In Episode 207: FAITH, Caitriona Balfe‘s talent radiates even more than usual as Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser. Sam Heughan makes a cameo appearance at the end (insert chuckle) so will have to wait his turn to take back over his reign of Top 30. It’s either that or a list of Jamie’s Top 2 – with and without the Gettysburg beard.
I’m happy to feature Caitriona for this episode because she’s every bit as brilliant a shining star as Sam. I just don’t want to make out with her, though I do have a girl crush on Le Dame Balfe – not embarrassed to admit it.
So, until clean shaven Jamie returns for an entire episode and we head back to Scotland, let’s have a quick bit of fun with Claire, shall we?
#10: Claire’s Hot Chocolate Face – Yeah . . . not the face of a woman who’s craving hot chocolate while her husband sits, rotting in the Bastille.
#9: Claire’s 1950s Face – Electricity. Hot showers. No corset. Jamie who?
(Do I really have to tell you I’m kidding?)
#8: Claire’s Seduced By The King Face – Shoulda worn gloves to meet the King . . . and underwear.
#7: Claire’s To The Rescue Face – How many times does Claire have to break Jamie outta jail? Jeesh.
#6: Claire’s March To the King Face – Tailhook party for one? Must be a slow day at Versailles.
#5: Claire’s Wham, Bam, Thank You Ma’am Face – She’s thinking about England? I’d be thinking about Jamie, like I do when I’m, er, brushing my teeth.
#4: Claire’s I’ll Be Taking This Face – After “sleeping with the King” . . . I’d have taken the whole damn bowl of oranges.
#3: Claire’s Bring Me Home Face – With all the crying in this episode, finally some tears of joy – sort of.
#2: Claire’s Is That It? Faces – Even Jamie wasn’t that fast his first time.
#1: Claire’s La Dame Blanche Face – Gosh. Doesn’t Claire sound just like Tony Stark when he says: “I am Ironman.”
