Jamie had to say goodbye to his family once again in Outlander Season 7, Episode 2. Here are his top moments throughout the episode.
Are you still crying from those many moments in Outlander Season 7, Episode 2? You’re not alone. This episode raced through some of the storylines, barely giving us time to breathe.
For Jamie, it was an episode of goodbyes. He didn’t just have to say goodbye to his daughter and grandchildren. He also said another goodbye to Lord John Grey. It’s clear that the two cannot remain friends during this time.
Here’s a look back at the best Jamie moments from the episode. Some of them may not be all that obvious.
3 best Jamie moments in Outlander Season 7, Episode 2
The moments are in order that they happened. After all, it’s so hard to compare Jamie’s big moments.
1. Showing Mandy her horse
Jamie is such a great father and grandfather. He’s so proud to get to be a part of Brianna’s life now, and he got to be there for the delivery of Mandy. It makes this moment so bittersweet knowing what would come.
Jamie shows Mandy her horse. It’s a foal that will grow big and strong like his granddaughter. He makes promises to teach her to ride, and there’s even a mention of the foal after Bree and Roger take their children through the stones. How I wish Jamie could have had this chance.
2. His moment with Brianna in the woods
When it’s clear that the family needs to travel, he wants a quiet word with Brianna. They head out into the woods, where Jamie catches a firefly. It’s beautiful, and that leads to a conversation about Disney.
Bree and Jamie talk about what Disney and Mickey Mouse (and I love that comes up when Jamie says goodbye to Jem) and what Bree sees Jamie doing if they were all in the future. I adore the fact that Jamie points out that people need to eat so he could be a farmer. Isn’t that what many of us picture Jamie as in the future?
3. Recognizing the gold
At the end of the episode, Wendigo Donner pays a visit. Donner’s goons bring the Bugs in, showing off the gold that Mrs. Bug was hiding. Jamie immediately recognizes it.
This takes us back to Outlander Season 6 when there’s a mention of Jocasta rambling about gold. It was clear that meant something to Jamie, so is it really a surprise that he recognizes the gold nugget now. He asks Arch in Gaelic where Arch got the gold from, but Arch won’t say anything. It’s clear this is going to come up again.
