Outlander (2014) s06e06 Episode Script

The World Turned Upside Down

1 - Previously - Yesterday we were saying how remarkable it is that you're a physician.
Others might accuse such a woman of witchcraft and the like.
Apparently, some of the new settlers think that I am a witch.
Why do you do these drawings? So that others can benefit from what I've learned.
- Like me? - Yes.
I want to spend my time with you and Jemmy.
- Just the three of us.
- Well, the four of us.
Patrick MacNeill.
This often, you'll have enough to feed a family of five.
Surely ye've suitors.
Lads swoon after you in droves; I've seen them.
Please, sir, ye'll say no such thing to my father.
I was only teasing, lass.
Miss Christie.
Surely you've done no wrong.
Looks can be deceiving.
Look around at your brethren here today.
None are all-knowing, all powerful, and of noble birth.
But God does not require brilliance or power or nobility for us to be true believers.
More often than not, those are the very things that keep us from trusting the Lord.
That is why God hath chosen what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, what is weak to confound the mighty, and what is low in the world to bring to nothing things that are.
Did you enjoy the service? I only noticed one person falling asleep.
Old Maggie MacCurley.
She's 80.
You're doin' a fine job, Roger Mac.
I appreciate that coming from you.
I know you weren't exactly pleased it was church.
It's only that I wanted it to be used for more than the Protestants' Sunday worship.
Oh, aye, it is.
Tom's been teachin' the children their letters here in the afternoons.
Have any of you seen Mr.
and Mrs.
MacNeill lately? No, why? They never miss a Sunday.
Well, you and I can stop by the cabin later and look in on them.
And maybe Lizzie and Malva would want to come along for the walk.
I'm sure Malva will.
She's been glued to your side ever since you started letting her help as your apprentice.
Well, she's doing very nicely actually, although I do miss Marsali.
I miss them all.
I think they'll do well in New Bern.
- Hmm.
- Fergus will be happy there.
He'll thrive in the print shop and be able to provide for his family.
Should have seen it sooner.
You love them.
You wanted to keep them near.
- There's no shame in that.
- Hmm.
Apparently, Maggie can sleep through anything.
I should have her look after June.
There's an awful smell.
Look at the crows.
Something's dead nearby.
MacNeill! Mr.
McNeill! Leave the door open.
We need as much light and air in here as possible.
Attend to the children first.
Come on, sweetheart.
Let's get you cleaned up.
Oh, my God.
The baby.
She's barely breathing.
They're dehydrated.
- What is this? - Not sure.
It could be food poisoning or something worse.
Don't touch your faces.
Here, Brianna, go to the stream, get some fresh water.
Get as much water as you can and boil it.
Lie down, lie down.
MacNeill? Mrs.
MacNeill, what happened? Here.
Take this.
Pour the water out into cups for them.
MacNeill! Mr.
- Mistress Claire.
- What happened? It's the bloody flux.
The water, mistress.
It came on so quickly.
Mistress, the baby won't drink anything.
MacNeill won't either.
- Our bairns.
- We're here.
We're going to take care of them.
- She can't she can't - Keep trying.
Damn it.
MacNeill, you must try to drink some water.
Ohh God damn it! Can ye stop cursin', Mistress? It's only the wee ones can hear.
We need to send blessings to Heaven, not curses.
Of course.
I'm sorry.
Ohh Hail Mary, full of grace No.
No, no don't go.
She's gone, Mistress.
Oh She wouldn't let her child go alone.
The water's on the fire.
Sing me a song Of a lad that is gone Say, could that lad Be I? Merry of soul He sailed on a day Over the sea To Skye Billow and breeze Islands and seas Mountains of rain and sun - All that was good - All that was good All that was fair All that was me Is gone Sing me a song Of a lass that is gone Say, could that lass Be I? Merry of soul She sailed on a day Over the sea To Skye There.
I think I've found our villain.
- Can I look? - Of course.
