Who doesn’t enjoy a good period drama with a passionate love story? Outlander is one of the most beloved period dramas of all time, showing a fascinating Brianna and Roger love story, as well as the enduring love between our main protagonists, Jamie and Claire. We will take a closer look at the relationship of young lovers, namely the love story of Brianna and Roger in Outlander.
Outlander Brianna and Roger Love Story
It’s always been a pleasure for us to see Jamie and Claire’s love story grow on Outlander. Over and above this, we are introduced to the enviable love story of Roger and Brianna in the 2nd season of the Starz’ hit show. Roger and Brianna’s relationship has grown throughout the series, from the beginning to the present. Both the couple’s personalities and their relationship underwent adjustments.
Brianna (played by Sophie Skelton) and Roger (played by Richard Rankin) met when Claire and Brianna traveled to Scotland in the 2nd season of Outlander. Brianna initially kept Roger at a distance, but the two eventually became friends and began to spend time together. After a while, Brianna created a bond with Roger when the two found out the truth that Frank is not Brianna’s biological father. Also, the two gradually got closer while helping Claire to find Jamie which led to the epic love story of Brianna and Roger.
Brianna is the daughter of Claire and Jamie. However, she didn’t know the truth about her real father and was brought up by Frank and Claire in Boston, in order to provide her with better living conditions. Despite the fact that Frank was aware that Brianna was not his daughter, he adored her anyways. He even trained her how to ride a horse and shoot a gun in case she went back in time. Unfortunately, Frank was tragically killed in a car accident just after Brianna turns 17.
Claire then took Brianna to Scotland and told her that her biological father was an 18th-century man, and Brianna was upset with Claire for hiding the truth. Brianna eventually met Jamie in 1769 and they caught up right away. It was not easy for them to get along because of the generation gap, though.
Does Roger Die in Outlander?
When Roger faced death in the 5th season of Outlander, the Roger Mackenzie fandom was on the edge of their seats. Roger would have died hanging at the Battle of Alamance if Claire hadn’t saved him. However, it was a traumatizing incident for Roger, and he had to suffer from PTSD for a long while. Distressingly, Roger lost his nice voice as well as his capacity to sing beautifully. This incident made a huge impact on Roger’s life and his relationship with Brianna, and it left him with flashbacks like a silent movie. Despite this, he came to the realization that he wanted to live for Brianna.
Does Brianna Marry Roger in Outlander?
Yes! Outlander Season 5 premiere depicts Brianna and Roger’s magnificent wedding ceremony. The wedding of everyone’s favorite young couple had been eagerly anticipated by Outlander fans, including us, so the first episode of the 5th season was breathtaking with all of the moments from the ceremony on Fraser’s Ridge. We saw Brianna putting on her fancy wedding dress with the help of her mother and the emotional intimacy among the members of the Fraser family.
After all the hardships the couple came across throughout the show, such as the traumatic event of Brianna being raped by Stephen Bonnet in the 8th episode of season 4, we were finally relieved since the love story of Brianna and Roger ended happily.
