Claire and Louise S2 Paris

Outlander Little Wonder They Had Their Heads Chopped Off

Outlander Little Wonder They Had Their Heads Chopped Off

The attitudes of French aristocracy, their excesses and lack of compassion came to light clearly in Season 2 Episode 6. Troubled by the miserable poor? Just pack them off to another less desirable part of the city. Easy. Out of sight, out of mind (even Fergus knew that saying). No worries. Mm… It seems to me we haven’t learnt the lesson, isn’t that what some cities do when the Olympics (or some other big event, rolls into town? Anyway, a little less than 50 years would bring their comeuppance.

Claire tried to give Louise some hints about being more compassionate, but there was little she could do. Louise was basically a good person, a real friend to Claire, but she was a product of her time.
