Outlander‘s Claire Fraser doesn’t do things in half measures, does she?
When Lady Broch Tuarach runs afoul of local merchant Le Comte St. Germain in the Starz drama’s season premiere, she “inadvertently gets his ship destroyed,” star Caitriona Balfe succinctly puts it in this new video. And because the aforementioned businessman is a powerful and influential member of French society (who, we’ll soon learn, happens to dabble in the dark arts), that makes the Frasers’ new life as wine sellers/war preventers even more complicated than it already is.
This Saturday’s installment, “Not in Scotland Anymore,” finds Jamie struggling to get past the memories of his rape as he and Claire settle in Paris. Meanwhile, we meet Jacobite leader Prince Charles, and the Duke of Sandringham reappears. (It’s also the episode featuring Balfe in that red dress, so prepare to be wowed.)
Press PLAY on the clip above to hear Balfe and co-star Sam Heughan joke about Claire’s “big mouth” and preview what effect St. Germain will have on their life in the City of Lights. Then hit the comments with your thoughts on the smooth new baddie.
