Outlander Season 7 Episode 2 Recap
Claire returns to Fraser’s Ridge from Wilmington as a free woman with Jamie in the opening moments of Outlander Season 7 Episode 2, “The Happiest Place on Earth,” a recap episode. She runs upon Allan Christie, who is upset as he sits by the grave of his half-sister Malva. Allan reveals to Claire that they had a sexual relationship and that, contrary to the girl’s claims, he was the father of Malva’s child. He also says that he coerced Malva into accusing Jamie in an effort to pay the Scotsman money to put an end to the situation. When Malva became overwhelmed with guilt and decided to tell the Frasers the truth, Allan killed her. Claire prevents Allan from committing suicide when he tries. However, Young Ian, who hears the entire exchange, shoots him dead with an arrow.
A significant amount of time after Claire’s release from prison, Bree gives birth to a daughter who will later be known as Amanda “Mandy” MacKenzie, adding another addition to the Fraser family. When Claire hears the newborn baby’s heartbeat and observes blue markings on his or her fingernails, she learns that the infant has a cardiac issue that prevents the heart from flowing blood to the rest of the body. The nurse informs her daughter that there is nothing she can do to save Amanda because she is unable to do surgery. Bree makes the decision to travel back in time, along with her husband Roger and son Jeremiah “Jem” MacKenzie, in order to save the life of her daughter.
The Frasers depart from the Ridge so that Bree and her family can use the stones to journey into the future. Bree encounters William Ransom and Lord John Grey, where she discovers the latter’s fervour for defending his nation. She questions John about whether keeping William’s biological father’s identity a secret from him is unjust to William. When John eventually meets Jamie, she supports his decision to raise William without disclosing his real father. Jamie is questioned by John on his choice to take on the Crown and his son. They agree to put off their next meeting as friends for a while after Jamie lets his pal know that he doesn’t want to reverse his decision.
Outlander Season 7 Episode 2 Ending: Do Brianna and Roger Go Back to the Future? Will They Meet Claire and Jamie Again?
The 20th century is where Brianna and Roger end up after travelling back in time. Bree and Roger originally believe they are unable to travel into the past because they are unsure of Jem’s paternity. The Frasers originally think Jem’s father is a rapist before realising they are mistaken. Bree and Roger learn that Jem is actually their son during their vacation to Edenton, making the youngster a “traveller.” The family is concerned about Amanda, a tiny infant, passing through the stones, but they later discover that it is doable.
Bree and her family, including Amanda, end up in the twentieth century after passing through a stone. Their return to the future is verified when they observe an aeroplane in the sky. Since Bree and her family left, Claire has been in excruciating pain. She is unable to accept the fact that she will likely never see her daughter again. She is urged by Jamie to take solace in the fact that Bree and her family are still alive. Claire makes an effort to act similarly in the hopes that her granddaughter lives. The ‘Outlander’ novels by Diana Gabaldon, which serve as the show’s inspiration materials, claim that Amanda survives the threat to her life.
The choice made by Bree and Roger to travel back in time preserves the life of their daughter Amanda. We can also anticipate Claire and Jamie’s reunion with Bree and her family if the series stays true to the literature. Bree, Roger, Jem, and Amanda travel back in time to be with Claire and Jamie as the novel series’ eighth installment, “Written in My Own Heart’s Blood,” comes to a close.
Are Jamie and Claire Dead or Alive?
After Bree and her family return to the 20th century, Claire one day runs across Wendigo Donner and a bunch of men at her home. Donner breaks down vials of ether while searching for gemstones that will allow him to go back in time. Jamie and Claire are inside the house when a fire breaks out due to a matchstick explosion. The ‘Outlander’ novels by Diana Gabaldon, however, state that Jamie and Claire are expected to survive the catastrophe. The pair in “A Breath of Snow and Ashes” escapes the blaze.
The novel describes Jamie and Claire’s escape as “Jamie seized my arm and hurled me towards the door; I staggered out, fell into the blackberry bushes, and rolled through them, thrashing and flailing at my smoking skirts.” The fire kills Donner and his troops even if the pair escapes it. After escaping the fire, Jamie and Claire are depicted as making an important decision about their future. They plan to take Young Ian to Scotland. Jamie will probably make an effort to return to America with his printing press as well. The cause of Jamie and Claire’s trip to Scotland was the fire and its aftermath, which opens the door for various unexpected occurrences that drastically alter their life.
