I’ve been waiting so long for this. Warning: contains spoilers.
This post contains spoilers for Outlander Season 3, Episode 5. Enjoy some naked Jamie with your warning:
There’s no doubt that Jamie saying goodbye to Claire and sending her and their unborn child back through the stones to her own time was one of the most heartbreaking scenes on Outlander.
And this show is chock FULL of heartbreaking scenes.
When the Season 2 finale ended with Claire finding out Jamie didn’t die at the Battle of Culloden as she’d believed for 20 years, it seemed we’d only (“only”) have to wait until the next season to see the two lovebirds reunited at last.

But Outlander had other plans, and the early episodes of Season 3 have explored Jamie and Claire’s separate lives over the course of 20 years.
There was some interesting stuff in there (ahem), but let’s face it, we’re all here for Jamie and Claire’s love. WE WANTED THE REUNION, DAMMIT.
And in Episode 5, we FINALLY got it. Kind of.
Claire arrives at the print shop where she’s discovered Jamie now works, and the pair first lay eyes on each other across the room. It’s beautiful and emotional, and a little too much for Jamie, who promptly faints.
AND THAT WAS IT. END OF EPISODE.
Even though it wasn’t much, it was enough to completely wreck fans.
And IT GETS EVEN BETTER. Because the trailer for the next episode promises everything we’re REALLY hoping for.
Yep. Jamie and Claire. Banging again at long last.
The trailer even seems to parallel scenes from “The Wedding” episode, which was basically an hour-long fuck-fest (i.e. AMAZING).
Here's to an epic sequel!
WE. ARE. READY.
