Within the season’s first episode, we noticed Jamie (Sam Heughan) tackle the place of Indian Agent for the Crown, primarily as a result of he did not need Richard Brown (Chris Larkin) within the function as an alternative. We begin “Allegiance” with Jamie fulfilling his Indian Agent obligations by touring with Ian (John Bell) to fulfill with the Cherokee. 

The Cherokee understandably need weapons from the Crown and a promise that their land will not get taken from them by the brand new settlers. Jamie, nonetheless, is conflicted in whether or not he’ll convey their request — he is aware of there is a revolution coming and that he’ll be combating towards the Redcoats when it does. If he conveys the Cherokee’s needs to his native Redcoat liaison Main Macdonald, the Cherokee might combat towards the revolutionaries down the highway, one thing that Jamie needs to stop.

When Jamie and Ian come again from their journey (after a humorous scene when a bashful Jamie politely refuses the advances of two Cherokee ladies), Jamie decides not convey the request to Main MacDonald.

Since Ian is Jamie’s household, this makes the Indians his household by extension. And so he alters his thoughts about relaying the Cherokee’s request for weapons to the Crown. Is Jamie altering historical past by doing so? We do not know but, though the momentous music that performs when Jamie seals the letter to the Crown suggests he could also be.