Do you see it? The clear, big thing in the middle.
- Lobed, with flecks in it? - I see it plainly.
Like a currant pudding someone's dropped on the floor with arms coming out of it.
Well, that's an amoeba.
That's what's been causing the bloody flux.
How can something so small cause such trouble in something so big as a person? 'Cause once it's inside your body, its only job is to kill cells.
What is weak shall confound the mighty.
Will we give the sick folk the penicillin then? No.
Unfortunately, penicillin isn't effective against amoebic dysentery.
And I don't really have anything except for herbs.
Where did this amoeba come from? It can be passed through tainted food or water, but usually it's contaminated water source.
Ogilvie's here.
He says his wife's fallen sick with the flux.
Ye must come quickly.
Malva, get me some bulbs of garlic and some honey - for honey water.
- At once, Mistress.
I'll head to the MacNeill property, look for the source.
I'll gather the settlers in the meeting house and warn them to wash their hands and boil water in the meantime.
Ask them to bring samples of water from their wells and springs.
Hopefully, we can get ahead of this before it spreads any further.
Thank you, Malva.
You've been a great help.
But Mistress Fraser, I'm coming with you.
It's a very contagious disease.
I'm coming with you.
We'll do what we can, but remember there is no cure.
I'm getting terribly tired of funerals.
I'm sorry we havena found out what's causing the sickness, but we willna give up.
No, we won't.
You look a bit like a ghost, Sassenach.
Havena slept for days and hardly pause for food.
Let me take you home.
I'm all right.
I wonder where the Sin-Eater is.
No one has seen him in a while.
Mama! - Oh, she's burning up.
- Help me.
Ohh Malva, it's late.
Let's leave these good folks now.
It's time for us to go.
Your brother's right.
You should take your rest.
Lizzie's here.
I won't leave her.
She'll be more comfortable in her own bed.
Lizzie's with her.
Here's some willow bark tea for you.
Thank you, lass.
It is the same tea Claire made for me when I was ill with a snakebite.
Oh, no, sir.
Snakebite? Were you badly hurt? Aye.
Almost lost my leg.
I'm terrified of snakes.
I saw a king snake the other day.
They're great ratters, they are.
Maybe so, but they have a wicked bite.
You haven't been bitten, have you? No, sir, but Mr.
Crombie was.
He brought one in a box to a Sunday meeting once to make mischief for he knew the text was: "For they shall take up poisonous serpents and suffer no harm.
" When he opened it, the snake came out like a jack-in-the-box and bit him on the lip.
Did it, then? I dinna recall hearing about that.
Well, Mr.
Crombie was furious.
I imagine no one wanted to spread the story in fear he'd maybe pop with rage.
Aye, I see.
And that's why he refused to come have my wife take a look at the wound, I suppose.
Oh, no sir.
He wouldn't do that.
Not if he was to have to cut off his nose by mistake.
No? Why not? Well some say your wife's a witch, sir.
You do not think so, do ya? Oh, no, sir.
Should wish nothing but to be like her.
She is so kind and lovely.
And so knowledgeable.
I want to learn all she can teach me.
Is it true, sir? That your grandsire was Lord Lovat? Him they called the Old Fox? Oh, aye.
I come from a long line of traitors, thieves, and bastards.
I dinna believe it, sir.
You seem a fine gentleman to me.
I don't know.
Am I? Claire, here.
Drink some of this.
What What on earth? Malva and Mrs.
Bug cut it off the day before yesterday.
They thought it's what you do for someone with a terrible fever.
What? Bree and I weren't here, or we wouldn't have let them.
Of course, Bree was furious with them, but they truly thought they were helping save your life.
- I'll fetch Jamie.
- No.
I don't want him to see me like this.
He's seen you it already.
I mean he s-saw it.
What did he say? He didn't say anything.
He just cried.
You looked funny for a moment.
Do you want some more honey water? No.
Oh - The sickness, is it still - No, it stopped.
