'Outlander' season 4 episode 7 trailer shows Brianna 'Down the Rabbit Hole' in 18th century Scotland

We see Brianna in all her prowess preparing to buy a ticket, "I'd like to buy passage on the Philip Alonzo," she tells a 18th-century clerk as he sits on his table with a book open

Brianna Randall Fraser, following in her mother's footsteps, had time-traveled from the stones of 20th century Craigh na Dun to the 18th century the last time we checked in 'Outlander' season 4 episode 5. Episode 6, titled 'Blood of my Blood' saw a different reunion with Jamie Fraser bonding with his biological son Lord William Ransom Grey, and while the father-son meeting was epic in its own taste, fans were looking forward to the father-daughter meeting for the very first time.

The trailer for episode 7 dropped Monday and the episode titled 'Down the Rabbit Hole,' is all about Brianna, exploring the old century, looking just right with her corsets and navigating her way from Scotland to the New World (Colonial America) to locate her mother and father.

Rewind to episode 5 titled 'Savages,' Brianna had embarked on a journey to find her parents after discovering that her parents will die on a fire set at Fraser's Ridge. The date of the obituary is smudged but since it's in 1770s something, Brianna, who was in 1968, following the parallel calendar knows that there is still 2 years or more left and she wastes no time to time travel in order to prevent the fire mentioned in the obituary. 

With the central plot of episode 7 being Brianna, we see her ex-boyfriend Roger MacKenzie alongside the main storyline. As Alice sets out to explore Wonderland, oh sorry, let me rephrase that. As Brianna sets out to explore the 18th-century world, the trailer ominously begins with Roger telling Brianna: "Time is not a reality, it is a concept or a measure."

Brianna responds by saying "There is going to be a fire. I can prevent their deaths if I go to them now," in the backdrop are snow-capped mountains. We see Brianna in all her prowess preparing to buy a ticket, "I'd like to buy passage on the Philip Alonzo," she tells a 18th-century clerk as he sits on his table with a book opened in front of him.

The 30-second trailer then transfers to the season's villain Stephen Bonnet, who in episode 1 robbed Jamie and Claire Fraser off their gems and wedding ring and also managed to kill the couple's friend Lesley. He chillingly says "a wise man leaves things beyond his power to the gods," and while the ship sails, the pirate announces; "but on this ship, everything is in my power." His wicked smirk is proof in itself that something terrible is going to happen.

Meanwhile, Roger seems to have followed Brianna to the 18th century as the trailer concludes with him asking: "Do you hear that?" The official synopsis reads; "Brianna follows in her mother's footsteps and travels through the stones back in time to 18th century Scotland, where she struggles to make her way to the Colonies to find her parents."

'Outlander' Season 4 Episode 7 airs December 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
