Season 2 of "Outlander" will premiere this Saturday, April 9 with the episode titled "Through a Glass, Darkly" that will see Jamie and Claire escaping their troubles in Scotland and making a fresh start in Paris.
Once there, the duo will strive to become a part of the French society and infiltrate the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart. However, the task of altering history will start to affect their relationship. The ordeal the pair suffered in the hands of Black Jack Randall will also hamper Jamie and Claire's bond.
The finale saw Jamie being brutally raped by Black Jack Randall and once he escapes the Highlander learns that his wife is pregnant. It is not immediately known if Black Jack Randall is alive after the events of the Season 1 finale, but he is very much present between Jamie and Claire.
"It's important to remember that Black Jack lives in this relationship whether or not he's alive in life," Caitriona Balfe told Indie Wire. "He's very much present; he's continuing to poison what they have, their intimacy."
"It affects the relationship," added Sam Heughan. "They lose contact with each other in a way, they have their own ways of dealing with it. Jamie and Claire are supportive, the thing that connects them is the new hope of the new life growing inside of her. Certainly that way they reconnect â€”and hash it out as well."
The second half of Season 2 will see Jamie and Claire return to Scotland and we'll also see Claire returning to 1945 and reuniting with her husband. However, Claire's journey into the past has forever altered their relationship and she will have to learn to live with a man who reminds her of Black Jack Randall.
"Outlander" returns Saturday, April 9 at 9 p.m. on Starz.
