    I was surprised to see that so many people chose "Fergus's last name", but I'm sure that was influenced by Sam Heughan and César Domboy's portrayal of that bit in OUTLANDER Episode 311, "Uncharted", which was just as I'd always imagined from the book.
    Here are the responses for "Other":

    Hi Karen Jamie was such a wonderful caring person and gave Calire many thoughtful gifts over the years that it was hard to choose but I think the ones that meant the most to Claire were the pearl necklace and the silver ring he gave her when they were first wed and then Adso the kitten was sweet and Jamie giving Fergus his last name , so I choose those , Happy New Year to you and may 2108 be the best year for you and all Outlander fans , will be watching season 4 in 2018 . hope you so too . please post more soon. Sincerely .
