New Outlander teasers show Claire struggling to find her place and survive in the past by using skills she learned in the present.
The next episode is called, “The Way Out.” According to the Starz official synopsis, “Claire decides to use her medical skills to aid her escape from Castle Leoch – with Jamie’s help, she tends to an ill child. During an evening’s entertainment, a story gives Claire hope for her freedom.”
In the first clip, “Stubbornness,” viewers get to see that Claire had plenty of backbone before being thrown into the the past in Scotland. In the scene below, Claire is seen with her husband, Frank, in a flashback set during World War II. Claire, who we know from the first episode was an army nurse, is being sent to the front, and wants no special consideration. Frank, who was in special operations, clearly wanted to pull strings to protect his wife, but Claire was having none of it.
In this next clip, called “One of a Kind Man,” Colum MacKenzie tells a new tailor that he is not embarrassed by the appearance of his bowed legs. He lets the tailor know in no uncertain terms that no special treatment is required, and that he is a man to be contended with. He is a man of both action and words.
The final video is called “Pitiful.” Book fans should be especially pleased because the scene’s dialogue is a fan favorite. It’s a nice bookend to the previous scene. Claire sees Dougal as a human being first who just so happens to have a medical affliction. She sees Jamie for who he is, not just a man who has been flogged, and whose wounds she has treated.
Starz has also released the information for the fourth episode, which will air on Saturday, August 30. Again, fans will be happy to know that it is called “The Gathering.” The official synopsis reads, “As the Castle prepares for The Gathering, Claire plots her escape. But after a dangerous encounter with a drunken Dougal and an unexpected run-in with Jamie, her plans are dashed.”
Don’t forget to watch Outlander this Saturday at 9:00 ET/PT on Starz.
