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 inter-cut 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. Written by Sai

Finest one and half hour of television
24 July 2018 | by oneir-razaSee all my reviews

This was the best episode of Outlander and I couldn't lift my eyes off the screen for the whole 1 hour and 28 minutes the episode was on. The story of Jamie and Claire has reached a climax over here with parallels between the 20th century and 18th century. This episode along with its many other beautiful aspects was an ode to the true love Jamie and Claire shared that transcended time, boundaries, war, enemies and everything else in between. The direction, production value, acting of all the actors in this episode even the actress playing Brianna because she easily passes of as an annoying spoilt brat. I am truly an awe of this beautiful show. I don't ever think an episode of Outlander or any show in general (no exaggeration here) can top 'Dragonfly in Amber' for me. A lot of thanks to the creators of this show and specially Dianna Gabbon for this extraordinary story.
