Outlander 2×03 Useful Occupations and Deceptions
While Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) days and nights are occupied with running his uncle Jared’s wine business, playing chess with Finance Minister Joseph Duverney (Marc Duret) and befriending Prince Charles Edward Stuart (Andrew Gower), his wife Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is bored with the life of a lady.
Having tea “with the ladies” – neighbour Louise de Rohan (Claire Sermonne) and young Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day) – makes Claire feel restless and useless, so when the opportunity presents itself, she is more than happy to offer her help at a local hospital, L’Hôpital des Anges, run by the formidable Mother Hildegard (Frances de la Tour).
Jamie finally manages to arrange the long desired meeting between Duverney and Prince Charles at Maison Elise. At first Duverney seems more interested in the female residents of the brothel when Charles surprises both Jamie and the Minister of Finance with news, that threaten to swat all of the Frasers’ plans.
