Through the entirety of “Outlander” Saturday night, there was a key and obvious omission: Jamie Fraser. While we knew that he was still out there alive, he was definitely not in an ideal position due to his imprisonment.
We are definitely going to be seeing much more of Sam Heughan as the character during next week’s new episode entitled “Wentworth Prison,” but we cannot exactly sit here right now and tell you with optimism that we envision some happy times are ahead for the character. Given that Black Jack Randall is going to be spending some time with him again, we anticipate pain … and some of the worst variety of it that he has seen so far. Don’t anticipate any happy endings during this episode, and be pleasantly surprised if one comes courtesy of Claire and her small but mighty Highlander army.
If you have not seen the synopsis for this episode below yet (short as it may be), take a look:
“At Wentworth Prison, Jamie’s execution day approaches, while Claire and the Highlanders contemplate a rescue plan. Later, Jamie receives an unsettling visit from Black Jack.”
Ultimately, we feel like this is going to be a dark, action-packed episode, and one that will in many ways be a counterpoint to “The Search,” which we found at times to be one of the lightest and even the funniest episodes that we’ve seen all season. Given that this episode is carrying into the finale, you have to imagine that surprises will lie around every corner (and the same could be said for possible cliffhangers).