Well, I mean, no one's fallen ill in the last week.
A week? How long have I been Just about that.
You were among the last to succumb to it.
Nothing could ever make you less beautiful.
Mama, you're awake! - Hi.
- Hi.
You are not allowed to die.
You know, I wasn't trying to.
You scared me.
You scared all of us.
I didn't mean to.
Well, just don't do it again, right? I love you.
I can't be without you.
I love you too, darling.
And, uh Neither can your new grandchild.
Oh, Bree.
When? I waited a while to tell you.
I wanted to make sure it was real.
Let's get that hair of yours sorted out.
You look ridiculous.
Much better.
Well I guess it's as good as it's going to get.
Thank you, darling.
Now let's get you back into bed.
I, uh, dinna suppose you'd think of wearing a cap.
Only until it grows out a bit? No, I don't suppose I will.
Besides I think Bree has done a lovely job evening it out.
Still should be good for a laugh, seeing the look on other people's faces as they catch sight of me.
Ye're verra beautiful, Sassenach.
And I love you.
- Well, in that case - Hmm? I love you too.
And it will grow back, won't it? - So it will.
- Hmm.
So tell me what's been happening? I found a dead elk in the river upstream from the MacNeill's and the others who got sick.
So at least now we have an answer.
Oh, thank God.
How many were sick? How are they doing? Have many more died? Sure you're well enough, Sassenach? Knowing is better than worrying about it.
Well, then.
Kenny lost his youngest, wee Bobby.
Grace is still ill.
Hugh, Caitlin didna get ill at all.
Three more of the fisherfolk have died.
A dozen more are ailing.
Most are on the mend.
And then there's Tom Christie.
He's still bad last I heard.
Fever, headaches.
Ye're still delirious, Sassenach? Was I delirious? Aye, you were.
You know When we were in Paris and we lost faith during my fever, I saw birds, blue herons, and Master Raymond, he said, "Blue is the color of healing.
" But this time I saw storm clouds and my heart.
And a snake.
And it was in this house.
I can promise you, Sassenach, any snake who crosses our threshold will lose his head before he reaches the staircase.
And you're well now.
So it appears yer wee blue birds were wi' ya after all.
You did try to die on me, did ye no'? I'd be very angry, Claire, if ye'd died and left me.
Well, I didn't.
And I won't.
Christ, Sassenach You've hardly any ass left at all.
Well, don't worry.
That will grow back soon enough.
Adso, you keep the bed warm for me.
Don't tell anyone where I've gone.
Mistress Fraser.
What in the name of God Oh, that.
Would've thought you'd been pleased.
I'm not going about outraging the public with my brazen display of flowing locks.
You look like a monk.
Sit down.
How are you? How am I? You walked all the way here in a dangerously enfeebled condition to ask after my health? Eh You are most unaccountable, madam.
No, I am a doctor.
So how are you? Well, I'm, uh feeling better, if you must know.
You were also very ill, I believe.
Yes, I was, but I didn't have what afflicted the others on the Ridge.
- What do you mean? - It's a bit hard to mistake the bloody flux for fevers and headaches, and I didn't have dysentery.
Now, did you have the flux? No.
No, it, uh, it was, as you say, a headache fit to split the skull, and a fever, a terrible weakness, and, uh, extraordinarily unpleasant dreams.
It sounds as though you and I had the same illness.
A simple viral or bacterial infection, I suppose.
Well, what difference does it make? We are we are both recovered.
Most disease is passed from person to person, sometimes through sharing food or-or water, but I haven't seen you in a while.
So how is it that you and I ended up with the same thing? I do not see why two persons cannot fall ill without seeing each other.
If I could take a sample of yours to look at under the microscope, well, then I'd know without a doubt whether What kind of sample? Well, it would be a-a small measure of, um some fecal matter.
Good Lord, woman.
How dare you ask such a thing? It's for medical purposes.
Come outside.
I will see you home.
