Now that we know Outlander Season 8 is going to be the last, there are a lot of questions about how it will end. Will it end with Book 8, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood?
Our eyes are currently on Outlander Season 8. Okay, they’re on Season 7 since we’re still waiting for that, but there are a lot of questions about the ending. We know Season 8 is going to be the last, and we also know there are only 10 episodes to the season.
What does that mean for the ending? How could we see Claire and Jamie’s story come to an end? Could the show end with the eighth book’s ending?
How will Outlander Season 8 end?
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood does have a pretty good ending. A long time ago, there were a few people who suggested that the eighth book would work as a series finale for a few reasons.
The book ends with Bree and Roger getting back to the past with Jem and Mandy. At least, we’re left believing that. Claire sees figures coming over the hill with a “Hello, the House” statement. This was something Bree and Roger would know, and knowing they were going back to the past made them being the ones to come over the hill make sense.
They had been running from a threat in the 1980s. Getting to the past made sense since this threat couldn’t travel through the stones. Of course, there was always a chance someone would come after them, but the story for the show could be written that being in the past was safer than the future.
We also saw Claire and Jamie’s story end in a good place. William’s story was still a little in the air,b but that could be worked out quickly in the show. Jenny’s and Ian’s stories were in a positive place, making them for good endings for them. While there were some questions, the show could work out those kinks.
The only question is about the ghost in the pilot episode, but that could be answered relatively quickly.
I’m not sure if there will be enough time to tell the full story from Books 9 and the future 10. Plus, does the show really want to pull another Game of Thrones? Maybe it would be best to make the Written in My Own Heart’s Blood ending work for the series.
