Outlander (2014–…): Season 3, Episode 3 - All Debts Paid - full transcript

In prison, Jamie discovers that an old foe has become the warden - and now has the power to make his life a living hell. Over the years, Claire and Frank both put their best foot forward to...

..for me any longer.

Have ye not seen the inside of
enough prisons for one lifetime?

Tell him ye heard from me.

He'll now know once and for all
you have no allegiance

to Red Jamie.

John Grey is my brother.

He owed you
a debt of honor.

Can't even shoot the bastard.

If ye believe yer wife
to be a witch,

then who am I
to contradict ye?

It's another vision.

Madame Blanche,
the white lady.

We'll raise the child
as our own, with a father.

A living, breathing man.

Where'd she get
the red hair?

Claire, when I'm with you,
I'm with you,

but you're with him.

I threw myself into
my new role as best I could,

but there was still
something missing.

I knew eventually I would
need to do something more.

Is that what I think it is?

It is.

A full English breakfast.

- Black pudding?
- Ah, fingers off.

And bread fried in bacon fat?

- Of course.
- What's the occasion?

Well, Brianna came home
from school the other day

and asked for Eggo
toaster waffles,

so I've decided she needs
more Englishness in her life.

And your plan is what?
Are you going to feed

the Americanness out of her?

Well, it's either that

or I replace her beloved
Dr. Seuss with Dickens.

- Mm.
- Brianna, breakfast is ready.

Oh, that's delicious.
I've missed that.

Perhaps I'm onto something.

You know,
I don't have class tonight,

and I've read about as much
as I can about gallbladders.

Maybe we could go
see a film later.

Joe said "The Searchers"
is fantastic.

- Um...
- Or, you know,

if you're not in the mood
for a western,

we could go see "Carousel."

No, that sounds...
That sounds lovely.

I've seen them both.

Oh, both, really?


Oh, um...

- Uh, we...
- No, no, I'm... I'm sorry.

- We agreed we were free to...
- No, of course.

I'm... I'm being discreet,

Yes, you are.
Thank you.

- There she is.
- For you.

Oh, that's wonderful, darling.

Really lovely.

♪♪ Gaelic music...

Is it always so gloomy?

Chin up, My Lord.

The drink here
is fine compensation.

I left you a list
of booze-merchants.

Paperwork's the worst
of the duty.

After that there's not
a great deal to do, really,

save to hunt for grouse

and Frenchman's Gold.

The fortune in bullion
that Louis of France

sent to Charles Stuart?

They say the Highland army

hid it somewhere
on the moor.

I was captivated by it
my first year,

determined to find it.

But after a few years I finally
yielded to my better senses.

However, the man that does
deliver a treasure such as that

to London

would certainly have the
attention of the Crown.

I understand the prisoners to be
mostly Jacobite Highlanders.

Yes, and docile as sheep.

No heart in them
after Culloden.

God, I'll be glad to get back
to civilization.

Not much in the way
of local society, I gather?

My dear fellow.

"Society" will consist solely

of conversation
with your officers...

and one prisoner.

A prisoner?

You'll not have heard
of Red Jamie Fraser?

Of course. The man was notorious
during the Rising.

Well, we have him.

He's the only
Jacobite officer here

and the only man
we keep chained.

Lasted as a fugitive
for six years after Culloden.

Prisoners treat him
as their chief.

They call him Mac Dubh.

I don't know what it means,
a sign of respect of some sort.

If matters arise,
he acts as their spokesman.

Guards are all afraid of him.

Those that fought at Prestonpans
say he's the Devil himself.

Poor Devil now.

You'll need Fraser's
good will and cooperation.

I had him take supper with me
once a week.

You might try
a similar arrangement.

I'll not dine with that...


As you wish.

Well, I'll leave you to it.

Good luck, Major.

Have ye seen
ye're new governor yet?

I had a look at him
in the yard.

We havena spoken.

Well, better the Devil ye ken,
than the Devil ye don't.

Mac Dubh,
am I wrong?

No, Hayes, ye're no' wrong.

I canna say
if ye're right yet.

For you, Mac Dubh.

So ye've seen
the new governor, then?

Is that what the neep-heids
were blathering about?

I've seen him.

Seems familiar.

I canna place him.

Name is Grey.

Matters not.

All the mollies look alike.

Take God's own eye
to tell one from another.

They say the same
about us.

They could tell well enough

if they allowed us
to wear our tartans.

Best tuck that away.

Ye know the punishment
for having it.


So ye took no measure
of the man?

He's gey young.

Looks scarce more
than a bairn.

Carries himself well.

Shoulders square...

and a ramrod up his arse.

The ramrod is standard issue
in the British army.

Ye've been bitten again.


The rats are growing
uncommon bold.

This'll help
with the festering.

And la grippe as well.

Och, not more
of yer damn thistles.

Do ye think me a pig?

Stubborn as one.

It's only milk thistle.

Take the heads off,

mash the leaves, stems.

I learnt the trick from...

a lass...

who knew a fair amount

about healing.

The prisoner, sir,
as commanded.

James Fraser.


I am Major John William Grey,

the governor of this prison.

