'Outlander' season 4 episode 11: Murtagh the 'Original Godfather' Fitzgibbons vs. Stephen the 'B*stard Bonnet', who will win?
The trailer of the upcoming episode of 'Outlander', 'If Not For Hope,' shows Murtagh Fitzgibbons coming face to face with Stephen Bonnet
Nothing is fair in love and war, and 'Outlander' sets the example. A preview of the upcoming episode titled 'If Not For Hope,' has a lot of things to look forward to from Roger MacKenzie's (Richard Rankin) decision to time-travel through the stones to Brianna Randall Fraser's (Sophie Skelton) fate in Aunt Jocasta's (Maria Doyle Kennedy) county.
However, fans are particularly interested to know the fate of season 4's ultimate villain, Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers). Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) has sworn to avenge Brianna's assaulter for violating her as well as for the sake of his own redemption, since he brutally beat Roger, almost to death, mistaking him for Brianna's rapist.
As Jamie, his wife Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) and Young Ian (John Bell) set out on a long journey to find Roger and get him back from the Mohawks of New York, pregnant Brianna was sent off to Aunt Jocasta's Riverrun. Jamie's trusted and beloved godfather, Murtagh Fitzgibbons (Duncan Lacroix) was thrust with the responsibility of dropping Brianna off at Riverrun, but that was not the only duty assigned to him. Jamie pulled Murtagh aside to specifically instruct the latter to get Stephen Bonnet for him - alive.
After settling Brianna well, the promo trailer shows Murtagh in Wilmington, steadily on the hunt to nab the pirate. He is seen in conversation with Fergus (César Domboy) as he requests help to find Bonnet. Looks like they succeed as the 30-second trailer concludes with Murtagh greeting Bonnet "hello" before taking out his musket and pointing it at him.
Now it is obvious Murtagh and Bonnet will come face to face, but the major question is, who will win in the face-off? Murtagh is certainly a man of strength and honor, who not only survived the Battle of Culloden, but also lived through the torture of Ardsmuir prison. Murtagh was introduced to the viewers as one of the suitors of Ellen MacKenzie, Jamie's mother.
Oh I’m so worried for #Murtagh #duncainlacroix going up against that evil Bonnet, loving S4! Can’t believe it’s nearly over 😢 #outlander I will just have to binge watch 1-4 to get my #SamHeughan fix 😍😊— Lynsey Nardini (@lynseynardini19) January 11, 2019
Murtagh going for Bonnet! Wonder who's holding the gun?— Joann Quinlivan (@JoannQuinlivan) January 10, 2019
In order to win her hand in marriage, he single-handedly killed a boar with a dagger. However, Ellen chose to marry Brian Fraser, Jamie's father, but Murtagh loved Ellen, and took an oath to protect Jamie throughout. As a man of honor, there is no question he always triumphs. However, things are not in his favor at the moment, since he is leading a political revolution against the British and he is a "wanted" man by the government.
As for the villain Bonnet, he has been extremely frightening this season. In the very first episode, he raided the Frasers' and murdered their friend. When Roger landed on Bonnet's boat, when he entered the 17th century, Bonnet was quick to reveal he is a person to be feared. Without any hesitation, he murdered a little girl by throwing her off his ship in the middle of the ocean. Her mother immediately followed suit trying to save her, only to drown and die as well.
But nothing was more blood curdling than Brianna's horrific rape by Bonnet. The mere sight of him triggers chills. But in the faceoff, Murtagh will have an upper hand. Twitterati believe so and I'd like to believe so, too. One user even called him the "Original Godfather.' While another said: "You're going to get your a*se kicked b*stard Bonnet!"

He will definitely capture Bonnet, and the odds ought to be in his favor.
