This is no chaste 18th-century moment.
Outlander fans have only just met Marsali on screen. Played by Lauren Lyle, she’s already shown she’s Laoghaire’s daughter, both in her passionate love for Fergus and disrespect for Claire. But you’ve got to admire her gutsy determination. Not only did she steal away on a ship to be with her beloved, but she’ll stop at nothing to make sure they secure Jamie’s blessing to get married—and her ingenuity gets him freed from his cell.
As for Fergus, he’s torn between the woman he loves and the only father figure he has ever known. In Sunday’s episode of Outlander, we saw him struggle with Jamie’s request to help him escape. Ordinarily, the former pickpocket would do anything Jamie asked. But now he has Marsali to consider, too, and he knows that if an escape attempt goes awry, it might prove fatal for all three of them.
That’s just when the two get caught up in a rather steamy moment. Following a passionate kiss, Marsali wants to go further, but Fergus eventually puts it all on ice. There’s probably much more where that came from; we spoke to Lyle and Domboy on set about their almost-climactic love scene and why their romance is more modern than your average 18th-century pairing.
