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.
Brianna gives birth to a boy at River Run. Jamie, Claire, and Young Ian arrive at the Mohawk settlement in the Province of New York, but the natives are alarmed by the stone pendant Claire is wearing and send the Frasers away. A group of Mohawk come to Jamie and Claire’s camp seeking the stone, which belonged to a former member of their tribe who had prophesied the destruction of the Mohawk. Claire had previously determined from his skull that the man was also a time traveller. The Frasers convince the group to help them free Roger. They are caught in the attempt, but ultimately Young Ian offers himself as a replacement for Roger. On the journey back to North Carolina, Claire tells Roger about Brianna’s rape and pregnancy, giving him the chance to decide if he can raise a child that may not be his. Brianna is devastated when Claire and Jamie return to River Run alone, but Roger appears before they depart for Fraser’s Ridge and declares his love for Brianna. Jamie receives a letter from Governor Tryon telling him to find and kill the leader of the Regulators: Murtagh.
