"This is Dougal's plan to save Claire from having to go back into the hands of Black Jack, and you know, the very gallant James Fraser offers to marry her," added Balfe about the wedding.

It's also reported that Claire will wear a "to die for" wedding gown. Graham McTavish, who plays Dougal MacKenzie, told the website that the wedding gown is going to be breathtakingly beautiful, like an icing on the cake.

Meanwhile, Balfe and Heughan are creating waves with their alleged romance. The two share some passionate scenes on screen and this has led to rumours that they are dating in real life too. Balfe said in one her interviews that sex scenes were an integral part of the show as her character Claire has no qualms in being sexually active.

"I've filmed some sex scenes already but they're very integral to the storyline and they're not really gratuitous at all. Claire is a very sexually comfortable, sexually active woman and they show that. I think it's all in keeping with the story," said Balfe about her onscreen romance with Heughan, according to Nuke The Fridge.

"Outlander" Episode 7 airs Saturday, 20 September at 9 PM on Starz.
