La Dame Blanche is the fourth episode of Season Two and twentieth episode overall of the Outlander television series.

Claire survives being poisoned and suspects St. Germain but her apothecary friend Master Raymond cannot identify the poison's purchaser. Claire is also surprised by Jamie's reaction to her news regarding Black Jack whilst, learning of Charles's indiscretion with the married Louise Claire and Jamie hope to compromise him into aborting his invasion and throw a dinner party, also inviting the Duke of Sandringham.
