Brianna’s (Sophie Skelton) reunion with Jamie (Sam Heughan) is one of the most anticipated moments going into Season 4 of Outlander. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) left Brianna last season to travel back in time and find Jamie, and now Brianna will do the same and meet her father for the first time as an adult. Here’s everything we know about Season 4’s most anticipated scene.
The upcoming season of Outlander is based on the 4th novel in Diana Gabaldon’s series, Drums of Autumn. We already know that Brianna’s reunion with Jamie will happen, the only question is how it will unfold. Heughan recently revealed that he was gearing up for the pivotal moment and admitted that it was an important scene that will spark other drama this season.
“This season, it’s a huge moment and will be the catalyst to a lot of the drama that unfolds,” Heughan explained.

Executive producer Maril Davis also chimed in on Brianna and Jamie’s reunion this season. According to Express, Davis revealed that Claire originally did not want Brianna to go back in time because she knows it is a dangerous journey.
Last season, fans watch Claire raise Brianna with her husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies), in the 1960s. She then traveled back in time to meet up with Jamie in the 17th century, which is quite the time jump. We don’t know what kind of obstacles Brianna will face as she enters a new world, but it’s clear that her reunion with Jamie isn’t going to be without a few bumps along the road.
Although we know that Brianna will eventually reunite with her father, there are still many questions surrounding their reunion.
For instance, how is Brianna going to travel back in time? Will she time travel via the stones like her mom? What about Brianna’s love interest, Roger (Richard Rankin)? Will she leave him behind to find her father?

While Brianna travels back to find her parents, Jamie and Claire will be busy starting new lives in Colonial America. The couple was left shipwrecked in the Season 3 finale and washed up onshore in the New World.
They will face a slew of new challenges this season, including coming face to face with Native Americans and dealing with the beginnings of the American Revolution. They will also be setting up Fraser’s Ridge, which will be their base of operations for seasons to come.
Season 4 of Outlander will premiere on Starz this November.
