We spent a lot of time with Brianna and Roger in Outlander Season 7, Episode 7. Here are the three Bree moments that stood out the most.
We got more time in 1980 with Bree and Roger in Outlander Season 7, Episode 7. We needed it with the big reveal at the end of the previous episode. Buck MacKenzie is in the 20th century, and now Bree and Roger need to figure out what to do with him.
I do have to question their need to treat him like a child. I get that they don’t trust him after the Battle of Alamance, but do they really think him stupid enough to give a lot away of who he is and what happened to him?
Anyway, Bree had some great moments with Buck, Rob, and Roger in Outlander Season 7, Episode 7. Here are the top three in the order that they happened.
Brianna’s best moments in Outlander Season 7, Episode 7
Listening to Buck’s story
As much as Brianna doesn’t trust Buck, she did want to hear his story. There was even a little sympathy in there as she heard about him leaving the colonies behind. I think there was a lot of empathy when Buck realizes that he’s left his family behind and they’re no longer around.
Brianna has come to terms with the loss of her own family. While Claire and Jamie are still alive in her heart, they’ve been dead for almost 200 years by the time Bree is talking to Buck in the 20th century. As she shares about her Scottish side with pride, she also corrects herself in speaking in the present tense to note that she acknowledges they’re gone.
Interacting with Rob at dinner
I love seeing Brianna talk about work. I think it’s because we’ve seen her as a mother and wife for so long, I love seeing her love for something else coming out. That happens at dinner as she talks to Rob about work.
We know that Rob is charming his way in. He’s a bit of a sociopath, really. He’s definitely a narcissist, and he’s working hard on charming Bree to make her like him. After all, he needs that to be able to get Jemmy alone. If it was anyone else, I’d love for Bree to be able to make a friend at work. This moment shows that she can if she could just find someone who doesn’t want to hurt her.
A steamy moment with Roger
Buck brings up to Roger that Rob has eyes for Bree. While Roger knows that Bree only has eyes for him, there is something possessive that comes up. They have some fun with it, though.
I love that Bree makes it very clear that she only has eyes for Roger. It doesn’t matter what Rob would like. Bree isn’t interested, but she’s also not going to apologize for a man’s attention toward her. She can’t control that, but she can control how she shows it’s all about Roger.
