Mercy Woodcock is definitely going to be in the new season of Outlander. Which part of the season, though? Will she be in Outlander Season 7A?
STARZ made a lot of noise about some actors coming into the series. Some of them were familiar faces that led to us questioning how they could be back. Then there were others that were new faces. One of the new faces was Gloria Obianyo.
Obianyo will play Mercy Woodcock, who is in the seventh book of the series. Does this mean she’ll show up in the first half of Outlander Season 7, or will we need to wait for the episodes in 2024?
Will Mercy Woodcock be in Outlander Season 7A?
It’s not too clear as to whether Mercy will be in the first half of the season or not. We’ll look at some very minor spoilers from the books to see when Mercy comes into the story, but other than that, we’re working with the promotional content only.
Obianyo didn’t appear in the trailer for the season. She is also not a character focused on in other promotional material. This could suggest that she won’t show up right away. This is where we need to look at the minor spoilers.
Mercy shows up after the Siege of Fort Ticonderoga. We know this siege is going to happen in the seventh season. It’s in the trailer for Outlander Season 7A. If we see a lot of the aftermath, then we could see Mercy appear in the story. I do suspect we may go up to the Battle of Saratoga in the first eight episodes, so that should mean Mercy is in the story.
However, instead of Mercy, we may meet her husband first and only her husband in Outlander Season 7A. Due to the storyline of Mercy being included in the story, we may need to wait for the second half of the season.