And if you insist upon asking such vile and intrusive questions, well, then I suppose I I cannot stop you.
Put on your hat before we go.
What in God's name possessed ye, Sassenach? I was feeling better and Ye're the color of bad buttermilk.
You're trembling so hard you can scarcely Here, let me help ya.
Have you lost yer mind? Sneakin' off without telling anyone.
What if ye'd fallen? What if ye felt unwell again? Well, if I'd told anyone, then they wouldn't let me go.
And I'm a physician, you know? I think I can be the judge of my own health.
You are going nowhere.
You are not allowed to kill yourself.
Do I make myself clear? Well, I see where Brianna gets it from.
I had to go and see if Tom needed my help.
Turns out he's quite recovered.
He and I I think had the same disease.
But it isn't dysentery.
Ye're so thin, Sassenach.
Yer rings hardly fit ye.
I don't want to lose it.
Ye willna.
I swore these rings would never leave your hands again.
You know, it's a great comfort to see the sun come up and go down.
And when I dwelt in the cave, and then when I was in the prison, gave me hope, to see the light come and go, and know the world went about its business.
I get the same feeling, Sassenach, when I hear you rustlin' about your surgery, rattling things or cursing to yourself.
If you were no longer there Or somewhere Then the sun would no longer come up or go down.
What're you doing down there? Didna want to trouble yer sleep.
That reminds me of years ago when we went to collect the rents and you slept on the floor outside my door.
You stepped on me, Sassenach.
Nearly broke my ribs.
Come up here.
Ye sure you want me near? Always.
'Cause I'm not going anywhere.
At least not for a couple of months.
You know, I received word from the Sons of Liberty, details about the next Provincial Congress in New Bern.
Cornelius Harnett has asked me to speak in support of the ongoing efforts to cease trade with Britain.
Well, having been at the receiving end of your powers of persuasion, I would say he's made an excellent choice.
I have the hands of a stonemason.
I think calluses on a man's hand - are deeply erotic.
- Eh? Well, if I didna have calluses down there, it's no fault of yours, believe me.
Your short hair is also very arousin'.
Do you really think so? Aye.
It is but one of the things that draws me to you.
What are the others? Well Ye're brave.
You were always bolder than was safe, and now you're as fierce as a badger, proud as Lucifer.
So I'm arrogant and ferocious.
Well, that's hardly a catalogue of womanly virtues.
Well, you're kind too and very clean.
Although you're not much of a cook.
Thank you very much.
Remind me of some virtues.
Perhaps I missed one.
Well, there is gentleness and patience.
Gentle? Christ! You are one of the most ruthless, bloodthirsty, and you're-you're no' very patient either.
So what is my most endearing trait then? You think I'm funny.
I do not.
Do you want to know what it is Really? Above all the creatures on earth, you're faithful.
So are you.
It's quite a good thing, isn't it? And that was the last of it.
Death's dark shadow had finally passed.
In the weeks that followed, the fisherfolk and the other settlers lived beneath a bright sun once more, their days ruled by its rising and setting, blissfully unaware that the Revolution was edging ever-closer I wish you were coming with me, Sassenach.
I've too much to do here.
Besides, I think you'll enjoy it more, won't you, Roger? The historian in you won't be able to get over being at such a significant event.
I can't say I'm not a little excited.
They'll also decide on three delegates to attend the Continental Congress in Philadelphia.
I'll come with you to that one.
We'll need to speak with you.
Whatever you have to say, my wife can hear it as well.
If you so choose.
My daughter finds herself with child.
Well so, what is it I can help you with, then? She says she will not name the man, save in your presence.
I-in my presence? I don't know why.
Malva how far along are you? All will be well.
Ye must say though.
Oh, sir Will ye no' tell me then, lass? I promise you will not suffer for it.
Oh, sir, how can you say that to me when you know the truth as well as I do? It was him.
What? What? I am so sorry, Mistress Fraser.
He we-we didn't mean to hurt you.
