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.

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

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 week on Outlander, Jamie (Sam Heughan) finally told Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) the whole crazy time-traveling story, after he got angry about the duel being called off. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) went to warn Master Raymond (Dominique Pinon) about the king gunning for practitioners of the dark arts. They set up fake smallpox at the Comte’s (Stanley Weber) ship, and even had Murtagh play bandit when that did not work. Jamie went to duel with Randall (Tobias Menzies), which resulted in Claire screaming, bleeding, and fainting, Jamie sticking a sword in Randall’s groin, and both men arrested.

Last week on Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) found a purpose at last with help from Master Raymond (Dominique Pinon). She started volunteering at the charity hospital, proving her worth and knowledge to Mother Hildegarde (Frances de la Tour). Jamie (Sam Heughan) was none too happy, as he needed his wife to talk through the muck of intrigue in the court of Paris. Prince Charles (Andrew Gower) found his funding to Jamie’s distress. He hired a boy, Fergus (Romann Berrux), to steal correspondence so he could copy it and have the boy put it back. Claire realized that Frank (Tobias Menzies) was a descendent of Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day) and Black Jack. Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) told her she had to tell Jamie that Randall was still alive.

Let’s recap last week’s Outlander, before we get to this week’s review.

Previously on Outlander, Jaime (Sam Heughan) is hopeful the Duke of Sandringham (Simon Callow) can help clear his name, but Claire (Caitriona Balfe) knows from other husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) that the Duke is a secret friend of BlackJack Randall. She goes without Jaime’s knowledge to use that leverage. Claire finds a baby left for the “fairies” and mourns. Geillis (Lotte Verbeek) reveals she is having Dougal’s (Graham McTavish) baby. Good thing both their spouses “accidentally” died. Colum (Gary Lewis) squashes that love connection by banishing Dougal, sending Jaime to accompany him. Laoghaire (Nell Hudson) sets Claire up so she would be arrested for witchcraft along with Geillis.
