Claire learns the dangers of seeking out changelings in new OUTLANDER clip.
As a nurse, Claire feels strongly about ensuring the health and well-being of everyone. However, her 20th century sensibilities don’t always mesh well with 18th century Scottish folklore. In “By The Pricking Of My Thumbs”, Claire’s tolerance for the culture of her new era will be tested when she hears a child crying in the woods. As Geillis Duncan explains in a new clip from the episode, the Scottish believe abandoned children are actually changelings sent by the Fae (aka faeries) to disrupt society.
Can Claire allow a helpless child to die to keep up appearances? Or will she suffer the consequences of ignoring the myth instead?
