"The Wedding" Claire and Jamie are thrown together in marriage, but as their emotional and physical relationship unfolds, deeper feelings arise. Claire is ultimately torn between two men in two very different times.
Hayden-Hoyle realizes that Nessa has been manipulated to become a martyr by both Monica Chatwin, working for the Americans and Jalal El-Amin, working for the same Palestinian cell as Atika and Al-Zahid. He also discovers that Samir Meshal had been murdered by the Americans to stop this revelation.
Despite being feared dead, Nessa re-emerges in the West Bank, from where she makes a final attempt to find Kasim and bring him home. Now, with her life in imminent danger, Nessa must rely on her former enemies if she wants to make it out alive.
"Rent" Claire joins the MacKenzie rent-collecting trip. To her horror, Dougal uses Jamie's scars to gain sympathy for the Jacobite cause. Claire recalls that a defining moment in Scottish history is fast approaching.
Returning to the present day, it is Atika and Nessa's secret that the mysterious telephone voice is using to threaten Nessa. Meanwhile, at a University in Israel a computer science professor uncovers a corrupt admissions policy whereby Arab students are being denied places on courses in favor of Israelis.
"The Way Out" Claire decides to use her medical skills to aid her escape from Castle Leoch - with Jamie's help, she tends to an ill child. During an evening's entertainment, a story gives Claire hope for her freedom.
Going back eight years, we see a younger Hayden-Hoyle making his way to the top of the spy business via an affair with current MI6 chief, Dame Julia Walsh who herself has made a pact with the ambitious Monica Chatwin who is now eyeing the top job. We also see how Ephra once controlled the Stein Empire and Nessa's consequent abduction in Gaza with Atika.
In a flashback to eight years ago, Nessa makes a peace-keeping mission trip to the West Bank and Gaza that goes awry when she endures a traumatic experience that will put her political future at risk forever.
