Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe relationship discussed in Outlander Season 3

In reality, it's only been 14 months since Outlander's season two finale aired. The third season will cover her third book in the "Outlander" series, "Voyager". Jamie's story will follow what happens during and after the Battle of Culloden, but Claire will be in the 20th century adjusting to her new life with Frank in Boston. Still, the Sassenach admires her husband for everything that he has done for her and her child.

As those who've read Gabaldon's 1993 novel Voyager (from which the current season draws) or were among the lucky fans at San Diego Comic-Con this summer when executive producer Ronald D. Moore showed a preview of the opening episode know, this 13-episode run picks up nearly exactly where the second season left off in one sense. It has to be very easy for her on-screen alter ego Claire to get it on with Jamie, especially since Caitriona and Sam are so close. "We chose to expand on what is told in the book". After yet another disastrous series of events in Paris including a whole lot of sexual assaults and the loss of Jamie and Claire's baby, they give up and head back to Scotland to try another history-changing strategy, which also fails. The younger version is Berrux, who also played Fergus in season 2, while the older version is played by newcomer Domboy. In conversation with Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa, she said she nearly didn't get the career defining role due to a passport mix up.

Ultimately, though, what matters most in Outlander is the relationship between Claire and Jamie, and our relationship to each of them. The couple will move to the USA together in the 1940s, but this is a marriage of convenience rather than love. "She's a compromised woman emotionally, spiritually, and she's in this very compromised marriage".

In addition to watching Claire's professional evolution in season three, fans will be gifted with a more in-depth peek into Claire and Brianna's multi-faceted relationship as mother and daughter. Outlander really sings when it's in Scotland, though - the supporting characters we've come to know and love are mostly there, and the story is just more interesting. "One of the remarkable things about the show is that it keeps moving very swiftly".

A very important character reappears on the show, this time as a grown man, when Lord John Grey is sent to be the new governor of Ardsmuir Prison.


Jamie ends up surviving Culloden.

"The encounter between him and Jamie is spoken about but not directly, or you don't see it directly in the books".

The Murrays - Jamie's sister Jenny and her husband Ian - have been holding down the fort at Lallybroch all these years while Jamie was off trying to stop the thousands of deaths that accompanied the Highlander uprising in support of Prince Charlie. "It's a slightly dream-like dance of death; part fight, part embrace".

I love the beginning of this season because you see what life is like for these two characters without each other and how impactful that is in two very, very different ways.

The first half of the season takes us through the couple's 20 years apart - in different time periods - where they must learn to live without each other. Expect more sparks between Brianna and Roger (Richard Rankin), but don't expect them to walk down the aisle as fast as Jamie and Claire. The action will take Claire and Jamie to Jamaica, and more.
