The Mohawk that brought him there pushes Roger down the route as the natives defeat him regularly in some sort of initiation approach. Will Roger endure long plenty of for Claire and Jamie to get there? Supporters will have to tune in to uncover out!
In the meantime, right here are a number of points to hold in thoughts for the relaxation of the time:
- Murtagh and Bonnet were taken into custody. Will they go to the gallows or will Bonnet escape when once again?
- Considering that Lord John approved Bree’s proposal, will he be appearing much more typically? We hope so.
- Jamie and Claire’s journey with Ian is even now months absent from remaining finished. Will they entire it by the time Bree provides the child? The clock is undoubtedly ticking.
