna be priceless.

    I’m going to go mush for a moment and just say this:
    It’s so unbelievably and heart-wrenchingly sweet to watch them discover each other again. Just taking each other in. The way they can look at each other or just touch fingers. It’s like they just get lost in each other. <3 <3

    That might be the most ridiculously awkward way to meet your aunt ever conceived in fiction.

    I’m sorry, can we take a moment to discuss that conversation???
    Your nether mouth?
    You’ll nay get a squeaker?

    Also a sponge with vinegar?!?!? No wonder these women lived such short lives. Why would anyone think to put that ….. there???

    YOU LEAVE US WITH THAT ENDING?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?
    What the hell am I supposed to do with that?!
    I don’t know what to think now. I thought this episode would leave me all happy and feeling all romantic. Like for once in this goddamned story everything was ok and the characters were going to be alright.
    Now I don’t know what to think. GOD DAMMIT IT!
