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.>>>

What frustrates me is that they have released some specific details about the last ep sooooo early! This has to anger non book fans...I know I would be upset. Even as a book reader I do want a *little* mystery to how they will end this season.
With that, I am still really excited for the upcoming episodes! The Scotland episodes have been the Outlander we expect to see on screen, the show is in a good place right now...thank goodness!

I have not read the books......ok but just to say concerning STARZ, if I only had one channel on TV or APP it would be STARZS!! The best series ever are all on Starz. The movies etc. are a bonus but the series are outstanding!! The GFE could be renewed I think but the others have to stay. OUTLANDER, BLACKSAILS,POWER these are just exceptional series!!! So THANK YOU to the studio, actors, all the behind the scenes people. Wardrobe is excellent on all these shows. Back to OUTLANDER it is an absolute favorite where all the right things have come together so far, location, casting, wardrobe, writers and I LOVE " The After The Episode" that is really special too. Thank you for giving us two more seasons and the 90 minute finale should be kept on a series. After all we waited with bated breath to get that far so a bit of "Laginappe" as we say in Louisiana really goes a long way with the viewers. The meaning is "a little something extra" not required just selfless giving.
