Geilis and Claire have been imprisoned pending their witchcraft trial. Geilis tells Claire that she murdered Arthur, which comes as no surprise. She also declares her allegiance to the Jacobite cause. The trial itself appears to be a one-sided affair, but Ned Gowan arrives just in time to give both of them with a defense. Geilis’ housemaid, a woman who bought a love potion from her, and Laoghaire, who alleges Claire used magic to steal Jamie, are among the witnesses against them. As the trial draws to a close, Ned informs the two ladies that the only way to save themselves is for Claire to denounce Geilis. She refuses, but Geilis saves her and discloses her big secret in the process. Jamie whisks Claire away from the courtroom, where she reveals the truth about her history.
