Outlander Chapter 37

By Diana Gabaldon

Chapter 37

Escape

  • Murtagh, Jamie, and Claire flee the next morning.
  • Of course, they have to travel right around the prison, though, so they get intercepted by a few guards on horseback.
  • Jamie shoots one of them, and Murtagh shoots another; it's up to Claire to pursue the third and bring them down.
  • She shoots the man's horse, and he falls off. She approaches him in the snow… and runs her dagger into his neck at the base of his skull. Yikes.
  • After that, they end up on the Cristobel, a boat bound for the Abbey of Ste. Anne de Beaupré. 
  • Jamie is seasick, but Murtagh and Claire manage to pour a healthy dose of laudanum down his throat, knocking him out for the voyage.
