I say we kill her,

leave her for the beasts.

You know Fraser's got
his hands full for a while.

CLAIRE: Well that was you.

Well, aren't you
the clever one...

Dr. Rawlings?

You never thought
anyone'd find out

about your little
newspaper column, did you?

Well, now you're gonna repent
for your sin.

I was just trying to help.

Spreading dangerous ideas,
what you mean...

telling women
how to deceive their husbands,

how to deny them
their God-given rights,

telling my wife to avoid my bed.

And I'm gonna take you
to Brownsville,

and you're gonna confess
to the womenfolk there,

and they're gonna see you
for the charlatan that you are.

Happy Thanksgiving, Uncle.

[ yelps ]

[ cries out ]

You fucking bastard!

[ whimpers ] You're going to go
to hell for this.

It's a curse!

Hodge, you've done it now.

Don't touch that woman
and don't draw her blood.

We did hear talk of her.
She's a conjure woman.

CLAIRE:
That's right.

You touch me again,

and you'll all be dead by dawn!

I said don't do it!

She will kill us all!

LIONEL:
That's enough, both of you.

Just tie her up over there.

WENDIGO:
So where do you come from?

CLAIRE:
You know where I come from.

You bloody kidnapped me.

Where did you come from
before you settled here?

Do you have clear night skies
where you come from?

I can't tell one star
from another
like some people can.

The Moon... that's the same
wherever you go.

Looks like a man on the moon...

staring back at us.

Well, her legs aren't tied.

TEBBE: You hungry?

Go on.

My name is Tebbe.

You remember that. Remember me was good to you.

You tell your spirits
they don't hurt Tebbe.

He tried to help you.

Thank you, Tebbe.

Tebbe, how much longer
before we reach Brownsville?

TEBBE: Two days after we cross the creek.

[ breathes deeply ]

We will swim the horses across.

You will come with me.

You shouldn't go with them.

Lionel Brown, Hodgepile...
They're all going to die...

and everyone with them.

You've heard
of the water horses,
the kelpies?

They take you down, drown you,
and eat you.

Yes, yes, but the water horse
is my friend,

and if-if you just...

W-when we're across the creek,
you-you let me go.

It'll rise up and carry me away.

Just-just let go of me
in the water,

and I swear it won't cause you
any harm.

Thank you.

- No, no!

I'm going with him!

[ coughing, wheezes ]

[ gasping ]

Does the name Ringo Starr
mean anything to you?

What?

Does the name Ringo Starr
mean anything to you?

[ dramatic music ]



[ gasps ]
H-he's a drummer.

I knew you had to be.
I knew it. I knew it.

I knew that advice
from Dr. Rawlings

didn't come from anybody
in this time.

I just never thought I'd find
another one, not ever.

Please, untie me.

I can't.

You know what they're planning.

It's mostly just talk.

[ sobs ]

They think you're a witch.
They're scared to death of you.

- I know you're not.
- [ distant laughter ]

Who are you?

CLAIRE:
You know who I am.

Who are you?

My name's Wendigo Donner.

I traveled back with a group
of American Indians from 1968.

Otter Tooth.

Robert Springer.

You know Bob?

Where is he?

He's dead.



How?

The Mohawk.

- They killed him.
- That doesn't make sense.

- We came back to save them.
- Come on.

I'll tell you everything I know.

Just, please...

cut me loose.

Get two horses, and let's go.

Lionel, he'll... he's crazy.

He'll kill me.
He'll kill both of us.

Okay?
I need to get home.

I've been trying for too long.

I need gemstones.

I have gemstones.

I know where a stone circle is.

You cut me loose,
I'll get you home.

Forget the horses.
Let's go now.

Okay.
We need to wait.

- We need to wait
until they fall asleep.
- LIONEL: Donner!

What the hell you doing
down there?

Just making sure
she's tied tight!

Please, let's go.

- I should've known
what you were...
- [ laughter ]

Before Dr. Rawlings...

Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ.

You don't act afraid of men.

Most of the women from now do.

You ought to act more afraid.

No, no.

I'm grateful

Ye've held my soul

Mrs. Fraser?

Yes.

We're sorry to have to tell you
this at Thanksgiving, but...

Mr. and Mrs. MacKenzie
were killed in a car accident

with their child.

[ dramatic music ]

Oh.

The conditions on the highway
were extremely treacherous.



A truck lost its brakes.

There was a collision involving Mr. MacKenzie's vehicle.

No...

OFFICER:
Paramedics arrived and worked

to save him and his family,

but, unfortunately,
their injuries were fatal.

No...



[ wind gusting ]

[ dramatic music ]

- I woke up!
- [ Brianna coughs ]



Mom, Da?

Are ye all right?

