‘Outlander’ Sneak Peek: The Hunt for Bonnet Begins in ‘Mercy Shall Follow Me’ (PHOTOS)
The second half of Outlander‘s fifth season is well underway as the Frasers overcame death and other dangers of the 18th century, but one goal for the family remains — get rid of the threat known as Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers).
Fans learned that the pirate escaped death after he survived the prison explosion from Season 4 in which Brianna (Sophie Skelton) confronted her rapist and revealed his potential paternity over her son. Since Season 5’s reveal that Bonnet was alive, he’s been trying to get his mitts on Jemmy and the fortune promised to the boy by his great-great aunt Jocasta (Maria Doyle Kennedy).
In a sneak peek at the latest episode, “Mercy Shall Follow Me,” the hunt for Bonnet begins as Roger (Richard Rankin) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) follow-up with Philip Wylie (Chris Donald), who promised to arrange a meetup between Jamie (under his alias of Alexander Malcolm) and the pirate.
What will happen? Viewers will have to tune in to find out, but until then, check out the sneak peek photos released ahead of the installment offering a look at what’s to come. Don’t miss the action when Outlander airs this weekend on Starz.
