Outlander fans, the wait for season 6 is almost over—but to help you bide your time until the show returns next month, we have an exclusive clip from the premiere. In the video above, Brianna and Roger contemplate the quintessential time traveler’s dilemma: if the past changes, how might it change the future?
Roger starts off by asking Bree if she wants some tea or coffee, before launching in to what sounds like a criticism of the Boston Tea Party: “Imagine how many good cuppas are gonna to be tossed into the bloody harbor.”
“Hey whose side are you on?” Bree quickly questions her husband, who reminds her that both he and her mother, Claire, are British. “Oh, you know I haven’t forgotten,” she says, matter of fact, “but now that you’re here, I mean you’re obviously a patriot, right?”
Despite his skepticism for the Revolutionary War’s inciting incident, Roger doesn’t hesitate to align with his fellow colonists—even if they throw tea in the harbor. “Well of course. If America doesn’t become America, who knows what that world will look like? World War I, World War II—how might they play out? It’s really starting to hit me: the clock is ticking.”
The clip ends with Brianna simply asking, “What can we do?”
