Here are NEW Stills and Interview with Sophie Skelton from Deadline

From Deadline:

The season five finale of Starz Outlander ended on a high note, kind of. Tonight’s episode, which was titled Never My Love, was written by showrunner Matthew B. Roberts and Toni Graphia and directed by Jamie Payne.

The finale opens with Claire (Caitriona Balfe), who has been taken captive by Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy) and his men after Lionel discovered that Claire was using the guise of Dr. Rawlings to publish articles with innovative medical tips for the people of the Ridge and accuses Claire of “spreading dangerous ideas.” Claire tries desperately to escape but is tied up and beaten by Lionel’s men.

More after the jump!

While in captivity, Claire meets another time-traveler named Wendigo Donner and promises to get him back to his time if he can save her. Unfortunately, Wendigo only provides little help as he fears the consequences of his action. Things take a dark turn when Lionel and his men set up camp. Claire, gagged and tied up to a tree, is violently sexually assaulted by several men including Lionel.

To dissociate from the assault, Claire escapes mentally into a dream – seeing what seems to be a 70s version of her close family coming together for Thanksgiving dinner.

Meanwhile, it is revealed that while Roger (Richard Rankin), Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Jemmy traveled through the stones, they were thinking of “home” and find themselves in the 1770s once again. As the Mackenzies and Young Ian (John Bell) reach the big house, they notice that the cross has been lit which is an indication of trouble. Jamie (Sam Heughan) fills them in on recent events and Roger and Ian accompany him to retrieve Claire and wage an attack on Lionel’s camp. Jamie and company are able to defeat Claire’s captors and round up the remaining survivors for Claire to have her revenge on the men that brutally assaulted. Claire chooses to honor her oath to not take a life.

Not able to point out which of the men participated in the gang rape, Jamie has all the remaining men killed but spares Lionel’s life for questioning. While on their way back to the ridge, Claire learns Marsali (Lauren Lyle) and her baby survived the previous ambush and Wendigo is nowhere to be found. Claire, visibly shaken and badly bruised, demonstrates a powerful display of resilience declaring, “I’m supposed to be shattered by this. Well, I won’t be.”

  1. Loved the interview. Yes, i am looking forward to Season 6 as well. It will be a long wait – but it will be well worth it in the long run. By then, hopefully Diana’s 9th Outlander Book will be available. Hopefully!
