This Saturday's episode of "Outlander" will see Claire going to great lengths to save her husband Jamie, who has been arrested for duelling with Black Jack Randall in the previous episode of the time-travel drama.
Warning: This article contains spoilers from the upcoming episode of "Outlander."
Season 2 episode 7 is titled "Faith" and it will see Claire requesting the King to pardon Jamie. Claire is granted an audience with Louis, and he agrees to pardon Jamie if Claire uses her powers as La Dame Blanche to judge two men who have been accused of practising the dark arts. Claire must choose between Comte St Germain and Master Raymond, and she declares that St Germain is associated with a group called Les Disciples du Mal. She will also sleep with the King for pardoning Jamie.
"Claire feels she is equal to anyone," Caitriona Balfe stated, according to Vulture. "She doesn't accept that there is a hierarchy, and I love that about her. Even with the king, she is aware that she has to maneuver through certain parameters, but at the same time, she feels very justified. It is an amazing scene where she goes, and asks for Jamie's freedom. Claire realizes that there is a price to pay, but she's willing to do it. Just for her to get Jamie back, that's worth anything."
As for Claire and Jamie's unborn child, if "Outlander" follows "Dragonfly in Amber," the second book in the "Outlander" series written by Diana Gabaldon, then the duo will lose their baby. In the book, Claire names the baby Faith, which is also the title of episode 7.
The synopsis for next week's episode, according to Carter Matt, reads: "Claire is brought to L'Hopital Des Anges where doctors try to save her life and that of her unborn baby. King Louis asks Claire to judge two men accused of practising the dark arts – one an enemy, one a friend."
"Outlander" airs Saturdays on Starz. The series stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan as Claire and Jamie respectively. CLICK HERE to watch the episode live online.
