Outlander Stars Warn That Paris Proves 'Poisonous' for the Frasers' Marriage in Season 2 — Watch Video

Outlander‘s Jamie Fraser may appear to be doing très bien at the start of Season 2, which premieres Saturday (Starz, 9/8c). Sassenach spoiler alert: He’s really, really not.

Sure, by fleeing to France the Frasers have put an ocean between themselves and Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall, the British soldier who violently violated Jamie at the end of Season 1. And yes, they’ve kept busy with their self-appointed mission: Stop the Jacobite uprising, and thereby prevent the deaths of thousands and preserve the existence of the Scottish clans.

But the aftermath of Jamie’s rape creates “a lot of distance” between Fraser and his wife, Caitriona Balfe tells TVLine, and for all of Claire’s healing prowess, she’s at a loss for how to help her husband.

Meanwhile, the pair must navigate several diplomatic — and dangerous — challenges among high society in the French capital.

“Paris is not a great place for their relationship,” Sam Heughan adds. “It’s a poisonous place.”

Press PLAY on the video above to watch Balfe and Heughan preview the season premiere, which airs Saturday (Starz, 9/8c).

    I find it interesting that she says Jamie doesn’t know how to vocalize what is going on with him because I felt his character in the book was very good at vocalizing that. (I’m specifically thinking about the tiny house analogy from book 1) One of the great things about their relationship is them being able to tell each other anything.

  2. Oooh God! We will cry so hard.

    I think she may be talking about the argument (spoiler alert) that occurs when Jamie wants to **** Randall and she is worried that it will affect her future husband. Also, there are severe consequences to the final decision Jamie makes.

    I love the series hate that they colored Scots hair red and not blonde!
