THERE he is—fierce, fair but don’t-fuck-with-me-or-mine James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser!
I was worried there for a little while, but in episode 209 Sam Heughan did a great job of capturing book-Jamie’s spirit.
Didn’t you just love the way he ‘handled’ Dougal; respectful yet stern, unwavering in his decisions? And also how he held himself accountable to his men—even Dougal had to give him props for that…
It was classic book-Jamie.
I saw confidence, I saw strong will, I saw, finally, a LEADER not a follower! I’ve so been waiting for that!
This is a turning point for Jamie, it’s the beginning of his evolution into the ‘King of Men’ persona he is so widely known and loved for (among book fans anyway).
I can’t wait to see what’s next! Je Suis Prest!
