What Will Happen in Outlander Season 7 Part 2?

At the end of Outlander Season 7, Part 1, Claire and Jamie return to Scotland after a long absence and following intense events, including battlefield surgery and a run-in with Arch Bug. 

Jamie survives a close call on the battlefield thanks to Claire's intervention, and their journey back home is marked by emotional moments and encounters with historical figures like Benedict Arnold. 

Meanwhile, in the 1980s, Roger and Buck travel through the stones to rescue Brianna’s son, taken by Rob Cameron, while Brianna stays behind with their daughter, Mandy.

Season 7, Part 2 is expected to continue adapting events from Gabaldon's seventh book, An Echo in the Bone, and move into the eighth book, Written in My Own Heart's Blood.

Jamie, Claire, and Young Ian will return to Scotland after the American Revolutionary War, visiting Lallybroch after delivering Jamie's cousin Simon’s body. 

In the 20th century, Roger and Bree discovered that Rob Cameron had kidnapped their son, Jemmy, likely taking him to the 18th century to find hidden Jacobite gold near Fraser's Ridge. This leads Roger to follow them into the past. 

Key plot points include whether William will learn Jamie is his biological father, the potential return of Arch Bug seeking revenge on Young Ian, and the romantic tension between Young Ian and Rachel, with William Ransom as a rival. 

Patient fans will see exactly how the next eight episodes unfold sometime this November. In addition, Season 8 and a prequel spin-off series titled Blood of My Blood have been greenlit.
