Outlander (2020): S05E01 – The Fiery Cross


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.


After the celebrations in honour of Brianna and Roger’s wedding, Governor Tryon reminds Jamie of his obligation to persecute and kill Murtagh Fitzgibbons. He also expects him to raise a militia to subdue the Regulators if necessary. Meanwhile, Brianna is reminded of her past trauma when she inadvertently hears some devastating news. Roger is tested by Jochasta, who implies he should remember that even though he is not his blood relative, Bree’s son is the heir to River Run and his marriage to her will eventually pay off. To Jocosta’s pleasure, he tells her off. Jamie, now a colonel in the King’s army, takes the pledges of Scots to serve in his Army, to include his appointment of Roger as captain. Jamie faces Murtagh, telling him he must flee as he is obligated by honour to fulfil the governor’s order.
