As we prepare for Outlander season 5 episode 8 on April 12, one thing feels clear — we are bracing for a heck of an emotional hour. It’s the aftermath of everything that we saw tonight, as the Frasers are in mourning … and Roger also finds himself separated from everything that he loves.

In the promo for what lies ahead, you see Brianna being offered the “generous” gift of land — something that she could really care less for given that she wants her husband back. That is the thing that matters the most to her, and because of that, this is what she’s going to pursue. There’s one crisis here, but there could be another that stands out as the episode progresses. It could start with a missing root, and it could lead to further questions and fears.
The primary thing that is on our mind is simply this: Our fear that Stephen Bonnet could be making his presence felt in the most terrible way possible. One of the things that we do know about this character is that he has a capacity to cause a lot of hurt, and he doesn’t seem to care who is on the receiving end of it.
In general, this is going to be a trying episode for several different characters on the series — we don’t know if it can make us as soul-crushed as we are tonight, but the series may very well try. They’re already trying with the enormous cliffhanger when it comes to Roger’s fate, which was left hanging in the balance tonight.
Oh, and shall we say we miss Murtagh already…
