I genuinely cried at this point. Hinata’s so down, and I know he’s brought this on himself, but he’s trying so bloody hard. Hungry and clueless about what to do, he calls the one person who for all he knows is going to yell at him again. But Keishin’s there, and he doesn’t yell.
Check Ukai’s face, he’s hurting for the boy because he must know how awful he’s feeling, but he’s proud too. That ‘Yus’ says it all.
Pictured above is the entrance to the apartment belonging to serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer. A total of 12 out of the 17 males he murdered were killed behind this door. His last intended victim, Tracy Edwards, managed to flee from the property after catching Dahmer off guard and physically confronting him, using this as an opportunity to escape. Edwards had allegedly spent five hours in the apartment before finally being able to free himself. He later told police how he had spent that time reassuring Jeffrey that he was his friend and that he was not going to run away. At one point, Edwards spoke of how Dahmer had put on a horror film and began chanting whilst pressing a knife to his skin. After this, Jeffrey apparently put his ear to Edwards’ chest and listened to his heartbeat, telling him “I’m going to eat your heart.” Jeffrey Dahmer’s captureensued after Edwards escaped and alerted the authorities. When officers came to search apartment 213, they discovered human skulls, hearts, torsos, a bag of human organs, severed genitalia and severed hands to be amongst the remains hoarded as cannibalistic tokens of Dahmer’s crimes.
Jamie and Claire at the Stones: And the two shall become one
Several of us have already written about the deeply moving “dance” that Jamie led Claire to in their final scene together at the Stones, as he gently guided her to THE stone. I keep thinking about the difference between ep 111, i.e. the first time Jamie tried to send Claire back, and ep 213. You recall that in 111, he led her to Craigh na Dun, she started to touch the stone, he pulled her away, they spoke briefly, he started walking away, said “Good-bye Sassenach,” and then she called out to him, “Jamie, good-bye.” Then he went down the hill to the campfire, where he said he would wait out the night to make sure that she was safe, but he left her alone at the stones. We do not know why - I have often thought that he could be not bear the pain of watching her go.
In ep 213, when they reach the stones, and as the gravity of the situation comes crashing around them, he does not break down or let on that his heart is also rupturing, and he seems to be in total control. He seems to dance her to the stones and even places his hand over hers when she touches THE stone, having already determined that he could not time travel because he could not hear the buzzing.
What accounts for the difference in these two scenes that have the same intended outcome, i.e. sending Claire back to the 1940s?
I see this exquisitely beautiful portrayal as the embodiment of these words: AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH; consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh (Mark 10:8) They have become one, having truly set each other as a seal on their hearts, knowing that wherever one goes, the other also goes, because they are one, even when they are separated. Thus in their movement together to that place of final separation, they move as one. We were privileged to be able to watch this lovingly tender, soul-filled, achingly raw moment portrayed by Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, two people who are incomparable in their craft. For them and for their work, I am most grateful.

“No greater love is there than this...” The day of the Battle of Culloden, Jamie epitomizes selfless love by:
1. Signing the Deed of Sasine and giving it to Fergus to take home to Jenny at Lallybroch - takes care of his family home, to assure that it does not fall into the hands of the British, and gets Fergus safely away from the fighting. In so doing, he is sending his son away, giving up being Laird, giving up taking care of his large family and their holdings, and essentially renounces ownership of everything he possessed.
2. Instructing Murtagh to take the Lallybroch men to the road so they can start to make their way home. Watches out for his relatives and friends whom he has known his whole life.
3. Telling Murtagh to stay with the men, wanting him to be safe too (I’m glad Murtagh did not listen!). Wants to protect his Godfather - the person who has loved him the longest, saved his life, and been his faithful companion and mentor.
4. Taking Claire to the stones - essentially ripping his heart out of his chest and stomping on it. Sending away the great love of his life to save her and their unborn child.
5. Dancing Claire to the stone, never taking his eyes from hers, willing that every ounce of strength and love he has can flow into her to ease her way. Places his hand on hers to continue touching her, guiding her, until mystery of Craigh na Dun takes her from him forever.
