Naturally, viewers must be curious to learn more about Autumn, her connection to the Abbotts, and the actress who plays her. In that case, we’ve got you covered! Here is everything you need to know about Autumn from ‘Outer Range.’ SPOILERS AHEAD!
Who Is Autumn In Outer Range?
Autumn is introduced in the series premiere episode of ‘Outer Range,’ titled ‘The Void.’ After arriving at the Abbott Ranch, she convinces Royal to allow her to camp on his property. Royal reluctantly agrees, and Autumn begins to explore the Abbott Ranch. After Royal’s sons, Perry and Rhett, cause the death of their neighbor Trevor Tillerson, Royal dumps his body into the black void. However, Autumn catches him in the act but promises to keep his secret. Nonetheless, she pushes Royal into the black void, causing him to experience events from the future. In the future timeline, Royal learns that Autumn is somehow connected to the mining company BY9.
In the present, Autumn learns that the mysterious symbol she is endlessly scribbling in her journal is the Abbott family’s brand. Thus, it is evident that Autumn shares a connection to the family or at least their land. She later discovers a stone that contains a mineral that has time-altering properties. Autumn seems to know a lot about the black void and is fascinated by its time-traveling abilities. One prevailing theory among the show’s fans is that Autumn is actually a future version of Royal’s granddaughter, Amy. However, this theory is yet to be proven true.
