Last week on Outlander, our favorite couple were broken and lost to each other for a while, as Claire (Caitriona Balfe) lost baby “Faith,” and Jamie (Sam Heughan) rotted in the Bastille for dueling with Blackjack Randall (Tobias Menzies). She thought Jamie had betrayed her, but there was more to it than that. Randall had attacked Fergus (Romann Berrux) which made Jamie lose it. Claire went to King Louis (Lionel Lingelser) for Jamie’s freedom. He made her pass judgment between Master Raymond and the Comte St. Germain (Dominique Pinon and Stanley Weber). She tried to save both of them, even though the Comte admitted to trying to poison her, but Master Raymond slipped real poison in and the Comte died. The King also made Claire have sex with him as payment, but freed Jamie and arranged for them to be able to go back to Scotland. Jamie returned home, and now they both will go home to Scotland together.

Claire ran into BlackJack Randall (Tobias Menzies) at Versailles, and they exchanged hostile pleasantries after the shock.

She a 1940s war nurse, happily married to her historian husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) on a trip to Scotland. There, some mysterious stones suck Claire into 1743, where she is almost captured by Black Jack Randall, Frank’s sinister distant relation, and is saved by Jamie Fraser, whom she nurses back to health.Claire must now learn a simpler way of life, plus marry Jamie for protection. They fall completely in love. Jamie saves Claire from being burned as a witch, and Claire rescues Jamie from rape and torture at Wentworth prison (although a bit late to prevent that) at the hands of Randall.

Starz Outlander Official Trailer

Pretty much 5 minutes after Starz announced the Outlander season 2 premiere date of April 9th, they released the official trailer to everyone. I know April 9th seems too far away to wait for our favorite time-crossed couple, the hunky James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser and his ethereal beautiful wife, Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe), but I know (as all Outlander fans do), that the season based on Dragonfly In Amber, Diana Galbadon’s second novel in the series is almost better than (if not as good as) the first.

Check out the official trailer below.

It is the season 1 finale of Outlander, the epic tale of Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) and James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser (Sam Heughan). Outlander, based on the Diana Galbadon series, really translated from the page to the screen, in ways that went beyond any expectations.

Sing me a song of a lass that is gone,
Say, could that lass be I
Merry of soul she sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye

Starz was really smart in grabbing this series. There’s tons more material, and these two leads are perfect. Do not continue if you have not watched the finale. There are spoilers!