What the hell is she talking about? Your husband's ruined her.
The child is his.
Get up! Keep your fists to yourself.
- No need for that now.
- Isn't there? He's made a whore of your daughter.
Ye ken this isna true.
Now, what mischief is this ye're about, nighean na galladh? How can you speak to me so? How can you be so cruel? Sir, will you be needing anything? I, uh thank you, Mrs.
Bug, but no.
[Malva It was when the sickness came.
When I was here tending to his wife.
Tell them, sir.
Please, tell them the truth.
Oh, I mean to.
You'll do the same, lass, I assure you.
The first time was when Mistress Claire was so ill as we despaired of her life.
It wasn't rape, only him being off his head with the sorrow of it, and me, as well.
I came into her room late at night to find him at the window grieving in the dark and I felt so sorry for him.
I asked could I fetch him a wee bite, maybe something to drink, but he'd taken drink already.
And there was a whisky bottle in his hand.
And I said no, thank you kindly, and I'd be alone.
- You left.
- No, I didn't.
Or rather you did say that, that you'd be alone, but I couldn't bear to see you in such straits.
And I know it was forward and unseemly, but I did pity you so much.
I I came and touched him, put my hand on his shoulder, only to comfort him.
But he turned then and put his arms around me all of a sudden and grasped me to him and then he He took me against the wall whilst you lay sleeping.
So great was his need.
Is she mad? - She's not mad.
- A clever liar then.
Clever enough to ken no one would believe her tale of rape.
Oh, no, sir.
I should never say such a thing of you, never! You needed comfort.
I gave it to you.
She's with a child by someone, and not by me.
Who might it have been? It was you.
There's no one else! I know of no one.
She says it wasn't only the once, but the man in question had her a dozen times or more.
And she has lied a dozen times or more.
Your wife believes me.
My wife has better sense.
I've seen the scars on your naked body.
I can describe them.
No answer to that, have you? There are a number of people who have seen my back, including you, Tom.
I havena slept with them, either.
But what of the crescent mark across your ribs? Or the great ugly one high on your leg on the inside? Show us she's wrong.
Lower your breeks and give us a look, then.
So I suppose you don't intend to put aside your wife and marry her since you are already married in the eyes of God? Of course not.
Then we'll draw up a contract.
Maintenance for her and the bairn.
Formal acknowledgement of the child's rights as one of your heirs.
I suppose you could take the bastard for your wife to rear.
- That is your business.
- Get out.
Take your daughter and leave my house.
I'd like nothing better than to give you your head in yer hands.
Leave now, before I do it.
I've been wondering, Sassenach, what in God's name I should say.
I thought of one thing and another Hell, I could think of a few things.
What? Say I was sorry? That's no' right.
I am sorry but to say so sounds as though I've done something to be sorry for, and I have not.
There is no way to deny such a charge without carrying a stink of doubt about it.
And nothing I can say to you that doesna sound like a groveling apology.
I willna apologize for somethin' I havena done.
If I did, you'd only doubt me more.
Well, you don't seem to have a lot of faith of my faith in you.
If I didna have quite a lot of it, I wouldna be here.
Ye didna think it true? What Malva said.
You ran away.
'Cause I was in shock.
And if I'd stayed, I might have bloody well killed her.
Ye didna think it true, though? I saw you at the window with her.
How she touched you.
I had thought it was an hallucination, but Jamie Fraser if you could do such a thing as that And-and I don't mean lying with a woman.
I mean, doing it and then lying to me about it Well then everything I've done and everything that we have is a lie.
And I'm not prepared to-to admit to such a thing.
What do you mean by that, Sassenach? I don't belong here.
Brianna, Roger, they don't belong here.
And Jemmy, shouldn't be here.
But yet-but yet here we all are, all of us.
Because I loved you more than the life that I had.
And because I believed that you loved me in the same way.
'Cause you do.
And I-I know that.
Or are you going tell me that that's not truth? No.
I willna tell ye that.
