Starz has released the official synopsis for the season 2 finale episode of Outlander, which hints at the introduction of Claire and Jamie's daughter Brianna in a flash forward to 1968. The 90-minute episode is titled, Dragonfly In Amber, which will air on 9 July at 9pm ET/PT on Starz network.
Here is the official synopsis for episode 13 [via The Warp]:
Flashing forward to 1968, Claire travels to Scotland with her twenty-year-old daughter, Brianna, and meets Roger Wakefield. Claire visits Lallybroch and Culloden Moor to make peace with the past, while Brianna and Roger bond over researching Randall family history. Claire finally reveals the truth to Brianna about her time travel through the stones, her life in 1700's Scotland, and Brianna's true parentage. The story is intercut with another one back in the 18th century, which happens on the day of the Battle of Culloden. When Jamie's last ditch attempts to deter The Prince fail, he and Claire come up with a dangerous plan – which Dougal overhears, inciting him to a murderous rage. Jamie must do everything he can to save the ones he loves, even if it means saying goodbye to some—or all—of them.
Warning: Potential spoilers ahead
Sophie Skelton will play the role of Brianna in the time-travel episode. Fans will find themselves in the midst of a 18th-century battlefield, where Claire will head back to Scotland 200 years later along with daughter Brianna, to make peace with her past.
Brianna will meet Roger in Scotland, and they will bond as she marries him eventually in Diana Gabaldon's novel, the book on which the Outlander show is based.
The episode will also show how Claire ended up with Frank Randall in the 1940s, as teased in the premiere episode.
Previously, Sam Heughan – who plays Jamie – teased "climax" and "surprises" in the season 2 finale. He told IGN, "Ultimately the show has always been about relationships. Not only is that the climax of history, but it's also the climax of the relationships that are happening at the time. It's all doomed, and we can't stop history from happening."
"[Season 2] certainly has a climax. [Showrunner Ron Moore] has also got some surprises," Heughan added.
