Warning! Spoilers below for Sunday night’s episode of Outlander!

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.

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.

Warning! Spoilers for the season finale of Outlander below.

Last week on Outlander, Claire and Jamie Fraser (Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan) were back in Lallybroch, along with Fergus and Murtagh (Romann Berrux, Duncan Lacroix), after Paris broke them. Being with Jenny and Ian (Laura Donnelly, Steven Cree) and the kids started to heal them. Bad news followed as Prince Charles sent a missive that declares his father the rightful king, and he forged Jamie’s signature. The Frasers decided if “they can’t beat em, join em,” to hopefully turn the future defeat and massacre into victory. They tried to get his grandfather, “the fox,” to join, but he was clever and managed to play both sides through his son. Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) tried to make amends.

Last week on Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) interfered with Mary Hawkins and Alex Randall (Rosie Day and Laurence Dobiesz), by convincing Alex to leave the girl. Prince Charles (Andrew Gower) came up with another scheme to get the money, and it involved partnering Jamie (Sam Heughan) with the Comte (Stanley Weber). Claire ran into BlackJack Randall (Tobias Menzies) at Versailles, and they exchanged hostile pleasantries after the shock. The King (Lionel Lingelser) showed up and humiliated Randall to the delight of Jamie, who strolled up just in time. After the king and entourage leave, Jamie set a time to duel with Randall, and then fought about it with Claire later. He angrily agreed to not kill him for Frank.

Outlander last week found the star-swept couple in a very tense situation in their own home at Lallybroch. “The Watch,” kind of like the Scottish Mafia, came to the home to get some dinner, and were suspicious of Jaime (Sam Heughan) from the start. Of course, hothead that he is, he took exception to them being crass, setting a wagon of hay on fire, and generally being asses. The main guy was not so bad. MacQuarrie (Douglas Henshall), who recognized a solid man in Jaime, so much so that he did not bat an eye when Jaime (really Ian – Steven Cree), killed a hired hand who recognized Jaime and the fat price on his head. The men went out on a mission. Only Ian, limping home because his fake leg was missing and the guy who helped him came back. Jaime and MacQuarrie had been captured.

Let’s recap what’s come before for our lovely time traveling WWII nurse, and her love, the strapping Highlander, before reviewing last night’s episode. Spoiler alert!

Outlander is back! This time traveling, romantic, multiperiod series, based on Diana Galbadon’s multibook collection (she is currently working on book 9!), had us sighing in our plaids. When we last left our favorite couple way back in September, James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) were in a bit of a pickle, as Claire had run away in an effort to get back to the magic stone formations of Craigh na Dun and back to her 1940s husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies). And she almost made it. We had seen Frank try to find Claire and go to the other side of time at the rocks. They almost heard each other and found each other when she was captured by Black Jack Randall’s men. Black Jack had just readied himself to force himself on Claire when…
