4. How long will it take to find Claire?
Okay, so this question comes more from the promo for the next episode. We get a glimpse of Young Ian with the war paint, which suggests that Claire is going to be held by her captives for some time. However, it’s possible that the attack at the surgery took place weeks after Brianna and Roger originally left. This would allow Young Ian (and possibly others) time to get back to the Ridge.
Hopefully, it doesn’t take weeks to find Claire. After all, Jamie should know who took her. Marsali would be able to share everything she saw, which included the man in the red coat. It would be hard to put all the pieces together and realize Lionel Brown has ordered the kidnapping of Claire.
3. How many will join Jamie to find Claire?
Jamie lit the Fiery Cross. He made it clear in the Outlander Season 5 premiere that this meant war. He would only light it in a time of war. And that war he will fight is for his love.
So, how many will hold true to their oaths? Who will show up to help find Claire? Considering the oaths that were made, there will likely be a fair few who turn up. After all, they promised to follow Jamie, who is for all intents and purposes right now their laird. Most are Highlanders and will take their oaths seriously.
