MOP Video: Season 5, Episode 509 "Monsters and Heroes"

My Outlander Purgatory's Carol and Tracey are back to recap the latest episode of Season 5 of Outlander, the Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon's best selling book series. Join us as we break down every moment (and then some), including why Laura Anderson from Love Island is awesome; whether or not we should be on Cameo; why the John Krasinski #SGNProm was really for older ladies; whether Ian will keep the Mohawk lewk; why we all ARE UP IN THE FACE OF ANYONE WHO EFFS WITH OUR SAM; why the people of the Ridge felt the need to dye everything blue; how JAMMF is just a typical dad of a daughter; why no one could get a shot of a million buffalo just standing there; why Edward Cullen should be around to solve all snake bite emergencies; why it’s a good thing Claire didn’t decide to invent blue jeans; whether or not we know what JAMMF “meant”; why JAMMF really needed that shot of penicillin; what the actual danger of a buffalo is (and whether or not it could really headbutt someone across the backyard); how Claire and JAMMF’s first floor master suite is the envy of all viewers of “House Hunters: Ridge Edition”; why we’ll always take an episode in which Fergus has more than two lines; the meaning behind the Ian/Fergus conversation; what Claire has in common with a crash cart; a deep dive into JAMMF’s psyche; and MUCH, MUCH MORE!!

  1. Hi! I think people used Indigo as a dyebath because it is from a plant that was grown in that area. There were not a lot of dyes that were long lasting and indigo did last longer than most. Most dyes used then were plants, roots, insects and were not pretty, bright colors.

  2. Hi Tracey and Carol. I just found Outlander in December and you guys this weekend. So much fun. You are awesome. Love the show and read the first book. I am completely heartbroken over Sam's message this week and then almost losing Jamie. Omg. Life is a gift!

  3. I really liked the episode this week and your recap. I especially liked the witty back and forth between Jamie and Roger (including Jamie correcting Roger on the biblical passage). Your comments on the indigo and the blue jeans really made me laugh too! I appreciated how many characters got some good lines (Ian and Fergus included).

    I looked up buffalo after watching your recap about your question on how dangerous buffalo really are and it boils down to two words: very dangerous! I learned that the American ones are actually bison but the early settlers referred to them as buffalo. They can run up to 40 mph and a male bison can weigh up to 2,200 pounds. So if one wanders into your yard, make sure to run at least 41 mph away from it :) I think Bree would have had a major concussion after getting knocked into the air, not to mention some broken bones. Good thing she wasn't holding the snake fang or it would have gotten shattered to pieces for sure. The extra after the show about the scene showed a guy chasing her and then they added in the bison on a green screen.

    Kudos to the whole cast for the last two episodes especially! Thanks for your recap and I look forward to hearing your next one!
