In Episode 205: UNTIMELY RESURRECTION, Sam Heughan takes us back to serious Jamie. He has very little time for humor, being forced by the Prince to partner with St. Germain and broadsided by the return of Captain Randall. To top it all off, Claire makes a demand he never thought possible given his very recent experience. But he pulls himself together and makes a promise even we know is not possible to keep.
We have Tender Jamie, B/Romantic Jamie, Duty Jamie, Business Jamie, Intense Jamie and even Scary Jamie in this episode. It may be a while before we see Sexy/Steamy Jamie in an episode, but he still looks great no matter what. Presented here are my Top 30 Looks for Episode 205. I hope you enjoy Jamie’s many faces on this Mother’s Day 2016.
#30: Jamie’s Do Not Touch Me Face – Thought I’d start with the worst thing Jamie could say to Claire. We all felt it.
#29: Jamie’s Prada Prince Face – Jamie’s own private “The Devil Wears Prada” moment. Don’t bother the Prince. Please bore someone else with your . . . questions.
#28: Jamie’s La Dame Blanche Rumors Face – Shoulda known that one would come back to bite him in the ass.
#27: Jamie’s Weapon Of Choice Face – If this were Game of Thrones, there’d be so-o-o-o many more choices. Flaying comes to mind. Can you challenge someone to a flaying?
#26: Jamie’s Untimely Resurrection Face – Never thought I’d say this, but thank goodness for the Prince.
#25: Jamie’s Good News Indeed Face – Jamie’s cheeks are starting to hurt from all the fake smiles he has to wear in Paris.
#24: Jamie’s Get On With It Face – “I’m handsome. You’re handsome. Let the fans decide . . .”
#23: Jamie’s Not Scared Of You Face – Please give him a reason . . .
#22: Jamie’s Long And Slow Death Face – Flayings all around!
#21: Jamie’s So Close And Yet So Far Face – From killing Randall, that is.
#20: Jamie’s F*ck The Prince Face – Ah, haven’t seen this face in a while. Makes me miss Dougal.
#19: Jamie’s La Dame Blanche Busted Face – They always find out . . .
#18: Jamie’s Holding Back Face – From killing Randall a second time, that is.
#17: Jamie’s Changing The Future Face – Crackers . . . yes. Sword . . . eh . . . maybe not.
#16: Jamie’s Ultimatum Face – Chills . . . just chills.
#15: Jamie’s Long Memory Face – Is that anything like a Longfellow?
#14: Jamie’s Togetherness Face – We get it. You love her. You don’t have to rub it in our faces.
#13: Jamie’s Man Of Honor Face – That’s why the bite marks are only on his thighs . . .
#12: Jamie’s Princely Caresses Face – The Prince looks to be missing Louise more than he’s letting on.
#11: Jamie’s Gentleman’s Kiss Face – Omg. Jamie’s lips.
#10: Jamie’s Never Boring Face – Don’t know what book St. Germain is reading, but this man’s personal life is never boring.
#9: Jamie’s Happy Day Face – What’s the first thing Jamie’s going to do after he kills Randall? He’s going to Disneyland!
#8: Jamie’s Swears Vengeance Face – I can’t keep track of all the people Jamie wants to exact vengeance upon. Glad I’m not one of them.
#7: Jamie’s Swears An Oath Face – I never wanted to be a prop sword . . . until now.
#6: Jamie’s Played The Whore Face – This is actually my favorite look of the episode, though not technically Jamie’s best. So here it is at #6. Heart-damn-breaking.
#5: Jamie’s Just Vengeance Face – Love the two-sided lighting on Jamie’s face here – black and white, light and dark, right and wrong, good and bad. He’s a complicated man.
#4: Jamie’s My Gift To The Bairn Face – The Gabaldon giveth and the Gabaldon taketh away . . .
#3: Jamie’s Lovey Dovey Face – We know they made love here, but they just couldn’t show us, could they?
#2: Jamie’s Family Man Face – I have to be honest. My mind is bouncing all over the place on this one. And it keeps coming back to the print shop and the pictures. (Gotta go cry now.)
#1: Jamie’s Snuggly Wuggly Face – Yep. That’s pretty much how I imagine it feels being snuggled by Jamie. Guess I’ll have to be satisfied knowing what it feels like to be hugged by Sam Heughan. Not too shabby, by the way. Not shabby at all.
