Outlander season 3 can’t get here fast enough so I am allowing myself freedom to fangirl any and every chance I get. This week my obsession falls on good ole Roger… and can we just take a minute to breathe in all that is Roger the cutie Patootie Wakefield?
I am so excited to see more of Roger in season three, even if it’s only for the first handful of episodes. Now we know that Jamie is the King of men (obviously) but Roger is most certainly the prince. He’s the guy in high school who was super sweet and kind of a book nerd but after college he filled out his lanky frame and grew into his bushy eyebrows. When you suddenly bump into each other years later at the local pub, you think daaaaaaammnn Roger is bringing sexy back! But enough of my imaginary meet cute. **fans self voraciously**
I’m a bit more creative like Brianna is and I like to make things or see how I could make things better (in book 4 you’ll see more of this from Brianna). So naturally her type in men (Roger) is exactly the type of guy I would gravitate to and — well marry, actually. Tall, dark, handsome…and those eyebrows.
I mean, I kind of have a type. Am I right? I realized in book 4 (spoiler alert) when Roger asks Bree to marry him suddenly, that he reminded me of my husband. Then my literary crush took a serious turn. Roger is eager and falls in love with Brianna quickly (real Husband was the same) and he is just so darn sexy that you can hardly resist. Roger wanted more than just sex with Brianna he wanted a lifetime (again same as real Husband). Brianna is fiercely independent and it was Roger’s consistency, determination and devotion to Bree that ultimately won her over (and yet again we share a parallel life). And then it hits me — we are Bree and Roger.
And I will leave you with the good ole “Rat Satire” clip HERE. ❤️
Which couple do you identify more with? Jamie & Claire, Roger & Bree, Ian & Jenny, Fergus & Marsali and dare I mention Jamie & Laoghaire?
