When members of the Watch arrive for one of their regular visits, Jamie and Claire’s lives are turned upside down. The Watch effectively defends the natives against the British, but at a cost. Jamie thinks they’re just robbers, but Ian assures him that they’re the closest thing they have to an army. Jamie is disguised as a tourist, but his secret is out, and when Horrocks, a Redcoat deserter from his past, arrives, he is blackmailed. Jamie has no choice but to join the Watch after dealing with his blackmailer. Jenny goes into labor in the meantime, and with the village midwife gone, Claire will have to deliver the baby in a tough birth.
