6. The fisherfolk will have to deal with it
When Roger realizes that his calling is to become a minister, he talks to Jamie and then Brianna. We’re onto the conversation with Bree in this moment, because she worries that the fisherfolk will expect her to convert, and she doesn’t want to do that.
Roger decides they will either accept him having a Catholic wife or they can go to hell. He might want to be a little more diplomatic than that, but he’s clear that he would never expect Bree to convert.
5. What would Perry Mason do?
With news of Malva’s murder spreading, everyone needs to figure out who actually did it. Roger thinks about Perry Mason, wondering what he would do. He realizes that Perry would look at those who had motive, means, and opportunity.
I love that we get to see this detective side to him. He wants to get to the bottom of it all, and he does it through the intellectual path, which is very much like Roger.
4. Dealing with the funeral
Despite not being a minister yet—or even thinking that this will be his path—Roger leads the funeral in Outlander Season 6, Episode 2. This is certainly one interesting funeral that involves the dead waking. It’s a medical situation, and Mrs. Wilson is not actually coming back from the dead. It’s all temporary.
Roger handles it so well. He remains calm, and he makes it clear that Mrs. Wilson isn’t long for the world. He just gets on with the whole situation, even though it would have been shocking, even for him.