Not ever.
Claire I do have something to tell you.
Don't do that.
It feels like a punch to the gut.
I'm sorry.
You said you wouldn't say you were sorry unless you'd-you'd done something you were sorry for.
I did.
There is no good way to tell your wife you've lain with someone else no matter the circumstances.
Who? And when? When you you were gone.
Only once.
When I was gone? Who? Christ.
The last thing I wanna do is upset you, Sassenach.
By making it sound as though it was I dinna wish to malign the poor woman - by making it seem she was - Who? Jesus! Mary MacNab.
Who the hell is Mary MacNab? Ye kent her, Sassenach.
She was the mother to Rabbie, stable-lad at Lallybroch.
It was the the night before I gave myself up to the Redcoats.
She came to me.
I was in the cave.
She brought me supper and then she she stayed.
I tried to send her away, but she said she'd seen you with me, Claire.
She kent the look of true love when she saw it.
And it wasna in her mind to betray that.
She give me a a small thing.
It was and it wasna.
She gave me tenderness.
I hope I gave her the same.
Sure you gave her tenderness.
I know you did.
I just wish you told me about it.
I couldna think how.
How to tell you that you'd understand.
But of course, I understand.
So do you believe me about Malva? Yes.
Not only because of you and me, but because if it had have happened I know you would've never turned your back on a child of your blood, no matter how it came into the world.
So what do we do now? Find out the truth if we can.
By daybreak, the whole of the Ridge will ken what happened.
But no one will believe it.
They'll all believe it, Claire.
I'm sorry.
God damn Mrs.
It'll be all over the Ridge now.
Why would Malva do this? Mama has always been so kind to her.
Either the real father is someone she doesn't want to marry or she's decided to try and go after Jamie's money or property or both.
Well, it isn't true.
Dad wouldn't this.
- Would he? - No, he wouldn't.
Brianna, you can't possibly think there's any truth to it? No, no.
Of course, not.
Of course, not.
I just Do you remember when we went to Harvard for that ceremony to honor Daddy? Aye.
Well, there was this woman there that I recognized.
Her name was Sandy.
We ran into her once at a bookstore.
And I saw the way Daddy looked at her.
And then she showed up at our house once during Mama's graduation party, and Mama finally told me that he was in love with her and planned to marry her.
Frank was a totally different situation.
Your mother loved another man for 20 years.
Your father knew it, Brianna.
Jamie is an honorable man and he loves your mother deeply.
See, that's just the thing.
Roger, I would have sworn that Daddy was too.
If you've come to ask me to take it back I just want to talk.
Nothing to talk about.
Then maybe I could listen.
I doubt you've been able to talk to anyone, especially not your father or brother Why would they listen to a whore? I don't think you're a whore, Malva.
What else would you call a woman who spreads her legs for a married man? My father made me stand in front of the congregation and confess.
MacKenzie told him not to, but he did it anyway.
Do you know what I think? I think you're a young woman who made a mistake, but it wasn't with my husband.
Perhaps it was he who made the mistake and now I'm carrying the blame for it.
No, no, I believe him.
You know, he and I have been through things that you couldn't even imagine.
And this I promise you, it won't come between us.
Malva, I'm sorry for whatever it is that you're going through that would make you so desperate to do this.
You're apologizing to me? I care about you.
Now, I see in you this clever young woman full of curiosity and enthusiasm.
And I was proud to be your teacher.
It's-it's not too late, Malva.
You can still tell the truth.
It's going to be all right.
No, it can't be.
It can never be.
Get away from her! What d'you mean, coming here like this? I was just trying to If you hadn't meddled in our family and tried to teach Malva your devilish ways, this never would have happened.
You're wrong.
She says you make potions to bring people back from the dead.
It's true.
I saw it.
She's a witch.
And we know what happens to witches, don't we, Malva? Aye.
We do.
Stay away from my family.
Jamie Fraser, mouthing off to us about plowing and harvesting when he's been busy sowing wild oats of his own.
