The Droughtlander has been long and hard (that’s what she said – aren’t you glad I’m doing this again???) but we are almost there. Nov 4th is right around the corner, which means Season 4 of Outlander is perched and waiting to pounce.
We, as fans, have many things to look forward to while Outlander explores the new world by delving into Drums of Autumn.
By the end of season 3, we had a cute young couple Roger Wakefield and Brianna Randall.
By the end of season 4…they will have aged…A BUNCH (like Brianna can get much older than 200 and something?) I am referring to life experience here.
I won’t give away too much plot as that’d be rude but I will share my little love letter to this fantastic couple who you are all sure to fall head over heels in love with.
It started out crazy, didn’t it? Time travel. Dead fathers. Living in two different countries, separated by an ocean. Both of you wanting to be open to love and willing to sacrifice parts of yourselves in order to achieve it. Funny thing, that. Being willing often opens that door big and wide. I’m afraid both of you will be walking right through it.
You were born into the world of Outlander. This world does not go gently for those who love deeply. It will test you. It will punch you in the throat, ask you if you are ok and when you nod…it will punch you again. It doesn’t sound very hopeful, I know. The truth of it is, it wouldn’t be if you didn’t have one another. But you do.
Roger, you are loyal and love deeply. Some might say your love is raw, I would agree because I am the one that says it. You are worthy, dude. So damn worthy. You don’t deserve the shit mountain you need to climb in order to become the man you do. I’ll say this though, many of those things were the spark that lit the fire that burns in Roger Mac, as we will know him to be. You could have chosen to become bitter and full of hate – instead, you chose to be better and full of dead sexiness…*ahem*…sorry…full of dead sexiness. Sorry. I’m stuck.
There is a young woman, that has stolen your heart. You are a gentleman and a fool for her all at the same time. If I didn’t know what an incredible love story this was going to be, I would tell you to get in your orange morris and hit the gas.
Bree, you are so misunderstood. Young, smart, headstrong and when we meet you as a young adult you have just lost the only father you knew. You were understandably distraught during a time when you were coming into your own as a woman. Being told your recently dead dad wasn’t your biological father was a real kick in the teeth. Those watching from the outside thought you should have been thrilled to have a Scottish warrior father from another century floating around but I get it. That’s a lot of shit to take in. Sure, you are a quick-tempered and cerebral- given who ALL your parents are, you really didn’t have a fighting chance. There was no possibility of you being mild-mannered or artificial.
When your mom was having the sex talk with you, I wish she would have mentioned the trials of jumping into situations without thinking about the consequences because, well, she should have learned it would have been a great lesson to pass on to her daughter. Alas, it wasn’t a thing and now…you will go through the same level of IDGAFs as your mom and both you and the man that you love will suffer for it. Granted, that IDGAF attitude of yours makes you stand up and out. You can pretty much deal with anything that gets thrown in your path – it’s a definite case of taking the good with the bad, I suppose.
The truth of it kids, all the crazy shit that you go through is your story. We have watched you both grow up in snippets. You are a part of the next generation of Outlander and we could NOT be more excited to watch all the bumps, turns, free falls and LOVE that you will be showing us.

P.S. Sophie Skelton and Richard Rankin fit into their Bree and Roger puzzle pieces perfectly. I am SO JAZZED to watch these two bring this love story to life.
