Starz is all about giving us the treats lately. We know that the show has been picked up for Season 3 and 4, so we don’t have to worry about that.
But as season 2 comes to an end, on July 9th, we are getting the treat of a 90 minute episode.
That’s right. 90 minutes. PRAISE BE.
We’re also going to meet “Brianna” and “Roger Wakefield,” played by Sophie Skelton (“Foyle’s War”) and Richard Rankin (Burnt), respectively, in the final episode of the season, appropriately titled, “Dragonfly in Amber.”
EPISODE 213: “Dragonfly in Amber”
Flashing forward to 1968, Claire travels to Scotland with her twenty-year-old daughter, Brianna, and meets Roger Wakefield. Claire visits Lallybroch and Culloden Moor to make peace with the past, while Brianna and Roger bond over researching Randall family history. Claire finally reveals the truth to Brianna about her time travel through the stones, her life in 1700’s Scotland, and Brianna’s true parentage. The story is intercut with another one back in the 18th century, which happens on the day of the Battle of Culloden. When Jamie’s last ditch attempts to deter The Prince fail, he and Claire come up with a dangerous plan – which Dougal overhears, inciting him to a murderous rage. Jamie must do everything he can to save the ones he loves, even if it means saying goodbye to some – or all –of them.
Who is excited?
I mean we’re never excited for a season to end, but we are always excited for more Outlander. We’ll be settling in and live tweeting that night. Will you join us?
