6. Claire doesn’t want her daughter to stay
Naturally, Claire wants Brianna and the others to go through the stones. We still don’t know if Jemmy can (unless you’ve read the books, of course!) but Claire doesn’t want to risk everyone’s lives.

She feels a sense of guilt for everyone being in the past in the first place. Despite missing Bree, Claire didn’t want her daughter to come through the stones, knowing how dangerous it is in the 18th century. Brianna never even showed any signs of wanting to go through the stones until it came to finding the information about the fire.
It’s not surprising that Claire wants Bree to head back through the stones. There’s a war coming and, right now, they’re on the wrong side of it.
5. Brianna isn’t certain about Claire’s actions
Brianna mentions to Claire about “playing God.” It’s clear that Claire is going to use her knowledge of the future to help change a few events in the past. This likely won’t be to prevent the Revolutionary War, but maybe to ensure a few people along the way aren’t killed if Claire can help it.
Is it like playing God? Or is it just doing some good with the knowledge she has? After all, Murtagh once pointed out that he wouldn’t want to be like Claire, having all that information of the things to come and not being able to do much about it.
If you’ve read “The Fiery Cross,” you’ll know that there are times Claire’s knowledge of the future can be a hindrance. She knows about the diseases that people are inflicted by and not have a way to cure them in the time she’s in—although she knows she could cure them or at least help them in the future.
We know from NYCC that we’re going to get to see more of Claire doing medical treatments. This is likely where the statement about playing God comes in.
