On the official Twitter account for the series, a new video has popped up where some of the cast reveals their favorite moments from the newest season. Sophie Skelton plays Brianna and she was the first to share her insight.

“I think my favorite scene was probably on the beach with Brianna and Claire because we were just running along the beach and collecting shells,” Skelton revealed. “It’s a really nice moment. They don’t really get much time together, just the two of them, and even though it was raining all day, it was just really fun.”

Caitriona Balfe plays Claire Fraser and Brianna’s mother. She really enjoyed filming her on-screen daughter’s wedding, which was a favorite moment for many fans watching at home. It was nice to see everyone on Fraser’s Ridge enjoying themselves so much.

“I think the night of Brianna and Roger’s wedding was very fun to film,” Balfe said. “We all were outside and there was a lot of Cèilidh dancing going on and that was really fun.”

Richard Rankin’s favorite moment was rescuing Claire

Richard Rankin plays Roger, Brianna’s husband. He’s gone through so much in season 5 that it’s hard to believe at times that he’s still whole. In episode 12, Roger takes a life while rescuing Claire and it’s something he struggles to deal with.

“I think my favorite on-screen moment was probably in episode 12 when they go to rescue Claire,” Rankin said. “It’s just the drive, the passion, the determination from Roger that I’ve been looking forward to playing these kinds of pivotal changes in the character. See what he’s capable of. See what he’s willing to do. So that was very fun, if fun is the right word, to play.”

Sam Heughan’s favorite moment came in episode 7

Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser, also took part in the video and he says that episode 7 was his favorite. He was challenged when it came to losing Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix), coupled with the battle scenes in the episode.

“There are so many great sort of individual episodes,” Heughan said. “I know even the first episode will be a great fan favorite. You know, the wedding. But for me, it does go back to Murtagh and I think the loss of Murtagh in episode 7, the battle. It was great to do sort of more action scenes. And finally, to lose Murtagh was a great acting challenge. So for me, that’s my favorite episode.”

These are some of the main characters’ favorite on-screen moments from season 5 of Outlander.
