Hey Obsassenachs! This week on The Sassenach Files podcast, I’m chatting about 604: “Hour of The Wolf.” Join me as I dive into Ian’s time with the Mohawk and the relationships he formed with Kaheroton and Emily, and how the loss of his daughter has impacted his mental state over the course of the season. I also discuss the parallels drawn between Ian and Jamie, Jamie’s predicament in telling Chief Bird about the future of the Snowbird Cherokee, and a few things that bothered me about this episode including the portrayal of Scotchee Cameron.
