Last week’s Outlander saw Brianna’s (Sophie Skelton) engineering skills and quick thinking save her father Jamie (Sam Heughan) from near death following a gruesome snake bite. Now, an ELLE.com exclusive sneak peek at this Sunday’s episode shows Bree and her Claire (Caitriona Balfe) collaborating to take their knowledge from the future wide. The mother-daughter pair pay a visit to a glassblower for help crafting a syringe, and their collaboration marks a stark difference from Bree’s earlier concerns about her time-traveling mother meddling in history.
Of course, there’s no doubt this needle will come in handy for Dr. Claire—as Outlander fans know far too well, the Frasers and their cohort are rarely safe from certain danger. Here’s the synopsis for Sunday’s episode.
Jamie and Roger implement their plan to eliminate the threat looming over their family, but it goes awry when their prey proves more devious than expected. Brianna is forced to confront her greatest fear and fight for her and her son’s lives.
As Heughan told ELLE.com after the events of episode 7, the final episodes of season 5 see the family start to “fracture”—”They’re torn apart by different circumstances,” he said. Richard Rankin, who plays Bree’s husband Roger, was a bit more positive: “[The season] keeps getting better and better. We get a really exciting finale. From episode 8 on it escalates to that climax.”
Outlander Season 5 Episode 10, “Mercy Shall Follow Me,” airs Sunday, April 26 at 8 p.m. ET and on the Starz app.
