Although Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) will be separated for 20 years in "Outlander" season 3, true love will bind them anew once they are reunited despite the difficult-to-ignore changes that happen to each of them.
"Outlander" season 3 is currently in the middle of production for its season 3, which is slated to premiere on Starz on April 1. However, since "Outlander" is based on Diana Gabaldon's series of books, with its third season lifted from the author's "Voyager," fans of the series who have already read the book know that the time-travelling sweethearts will be separated on the show's upcoming season.
As they are separated, Claire will live her life in her original timeline, the 1940s, be back with her original husband, Frank (Tobias Menzie), and give birth to her child with Jamie, Brianna.
"And you see a bit of Claire as a professional doctor, surgeon. It's just so different," Balfe said in a recent interview with The Wrap as she teased the fans of what they can expect as far as her character is concerned in "Outlander" season 3.
In the same interview, though, Balfe also talked about the much-anticipated reunion between Claire and Jamie, which, likewise, is already a known fact to fans who have already read "Voyager." A few months ago, it was already reported that the said scene had already been filmed, which Balfe affirmed recently.
"Of course, there will be a reunion. Which I think is really beautiful, and it's been filmed really beautifully. It's very interesting, it's like, how do two people come together after not seeing each other for 20 years, after both believing each other have died, and how do you build something real again?" Balfe revealed.
In an interview with Pop Sugar last November, Heughan said that Jamie and Claire's reunion will be special despite having been separated by time and the changes that each of the characters experienced. According to the actor, because of the characters' history, the two will still be reminded why they were attracted to each other in the first place.
"Time has passed, they've become different people, but they do have this great love for each other and this great bond. Ultimately that's their saving grace, and what brings them back together," Heughan said.
