Last week on Outlander, Roger (Richard Rankin) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton) grew closer as the trail to Jamie grew hotter then hit a dead end. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) gave up and went back to Boston, a sad Brianna in tow. In the past, Jamie went to work for the Dunsany family where the youngest daughter blackmailed him into taking her virginity before she married an old man. It was eventually found out and Jamie (Sam Heughan) saved the baby, his baby, from being killed by the crazed old man. He stayed on to be near the boy, leaving only when the resemblance could no longer be hidden. He asked Lord John Grey (David Berry) to take care of his boy, who considered it an honor, and went back home to Lallybroch.

Last week on Outlander, Lord John Grey (David Berry) arrived at Ardsmuir prison, where Jamie (Sam Heughan) was held, the leader of the prisoners. He attempted to connect, rebuffed at first, but Jamie agreed to occasional meetings to better the conditions for the men, especially Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix). When a sick man came spouting words of gold and the “white witch,” Jamie ran away to see what was what. Grey showed affection to Jamie, who shut it down. Lord Grey set Jamie free (of sorts) to work for a family under an assumed name. Claire and Frank (Caitriona Balfe, Tobias Menzies) no longer pretended to have a marriage, but when Frank’s mistress accidentally showed up too early during Claire’s graduation party, they fought. Once Brianna (Sophie Skelton) graduated high school, Frank asked Claire for a divorce and said he thought Brianna would go with him. Frank died in a car accident and Claire said goodbye.

Last time on Outlander, Jamie (Sam Heughan) was a wild man living in a cave near Lallybroch while his family covered for him. He grunted more than he spoke. The British harassed them often. The soldiers cut off Fergus’s (Romann Berrux) hand after he taunted them into chasing him. Jamie saved Fergus and finally allowed himself to feel emotion at all he had lost. Jamie decided to have Jenny (Laura Donnelly) turn him in to stop the madness. They took him away. Claire and Frank (Caitriona Balfe, Tobias Menzies) navigated their tension filled marriage, Frank knowing Claire thought of Jamie when they were intimate. The only real bonding occurred over baby Brianna. Claire went to her first day in medical school and faced resentment and anger from the white males. The only kindness was extended from the only black male in her class.

Warning! Spoilers below for Outlander!

Last time on Outlander, we saw what happened at Culloden and to Claire (Caitriona Balfe) after she went back to the 1940s through the stones. Jamie and BlackJack Randall (Sam Heughan, Tobias Menzies) found each other amongst the battle din, and savagely slashed at each other until they both fell. When Jamie awoke, BlackJack was dead and the British were stabbing the men that were still alive. Jamie was rescued for a very brief time with some other survivors, but the British found them and started killing them one by one. When it was his turn and he gave his full name, the man in charge could not kill him. He was the brother of the boy Jamie spared, john Grey and it was a debt of honor. Although no one believed he would survive the journey, Jamie made it to Lallybroch and his family.

Two weeks ago on Outlander, Jonathan Randall and Mary Hawkins (Tobias Menzies and Rosie Day) married as Alex Randall’s (Laurence Dobiesz) dying wish, then BlackJack furiously punched his brother’s corpse. Colum (Gary Lewis) came to the war to name Jamie (Sam Heughan) Laird McKenzie before killing himself with poison that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) reluctantly gave him. Dougal (Graham McTavish) was a mess. Jamie made a last ditch effort to avoid the Battle of Culloden, to no avail. And now… what we have all been waiting for.

Last week’s Outlander felt just like the sweeping epic novels, with author Diana Gabaldon wielding her pen as if inside the war. The group was attacked, and Jamie, Claire (Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe), and their small band had to find refuge in a chapel. Poor Rupert (Grant O’Rourke) got shot in the eye, but survived (unlike the novel). They were surrounded, but played the tried and true, “Help! I’m a hostage!” card thanks to Claire again, and were able to bargain for their lives. The craziest part was that the soldiers brought her to the Duke of Sandringham’s (Simon Callow) place for safety, where Mary (Rosie Day) was staying too. He planned to marry her off. The Duke tried to get Claire to send for Jamie to help them both escape, but it was a trap. Even worse was that it was the Duke who was behind the attack in France. The episode ended in a satisfying crunch, as birthmark guy got stabbed by Mary, and Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) came in and sliced and diced the Duke. Vengeance was his.

Last week on Outlander, the Jacobites and the Redcoats were at an impasse, and a giant swamp was blocking them. Dougal (Graham McTavish) managed to impress Prince Charles (Andrew Gower) by foolishly braving the bog to test the redcoat bullet range. It didn’t work, but a native to that area showed them a sneaky way around it. A vicious battle ensued and the Scottish were victorious, but they lost Angus. Dougal quickly lost the prince’s favor, when he wanted to massacre the POWs. He was exiled, but Jamie (Sam Heughan) stepped up for him. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) hugged Fergus (Romann Berrux) with relief and pain when he returned safe from the battle he had snuck into, but in shock because he killed a man.

Last week on Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) had severe WWII flashbacks in the midst of prepping the army, who are sorely in need of training. When she finally talked about it with Jamie (Sam Heughan), she felt a bit better, but war is ugly no matter who wins. One of the most pivotal moments in the books happened last week, as a young (John) William Grey was captured and spilled all for fear of Claire’s “honor.” Jamie spared him and he is now in his debt. Dougal (Graham McTavish) arrived at the camp with his men, and was really proud of Jamie for joining the cause. Of course, Dougal got in trouble often because he is Dougal. Jamie took a whipping and thus was an example of a true leader.

Spoilers below.
