Bree went back to work in Outlander Season 7, Episode 4. Here are her top moments from the whole episode, especially that interview!
Brianna and Roger are trying to make the most of their lives in the 20th century. We jump forward two years from the previous episode to find out that Bree and Roger have been living in a caravan with their children on the Lallybroch land while the home is refurbished.
However, money is getting tight. That means one of them needs to work, and it’s up to Brianna to step up. As we see her as more than a mother and wife, it’s time to get excited for her character growth.
The best moments are in order of them happening again.
3 top Bree moments in Outlander Season 7, Episode 4
Wanting to keep the mark
When the contractor wants to cover up a mark on the wall, Bree refuses to let it happen. It was a mark from the past. When the British came through after Culloden, they left that mark on the wall. This is meaningful to Bree.
I love that while she wants to put her own touch on the house, she also wants to keep it as authentic as possible. She is still heavily connected to the past.
Getting the job
Bree heads to the interview determined to get the job. She isn’t going to be a secretary but a plant inspector.
I’ve been disappointed with the way the show has handled Bree so far. She doesn’t have the same fire as her character in the book. The show has brought us the mother and wife in her, but not the independent young woman that she is. We get to see that in the interview, and it’s everything I hoped for.
Talking to Roger
In Outlander Season 4, Roger being upset that Bree was bringing home the bacon would have led to a huge argument. As I mentioned in the posts about the Outlander Season 7 premiere, the MacKenzies have come a long way and have learned how to communicate. That’s what we see again in this episode.
Bree understands how Roger feels and doesn’t belittle him. She isn’t annoyed at his way of thinking as she learns why he feels that way. His feelings are valid, and she supports that. She also makes it clear that she is going to bring home the bacon. That isn’t changing.
