Outlander 2×13 Dragonfly in Amber
The final episode of Outlander’s second series opens in Scotland in 1968 where a grown-up Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin) attends the wake of his recently deceased stepfather. Amongst those paying their respects to the late Reverend are also a visibly aged Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her adult daughter, Brianna (Sophie Skelton).
Back in 18th century Scotland the morning of the Battle of Culloden has come. Jamie (Sam Heughan) fails in his last desperate attempt to sway the Prince’s (Andrew Gower) decision to postpone the attack. Jamie and Claire are discussion taking more drastic steps to stop the onslaught from happening when they are interrupted by Jamie’s uncle Dougal (Graham McTavish).
When Jamie realizes that they have run out of options and history will take its course, he uses the last hours before the battle to make sure at least his loved ones and those under his protection are provided for: he sends his men back to his estate Lallybroch and returns with Claire to the stones of Craigh na Dun so she and their unborn child can be safe.
