Outlander’s social crew made it clear that tonight’s episode was going to include some violence. Now the production has offered support after that shocking ending to the 50th episode.

Outlander Season 4, Episode 8 delivered one of its most heartbreaking, shocking, and violent episodes since the first season. Before going into the episode tonight, the social crew made fans aware that there would be some violence and they certainly weren’t lying. After the episode, the production made sure there was support.

As a word of caution, there are spoilers for this week’s episode. If you knew you wouldn’t want to watch but would like to know the events, you can catch up with the recap. The violent part of the episode is at the very end of the recap, so you can avoid it if you wish.

More from Outlander Fandom

This was the episode many book fans had brought up in discussions a lot. Yes, it’s the one where Brianna is raped by Stephen Bonnet and not much was left to the imagination. Leaving her bloody and alone, we’re left with that sick feeling we had in the first season after Jamie was raped by Black Jack Randall.

To offer support for victims of domestic abuse, rape, and sexual violence, the production team shared the number for RAINN. This is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, helping survivors of all types of sexual violence and attacks.

Please do get in touch with RAINN if you found that episode distressing and it brought back memories. There is nothing weak about talking about things. In fact, there’s a strength in talking about the horrors that plague your memories and can help you through your past.
