Ep201 was my most favorite episode because I was so anxious to see how the second season would open. I just loved how it started with Claire's return and all the scenes with Frank. I could imagine how it happened in the book, but seeing it was so satisfying. Ep 213 was my second favorite segment. I loved how Bree and Roger got together and how it ended with "realization" dawning on Claire.
I loved this season for the range of emotion it allowed from not just Claire, but the servants and Jamie as well. When Claire thanks Magnus on her return from the hospital, the tears are in free-flow. Her scene with Fergus and eventual reconnecting with Jamie is touching. I also loved the scene with Murtagh from "Best Laid Schemes" where he discovers Claire's secret. It's a touching scene. when Murtagh seems to be painfully reminded of his own mortality, and the burden Claire carries in the knowledge she has.
Loved this season and it is hard to choose one. Cait displayed Phenomenal talent in Faith. Murtaugh was splendid in vengeance is mine but when Jaimiw walked Claire to the stone to return to her time and they didn't take their eyes of one another so intense! His hand over hers as he guides it to the stone. My heart broke. Cait and Sam deserve Emmys!
At the end when Claire finds out Jaimie didn't die the Joy then the torment of lost years. I can not wait for season three.
The heartbreak of goodbye.
The raw emotion of losing Faith. I cried my eyes out. Having gone through the same experience, it effected me greatly. Knowing the love is there, but having to get past the grief...

Loved every episode, but Prestonpans showed the emotions that the men were feeling prior to and after the battle. I was particularly moved by the goodbye scene between Claire and the Highlanders. The passionate goodbye kisses between Claire and Jamie, and the eloquent bow he gave her, showed just how much he loved and honored her. Their embrace after the battle, the way they looked at each other told it all, and how she lovingly embraced Fergus as well showed deep emotion. The painful loss of best friends was so very sad, especially Angus. It really caught me off guard. The one particular scene between Jamie and the English soldier was very memorable (filling the bottle). It showed that for that one moment, no animosity or war exited between them, just two ordinary, friendly men wagering a bet and having some friendly fun.
