Ah, the dunbonnet.

Such a funny name for such a funny-looking guy, who's apparently the most dangerous traitor that Scotland has to offer. Poor Jamie spent tonight's episode of Outlander primarily hiding out in a cave (we first accidentally typed "cafe," which would be a very different story), trying out a new look that was, we're sorry to say, not working for him. But it also kind of was? We're conflicted. (Please head to the comments to share your thoughts on Jamie's Dunbonnet look.)

Turns out that's the life he gets to lead after being "rescued" from execution last week, since the English are constantly on the hunt for traitors. After Fergus lost a hand and Jenny spent her precious moments after giving birth trying to convince the redcoats that her baby was dead and not, in fact, being held by Jamie in a closet, Jamie decided to give himself up.

Or rather he and Ian convinced Jenny to send for the English, and act as if she was giving him up, so that her family would be protected. In preparation, Jamie kindly went back to his usual clean-shaven look, and then was visited by Mary McNab for a quick pre-prison roll in the hay. 

The next day, both Jamie and Jenny did some seriously great acting as he pretended to return home for the first time and Jenny pretended she wanted to turn him in.

Meanwhile, two hundred years later, Claire and Frank were trying desperately to make their marriage work. That meant awkward dinner parties with neighbors, but it also meant sex. Frank couldn't get over the fact that Claire couldn't open her eyes and look at him while they did it, and Claire was definitely thinking of Jamie while they did it, so it didn't go all that well. 

Claire soon realized she needed something in her life other than being Brianna's mother and pining for Jamie, so she enrolled in medical school and quickly connected with the only other student who also wasn't a white man. How the casting department for this show found so many annoyed looking men to play the other students in this scene we'll never know, but boy were those some salty-looking extras. 

For some insight into those scenes with Frank—and more scoop from this season so far—scroll on down!
