I'm curious about Claire saying "I hope Mr. MacTavish is feeling better." A few sentences later it is explained Mr. MacTavish is "Young Jamie." Did I miss something? I couldn't ever recall Claire being told that was his surname.

I'm sure someone has explained this on the forum but I'm not sure where to find it.

Have you read the Outlandish Companion? I think that's where I saw that continuity error. I think we are to asume he or someone told her that was his name off-screen.

Justamuggle, I had the same question several years ago. Demetria is right that in the Outlander Companion Gabaldon noted that in the process of editing, some details were omitted, which would have explained the use of two surnames for Jamie.

Here is a link to our discussion of this confusion on the Outlander Book Club.

Thanks for the answer:). I haven't read the Outlandish Companion, but perhaps it would be worthwhile to pickup.
