In Episode 210: PRESTONPANS, Jamie leads us into battle and faces the loss of a friend. This is a gritty, bloodthirsty episode with our first up close and personal look at Highlander warfare, tempered with moments of combat companionship.

With every episode, Sam Heughan‘s man-no-longer-a-lad grows more mature, commanding, responsible, charming and especially irresistible. This episode is particularly engaging because of all the characters – Dougal’s gallant ride into the bog under enemy fire, Murtagh’s somber reflection on the significance of life and death, Angus and Rupert’s battle banter on and off the field, the Prince’s noble gestures and acknowledgment of his subjects, Fergus’ first-hand introduction to war, Claire’s life-saving measures (except when it comes to Angus, but what could she do?) and Jamie, Jamie, Jamie in the war room, on the field, beside the Prince and all over Dougal.

I must admit my favorite scenes are between Jamie and Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Andrew Gower). Like Simon Callow‘s performance as the Duke of Sandringham, I have thoroughly enjoyed both gentlemen in the roles. Andrew portrays the Prince exactly how I would have imagined him – perfectly entitled and unwittingly delightful.

Due to forces beyond my control, I present to you a very late Jamie’s Top 30 Looks for Episode 210. I may be tardy, but at least I can offer something new to read during Droughtlander.
