After tonight’s episode effectively told the story of Roger and Brianna in the past, Outlander season 4 episode 8 is shaking things up once more. The title here is “Wilmington” and over the course of it, you’re going to have a chance to see Jamie and Claire back at the forefront of the story — alongside, of course, the latest for Roger and Bree. There’s a lot that is going to happen here, especially since we’re building towards a big reunion for some of these characters.

Before we do too much else, let’s go ahead and share via Starz the official Outlander season 4 episode 8 synopsis:
Roger’s diligent search for Brianna pays off when he finds her in Wilmington, but their romantic reunion comes to an abrupt halt when she discovers pertinent information that he intentionally kept from her. Meanwhile, Jamie and Claire attend the theater with Governor Tryon, at his request, and discover a plot against the Regulators that tests Jamie’s loyalty to Tryon.
Basically, it seems as though whatever joy comes out of the Roger / Brianna reunion will be short-lived — these two do still have many a thing to discuss and hopefully, the upcoming episode will allow them that opportunity. There’s still so much more to come with this story, and it really didn’t feel like tonight came to that much of a conclusion given that Roger still hasn’t made it to America and Brianna just boarded the Phillip Alonzo. Really, her journey at sea is only beginning at the moment. (For those who are book readers, you know that there is a lot to be worried about at the moment when it comes to Brianna. Someone protect her at all costs!)
As for what we’re seeing with Jamie and Claire, it feels like the Tryon / Murtagh storyline is going to be coming to a head in a rather-dramatic way. We know that Jamie is basically being pulled in two different directions. Without the Governor, he would not have any land to call his home; yet, at the same time Murtagh is his family. He doesn’t want to do anything that could hurt him, and he’s going to have to navigate these waters in a really tricky, complicated manner.
Overall, we do think that “Wilmington” is going to be one of the most all-encompassing episodes of the season in terms of everything coming together for these characters — even if it is rather difficult to watch along the way. These are people who, after all, are going through quite a bit!
