Shut. The fuck. Up.
Sandor Clegane in Season 3 Episode 5 Kissed by Fire
The Mysterious Ballachulish Goddess
Ballachulish means village of the narrows. There has always been a settlement here at the narrows as far back as Neolithic times as the soil was fertile from the deposits brought down after the last ice-age and it was the most likely place to cross. There is evidence of Crannog constructions in the backfield behind the hotel that was once a fresh water pond. These early buildings were constructed on water as some protection from marauding tribes.
The most significant find is the “Ballachulish Goddess”, a wooden figurine about 4 feet in length found in the 1890s and since dated at 626 BC. The Goddess can be seen in the Scottish Museum in Edinburgh..

That is a great idea especially for places that bicycles are the only modes of transportation.

Is there anyone watching Outlander who also watched Babylon 5 when it was on. There are a couple of comparisons that I really want to talk about.
It has been awhile for Babylon 5 for me.
My main comparison centers around BJR flogging Jamie; and his complete lack of any emotion. And Lord Refa whipping G’Kar, and wanting him just to scream.
Oh I remembered that. You are correct about the comparisons there. Jaime was not giving the Black Jack the satisfaction of crying out.
There is a certain level of sociopathy in the two characters (BJR and Refa) ‘cause you could tell that BJR wanted Jamie to cry out. They both needed that power over their victims. Now I just need a Vir character (either Angus or Rupert) to do the whole ‘One day I’ll see your head on a spike, I’ll look up at you and wave, like this…’. I really would love that to be a thing.
Also I’m curious as to BJR’s motivation behind punching Claire in the stomach. I get that part of it is just his complete lack of understanding the human condition/how human beings preceive emotion. But I kind of wonder if part of it wasn’t to, in his mind, induce a miscarriage. Since she’d been amongst the Scot’s for so long and it had been speculated that she was sleeping with one (or more) of them. He would see it as a punishment to her (taking away what could be a connection piece to the Mackenzies), and punishment to the Mackenzie’s (taking away a possible heir). I’ve gotten off track with my comparison to Babylon 5. And I know if given more time I know I’ll come up with more. But for now that’s it.
What I have read from the book is BJ inner demon in regards to his sexuality. Maybe from a harsh mother figure or a father figure. His brutality with Claire and Jaime.
