Jamie and Claire attempt to outfox fate in “Best Laid Schemes” previews!
When a new enemy, Le Comte St. Germain, makes plans to donate to Prince Charles’ war chest, Claire and Jamie come up with a slick scheme to stop him this week on Outlander!
Stopping the Jacobite Rebellion hinges on some devious activity from The Frasers and they’re rising to the occasion on style in the trailer for “Best Laid Schemes”. But as the title, based on Scottish poet Robert Burns’ To A Mouse, “The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go oft awry.” And it doesn’t seem like plan against St. Germain will be the only major issue on the line.
This is also the episode where loyal Fraser relative Murtagh gets drawn into the bigger picture. He’s known since the Season 2 premiere that Claire and Jamie were out to stop the rebellion, but he never knew exactly why. In this clip, Claire is finally explaining where she came from, what she knows, and perhaps most importantly, what she doesn’t know about the Battle of Culloden.
Check out several new images from the episode below!
Outlander airs “Best Laid Schemes” on May 14, 2016.
“Jamie and Claire use Claire’s medical knowledge to devise a scheme to stop a wine deal which could fill the Prince’s war chest. When Claire learns Jamie has gone back on his word, the couple are met with dire consequences that will forever change their lives.”
