We’ve said this a few times over at this point, but Outlander season 4 should be a banner year for Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin. They are set for an epic journey as Roger and Brianna and this season will chronicle much of it. Their introduction has been slow, but over season 4 you will see more of their lives and eventually, an epic journey that will change almost everything for them.
What is especially notable here, though, is that at the start of the season, Brianna is going to be moving forward with her life. She knows that her parents are both in the past, but she’s not going to be altogether transfixed on it. Why is that? Well, she’s got a number of things going for her, including great friends and also a potential love with Roger. She also has the potential of an exciting career ahead of her.

So does she still think about the idea of meeting Jamie? Certainly, and that is something that Sophie Skelton herself notes in a new interview with BuzzFeed (which also features Rankin, Caitriona Balfe, and Sam Heughan), while discussing her character’s journey as a whole:
Obviously the idea of meeting her biological father would be something that’s wonderful for her, but at the same time, Frank was her dad, and it’s something you see this season. It’s something she really feels torn between and that she feels she’s betraying Frank if she gets close to this other side of herself. She’s started a new world in the ’60s for herself. She’s moved away from a history major and she’s gone to engineering. She has new friends and she has Roger, her whole life is in the ’60s. As bad as it sounds, there’s nothing really for her in the past. She has the knowledge that her mother is happy in the past now and that’s a nice little image for Bree.
Of course, all book readers know that eventually (spoiler alert), Brianna is going to find her way to the past. With that in mind, it is fair to say that there’s going to be a pretty good reason for her to do so. Many of you out there likely know what that is, and we have a hard time thinking that this is going to change all that much from the book.
