Outlander Season 4 Episode 9 Recap
In the previous episode of Starz’s Outlander, Stephen Bonnet raped Brianna after she turned Roger away. Meanwhile, Jamie thwarted a plan against Murtagh and the Regulators. In Outlander season 4 episode 9, Brianna found Jamie and Claire and returned with them to Fraser’s Ridge while Roger left with on the Gloriana.
Brianna found Jamie in Wilmington after Lizzie heard about what happened at the theater. He brought her to Claire, and after a happy reunion, she told them about the fire. Brianna met Young Ian, whom Lizzie liked, and he told her about the incident with Stephen Bonnet. At the cabin, Murtagh was waiting since he couldn’t stay in Wilmington. They told family stories around the table, and Brianna joined their life in Fraser’s Ridge for a couple of months. Jamie learned that Frank taught Brianna to shoot. Brianna discovered that “Bree” meant “a disturbance”. Brianna told Claire that Frank had known about the fire and that she had gone back to Jamie.
Claire suggested Jamie take Brianna hunting, so they could spend time together. They found a bee hive, which they brought back. Jamie explained how grateful he was for Frank and told Brianna she could call him “Da”. Jamie wished Brianna could stay, but Claire insisted the ’70s would be safer and would provide more opportunities for her.
Claire figured out that Brianna was pregnant. Brianna confirmed she was two months along. She confessed that the baby might not be Roger’s. She told Claire about the man who raped her the same night she was with Roger. And Claire told Jamie. While in Brianna’s shelter, Claire found her original wedding ring from Jamie. She confronted Brianna, who admitted that it was Stephen Bonnet who had raped her. Brianna hadn’t mentioned him for fear that Jamie would blame himself and go after Bonnet.
Before Journey’s End
Roger had gone back to the tavern to meet Brianna, but she hadn’t come down yet. Stephen Bonnet was still there, and he reminded Roger of his duties. The Gloriana’s next port was Philadelphia, and if he wasn’t on the ship when it departed, he would lose a limb. He forced Roger to leave with them, but Brianna assumed he had sailed back to Scotland to go back through the stones.
When Roger was finally able to leave, Bonnet paid him his wages. He asked for some to be paid in a gem or two for passage through the stones, and Bonnet agreed. Roger went to Fraser’s Ridge to find Brianna. Unfortunately, Lizzie was out with Young Ian. She thought that it was Roger who had raped Brianna and told Ian and Jamie. Jamie left to beat him and told Lizzie not to tell Claire or Brianna. Some tenants passed by on the road, so he told Ian to get rid of him.
