'Outlander': Trailer, synopsis for season 4 episode 8 reveals Roger meets Brianna in 18th CE Wilmington
The synopsis confirms Roger and Brianna will meet but not all will go well with the 20th century couple stuck in the 18th century
What happens after the best episode of the season airs? You expect an even better episode next. And by the look of promo trailer for 'Outlander' season 4 episode 8, it's a high possibility. Episode 7 'Down the Rabbit Hole' was hands down the best so far with Brianna Randall Fraser and Roger MacKenzie both time-traveling through the stones from the 20th century to the 18th century.
While Brianna landed in the house of her mother's mortal enemy, Laoghaire, Roger landed in the ship of season 4's ultimate villain, Stephen Bonnet. Brianna is oblivious to the fact that her ex-boyfriend followed her through the stones of Craigh na Dun and she's on a determined journey to meet her parents' and prevent the deathly fire bound to occur in Fraser's Ridge.
Now at the climax of the season, the promo trailer released, shows the intricacies of Roger meeting Brianna, while the synopsis confirms it: "Roger's diligent search for Brianna pays off when he finds her in Wilmington, but their romantic reunion comes to an abrupt halt when she discovered pertinent information that he intentionally kept from her."
The 30-second trailer opens with Roger questioning a stranger "Sir, have you seen this lady?" and showing a hand-drawn portrait of Brianna, to which he is replied "I'm sorry I haven't". However, that stranger happens to be Fergus but Roger does not know about his connection to Jamie and Claire.
The scene moves away from the disappointed Roger to Brianna's encounter with Stephen Bonnet, who asks her "perhaps you can change my luck" handing out a silver ring that he stole from her mother Claire Fraser, in episode one of season 4. Brianna recognizes the wedding band and quips "where did you get this?"
Meanwhile, Jamie Fraser and William Tryon are in a serious conversation as the governor of North Carolina says "Insurgents and a leader among them," naming "Murtagh Fitzgibbons" as he is spotted lurking in the woods about to do something serious as he grudgingly mutters "let's take our money back."
Jamie, who is Murtagh's godson tells Claire to distract the governor while he warns Murtagh of the precarious position he is in. “I’ll buy you as much time as I can,” Claire affirms Jamie. The quest search for Brianna comes to a hopeful end in the trailer as Roger overhears her talking as she is heard asking someone; "Do you know where I might be able to buy passage to Cross Creek? I’d like to leave tomorrow." Roger pauses and turns around.
The episode titled 'Wilmington' airs on Starz December 23 and on Amazon Prime Video the next day.
