Outlander Episode 205 – Untimely Resurrection – The Gàidhlig Bits I Could Decipher

Sorry for falling behind everyone, but the Gaelic has been few and far between at the French Court! I promise I will go back and do a catchup post for all the little words here and there in episodes 202-204, but in the meantime here is the answer to everyone’s burning question from Episode 205 regarding the Gaelic oath that Jamie says during the argument with Claire in the final scene.

25:23  Jamie handing Claire the spoon case

Seo – this

27:46 Jamie telling Claire he loves her, too. <sigh>

mo nighean donn – my brown-haired lass

46:38  Gaelic Oath

Donas dubh nan seachd sitigean – Black Devil of the seven middens

I’ve also received questions the last few weeks regarding a word that Jamie uses frequently that sounds like ‘shaw’.  In some cases, I translate it as seo/this or an seo/here. I made a comment on Twitter yesterday about Sam Heughan throwing that word in often. Sam responded and said he also uses Seadh or yes, as well. The two words can sound very similar (show vs shug) so you have to judge on context.

  1. Hello! Love your blog. It’s so helpful! I’m replying here because I can find no other way to reach you. Just wanted to say I know you’re a few episodes behind but I’d love to know the words Jamie says to the Baird in Eps 208.
    Keep up the great work!
