Looking for Outlander episodes to watch for Good Friday 2024? We have 8 suggestions.

Easter is a time to focus on death and rebirth. Good Friday is all about the death of Jesus. Even if you don’t celebrate the Christian holiday, it has pagan roots that also focus on rebirth—the beginning of spring and new life.

With that in mind, we’re picking out Outlander episodes that focus on some sort of death. It could be the death of a life known before, or it could be the death of a major character in the series. Here are eight episodes we recommend to watch today.

Outlander Season 1, Episode 1

Let’s go right back to the beginning of the series. This is the start of Claire’s journey into her life with Jamie Fraser. As she falls through the stones, she ends up having to say goodbye to the life that she knew before. She just doesn’t realize that at the time.

At the start, she is clinging onto her old life. She wants to return, and that’s not all too surprising. She is out of time around people who distrust and dislike her. Why would she want to remain here and not return home?

Outlander Season 1, Episode 11

While “Lallybroch” is a great episode and it’s the one that comes after this, “The Witch’s Mark” is the one to watch on Good Friday 2024. This marks the end of Claire’s attempts to get back to her own time period. She says goodbye to that life.

It starts with the risk of her own life. She’s on trial for being a witch, and it’s where she learns that Geillis is a fellow time traveler and also said goodbye to the life she knew before. After Jamie saves Claire, he takes her to Craigh na Dun to go back to her own time period. She can’t do it, though. She makes a choice to say goodbye to her old life and to Frank.

Outlander Season 2, Episode 10

We head to the middle of the Jacobite rebellion with the next episode. Outlander Season 2, Episode 10 is all about the Battle of Prestonpans. It brings a lot of death, including that of a certain English officer who was actually one of the good ones.

However, it’s the death of a great Scottish character that has our hearts. There is so much concern for Rupert after he’s hurt during the battle, and nobody really looks at Angus. In fact, he doesn’t even realize that he is injured until it’s too late. He collapses and dies in Claire’s arms, and it’s heartbreaking.

Outlander Season 2, Episode 11

The Duke of Sandringham had been a major player in the Jacobite rebellion, although we didn’t realize it. We knew from the start not to trust him, and everything came to a head at the end of Outlander Season 2. Events that happened in Paris finally made sense.

“Vengeance Is Mine” is an important episode for Murtagh. After the attack in Paris, he felt like he had failed Claire and Mary. He was able to gain his vengeance and reclaim his honor by killing the Duke of Sandringham and literally offering up the man’s head.

Outlander Season 3, Episode 1

Next, we head to the Season 3 premiere. This is a major one as it brings an end to this first big storyline. We see the end of the first set of characters that really made this series what it was. And yes, I do think Season 2, Episodes 12 and 13 are more than worth watching today, but there are only so many episodes you can get through. That’s why I’m jumping to this one.

Not only do we have the death of Black Jack Randall, but we also have the death of Rupert. He is one of those taken to the barn after being captured at Culloden. He is then executed for treason. There’s a moment between Jamie and Rupert, who watched Jamie killed Dougal before the battle. We get that sort of understanding between them as Rupert doesn’t want to die with things left unsaid or any hatred.

Outlander Season 3, Episode 3

While Claire said goodbye to her old life at the start of the series, she ended up back in it. During the Season 2 premiere, we knew that she would end up back in the 20th century with Frank. It was the start of Season 3 that we saw that life.

In the third episode, Frank told Claire that he wanted a divorce and he wanted to take Brianna to England with him. After an argument, Frank left and he ended up dying in a car accident. Claire had a chance to say goodbye to him and share that she did love him. We just know it wasn’t the love she felt for Jamie.

Outlander Season 5, Episode 7

When it comes to heartbreaking deaths, Outlander certainly manages to bring us the moments. We need a Kleenex or 10 for Outlander Season 5, Episode 7. This is the one where we say goodbye to the last of the characters who aren’t Claire and Jamie from the series premiere.

It’s all about Murtagh. Jamie wants Murtagh to stay away from the Battle of Alamance. In the end, Murtagh sticks around to protect his godson. That bond is forever. Sadly, one of Jamie’s men shoots Murtagh and he dies in Jamie’s arms. Jamie desperately wants Claire to save him, but she knows that he can’t. It’s a heartbreaking goodbye.

Outlander Season 7, Episode 2

Back in Season 5, Bree and Roger tried to get back to their own time. It turned out that home was in the past now, and so, they planned to stay. That was until the birth of Mandy. They had no choice but to go through the stones to save Mandy’s life.

We had so many of the goodbyes in Season 5 that we didn’t need them again. However, we did get a beautiful moment at the beach where Jamie and Roger, Jamie and Bree, and Claire and Roger each had some important moments and goodbyes. This is a great episode to end our list of episodes that say goodbye to either characters or a life once known. This is Bree and Roger’s goodbye to life in the past.
