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 inter-cut 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. Written by Sai

Did You Know?


The goof for this episode claims Brianna could not have attended Harvard at the time they claim she did. In actual fact The Harvard Graduate School of Education first admitted women as early as 1920. Harvard Medical School accepted its first female enrollees in 1945 and Harvard Law School opened its doors to females in 1950. See more »


Brianna could not have been going to Harvard in 1968: They didn't admit for another nine years. See more »


Brianna Randall Fraser: Just admit it! Admit that you are not a perfect person. Own up to the fact that you fucked someone else while you were married to Daddy. Just like a million other bored housewives.
Claire Randall: I was not bored! And what Jamie and I had was a hell of a lot more than fucking! He was the love of my life!

Strange observations of a good episode
20 October 2019 | by UnknownianSee all my reviews

This will be short, and not too sweet. My first observation is, I think the creators, cast and crew think this is an episode of epic proportions, and is the favorite of many in the production company. I think it was very good as well, but there were a couple of strange goings on I didn't really get.

First: The men in ancient times (including the King of France) didn't have much stamina in bed. I believe three thrusts was his blasting point. Our hero Jim Fraser actually got four accomplished before he sent Claire back through the stones. There must have been a lot of frustrated women in the 1700s. :-)

On a serious note, I must say that the actress playing Brianna (I won't mention her name here, as not to embarrass her), is perhaps the worst actress I've ever seen in this usually flawlessly acted show. It was the first episode I've ever seen her in, and she truly almost made me change the channel. Perhaps she just needs some acting classes, or at worst, a new profession.