I just feel like I've been
turned inside out.



BRIANNA:
We made it.

Aye.
[ exhales deeply ]

JEMMY:
Look.



[ both breathing heavily ]



What the devil?

Ye're back.



How?



I-I don't know.

I was thinking about home.

So was I.



[ upbeat music ]



We can make camp here,
or we can forge ahead.

Oh, let's make camp and rest.

We can surprise them tomorrow.

Roger, will you grab Jem?

[ dramatic music ]

Da lit the cross.

Oh, God.



Aye. He said he wouldn't light
it again unless...



Let's go.



I've packed some salted meats
for you and the men, sir.

Thank you, Lizzie.



Bree.

Roger.

What happened?

It... it didn't work.
What is going on?

On the way back,
we saw the cross.

There's been an attack
on the ridge.

They've taken your mother.



I think it was the Browns.

We're gonna get her back.

- I'm coming with you.
- JAMIE: No.

Brianna, it's too dangerous.

- BRIANNA: Dad...
- You'll stay here

with the rest of the men,
guard the ridge.

JOSIAH:
I'd want to come.

I'm a fine shot.

Ye said so yerself.

It's not war.

It's for Mistress Claire.

Then I'm coming, too.

You called me

at the gathering, at the fire.

Stand by my side,
son of my house.

Did you mean that?

Ye ken I did.

Well, I meant it, too.

There are times for men of peace

and a time for men of blood.



I will stand by you.

[ breathing heavily ]

[ whimpering ]

[ melancholy music ]



[ sobs softly ]



You are alive.

You are whole, mo nighean donn?



There are some left still alive.

[ Claire whimpers ]



Will you have your vengeance
upon them, Mistress?

[ whimpers ]

She's bound by an oath.

She may not kill,

for her own life.

It is myself that kills for her.

And I.



And I, milady.



Who?

How many?



I don't know.



Kill them all.

[ dark music ]



[ men groaning ]



[ gunshot ]

[ blades plunging,
men screaming ]



[ gunshots, men screaming ]



It is done.



[ gentle music ]



You see that they are dead.



MYERS:
Jamie, this one's alive.

[ cocks gun ]

Wait!
Don't kill him yet.

It's Lionel.

[ dark music ]



There are questions.

Aye.

Ask them now,
or take him with us?



[ groans ]



I want to take Claire home.



We'll go on ahead.

You and Myers bring him with you.

MYERS:
Aye.

[ dramatic music ]



Marsali?

She's alive, Sassenach.

She and the baby.

Felt it kicking strong
in her belly.

Geordie's dead.

Was there an Indian there?

No.

Why do you ask?

He was like me...

From the future.

Did he harm you?

He didn't help me.

He's gone now...

Whoever he was.

I thought I saw Roger.

My mind is playing tricks on me.

No.

Ye didna imagine it.

Roger, Bree, Jemmy...

[ tender music ]

They've come home.



[ wagon wheels rattling ]



[ footsteps departing,
descending stairs ]



I thought
I'd never see you again.

Shh.
Mom...

I'm home.



[ exhales deeply ]



[ brush scraping ]

[ breathes shakily ]

You have my hand, Mama,
and my ear,

if you need it.

[ door closes ]

[ breathes deeply ]

[ footsteps approach,
door opens ]

[ door closes ]

The sight of you
tears my heart...

fills me full of rage.

I feel...

I feel I must kill someone.

Lionel.

Is he still...

In the surgery, tied up.

The men gave him
quite a beating.

I'll ask questions
and have answers...

find out
what they were planning.

Will you let him live?

Is your oath so strong, then?

[ mournful music ]



I'm glad the others are dead.



I'm sorry that I am.



I don't want you to worry
about me.

Ah, I'm just a little shaken.

Claire, I ken
what it feels like...

No.

No, I have lived

through a fucking world war...

and I have lost a child.



I lost two husbands.

I've been starved with an army,

and I-I've been beaten,
and I've been betrayed,

and I've... [ sobs ] I've...

I've been imprisoned,
and I will not...



I survived.



And this...



I am supposed to be shattered
by this?



Well, I won't be.



I won't...
[ sobs ]



[ sobs ]



[ door opens ]

- [ door closes ]
- Sorry.

I didn't mean to wake you.

How's Claire?

Was she able to...

Was she able to...
To talk about it?

No.

[ sighs ]

It's still so raw.

Though, to be honest,
I don't know if she ever will.

[ sighs ]
Maybe she'll tell Da someday.

What a horrific combination
of words for anyone to have
to find within themselves...

And utter to another being.

[ somber music ]



[ both sigh ]



You haven't asked me
what happened.

Did your father tell you?



No.



Brianna...

I...