I believe you and Colonel Quarry
had an understanding.

We did.

I would like
to continue that.

You acting as spokesman
for the prisoners.


Where would you like
your supper served, sir?

In here, prisoner,
if you please.

Damn my eyes!
It's after my supper.

Has the prison got a cat?

There're cats
in the storerooms.

Well, fetch one up here
at once.

Are there many rats
in the cells?

Great many.

They sometimes scurry
across my chest

whilst I'm sleeping, sir.

If you will, MacKay, please
ensure that each prison cell

is provided
with its own cat.

Something the matter,

With respect, sir,

I dinna think the men would care
to have a cat

takin' all their rats.

Surely, the prisoners
don't eat them?

Only when they're lucky enough
to catch one.

♪♪ Soft music...


God knows what you did
to be sent here,

but for your own sake,

I hope you deserved it.

Will that be all then, sir?


For now.

a bit higher.

Three, two, one,

Very good.
All right, who's next, maestro?

Just you and Mommy now.

Me and Mommy.

Mm, all right,
all right.

Darling, shouldn't you be
leaving for Fontaine's?

I don't want you
to miss your reservation.

- There's plenty of time.
- Really?

It's for seven.

You're coming with us,
aren't you, Daddy?

Uh, I wish I could,
my angel,

but, um, I have some work
I need to finish.

If you're not going,
I'm not going.

- Bree?
- You'll have a lovely time,

I promise.

I thought the reservation
was at six.

No. Sorry, it's seven.

Don't worry, we'll be out
of your hair soon enough.

- Calling Dr. Randall.
- Oh, excuse me.

Dr. Joe's salvation elixir.

Is this your
prescription for everything?

Nothing a cold martini
won't cure.


Mm, you are going to be
a horrible doctor.

Oh, may I help you?


I'm sorry. I...


Bree, go and play.

Your work, I presume?

Here, my darling.
Everyone... I have an idea.

Why don't we go
to the restaurant now?

And if they can't
seat us early,

we'll just entertain ourselves
at the bar.

♪♪ Gaelic music...


- Speaking Gaelic ...
- The Devil?

Bring me that man!

Who are you, sir?
How do you come by this place?

The gold is cursed.

Did he just say gold?

Take him with us.

The gold...
The gold is cursed.

Mr. Fraser.

Thank you for coming.

I summoned you because
a situation has arisen

in which I require
your assistance.

And what might that be, sir?

A man named Duncan Kerr has been
found wandering the moor

near the coast.

He appears to be
gravely ill,

near death even,
and his speech is deranged.

However, certain matters to
which he refers

appear to be of...

substantial interest
to the Crown.

the man in question

has been heard to babble in a
mixture of Gaelic and French,

with no more than a word
or two of English.

And you would like
my assistance

to... translate what this man
might have to say?

I've been told you speak
both Gaelic and French.

We haven't much time.

I fear I must decline, sir.

Might I inquire as to why,
Mr. Fraser?

I'm a prisoner.

Not an interpreter.

Mr. Fraser,
if you do what I ask,

I will have your irons
struck off.

I understand you've been wearing
them for three years.

I can't imagine how heavy
they must feel.

I have, however,
two conditions.

You give a full and true account
of whatever the fellow says,

and you relay to no one,
save me,

any information you glean.

And I have but one condition,

That you provide blankets
and medicine

for all the men
that are ill.

A most ambitious request.

We're in short supply of both

and I can't possibly
bring that about.

Then this conversation
is over, sir.

Return the irons if you must.

Mr. Fraser,
believe me when I tell you

that I would honor
your request...

if I were able.

I would settle
for one man, then.

My kinsman,
Murtagh Fitzgibbons.

He's been struggling
to survive here

ever since Culloden.

I will inquire
as to what we have in stores.

Then you have a bargain, sir.

You invited her here?

Where our daughter lives.

You were taking the car,

so she was... she was
just picking me up, huh.

You really dislike me
that much?

It's my graduation,
for God's sake, Frank.

You humiliated me
in front of my new colleagues.

Oh, welcome to the club.

What the hell
does that mean?

Keep your voice down.
You'll wake Brianna.

- What does that mean?
- It mean...

It means you're not as good
an actress

as you think you are,

Do you honestly think
anyone at Harvard

believes that
we're happily married?

You've convinced no one.

And let's not forget,

it was your idea
to lead separate lives.

Yes, but you agreed
to be discreet.

And having your blonde harlot

show up on our doorstep
is quite the opposite of that.

Do not call her that.

Sandy has a Ph.D. fellowship
in historical linguistics.

- She's no fucking harlot.
- Does she?

Well, I'm sure you two will have
plenty to discuss, then.

Oh, are you jealous now?

Green ain't your color,

Oh, go to hell.

You knew how important
today was to me.

You did this deliberately.

You wanted to hurt me.

Maybe I did.

Maybe I wanted to give you
a taste of your own medicine,

Dr. Randall.

Have you fucked her
in our bedroom?

Have you?

I think our bedroom
is far too crowded already.

Wouldn't you agree?


Let's stop with the pretense,

File for divorce.


Why not?

You'd have your freedom.


I would.

