Outlander Season 5, Episode 10 brought an end to a villainous storyline earlier than in the books. Here are the big questions we have now.

Outlander Season 5, Episode 10 certainly wrapped up a couple of storylines. Well, one storyline in a way but for two characters. Now it’s time to push forward, but there are certainly a lot of questions.

The episode is a big one to break down. While it seems like everything is over, actions some of them took will be brought up in later episodes. With just two episodes left of the season, it’s hard to guess what’s going to happen next.

Instead of all the little questions, I like to gather them into five big questions. I also write this from a show-first perspective. Even though I’ve read the books, I’m not going to give away spoilers. After all, a storyline from Book 6 has been used in Season 5 so anything can happen now! Here are my five big questions after Outlander Season 5, Episode 10.

5. Does it matter why Brianna shot Bonnet?

Roger asked whether it was mercy or to make sure Bonnet was dead. There are mixed opinions from the fans about whether roger should have asked this, but I understand why he did. Not only was it the scholar in Roger coming out, but it was for the audience’s sake; something that needs to be done now and then on a TV show.

However, my question is whether we really need to know that? Bree didn’t answer it. She may not even know herself.

But in the end, this is all about Bree. It doesn’t matter whether she wanted to show the man mercy or just wanted to make sure he was out of her life. It’s likely a mixture of the two, a way to bring real closure and not lose her humanity, but it honestly doesn’t matter to us. And it shouldn’t matter to Roger, which is probably why he didn’t press for an answer.
