Outlander fans may have spotted a flaw in Briannas kidnap plot and the gold
Outlander: Season 7 part 2 teaser for STARZ drama
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Outlander season 7 and the Outlander novels by Diana Gabaldon
Outlander season seven saw Brianna MacKenzie (played by Sophie Skelton) left terrified after it looked like her son Jemmy (Blake Johnston-Miller) had been kidnapped by her colleague Rob Cameron (Chris Fulton).
Roger MacKenzie (Richard Rankin) went to Craig na Dun to search for his son, only to find the child’s tartan scarf with the distinctive Tufty Club badge on it lying discarded in the grass by the time portal.
The historian returned to Lallybroch and told Brianna he believed Jemmy had been taken through the stones.
Brianna believed Rob wanted the Spaniard’s gold in North Carolina, leading Roger to make the perilous journey back to the past with his ancestor Buck MacKenzie (Diarmaid Murtagh) as they went to rescue Jemmy – the only one who knew where the treasure trove was hidden.
Meanwhile, Brianna remained in the present with their daughter Amanda (Rosa Morris), where they hoped they were safer than in the past.

Brianna was left bereft, unsure if she would see either Roger or Jemmy ever again.
However, there seemed to be one glaring error in Roger and Brianna’s theory: Jemmy and Rob didn’t need to travel back in time.
Why would Rob Cameron kidnap Jemmy if the gold is in 20th century?
Rob and Jemmy simply needed to travel to North Carolina in the present day to find where the gold was hidden.
Indeed, there was a good chance the gold may have remained in its hiding place for 200 years.

Moreover, it would probably have been easier for Rob to take Jemmy and look using modern technology, such as airplanes, and maps rather than just relying on the schoolboy’s memory and ship in the 1800s.
As Outlander fans have seen from Claire Fraser’s (Caitríona Balfe) journey back to Jamie (Sam Heughan) in season three, everything was very carefully planned.
Claire not only took items such as money with her but also made sure to dress the part and not stand out like the first time.
For Rob to have just made a last-minute decision seems short-sighted on his part given what he would have read in Roger’s notes on time travel.
Fans will have to wait and see what has happens to Jemmy and Rob but there is every chance they could still be in the 20th century.
If this is the case, it could throw up other problems with Brianna now having to fend for herself and launch another search to find Jemmy.
Additionally, with Roger now separated from his family, it’s not clear if he will make it back 200 years or end up somewhere else.
After all, Buck managed to travel forward in time to the present, something which hasn’t really been seen much in Outlander before.
In the seventh novel, An Echo in the Bone, there is a definitive close to this story arc with Brianna realizing her son and Rob are still in the present and managing to save Jemmy.
However, it’s not clear if the writers of the show will be following the novel or take a different direction.
