Outlander Heaven and Earth Recap Season 3 Episode 10
Jamie tries to get Fergus to break him out of the brig so that he can seize control of the ship and go chasing after a British man o’ war with his wife on board. Fergus is dubious at first but is persuaded when Jamie promises to give his proposed marriage to Marsali his blessing. Marsali is also dubious about the scheme. However Fergus is really anxious to have sex with her, but they have promised to wait until marriage.
Fergus slips into the captain’s cabin to steal the key to the brig. However he overhears some of the sailors discussing his bride-to-be and what they want to do with her. Fergus considers what will happen to her if he is put in irons and is unable to defend her. So he declines to steal the key at the last moment. Ironically, the captain frees Jamie anyway when he needs all hands on deck. Touched by this, Jamie gives his blessing for the marriage.
Meanwhile, on board the Porpoise, Claire is hard at work trying to contain the typhus epidemic. She has the water boiled and the grog used as disinfectant. While the British captain uses his authority to make sure these things are done, some of the crew are openly hostile to taking orders from a woman. A young officer, Elias Pound, helps her and even comes up with the idea of distilling the grog to make pure alcohol.
Still, more men are dying. Claire checks the ship’s logs and finds out that the source of the disease is a man who is asymptomatic and is serving the crew food. She has the man locked up in order to isolate him, and the deaths begin to drop substantially.
Claire finds out that one of the crew, who happened to be the man who helped to set fire to the print shop, recognized Jamie on the other ship. The Porpoise’s captain, doing his duty, plans to use Claire as bait in Jamaica and have Jamie arrested for murder and treason.
With the help of a woman named Mistress Johansen, who keeps the ship’s livestock, Claire makes her escape from the ship and starts to swim toward an island where the Porpoise had just acquired fresh water and other supplies in a desperate attempt to find Jamie and warn him before it is too late.
