The Outlander Season 5 Episode 1 Recap:
The episode starts with a flashback, as we see Murtagh pledging an oath to a young Jamie. In the present day, we see preparations underway for Roger and Bree’s wedding, as Jamie and Claire reminisce about theirs. Claire’s voiceover fills us in as we are informed that they live on Fraser’s Ridge among a larger group of settlers.
The wedding ceremony itself is lovely and joyful, although Murtagh cannot make it, and some unwelcome guests like Governor Tryon are present. The night of the wedding has a lovemaking montage, as Jocasta meets Murtagh, Bree and Roger consummate their marriage, and Claire and Jamie struggle to have a good time without waking Jem.
Jamie, meanwhile, invites Josiah to stay in the same settlement as them. Claire is unwilling, at first, because he has the mark of a thief, but Jamie is sympathetic. Roger and Jocasta have a disagreement about the latter’s property, which prompts Roger to claim Jem as his own, with a blood oath. Trouble is around the corner for Jamie as well.
Tryon comes to collect and instructs Jamie that he has to hunt and finish off Murtagh. Jamie gathers some people, gets into gear and prepares for the hunt. We have a slightly problematic but visually resplendent scene here, as he burns a cross to mark the start of the hunt. Obviously, the burning cross of the Scotsmen went on to be incorporated by the KKK as an intimidation tactic, enforcing their racism. However, considering the historical context in which it is used, the show does no wrong.
Finally, we see Jamie and Murtagh spending some quiet time, as the former releases the latter from his bond, and urges him to go far, and be difficult to track down.
