Is Outlander Finally Going To Burn Fraser’s Ridge In Season 5 Finale?

Spoilers forward for the penultimate episode of Outlander Season 5 on Starz, known as “Journeycake.”

Just one episode of Outlander Season 5 is left earlier than followers are despatched into one more Droughtlander, and the await Season 6 may very well be particularly lengthy. Based mostly on the occasions of “Journeycake,” all indicators level towards Season 5 ending with a bang. Or even perhaps a blaze. The entire episode after which the Claire cliffhanger depart me questioning: is Outlander lastly going to burn Fraser’s Ridge within the finale?

Outlander revealed {that a} fireplace at Fraser’s Ridge goes to occur — or at the least, was going to occur — and declare the lives of each Jamie and Claire, based on an obituary from the 18th century. The obit was sufficient to ship Brianna (and Roger after her) to the previous to warn the Frasers, and he or she did get to them earlier than the hearth was set to begin… or so it appeared.

The date on the obituary was smudged, so all that was assured was the hearth was initially imagined to burn Fraser’s Rdige sooner or later within the 1770s. As Younger Ian famous in “Journeycake,” Claire and Co. have been capable of alter the long run in small methods, which may imply that the burning of the Ridge — which is a crucial a part of historical past insofar because it despatched Bree again in time — has to occur, however the deaths do not.

However I am getting forward of myself. Why am I nervous about Fraser’s Ridge presumably burning after “Journeycake, heading into the top of Season 5 and launch of Season 6? Effectively, I used to be on edge from nearly the very starting of the episode, when a caption revealed that the episode is happening in autumn of 1772.

Outlander would not replace on the time of the yr and even yr itself in each episode, so it felt to me like Outlander was attempting to name consideration to the truth that the Frasers are within the 1770s, and that may very well be a foul factor. Shortly after the yr replace, “Journeycake” shifted to Jamie, Claire, Brianna, and Roger discovering the smoking remnants of a home that had been burned, with the occupants seemingly killed with arrows earlier than the home was torched. One lady did survive, however she was past the purpose of speech and any hope of restoration.

The arrows steered that Native Individuals may very well be accountable, however Jamie famous that it appeared unlikely in any other case. The burning was revisited when the Brown brothers together with a band of males rode to Fraser’s Ridge to ask Jamie to collect some males for his or her “committee of security” to roughly police the world the place the governors weren’t serving to.

Notably, Lionel Brown was sporting a burn damage, and he wasn’t too eager on Claire looking, and the committee wasn’t too eager on Jamie finally declaring that he would not be a part of. On the finish of the episode, the Browns and Co. seemingly set the whiskey nonetheless on fireplace to attract the boys away from Fraser’s Ridge, then invaded the home, assaulted Marsali, and kidnapped Claire. These males aren’t messing round, and all indicators level towards them being keen to burn buildings. May Fraser’s Ridge be subsequent?

“Journeycake” did draw consideration to how properly Fraser’s Ridge had been constructed by 1772. The upstairs of the large home was accomplished, and the visitor room was out there for Lord John Gray when he turned up for a go to. The entire home has change into spacious, and Claire and Jamie had a second within the small home after Roger and Bree left to return to the long run the place they mirrored on how far they’ve come. Truthfully, even when there hadn’t been an obit declaring their deaths through fireplace, I’d have been paranoid about how properly the Frasers are doing!

With the finale fast-approaching and the present taking some critical liberties with the supply materials, I am not going to rule out Fraser’s Ridge burning (however Jamie and Claire and hopefully Fergus and Marsali’s department of the household alive) both on the finish of Season 5 or early in Season 6. If ever there was a time to be paranoid, that is it.

Learn how Outlander ends Season 5 on Sunday, Might 10 at eight p.m. ET on Starz. The episode has so much to take care of, together with Claire’s kidnapping, the “committee of security,” Roger and Bree’s journey by the stones that seemingly did not take them the place meant, Marsali’s damage, and perhaps even what occurred to Younger Ian. Whereas I for one doubt that we’ll get almost all these solutions within the last episode of the season, it needs to be one which viewers should not miss.
