If you were wondering if Governor Tryon would return to Outlander Season 5, your questions have been answered. Tim Downie makes it clear he’s on set.

There are many questions about Outlander Season 5. Some of those questions will involve certain characters and whether they will return. Well, if you’re wondering about Tim Downie’s Governor Tryon, your questions have been answered.

Unsurprisingly, Governor Tryon is back and will likely cause trouble for the Frasers. Downie shared a short video on his Twitter to give us a look at ‘filming’. Really, he’s stood at the door of his trailer showing us the grey clouds overhead. He says it’s a ‘lovely day’ for filming of the series, but it tells us one thing: the Scottish summer rain continues to fall.

The production mostly films in Glasgow and on the west coast. Fortunately, the west hasn’t been hit as badly as the east coast, so I still doubt that the weather will cause problems for production timing. This weather is something that the production will have planned for.

However, that’s not what I’m here to discuss. It’s all about Tim Downie on Outlander Season 5. This clip tells us that Tryon is back. And this certainly shouldn’t be a surprise, even if you haven’t read the books. It’s just confirmation that the storyline is following the trajectory we would think.

At the end of the fourth season, Jamie was delivered an order to create a militia. The first task was to capture and kill Murtagh. We know that puts Jamie in an extremely difficult position, but Tryon won’t care that Murtagh is Jamie’s godfather. All Tryon sees is an enemy of the Crown.

Filming right now will be around the halfway mark of the season. The episodes do tend to film out of order but not massively so, which means we’re likely hitting around Episodes 5-7 at the moment. This could be when we start to see the militia storyline reach a head, because I doubt that it will take up the whole season.

Bringing in Tryon at the halfway mark could indicate that Jamie is failing at his task. Tryon won’t be happy with that and there will likely be threats of losing his land.

I am just theorizing here. There is a book storyline to follow, but Diana Gabaldon also said there was some “reasonable invention,” and Tryon could be part of that “reasonable invention.”

Either way, it’s just good to know that Downie is back on set. We get to know Tryon is back, and that likely means trouble for the Frasers.
