Season 7 episode 4, "A Most Uncomfortable Woman"

There wasn't a lot of development for Jamie and Claire in this episode, but I do like it because we got to focus on meeting William and get into his character more. But before we talk about that, we of course need to bring up Tom Christie and how he just kisses Claire. It was hilarious. It seems like that's the last of the Christies, and I wish Tom well away from them, thank you very much. Something important we learned is that it was Tom who put the obituary in the paper, thinking the couple died in the house fire.

Alright, now on to William. I'm really glad episode 4 was dedicated to showing us what his responsibilities are, what kind of traits Jamie's son has, and it was bittersweet seeing him and Young Ian together. He was in the presence of family and didn't even know it. There's a special air that surrounds this episode with the connection between the cousins. Plus, of course a shout out to Brianna for getting that plant inspector position in the best way possible!

Season 7 episode 1, "A Life Well Lost"

The premiere of Outlander Season 7 was done really well! It continued where we left off in Outlander Season 6, and of course we were all on pins and needles waiting to see what would happen with Claire and her potential execution. Protective Jamie is the best Jamie, and we saw that time and again in this episode. Plus we get the reveal of Tom Christie's true feelings for Claire, and his tragic backstory. Though I still can't really 100% like the guy if I'm being honest. At the end of the day, Claire is saved and our beloved couple is reunited. And it felt so good! Finally, it was the moment we were all waiting for. Jamie kills Richard Brown, and it's good riddance. This episode had everything you'd want, and that's why it's one of my favorites from the seventh season.

Season 7 episode 2, "The Happiest Place on Earth"

I previously called this episode the episode of goodbyes, and it truly is. There were so many great emotional beats in "The Happiest Place on Earth." The biggest one of course is the MacKenzies having to say goodbye to the Frasers due to baby Mandy's heart condition. The moment between Bree and Jamie still makes me emotional and is one of my favorites from the whole series. And when Jamie offers Claire a way to go back with them? My heart.

The amount of familial moments in the second episode is why it ranks as one of the best on our list! Because there was even a moment of Bree getting to meet her brother William. A heartbreaking scene was Jamie and Lord John having to say goodbye. The waterworks. We also got the grim and sad truth about Malva and closed that chapter from the Christie storyline. And finally, it ends on a cliffhanger with Wendigo Donner showing up and leading to the unfortuante fire of the Big House. I'm telling you guys. Episode 2, brought all the emotions and I was so here for it.
