Roger hears Buck’s story and has to save his son in one episode. Here are his top moments from Outlander Season 7, Episode 7.
Roger probably thought he would never have to see Buck MacKenzie again. And then this man turns up in the 20th century. We get to hear the story in the latest episode, but it’s not all about that.
Rob Cameron also shows up unannounced, and it’s clear that this means trouble. Roger wants to see the good in people, but he needs to learn that people will always do what they want for themselves. That includes kidnapping a child.
It’s time to take a look back at Outlander Season 7, Episode 7. We look at Roger’s best moments in the order that they happened.
Roger’s best moments in Outlander Season 7, Episode 7
Listening to Buck’s story
Roger could have just kicked Buck out and never seen him again. That’s not what he chooses to do. Instead, he listens to Buck’s story and even goes as far as to forgive the man. You see, Roger isn’t going to put a 20th-century mindset on an 18th-century person.
We get this from the very start of the episode. Roger was going to show Buck the family tree but shared that he couldn’t find it. Well, he could find it. Buck’s death is recorded as 1778 and Roger didn’t want to share that, especially once he found out Buck time traveled from 1778.
A moment with Brianna
I loved how Roger listened to Buck about Rob’s eye. He wasn’t jealous. Not in the normal way. Sure, there was something that stirred in him to want his wife, but he didn’t tell Bree to dress differently or treat Rob differently. He knows that it’s not on Bree to change Rob’s advances. It’s on Rob.
When they are together, that moment isn’t all about Roger getting through that small bit that stirs in him knowing another man is interested in his wife. He wants to make sure Bree is happy in the moment, too.
Going after Jemmy
As soon as Roger finds out that Jemmy has been taken, he wastes no time in speeding toward the stones. He knows that has to be where Rob has taken Jemmy, especially with things that Mandy said. He trusts his children and their connection to each other.
Buck remains calm and asks about other time travelers. That’s when Roger is able to put it all together and he fears the worst. Did Rob read about blood sacrifices? Is that why Rob has taken Jemmy to the stones? When he gets there, he realizes that’s not the case. Now he needs to do everything he can to get his son back.
