With "Outlander" Season 3 moving at such a stellar pace, it's no wonder that it keeps taking us on the emotional rollercoaster every time the new episode comes out. And "Of Lost Things" was no different. While the previous episode emphasized Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her life in Boston over the course of twenty years, this one, however, focused almost entirely on Jamie (Sam Heughan) and his life as a groom at the Helwater estate.

Of course, it wouldn't be an "Outlander" episode if it didn't keep us on the edge of our seats. With that in mind let's talk about the most exciting moments from "Of Lost Things." But be careful though, because the spoilers will follow.

All hope is lost

After a tragic death of her 20th-century husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies), Claire is finally able to dedicate herself entirely to the goal of finding Jamie. Following the events of Season 2 finale, where Claire had a hard time explaining to Brianna (Sophie Skelton) that she is actually the daughter of the 18th-century Scottish Highlander, an epic search continues.

Even though the episode began with a touch of hope when Claire, Brianna, and Roger (Richard Rankin) discovered Jamie's post-Culloden whereabouts, the joy soon turned to ashes in their mouths as his name disappeared from the records after Ardsmuir prison was shut down. So their next step was to check ship manifests in the hope that Jamie's name might be in there somewhere.

It was then that Claire decided it was time to stop chasing the ghost and go back to Boston with Brianna.

An emotional goodbye

On the other hand, Jamie's story in this episode began with him at Helwater in 1756 serving as a groom for the Dunsany family. And given their ever-growing resentment towards Jacobites due to loss of a son in the battle of Prestonpans, Jaime had to keep a low profile under an alias, Alex MacKenzie.

Nevertheless, he seemed happy working with the horses. After all, the Duncans were treating him really well, with the exception of the eldest daughter Geneva (Hannah James), who didn't miss a chance to undermine Jamie by calling him "The useless Scotsman."

However, after finding out that she has to marry the old Lord Ellesmere (James Cameron Steward), Geneva ordered Jamie to have sex with her because she didn't want to lose her virginity to some old man.

Although Jamie refused at first, he had to do what Geneva said because she found out who he really was thanks to Lord Melton (Sam Hoare).

Eventually, they had sex and, as we found out a couple of months later, Jamie ended up impregnating Geneva that very night. Then, she went into labor and died in the process. And given the fact that they never consummated a marriage, Lord Ellesmere threatened to kill a child, but fortunately, Jamie shot him just in time to save the baby. Because of his bravery, he was offered freedom by the Duncans, but he decided to stay anyway because of his newborn son whom they named Willie.

Since then, six years had passed. Willie (Clark Butler) grew into boyhood and began to resemble his biological father more and more with each passing day.

It was because of that fact that Jamie eventually decided to leave Helwater, but not before he left Willie into good hands of his friend John Gray (David Berry) who decided to marry Geneva's sister Isobel (Tanya Reynolds). Then, in what was the most heartbreaking scene of the whole season, Jamie said goodbye to Willie and rode off to Scotland while the boy desperately tried to stop him.
