I just had this thought that Claire doesn’t seem to have solid female friendships/relationships other than a mother/daughter one and Mother Hildegard. Whenever she does have one, it’s eventually fraught with betrayal or distrust. Have I missed something?

I don’t believe you have. Her closest friends are Jamie in the 18th century and Joe Abernathy in the 20th century. Maybe because Claire finds it easier to relate to men given that she is so different from her female contemporaries in both centuries?
