The Frasers will make one last attempt at preventing the Battle of Culloden in the next episode of “Outlander” Season 2. A Sneak peek video shows the couple discussing how they ended up in this situation, despite so much planning and efforts on their part.

[Spoiler alert]

A preview scene from episode 12 posted on Vanity Fair reveals that the Jacobite army is camped just a few miles from Culloden. Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) is quick to realise what that means for the war and the future of the Highlander culture.

Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is particularly angry at the way things turned out. After putting in so much efforts and planning; they still ended up in the same place they were trying to avoid. She realises in the clip that changing history may not be possible.

Jamie (Sam Heughan) on the other hand is hopeful of preventing the battle. He knows that the general of the Jacobite army will call for a meeting of the War Council in the next episode of “Outlander” Season 2. The young Scotsman plans to use his influence over the Prince to prevent the disaster at Culloden.

Lord General George Murray (Julian Wadham) has an uneasy relationship with Jamie. Even though the general recognises that the young Scotsman has a keen military mind, he doesn’t like his judgements or orders questioned. The Battle of Culloden is just three days away in the episode.

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly gives the fans first look at two new and very important characters - Brianna Randall (Sophie Skelton) and Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin), who are yet to be introduced on the show. Brianna is the daughter of Jamie and Claire.

“I really think what we care most about is whether people are going to be happy with these characters that they’ve been waiting two years for,” Rankin said.

The two characters will be introduced in “Outlander” Season 2, but are expected to play a much bigger role in the next season. Skelton pointed out that there have been some changes for her character from the books written by Diana Gabaldon, on which the show is based. In the books she is from Boston, but she won’t have an accent in the TV series because the writers assumed that her life in a private Catholic school would have made her a “standard American.”
