I enjoyed the Duke of Sandringham scenes in this episode. He's definitely another wild card being he's in cahoots with both Black Jack and the Jacobites. After finding a dead baby in the middle of the woods, it makes sense for Claire to want to save a mother and her unborn child, even if the the woman in question is a murderess. Who knows what they did with convicted pregnant women in this time. In regards to the Laoghair situation, what it is that Claire should've done? Should she have gone to Colum? Talk to the girl's parents? (does she have parents?!) Do they dole out punishments for planting "ill wishes"? What was Jamie's take on the matter? I was really thrown off by the revelation that Dougal was married AND was having an affair with Geillis.Dougal's wife should've been mentioned earlier in the season, not 2/3 of the way into it. And the writers should've at least hinted that Dougal and Geillis have a relationship. We've never seen them interact; even in this episodes, they don't speak to each other.

"Revenge" is spiraling out into the worst kind of soap opera. It's losing sight if its original premise: EMILY SEEKING VENGENCE FOR HER FATHER. The show needs to get back to Emily vs. ConVict. No more if this Daniel/Sara nonsense and ESPECIALLY none this Emily-sleeping-with-Conrad bullsh*t. I swear if the writers don't fix things by the end of this season, I'm jumping ship. I can't enjoy a show when I'm dreading each new episode.
Thinking back on it, there's no way Emily could've stopped Amanda, Declan, and Takeda's deaths. She had no idea what they were up to. Same regarding Nolan's situation. I understand. It's tempting to think of Emily as an omniscient being. "Leaves the Graysons pennyless, immediatly returns their fortune just so Victoria can attend her wedding." What episode did that happen?
