Outlander Season 5, Episode 5 saw Jamie make a dangerous decision that could come back in the future. Here are my five biggest questions after the episode.

There was a lot going on in Outlander Season 5, Episode 5. Claire had flashbacks of a patient in the 1960s, while Jamie had to make a decision that wasn’t easy but necessary. The episode certainly left us with a lot of questions.

Like with previous question articles, I’m avoiding spoilers from the book. If you want to read “The Fiery Cross” or you have read it, please try not to spoil things for those who haven’t. Plus, we have no idea what to expect in the show as there are storylines that aren’t the same.

One of those storylines involved Hamilton Knox. He isn’t a character from “The Fiery Cross,” so we have a lot of questions about the ending to that storyline during this episode. Here are my five big questions after the “Perpetual Adoration.”

5. Does Brianna really want to go back to the future?

At the end of the episode, Roger came back to Brianna with the promise of standing by her no matter what. This was when he found out that Bonnet is alive, which made him bring up the gem again. They can use it to travel as soon as they know if Jemmy can travel. After all, Bree said that it was their ticket home.

Going back to the 1970s has been on Roger’s mind for a while, but Brianna has always wanted to stay. Does suggesting the gem was still their ticket home suggest that she was thinking about heading back through the stones? Is she having second thoughts now that Bonnet is around and it keeps playing on her mind?

She didn’t look like she was ready to go back to her own time when Roger hugged her. There’s another argument brewing.
