Jamie and Young Ian went in search for Claire in the Outlander Season 7 premiere. Here are his top moments from the episode.
We picked up Outlander Season 7 straight off the back of the Season 6 finale. Young Ian caught us up with where the Cherokee and John Quincy Myers are, as Jamie imagined Claire’s death at the gallows. He knew deep down that Claire wasn’t dead.
And so, the two went off in search for Jamie’s wife. He was ready to get her back to him, but it wasn’t going to be an easy journey. There were some excellent Jamie moments throughout the episode, and here are my favorite three.
3 best Jamie moments from the Outlander Season 7 premiere
These moments are in order of them happening. It’s just too hard to rank them.
Knowing Claire wasn’t dead
We opened the episode with Claire being hanged as a murderess. It turned out that this was something Jamie was envisioning. It wasn’t a dream, but a live vision of what could happen. He refused to believe that Claire had died, though. He would feel that.
We opened with that voiceover of him sharing why he knows Claire is still alive. He knows he is running out of time, but for right now, Claire is there.
We do end up seeing Claire and Jamie reunite. I won’t include that as it gets a special place on another list.
The eulogy for Tom Christie
Tom figured out a way to save Claire. One thing that he would regret is not having someone say words at his funeral. He knows that by taking the blame for Malva’s death, he will be executed and not given a proper burial.
So, he asks Jamie to say some words to him now. Jamie offers that peace to this man who is about to get Claire free. He knows deep down that Tom didn’t kill Malva, but Tom loves Claire and will do anything to keep her safe knowing that she didn’t do it either.
The words have Jamie’s natural humor, but they are also heartfelt. There isn’t a lie in them. While Tom is a stubborn and difficult man, he has had a hard life and hearing his story puts a few things in his personality in place. Even Jamie sees that.
Going up against Richard Brown
At the very end of the episode, Jamie leaves Claire in their room to pay Richard Brown a visit. Of course, Richard thinks that his own family will protect him, but Jamie has been a step or two ahead for some time now. Jamie has friends in the right places.
We got to see that darker side to Jamie again. It’s that side we saw in the Outlander Season 5 finale. If you hurt the people he loves, he will come after you.
Will he actually kill Richard Brown? We’ll need to wait for Episode 2 to find out. Don’t rule it out. Jamie is a violent man, and he’s never claimed otherwise.
