We’ve got over a month to go, but everybody can hold on that long, can’t we? Bree & Roger are coming! This good news press release landed in my mailbox today:
Beverly Hills, Calif. – June 6, 2016 –Starz, in association with Sony Pictures Television, has announced today that the Outlander Book Two finale will air on Saturday, July 9th at 9 pm ET/PT as an epic 90-minute episode. Fans will be treated to an extra 30 minutes in the finale episode titled “Dragonfly in Amber,” namesake to the second of eight books in Diana Gabaldon’s international bestselling Outlander book series on which this season is based.
Highly-anticipated characters, “Brianna” and “Roger Wakefield,” previously announced to be played by Sophie Skelton (“Foyle’s War”) and Richard Rankin (Burnt), respectively, will be introduced in the finale episode.
Ahead of the Book Two finale, Starz will be showing a marathon of the first twelve episodes of Book Two beginning Saturday, July 2nd at 12pm ET/PT giving viewers the chance to relive the season thus far and get ready for the mega-finale the following week on Saturday, July 9th.
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.
I think we need to lobby Kimberly-Clark Corp. to make Outlander-themed Kleenex boxes! I have no doubt that we’ll need a lot of it as the rest of the season goes by.
