I was recently watching the latest episode of the Starz TV series, Outlander, episode 4.06 titled, Blood of my Blood.
In the episode there are a series of interrelated scenes featuring
Claire and Lord John Grey. shortly after Lord John's surprise visit, Claire begins to tend to Lord John's illness when Lord John acquires the measles. The two characters begin to have an exchange, instigated by Lord John, but taken further by Claire in which Claire contests Lord John's true intentions about coming to visit Jaime at Fraser's Ridge, leaving them both hurt and bit devastated. More scenes between them follow continuing the conversation as it evolves through stages of Lord John's sickness and recovery. They both care deeply for Jaime
Because I feel like I have seen scenes like this before, I was wondering if there is name or a trope for scenes in which two characters that happen to love another character, that is also the same character, come to confront and contest each other on that love they say have for this other character?
