The Season 2 finale of Starz’s “Outlander” will be a super-sized 90 minutes long, the network announced Monday.
The much-anticipated arrival of Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin) and Brianna Randall (Sophie Skelton) will take place in the episode, which is 30 minutes longer than usual.
The season-finale episode is called “Dragonfly in Amber,” after the second book in the Diana Gabaldon book series, and the book the second season is based on.
Here is the official description for the episode:
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 intercut 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.
“Outlander” was recently renewed for Seasons 3 and 4.
Prior to the Season 2 finale, Starz will be running a marathon of the first 12 episodes of the season on Saturday, July 2.
