Outlander is an historical drama television series based on the ongoing novel series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon.
Developed by Ronald D. Moore, the show premiered on 09 August 2014, on Starz. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married former World War II military nurse in Scotland who, in 1945, finds herself transported back to 1743. There she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a member of Gabaldon’s fictionalised version of Clan Fraser of Lovat, and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite rising.
While Fergus plots to break Murtagh out of jail in Wilmington, Brianna insists that Lord John bring her to confront Stephen, who has been incarcerated in the same place. She confronts Stephen and offers her forgiveness, though swearing that her baby will never know he existed. A badly injured Roger meets Father Alexandre Ferigault, another captive. He had lived among the Mohawk and fathered a child with one of them, Johiehon, but due to his sin felt unworthy to baptise the baby. Alexandre is tortured but will not perform the ritual, and is finally subjected to the painfully slow and deadly burning of his feet at the stake. Roger escapes, but comes back to throw accelerant on the fire to put Alexandre out of his misery. Johiehon puts down her baby and joins Alexandre in the flames. As a chained Stephen scrambles to reach a dropped set of keys, Fergus and Murtagh send Brianna and John away and then flee the jail, which they destroy with explosives to cover their flight.
