‘Outlander’ Preview: 5 People With Untold Adventures in “Down The Rabbit Hole”
Outlander is full of characters that we meet for only a short time. We’re then left wishing that we knew more about most of them. This week, the show is diving down the rabbit hole to follow Brianna through the stones. But before that happens, let’s take a look at five characters whose greatest adventures are still untold.
- Roger Wakefield. Roger is one of the most fascinating characters that we know next to nothing about. Lucky for us, he’s the one that we’re most likely to learn about this season. We know that he’s a history professor like Frank, we know that he’s in love with Brianna, and we know that he’s going to at least visit Craig Na Dun this week. Is he one of the few who are able to pass through the Stones? And if he does decide to follow Brianna into the past, will he be able to find her?
- Murtagh Fraser. It’s no secret that Murtagh is our favorite character. We spent most of last season hoping for a glimpse of him (and writing about it nearly every week as well). Now that he’s finally back, we can’t get enough of him. We need to know more about what he’s been up to for the last 20 years, including just how he became a de facto leader of The Regulators.
- Laoghaire MacKenzie. Ok, bear with us here. We know that anytime Laoghaire shows up, it’s going to be a bad time for the Frasers. But she’s also a way more complex character than we’ve seen. Not only is she a widow, she’s also a survivor of domestic abuse and somehow has managed to raise two (mostly) kind-hearted daughters. That’s an incredible feat, and it shows that maybe there’s more to the fair-haired Mistress MacKimmie than we can see.
- Frank Randall. We learned a lot about Frank’s life in Season 3, but it was shown through Claire’s eyes. While not the same hate-fueled filter she has when looking at Laoghaire, Claire is still pretty biased when it comes to Frank. We want to know more about who he truly was, how he saw Brianna, and how Brianna saw him. Now that we’re several years past Frank’s death, all we can hope for are some very informative flashbacks.
- Stephen Bonnet. We’re not going to try to sell you on this one, because we know you want the same thing as us. After all, who doesn’t want to know more about the charming yet dastardly pirate? Or at least what he did with Claire’s wedding ring after stealing it from her? We need to know what led him down this path, who his crew is, and just what would happen to him if Claire and Jamie ever get their hands on him again. The good news is, he’s back on our screens this week.
