Tobias displayed his enormous range as and actor in this OUTLANDER episode, in which I might have gone a bit overboard with the screencaps. Tobias went through so many facial changes as Jack here I had to post more than I likely would have. This might be the trend for the rest of his OUTLANDER tenure. While I adore Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser), Tobias always stuns and provokes with his mesmerizing portrayal of these two characters. The way Tobias revealed Black Jack’s character in his almost sexual pleasure in scourging Jamie was frightening. His description of how he felt as the whip struck Jamie’s back causing the judder up Jack’s arm to “explode” into his chest… Then the ending when Jack made the remark about the “masterpiece” he and “that boy” created….. Only a master can speak words like that and make them come alive off the page.
