We didn’t get a lot of time with Roger and Bree in Outlander Season 7, Episode 8, but it was enough to see some standout moments.

While we spent most of Outlander Season 7, Episode 8 focused on the Second Battle of Saratoga, there was some time in the 20th century. It’s all about where Jemmy is now. Roger is sure that Rob has taken Jemmy through the stones, and at first, he doesn’t understand why.

Bree got to the bottom of that. Now it’s time for Roger to go back through the stones to find his son. There were some standout moments throughout his time on screen, and here they are in the order of what happened.

Roger’s best moments in Outlander Season 7, Episode 8

Telling Bree and Mandy to stay put

Roger makes it clear that he will go through the stones for Jemmy. He will figure out where Rob has taken him and bring his son back to the 20th century. He will only return once he has his son.

However, only he is planning on going through. There isn’t even a conversation about it. Roger knows how dangerous this is, and he makes it clear that Bree is to stay in the 20th century with Mandy. It’s best for only one of them to go through.

The thankful look toward Buck

Okay, so Roger isn’t the only one going through the stones. Buck makes it clear that he will head through, too. They believe that they are going to his time, so it makes sense for Buck to go with Roger. Plus, Buck makes it clear that he will do what he can for his own kin.

There’s this thankful look in Roger’s eyes. He would never have asked for this, but it’s clear that part of him hoped Buck would offer to go with him. Roger knows what life in the past is like, and it’s going to be much easier with someone who lived in that time period all his life, especially someone from the area.

Roger holding onto Buck through the stones

There’s a tearful goodbye at the stones between Roger and Bree, but it’s the way Roger holds onto Buck as they walk through the stones that stands out for me. Roger remembers how dangerous it is to travel. There’s no guarantee that they will stick together, but Roger wants to make sure that they will as much as possible.

I love that we’re reminded about the dangers of time travel. Without understanding how dangerous and painful it is, there would be a lot of questions about why they all don’t just keep jumping through time when they need to. This is exactly why.
