Starting the episode off with an unknown woman dressing Jamie was a bit brave I think. But alas, it shows Jamie walking down the road, then heading to his press shop where he runs into some of his people that work for him and it shows him using the press, which to me, as a newspaper journalist, makes me a bit giddy.

But then Claire shows up and he passes out and of COURSE it shows the credits when that happens.

But the look on Jamie’s face when Claire hands him the photos, he’s taken aback. And then he pulls out the glasses, he looks embarrassed to put them on in front of her and it’s so cute.

And Claire tells him about her hair and the gray to make him feel better.

But when he starts to look at the photos, his curiosity is so cute. He’s wanting to know what her first words were and then he freaks out over her bikini. It’s so funny because she’s sitting there with a boy.

It shocked me when he told her about Willie. I’ve been listening to the book, and I don’t think he told her. But I loved Claire’s response to it.

It also cracks me up that Claire tells Jamie about Prince Charles Edward Stewart considering my ancestor is the one that dressed him as a girl and helped him escape.

But forget that…. FERGUS!

GROWN FERGUS!

And then Fergus gets down right shady.. “What about….” Has to be about youknowho.

And Mr. Willoughby. That is not how I had him envisioned in my head. I expected him to be a little younger and a little shorter and fatter, but that’s what I mentioned in my head.

This is the first time I’ve heard/red something before watching it on the show so it’s a bit different for me. I’ve always just bed show only until two weeks ago when I just HAD to know what happens next and got the audio book.

Oh but back to the whore house, that lady that was dressing Jamie at the beginning of the episode did NOT like that he had a wife. She almost seemed a little hurt. And Claire seems totally WTF’d about the fact that he has a room at a brothel and I can’t say that I blame her. I was, also.

And to be honest, the rest of the episode is pretty much just sex. And granted, everybody loves that. Let’s be real, but it’s all sex. There’s talking of course, but there’s sex. Several times.

Then again if you haven’t seen someone in 20 years, I guess you’d want to have it a lot, right?

Although, I did enjoy the conversation they had after Jamie got out of bed and Claire laid there as he talked. He just wouldn’t tell her what he did for a living, besides being a printer.

More sex. More sex. More sex.

YOUNG IAN! He looks exactly like I pictured in my head. Except more smiley. But he actually looks like a mixture of Jenny and Ian.

But Claire goes and eats and some strange dude is in Jamie’s room.

AND THAT’S IT!

This was a really damn good episode. I don’t feel like it lived up to my expectations though. Maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to the book. Maybe it’s because I could really do without all the sex scenes. But I wish there had been more discussions and talking about everything that had happened in the last 20 years.

I know there’s plenty of time for that, but hey, a TV show only lasts so many episodes.

I think this was a really great episode, maybe not as good as the last, but nonetheless, it made the story move along and made the characters move towards finding one another again. It was different than the past few episodes and was more emotional than action-packed. I enjoyed it.

It’s been two weeks since I last posted anything on the site, which really might be a new record. Things have been pretty crazy.

On Friday, July 7, my Mom had her leg amputated. It wasn’t right up to the knee, but a little lower than midway in the calf. Since then, she’s been doing a lot better and has entered in-hospital therapy so she can get used to everything with therapy. At first, her insurance that manages her Medicare didn’t want to approve it and I had to take matters in my own hands.

To say the least, she’s in the therapy now. Right? That’s all that matters.

The Saturday after the surgery, my aunt and uncle came to visit and Julia and then Julia and I went to Wahlburgers that’s a few miles from my apartment near the Braves’ new stadium. It was my first time there and it was A-MAZING. I will be going back, for sure. Then Julia surprised me with a Boyz II Men VIP for my birthday (and that will all come in a concert review post!)

She’s been there for me in so many ways that I know I could never repay her or do enough to show her how thankful I am for her.

It was good to get away for a bit, but when I’m not at the hospital lately, I’ve been working to make up hours that I missed during the week. I worked this past Saturday because I had to take Friday off for the concert with Lacy and Julia.

It’s just been a very hectic for weeks and I really, really hope that with this surgery, that my Mom’s health gets better and this is the last of the hospital we see for a while.

In the midst of all this hospital waiting, I joined Ancestory.com and have been retracing my family’s history and found some pretty cool stuff.

As we all know, I love the show “Outlander.” If you don’t know about it, it’s on STARZ and is based off a series of books.

Turns out on my mother’s father’s side of the family, that they are Scottish and had a role in the British rebellion with various battles, including the Battle of Culloden, which was led by Prince Charles Edward Stewart. Turns out, my 8th or 9th times cousin, Flora MacDonald, was the one that let Prince Charles hide in her house after the British beat and killed a great deal of the Scottish (including members of my family). And, Flora is featured in the books that the show is based on. How great is that?

I have a lot of things I need to do this week such as:

  • Write a post for BackstreetBoys.com
  • Get to work on #ProjectHowito
  • Write the Total Package Tour review for the site here

And I’m going to try to get it done.
