Flashing forward to 1968, Claire travels to Scotland with her twenty-year-old daughter, Brianna, and meets Roger Wakefield. Claire visits Lallybroch and Culloden Moor to make peace with the past, while Brianna and Roger bond over researching Randall family history. Claire finally reveals the truth to Brianna about her time travel through the stones, her life in 1700's Scotland, and Brianna's true parentage. The story is inter-cut with another one back in the 18th century, which happens on the day of the Battle of Culloden. When Jamie's last ditch attempts to deter The Prince fail, he and Claire come up with a dangerous plan - which Dougal overhears, inciting him to a murderous rage. Jamie must do everything he can to save the ones he loves, even if it means saying goodbye to some-or all-of them. Written by Sai

God this episode was amazing!! Without a doubt the most emotional episode of this show - I cried multiple times throughout. However, the way it keeps jumping back and forth in time was just brilliant; every time I felt like I was about to fall to pieces watching what happened in the 18th century, it would jump forward to the 20th century and thus give the viewer a small (but much needed) break. Some of the best television I've seen in a long time!
