For the first time, Outlander became a family drama in Season 5. It all began with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) whirlwind courtship, but now the focus has widened to include the rest of the Balfe and Heughan families.
For Season 5, Season 5 of Outlander is based on the fifth book in Diana Gabaldon’s epic series, The Fiery Cross, which takes place in America just prior to the Revolutionary War.
Outlander Season 5 Plot
Fraser’s Ridge has been given to him by the British Crown, but he knows from Claire, Brianna, and Brianna’s husband Roger (Richard Rankin) that war eventually breaks out and the American colonists win.
Claire, a doctor who traveled back in time from the 1960s, is frustrated by the lack of modern medicine and her inability to treat people. So she goes back in time and creates penicillin on her own.
As a medical assistant, Marsali (Lauren Lyle) is hired by her new employer. Dr. Rawling’s modern ideas about women’s right to choose what they do with their bodies enrage the men of Brownsville, despite Claire’s best efforts.
While being led by Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy), a group kidnap and abuse Claire. Marsali kills Lionel with a lethal injection while Jamie, Roger, and Ian (John Bell) kill all the men and save her.
When Claire’s brother Lionel commits an act of vengeance against her, she is left with lasting scars. For his part, Governor Tryon (Tim Downie) reminds Jamie that he must serve the British as part of his agreement to establish his settlement at Fraser’s Ridge.
He’s been given orders to form a militia and assassinate his godfather Murtagh, the leader of the Regulators, a real-life group of North Carolina farmers opposed to British taxation (Duncan Lacroix). This leads to the Battle of Alamance, where Murtagh saves Jamie but is later assassinated by one of Jamie’s men.
The loss of a lifelong friend causes Jamie to question his steadfastness in serving the Crown. A fire at Fraser’s Ridge prompted Brianna’s first trip through the stones, and in Season 5, she and Roger debate whether or not to stay in the past.
While Claire and Jamie say goodbye to Claire’s parents with tears in their eyes, they realize they can travel back in time using their own gemstones. It appears that their true home is in the past with their family when they return to Fraser’s Ridge after traveling through stones.
Smuggler With one of his most despicable crimes being sexually assaulting Brianna in Season 4, Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers) is one of Outlander’s most hated villains. After a failed kidnapping attempt on Brianna in Season 5, he finally meets his end.
In exchange for saving her life, Roger and the Frasers offer Brianna the choice of killing Bonnet or putting him on trial.
When the water is about to submerge him, she shoots him in the head at the dock where he is tied to a post. In Season 5, he returns to Fraser’s Ridge dressed as a Native American, clearly depressed. A suicide attempt suggests that something bad happened to the wife he had while he was living with the tribe.
