Narrowly surviving closing week’s print shop fireplace, Young Ian is returned house safely to Lallybroch by Jamie and Claire. However neither he nor his auntie win a warm reception upon arrival.
“I never idea I’d locate you grace my front step over again,” Jenny tells Claire, clearly distrusting of Jamie’s long-misplaced bride. And it doesn’t lend a hand Claire’s motive that Young Ian tells his mom that Claire shot a man useless true days after reuniting with Jamie. (Claire helpfully assures that she didn’t kind it, savor, in front of Young Ian.)
Meanwhile, Ian informs Jamie that he desires to be the one to whip Young Ian as punishment for running away. Finally, if Jamie considers Young Ian something of a son, he must also lend a hand with the much less luscious duties.
