MOP VIDEO: "I Am Not Alone" Episode 608


Outlander “I Am Not Alone” Season 6 Episode 608 FINALE RECAP! My Outlander Purgatory's Carol and Tracey are back to recap the Season 6 finale of Outlander, the Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon's best-selling book series. Join us as we break down every moment, including why our drinks are boring AF; why jet lag hits you harder the older you get; all the fun we had on our MOP Goes to Scotland trip (include the Highland Malt Whisky Experience at McGregor’s Pub in Inverness, the Dunrobin Castle in Sutherland; Hopetoun House near Edinburgh; a swordfighting demonstration from Paul MacDonald and Grant McGregor; dancing around the stones at Clava Cairns, and a special performance from Season 1’s Bard, Gillebride MacMillan); how it’s hard to believe that the same person directed this episode AND the last one; why the Easter egg scene got us all jonesing for a Jersey diner breakfast; WTH Jamie and Claire are doing with an arsenal of guns (and why they don’t have a hidey hole); why Claire was more badass than we’ve seen her all season; why they should consider blowing out the candles before they flip a table they are on; how Richard Brown would have found out that Marsali killed his brother; where the hell Bree and Roger got that two-room tent (and how they put it up); why we think that some of this episode was better read than seen; why Roger was the hottest thing in this episode; how we can still recite the Act of Contrition; why it’s crazy that Jamie and Claire are putting up with all this shit; why we found it hard to believe that Claire would care about anyone’s wounds at this point; why Tracey is obsessed with Titanic, what Richard Brown’s true motivations really are; how Bree was able to keep from tossing lice-infested Jem off the wagon and away from her long flowing locks (and how they managed to remember the Breedal Sassoon scissors); how Wagon Jamie and Claire harkened back to the J/C of yore; IAN IAN IAN; who else besides Claire we might know rotting away in a Wilmington jail cell; the awesomeness that were those final moments; and MUCH, MUCH MORE!!!

RIP (or not) Lord Lovat; Simon "The Fox" Fraser

Photo Credit: Wikipedia 

It was on this day, April 9th, 1747 that the real life Simon Fraser aka Lord Lovat aka Jamie Fraser's wicked grandda...was the last person to be beheaded in the UK, due to his participation in the Jacobite Uprising of 1743.

Apparently there was a giant crowd at the execution and a "timber stand" collapsed (a scaffolding, built to hold spectators), killing 9 people. Fraser laughed as he thought this was amusing, thus creating the phrase "laughing your head off."

Simon Fraser was thought to have been buried at the  Wardlaw Mausoleum, Kirkhill, Inverness.  
However in 2018, the crypt was opened and the coffin was exhumed. What did they find? The remains of a woman. They now believe he was never the Tower of London and may be buried somewhere on site.

Join us as we break down every moment, including the addicting mystery that is TikTok; a possible MOP contest (watch this space!!); why our Scotland trip is going to include a stop at the Surgeon’s Hall Museum of 18th century medical oddities (aka “I’m Claire and I made a museum”); why Ross Poldark belonged in this episode; MARK MEEEEEEEEE and why he reminded us of Peter Scolari; the return of LORD JOHN and whether he’s hotter than Fergus; why taverns like the one JAMMF hit up were the backbone of the Revolutionary War; why Rog and Amy have all the Little House “Ma Ingalls and the handyman” vibes; why it’s surprising that Rog can bust out a tune; whether Bree has invented some sort of GMO pea growing machinery; why Marsali is the expert in love charms (cause Mommy Leghair taught her well); all the talk of William at the party and what it might mean; why Claire has trouble meeting famous historical figures; why Roger needs to be smacked upside the head; why we’d totally hang out with Claire, Flora, and Jocasta; why Jocasta is like the Liz Taylor of Outlander; why Bear McCreary needs to write Claire some special trigger music; when JAMMF might find out that Claire’s hooked on ether; why JAMMF/Lord John conversations are hard to watch because OMG who do you look at??? and why there needs to be a show where they just break up ruckuses and solve crimes and look hot AF doing it; whether or not Ian and Malva did it a few weeks back; why asking to hear stories about being taken by the Mohawk is not the best way to lure your man, Amy; why Bree needs to start making Jem different toys; why Roger confessing that he has a “weakness for young mothers” may not be the best call; why Malva has turned full on Jame Gumm crazy; why the Outlander sound team deserves an Emmy; why LJ’s love for JAMMF breaks our hearts every time; why JAMMF continues to be a master of playing both sides; who the mysterious prisoner is; and MUCH MUCH MORE!!
