Roger is on a journey to become a minister in the Outlander Season 7 premiere. He had some excellent moments throughout the episode.
At the end of Outlander Season 6, we saw Bree and Roger on a journey for Roger to become officially ordained. That’s where we find them in the Season 7 premiere. Bree is left with the other wives, while Roger goes out on his journey to minister to the people.
He had some big moments in the episode, including meeting a fellow time traveler. It’s time to break down the moments. I’ll share my favorite three from his short period of time on screen.
3 best Roger moments from the Outlander Season 7 premiere
These events are in order that they happened in the episode. It’s hard to rank them.
‘Float like a butterfly…’
When asked to minister, Roger found himself a little caught off guard. He ended up quoting Muhammad Ali, who people of the time wouldn’t know. Well, it turns out that someone there did know the quote.
Wendigo Donner was one of the prisoners. He said “Ali,” immediately getting Roger’s attention. That led to Roger discussing things with Wendigo, getting to hear his side of the story of what happened to Claire.
Admitting the incident on the ship
Bree was sure that if Roger was one of the people in that room when she was raped, he would have stood up to protect her. If he was one of the men in Lionel Brown’s group, he would have protected Claire. However, Roger pointed out that he has stood by and allowed things to happen before.
When Roger was on Bonnet’s ship, he watched as Bonnet pushed a child out of the ship window and that child’s mother went after her. The child had smallpox and Bonnet couldn’t risk the pox spreading across the ship. But that’s not the reasoning Roger gave. He admitted to being frozen in fear.
It’s already all of us saying what we would do in a situation, but that’s not always how it works. Until you’ve been in a similar situation, you can’t say.
Choosing not to risk anything for Wendigo
Bree made it very clear that she wasn’t happy about Roger helping Wendigo escape. This could ruin everything for a man who didn’t actually help Claire.
In the end, Roger decides that he won’t physically help the man. He will say a prayer for him, though. That’s something Bree can accept.
Something that I do love is that despite the argument, they both listen to each other’s side. They work through the harder moments. That’s what a good marriage is all about.