Watch it, Henderson.
I willna warn ye again.
What? Least I have the bollocks to come out and say what everyone else is Are you all right, Auntie? I'm fine.
I wanted to ask you something.
It's about it's about Malva Christie.
What about her? Well, not her exactly.
More of what she said about Uncle Jamie.
Ian, you mustn't worry yourself about it.
It will it will come right somehow as things always do.
It's only what they're sayin' about him.
I canna bear to hear it.
Ian, it's impossible that Jamie would be the father of Malva's child.
You do understand that, don't you? I-I do, Auntie.
But it could be mine.
What? Ian, are you saying that to protect Jamie because if you are It was only once.
She is so beautiful.
And she talked to me.
She wasn't as shy like the other lasses.
She was curious about my life, and I wanted to feel again.
One day I was at the river with her and we we lay together.
But later, it didna feel right.
I told her that I was sorry, but that I loved another.
That I still loved Emily.
And it couldn't happen again.
Auntie, do you think I scorned her, and that's what made her accuse Uncle Jamie? Ian, it's not your fault.
But she's carryin' my child.
I'll marry her.
I'll be a husband and a father.
I'll do it for the bairn's sake.
Ian, it may not be your baby.
Roger said that he saw her with Obadiah Henderson.
There might have been others.
But it might be mine.
And it isna Uncle Jamie's.
Would it help him, do you think? I could try and talk to her.
I don't think you should do anything right now.
Just let me talk to Jamie first.
Do you mind if I tell him? I wish you would.
I dinna think I could face him myself.
Despite Ian's news, the damage was already done.
From that day on, we lived under a cloud of darkness.
Thank God I had Brianna to confide in.
Most of the settlers wouldn't even look at me.
We were pariahs.
And while Jamie was away at the Congress, preparing to revolt against Great Britain, the Ridge was mounting a rebellion of its own.
A scholar he may be, but I didna think Roger Mac realized all worthwhile business is conducted in a public house over tankards and drams.
Especially when it involves declaring independence from the King Sheer amount of alcohol involved in making history.
Rum punch, shandy, brandywine.
Persimmon beer, rhubarb wine, cherry bounce, merry brew, and scrumpy.
I mean, it's amazing how anyone can get a complete sentence out.
Apart from your father of course.
His speech was pretty bold as you can imagine I'll bet.
Did he declare himself for liberty then? Aye.
He said we should be a free and independent people under the control of no power other than that of God and the government of the congress.
Wow, that is bold.
- Amazing.
- Mm.
Unfortunately, no amount of liquor dulled these men's senses to the gossip that had somehow beaten us there.
He wasn't chosen as a delegate for Philadelphia.
People had heard of his alleged indiscretion.
You know, Harnett was right.
You would have been a fantastic representative at the Continental Congress.
It's just as well, Sassenach.
I have much to do here at the Ridge.
And how has it been for you? I've managed.
The settlers have been awful to Mama.
Even the sick wouldn't come to her to be healed.
Bloody ungrateful.
After all she done for this community.
To have so little faith.
But still, I kept believing that this too shall pass.
Someday people will have forgotten.
Lonely, are you? Don't worry.
I'm here.
Mistress? Mistress? Mistress? Mistress? Wake up.
Wake up.
Wake up.
How did you get in here? Never mind.
I know what you're doing.
- Dying and coming back.
- No.
You said it was medicine, but it's not.
It's of the devil.
- You're of the devil! - You get out! You must've been beautiful once, but you're old.
Your hair's gone to grey.
It's short and ugly.
The veins stand out on your hands, the flesh falls away from your bones, and you're dried up inside.
That's why he's turned to me.
I pleased him so over and over.
He couldn't get his fill.
I'll have him.
I'll have this house.
I'll have his child.
Everything that's yours will be mine! You come near me or my husband again and I will fucking kill you.
Oh, God! Oh, no.
No, oh.
