13 Great Murtagh Moments on ‘Outlander’ Over the Seasons (PHOTOS)
[Warning: This gallery contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 5, Episode 7 of Outlander, “The Ballad of Roger Mac.”]
Outlander fans got to spend five seasons with Duncan Lacroix‘s Murtagh Fitzgibbons — more than fans of the book did, which saw him perish in the Battle of Culloden. In the Starz series, Jamie Fraser’s (Sam Heughan) godfather lived to see America and fight for freedom from British rule with the regulators.
Sadly, that all came to an end in the Sunday, March 29 episode, as the fan favorite met his end at the hands of one of Jamie’s dutiful militia men. Desperate to save him, Jamie dragged Murtagh all the way to Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) medical tent only to learn what viewers and he himself already knew deep down — there was no saving his father figure, who’d already succumbed to a gunshot wound.
In this time of reflection, we’re taking a look back at some of Murtagh’s greatest moments throughout the years. From Season 1’s quiet moments to silly reunions in Season 4 and beyond. Scroll through as we remember the highlander who maintained his spirit and loyalty until the very end.
