‘Monsters and Heroes’

The promo for episode 9 starts with Jamie (Sam Heughan) talking to Roger (Richard Rankin). Yes, Roger is still alive and talking. They’re sitting around a fire together. “We must kill Stephen Bonnet. If I cannot do it you must,” he tells his son-in-law.

Fans will recall that Bonnet (Ed Speleers) is still alive and up to his old ruthless antics. Jamie knows that Bonnet is a problem that needs to be dealt with. If for some reason he can’t be the one to do it, then it needs to be Roger.

There’s been quite a bit of foreshadowing about Bonnet coming to Fraser’s Ridge. This could be a definite possibility considering he thinks Jemmy is his child. He could come and try to take him and no one is about to let that happen.

Brianna deals with her reality

The next scene is Brianna (Sophie Skelton) talking to Roger while working. “Your dad thinks Bonnet could have the right to take Jemmy away from us,” Roger tells her in a look of panic and worry. They both realize the situation isn’t going away, but only getting worse. Pretty soon, they’ll have to deal with Bonnet one way or the other.

Claire contemplates the worst

The next scene cuts to Claire (Caitriona Balfe) speaking to her daughter about loss. “If I were to lose you, or Jamie, I would never be quite whole,” Claire says to Bri. She’s clearly contemplating the worst and it’s a terrible thought.

The next shot is of Jamie in bed talking to his wife. “There’s a war coming,” Jamie says to Claire. Then we see him aiming his firearm at something in another shot.

“Only one of us gets to be frightened at any time. Right now it’s my turn,” Claire says to someone. Next, we see Claire aiming a firearm at something or someone. Could this mean something might happen to Jamie or Bri? Claire looks very distraught and the earlier clip was her telling Bri how she’d feel to lose either her or Jamie. It seems like some major drama is about to unfold.

Trouble is coming to Fraser’s Ridge

There’s a lot of scenes of the main characters looking like they’re going through something serious. Jamie and his close friends and family carry weapons in the woods like they’re about to be attacked. Something is definitely coming and it seems like it will involve trouble on Fraser’s Ridge.

Episode 9 of Outlander is going to be action-packed if this trailer is anything to go on. Hopefully the main characters will all live to see another day and make it through whatever is coming.
