In less than two weeks, your favorite time traveling, historical drama is back. That’s right, Outlander returns with part 1 of a two-part season. Starting on Friday, June 16, 2023, Claire Fraser (Caitríona Balfe), Jamie Fraser (Caitríona Balfe), Brianna (Sophie Skelton), and Roger (Richard Rankin) and the we-ans return with the American Revolution boiling up. What a time to be alive.
(Spoilers) New Faces – The Hunters and the Secret Son
Brother and sister Quakers, who were put out at meeting, Denzell (Joey Phillips) and Rachel Hunter (Izzy Meikle-Small), make their debut this season. Claire gains a doctor friend in young Denzell, one that sees her as an equal, a surgeon for the rebel army. His sister Rachel, and her “plainspeak” charm, not to mention the pure beauty of her soul, will knock the breeks off both Young Ian (John Bell) and the young Earl of Ransome (Charles Vandervaart), Jamie’s son, who has now grown and taken his comission in the army. What is Jamie to do when he cannot acknowledge publically his son, and fears that he may meet him across a battle field.
Sometimes the knowledge of history is a benefit, and sometimes not. Not to be left behind in drama in any way, Brianna and Roger welcome another child. With all the dangers of child birth in the 18th century, and a war brewing. They will face many trials, as the realities of having one child they know can travel back through the stones is one hope. A new child that is an unknown traveller raises several other questions. After all, the 1970s seems a much safer place than Revolutionary America does. Or is it? Stay tuned as the MacKenzie’s face religion, war, and time travel together.
Claire Steps In It, Again
Claire and Jamie are in a constant situation of rescuing each other. How many times will it happen this season? Not enough for big fans of the duo. As of last season, we left Claire in the gaol, accused of the murder of Alva Christie. With the mystery of why Thom Christie (Mark Lewis Jones) was so adamant that he assure Claire’s safety, will we get the burning question answered? Who did kill Malva Christie? Of course not to forget that Jamie had been split from her by the dastardly Brown’s, only to be rescued by Young Ian and Chief Bird (Glen Gould). Will they be able to save Claire?
Frazer’s Ridge goes through another alliance shift, as the reality of the Crown v. The Colonies hits home. Some favor the crown and their allgiance is strong, others question their treatment under The Crown. It will divide Fraser’s Ridge, as residents pick sides.
Returning and New Cast This Season
That wicked pair Dougal Mackenzie (Graham McTavish) and Gellis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek) return in flashbacks. And not to forgotten, the curse of Laoghaire MacKenzie (Nell Hudson), hapless daughter Joan (Layla Burns), and Ian Murray (Steven Cree), with a recast Jenny (Kristin Atherton), and Brian Fraser (Andrew Whipp). New characters include Mercy Woodcock (Gloria Obiyano), Buck MacKenzie (Diarmaid Murtagh), and Rob Cameron (Chris Fulton). And our famous blast from the past, Benedict Arnold (Rob Hallett).
And of course wee Adso, not so wee anymore.
