Those blue eyes.
Is it really such a stretch to imagine that Claire would fall in love with Jamie when she can literally swim inside of his eyes? When his first time out of the gate he's a fantastic lover?
Yet still Claire acts as though she needs convincing to wait for Jamie. "Promise me, Claire. Swear you'll be here when I get back!"
Who could resist that plea? Nobody, that's who and Claire knows it. It's not great romance if the woman doesn't act as if she's not all in, right?
Where is Jamie going? You'll have to watch Outlander Season 1 Episode 8 to find out.
Be back here on Saturday night for a full write up of Outlander, "Both Sides Now," and go watch Outlander online if you need to catch up on anythign you may have missed.