Hey.

What's wrong?



Will ye hear me?

[ exhales deeply ]

You know I will.



What is it?

Listen to what I must tell you,

and then please, God,
tell me I have done right.



You don't have
to tell me anything.

I do.



Will you put out the candle?



I-I killed a man.



[ birds chirping ]

[ uneasy music ]



[ Lionel wheezes ]



[ Lionel groans ]

- Have mercy on me.
- Be quiet.

What do you think this is,
if not mercy?

LIONEL:
Can you at least
loosen my bonds?

MARSALI:
Quiet.



Don't let him kill me...

that husband of yours.



Marsali...

can you steep the comfrey...

- and prepare the syringe?
- Aye.

[ wheezes ]

MARSALI:
Wasting good medicine
on the likes of you.



[ groaning ]

I implore you, Mistress Fraser.

Please...



[ Lionel wheezes ]



I will do you no harm.



[ cries ]

[ sobbing ]

What about a little bit of mercy

on my poor old appetite?

Ye'll take what ye get,
when ye get it.

I always do.

[ chuckles ]

You might want
to watch your words.

I hardly think I need to worry
about that, now, do I?

Damn women.

I prefer my supper with a smile,

thank you very much.

So, when you're good
and ready...

[ wheezes ]

[ sighs ]

And, you know...

if I'm not well treated,

my brother... he will come
with his men,

and he will slaughter you

and burn the houses
over your heads
while you sleep.

Well...

we must make sure
you return home
hale and strong.

[ grunts ]

What's that for?

I've been learning
the art of healing.

Mistress Fraser
has taught me well.

[ grunts ]

She took an oath

to do no harm.

[ grunts ]

I have taken no such oath.



You hurt me.
You hurt my family.

You hurt my ma.

I'll watch you burn in hell

before I let you harm
another soul in this house.

[ grunts ]

[ suspenseful music ]

[ dramatic music ]



[ footsteps approaching ]

JAMIE: Marsali?



[ grunts softly ]

He thought me no better
than the dirt under his boot.



A mere woman of no consequence.



What's done is done.

Will this...

Will-will he... is he...

Will he haunt me?

Shh, shh, shh.

Mm, am I going to hell?

[ cries ]

Nothing to fear, lass.

Here.



[ indistinct chatter ]



Fraser's here.



[ breathing heavily ]

Fraser?

A band of men came upon my land.

They abducted
and violated my wife.

I followed them...

killed them all.

I brought you your brother...

so you may bury him.

I thank you for that.

Lionel...

He reaped what he sowed.

And you did what you must.

As will I...

[ ominous music ]

When the time comes.



JAMIE:
I have lived through war

and lost much.

I know what's worth a fight
and what is not.

Honor and courage
are matters of the bone.

And what a man will kill for,
he'll sometimes die for, too.

[ indistinct chatter ]



A man's life springs
from his woman's bones,

and in her blood
is his honor christened.

For the sake of love alone

will I walk through fire again.

[ dog barks ]

ROGER:
There was a time
not so long ago

that I wasn't sure
we'd ever be walking up
to this house again.

But here we are.

We always seem to be
on the road less traveled.

Nothing is ever easy.

"I shall be telling this
with a sigh

"somewhere ages and ages hence.

"Two roads diverged
in a wood, and I?

"I took the one
less traveled by,

and that has made
all the difference."

[ indistinct chatter,
dog barking ]

- Show-off.
- [ chuckles ]

We certainly have tried
to take a few different roads.

Are you disappointed?

No.

We wanted the stones
to take us home,

and they did.

[ man chuckles ]

[ footsteps ascending stairs ]

[ indistinct chatter ]

That post is crooked.

Is that all?

- I'll mend it now.
- No.

We'll wait until tomorrow.

Let's just enjoy this...

ordinary day.

Oh, who knows how much longer
we'll have this peace,

knowing what's coming?

Aye.

Aye, the Revolution.

The bravest are surely those
with the clearest vision

of what is before them...

Glory, danger alike...

Yet notwithstanding,

go out to meet it.

That was Thucydides
who said that, not me.

[ thunder rumbling ]

Well, you'd know
all about that,
wouldn't you?

Ah, it's only brave
when there's a choice
ye must make.

[ tender music ]

Well, we'll meet it
the best we can.

[ thunder rumbling ]



I love you.



When the day shall come
that we do part...

If my last words
are not "I love you,"

ye ken it's because
I didna have time.



[ thunder rumbles ]



[ thunder rumbling ]



[ rain pattering ]



[ thunder booming ]

[ Claire sighs ]

Christ.

Ye're a brave wee thing.

[ chuckles ]

Am I?

Aye.

How do you feel?

Safe.
