The fact that it’s too painful for Jamie to even speak Claire’s name – and that he hasn’t spoken it in years – shows the profound magnitude of his loss.

Mirrored only by Claire’s inability to utter Jamie’s name – let alone share anything about him, with anyone.

At least Jamie has others – Murtagh, Ian, Jenny, Fergus, even John Grey and Mary MacNab – to speak Claire’s name, to honor her, to keep her alive for him.

Claire has Brianna, of course – but is cursed to never be able to speak about him, although she sees him in their daughter every single day.

This painting depicts the death of Sakyamuni, the historical Buddha, in 438 B.C. The Indian prince turned sage is shown lying on his side, having delivered his final teachings. At the moment of his death, the Buddha was said to enter nirvana. Around him are his disciples in monks’ robes, a group of five bodhisattvas with golden-yellow skin, guardian deities, monks, laymen, and animal beings. All are shown expressing profound grief. The square “Kunju” relief seal dates this painting to a time before Itchō was exiled to a small island in Izu province in 1699.
