‘Outlander’ Season 5, Episode 10 Preview: ‘Mercy Shall Follow Me’

Fans can’t wait for more Outlander. Season 5 is shaping up to be one of the best and fans are calling for more. Luckily, we have the latest promo trailer for episode 10 to hold us over for the week. We’ve broken the trailer down below.

‘Bonnet’s only a man’

The promo opens with Jamie (Sam Heughan) speaking with his wife, Claire (Caitriona Balfe). They appear to be discussing Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers), the man who raped Brianna (Sophie Skelton), their daughter.

“Bonnet’s only a man,” Jamie says.

“And nothing more,” Claire finishes his thought.

It looks like they will be following through on their plan to have a meeting set up with Bonnet to sell Jamie’s whiskey. Hopefully they’ll be able to go through with this plan without any snags.

Everyone is getting ready for a fight

Next, we see Roger (Richard Rankin) holding a pistol. “I’ve never killed a man or fought in battle. I’m no marksman and only a half-decent swordsman. But he’s mine. I will take him,” Roger tells Jamie. Clearly, he means Bonnet.

It’s nice to see this change of heart in Roger. In episode 9, he was telling Jamie he wasn’t sure if he could do it, but now it sounds like he’s found the strength to defend his wife and child.

While Roger speaks, we see a boot stomp on the ground and what looks like Claire off in the distance kneeling down. Could that be Bonnet’s boot?

In the next shot, we see Bonnet saying, “Darkness closes in.” It sounds like things are about to heat up in the worst way in episode 10. There are numerous shots of men with their guns out pointed at someone. Even Young Ian (John Bell) is pointing his firearm and looking ready for a fight.

‘Bri, run!’

It sounds like Bonnet could definitely be after Bri and her child in the next episode. The next shot is Brianna looking terrified on the beach. Claire screams out, “Bri, run! Go!” Brianna looks ready to bolt out of there, but will she stay and fight?

It makes sense considering the season has been leading up to this. Stephen Bonnet may have finally found Bri and it looks like Jamie and Roger could be somewhere else when things actually go down. There was a shot of Ian though, and it looks like he could be in the same place. Hopefully that’s the case and Bonnet can be subdued.

Fans don’t want to see Bonnet prevail or find a way to take Jemmy from Bri and Roger. Hopefully, someone will be able to stop Bonnet, since it seems like that’s what this episode might be about. There’s a lot of foreshadowing going on this season.

Who will be the one to stop Bonnet? Hopefully, fans will get much-needed answers in episode 10 of Outlander. Season 5 has been excellent so far and fans would love to see another win for the Frasers.
