4. Give Me Liberty (Season 6, Episode 5)

While this isn’t set at Christmas, there is a party involved. And we all know that parties can offer a similar atmosphere to the Christmas season in TV shows depending on how they’re set out.

This episode offers us a chance to see Claire give Jocasta weed to help out with the pain in her eyes. We also get to meet Flora MacDonald, the woman who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape back to Europe after the failed Battle of Culloden. There are some great seeds dropped in this episode for some Season 7 storylines, too.

3. A Practical Guide for Time-Travelers (Season 7, Episode 7)

Christmas is a time for family. Well, what better an episode of Outlander to watch than one of the most recent ones that involves family from different time periods? This is the one where Roger learns who the “nuckelavee” really is and what to do about him.

Buck MacKenzie has come through the stones. He saw Roger while in the present day and decided to follow him. He didn’t intend to get caught, but here they are, a family under one roof. This is a chance to see Buck in a different light compared to the first time when he made Roger look like a traitor so that he would be hanged.
