“I think anyone who’s read Diana’s books will say, oh crap, I never saw that coming,” says Outlander star Caitriona Balfe. “Because there are just a sequence of twists and turns. You know, I think that’s the great thing about this series of books, and it’s a great thing about our show. And I’m sure this is the reason why Ron and Maril were so hungry to make it, is that you’re constantly being kept on your toes. I mean, who would have thought we would end up on ships and in Jamaica this season?”

“You never know what to expect,” says Balfe. “And the great thing about it being a time-traveling fantasy is the story can go anywhere and very frequently does. And it just keeps it really interesting for all of us.”


Caitriona Balfe as Claire travels through the stones back to 1948.  She’s pregnant,  with her husband from the 18th century.

“I’ve read every book that we’ve filmed,” says Balfe. “So, Season one, I read book one before we filmed season one, the same with season two, the same with season three. And, I’m currently halfway through book four because we are about to start season four. So I like to have read it. It gives you an overview of where your character is going to go, but then, obviously, once we get into production, the scripts are your guidance.”

Sam Heughan is Jamie he’s Claire’s Husband in the the 18th century. He’s fighting the battle of Culloden. Jamie looses the battle and he’s lost Claire and their child with her missing.

Tobias Menzies is Frank her husband in 1948 he’s got issues with the fact that his wife is pregnant with another mans child. And she’s been gone a while.

This season years pass. Both Claire and Jamie attempt to live with just the memory of the other. But when Claire feels she could return to Jamie will she take it or has to much time passed.
