In this fifth episode, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) experience rising tensions in the colonies first-hand when they attend a Loyalist event in Wilmington in honor of Scottish Jacobite heroine Flora MacDonald (Shauna MacDonald), while Roger (Richard Rankin) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) overcome a disagreement about their place at the Ridge. “Give Me Liberty” is written by Barbara Stepansky and directed by Christiana Ebohon-Green.

“We have plenty to talk about, least of which is the episode opens on June 1746 Scotland and Bonnie Prince Charlie is being hastily whisked away from the rebellion, wearing a bonnet and a woman’s cloak,” Rob declares. “And I thought he looked fabulous,” he jokes.

“Yeah, I thought was pretty cool, but my question for you is what was your take on the opening credits?” Paula asks. “So, the opening credits have changed, and they were all in Gaelic and I thought they were really nice,” Rob replies, as the two take a deep dive into the myriad events of a plot-heavy episode at the half-way point of the season.

After their in-depth discussion, Rob and Paula introduce “Outlander” fan Stacy Henry, as part of their new initiative of inviting fans of the show onto their weekly recaps. Stacy shares her insights on what the show means to her, her favorite episode to date, and her thoughts on season 6 so far.
