I might be completely crazy, and my listening skills are certainly not up to scratch, but I could swear she was saying たやがしうる and not たがやしうる。 I looked up たやがす, too, just to make sure it wasn’t an alternate reading or something.

It’s okay if I’m crazy.

if a verb stem ends with え is it more likely to be うる or am I reading too much into the examples?

I think you are reading too much into it (though maybe don’t fully trust me since I’m making an informed guess). うる is the classical Japanese reading of 得る so it will be more rare to show up and likely has some set phrases where it appears.
