Outlander Season 4, Episode 3 delivered a strong episode for both time periods. Here are my five favorite lines from the episode.

There were some beautiful moments throughout Outlander Season 4, Episode 3. A strong episode in both time periods, we got to learn more about what Claire and Jamie will do next and where Brianna and Roger are in their relationship.

However, it doesn’t all come with happy words spoken. There are some bittersweet and heartbreaking moments. Here are my five favorite lines from “The False Bride.

No good comes grieving over what is already lost, but what I wouldna give to look upon yer face just once.

Jocasta has a beautiful line after giving Jamie the candlesticks from his mother. This may have been written purely for the show, but I’m glad that it was added in. It’s a moment that shows just how much Jocasta misses her sister and also how much she misses her sight.

While she knows that it doesn’t make sense to miss something she lost years ago, she can’t help but do it. She may be a MacKenzie, but this moment also shows her as a kindhearted woman.

I’m no the same lad ye kent in Scotland. I’m a man, free to call the place I choose home.

I adore that Young Ian gets the courage to stand up to Jamie in this moment. Once again, Jamie makes it clear that he wants Young Ian to head back to Scotland, but that’s not something the young boy — wait, man — wants. He’s grown considerably since being kidnapped by pirates the very first time.

He puts forward a good argument, too. This is one of those moments that you can see he’s thought about this. He’s planned it just in case it goes like this. Young Ian will fight for what he believes in.

They fight well and fight with honor. And they do what they must to guard their lands from whoever has a mind to take ’em.

John Qunicy Myers is a good man. He’s respectful of the Natives and that serves him well. However, this line stands out because it clearly foreshadows the things to come. He makes a point that the Cherokee will guard their lands and it’s their lands that the Frasers have found themselves on.

The first time I watched this episode, I overlooked the line. Since watching the trailer for the next Outlander Season 4 episode, the line stands out more.

It does make me think of my mother. I wonder if she ever made it back, found Jamie, if she’s happy.

There’s a beauty in this moment of the episode. Brianna can’t help but think of her mother. They discuss when North Carolina was founded by the Scots and that Brianna constantly wonders whether Claire found Jamie. What neither Brianna and Roger realize is that they’re on land that Claire and Jamie helped develop.

This is exactly what the writers wanted us to feel. I’d figured that out before it was ever mentioned, but this line stands out so much because of that.

Then this will be our home. And we’ll call it Fraser’s Ridge.

In the end, Claire and Jamie find the place they will call home. Despite Claire wanting to go to a town for safety, they decide to remain in the wilderness. It was clear that this would eventually happen since Claire had shown some doubt about her wishes, feeling like Jamie wouldn’t be happy.

But quite honestly, this was the line we were all waiting for in Outlander Season 4, Episode 3, right? We got the name of the home in the last line of the episode.