When Jerry divorced Millie a...
A year ago,

he... he gained his freedom,

but he lost his children
for it.

The court ruled that a...
A child needs a mother

more than his father.

He rarely sees them now.

I will not let that happen
to Brianna and me.

I would never
keep Bree from you.

Well, we could

- work out a compromise.
- Forgive me, Claire,

if I don't risk everything
on your promises.

You have not been very good
at keeping them.

Anything else
you'd like to discuss...

while we're here?

Jesus Christ.

Oh, there is a reason
why we are so...

terribly bad at charades,
my darling.

White witches?

That's it?

You're holding back.

I keep my bargains, sir.

Do you, Mr. Fraser?

I suspect there is more

Because you're not getting one.

This is worse

It's all I can manage.

What happened with Kerr?

His speech was a mad rant,

not much made sense.

Said the gold was cursed.

Mentioned something about...

Get on with it
before I die of old age.

A white witch...

who had, uh,
some connection to the gold.

A white witch?

And ye're thinking...

after all these years?

Of course not.

But is it even possible?

I dinna ken.

I wish we could know
what became of her

once you sent her
through the stones.

Wishing will no
bring her back.

But I think of her

every now and then.

And the wee bairn
that she was carrying.

Try not to think of it.

It will only bring ye
pain and suffering.

Can I at least
pray them sound?

- Fraser, get up.
- Aye.

That ye can.

I am told you used to dine
with Colonel Quarry.

I trust you'll do me
the same honor now.

You think yer pleasantness
will loosen my tongue?

Of course I didn't mean...

Ye can return me to the cells,
if ye have that in mind.

Mr. Fraser, I only ask
for you to dine with me

in attempt to forge a connection
between us

better suited
to our situation here.



Then I'll ask your leave

to hunt for ourselves;

since the Crown cannot supply
the men with adequate food.

A hunt?

Gi... give you weapons and allow
you to wander the moors?

God's teeth, Mr. Fraser.

Not weapons.

And not wandering.

Give us leave to set snares
upon the moor

when we're cutting peats.

And keep such meat
as we take.

We could also gather
watercresses, sir.

- What for?
- To eat.


Well, eating green plants
will stop ye getting scurvy.

Wherever did you
get that notion?

From my wife.

You're married?

She's gone.

We checked behind that brush.

Are you sure the patrol
caught sight of him here?

Yes, sir. Thought they saw him
swimming out to the islands.

I want the cliffs searched
in both directions.

Keep an eye out
for boats below.

God knows there's room enough
to hide a sloop

behind some
of those islands.

If he went in anywhere
along this stretch, Major,

you'll have seen
the last of him.

Sir, it's been three days now.

I do not need reminding,

Remain here until nightfall,

then return to the moor.

Yeah, that's how it's done,
William Grey,

second son
of Viscount Melton.

How long did it take
yer comrades to find ye

after we tied ye
to that tree?

Were ye there so long
as to shite yerself?

- You remembered.
- Aye.

After ye called me
to yer quarters that first day.

I tend to remember anyone
who tries to slit my throat.

Why did you not
speak of it before?

I was waiting
for the proper occasion.

Why did ye not remind me?

I think you know why.

Maybe indifferent
to yer own welfare,

but... perhaps ye may have
some concern

for this lady's honor, huh?

- Huh?
- All right!

Release the lady and...

I will tell you
whatever you wish.

They were the actions
of a foolish boy

and I regret them
to this very day.

The mere memory of them
burns shame into my gut.

But fortunately for you,

my foolishness at Corrieyairack
saved your life at Culloden.

Did it not?


Your brother Lord Melton
was an honorable gentleman.

And my family debt to you
has been discharged.

But not yer promise.


When last we parted...

you vowed...

I owe you my life.

I should hope to discharge
that debt in the future.

And once it is discharged,

I will kill you.

I am not a murderer

I told ye faithfully all

What I didna tell ye

What meaning was that?

I spoke to you of my wife.

You said she was dead.

I said she was gone.

She was a healer.

A white lady.

The word in Gaelic
is ban-druidh.

It also means witch.

The white witch.

So the man's words
referred to your wife?

I thought they might be.

And if so, uh, I had to go
to see for myself.

There was nothing there
to do with her.

She is truly gone.

And the gold, Mr. Fraser?

King Louis never sent gold
to the Stuarts.

All I found was a

empty box
save for one jewel.

It is a moving story,
Mr. Fraser.

Yet there is no evidence

Do you find your life

not greatly so.

Not in having no one

That is...


But no great burden.

She was.



Her name was Claire.

You cared for her very much,

all those years ago.

Now I give you yours.

I hope you use it well.

Yer brother discharged
that debt.

For the sake
of the family name.

I discharge it
for the sake of my own.

Now, Mr. Fraser,

let's be on our way.

♪♪ Sweeping orchestral music...


Frances is in recovery.

She's stable,
and her vitals are good.

The best thing you can do
for her now

is get some rest.

Thank you.

It's Frank.

There's been a car accident.

♪♪ Soft music...


Oh, Frank.

If you're still close enough
to hear me,

I did love you.

Very much.

You were my first love.
