Added DiffLines:

* BrideAndSwitch: In ''The Keeper of the Bees'', a young woman tells Jamie there is an unborn baby who needs a father. Jamie assumes she's speaking of herself and, having fallen in love with her on sight, agrees to marry her. When they call him to collect the baby, the mother is not the girl he married; [[spoiler: it's her sister.]]
