Why This Season of ‘Outlander’ Will Be Its Best—Read: Most Romantic—Yet

The last season of Outlander saw Jamie and Claire tragically separated for twenty years, which feels like just about the same length of time we’ve all been waiting for new episodes. Truly, the Droughtlander has been painful, but it’s almost over, and judging from what I learned about the series’ fourth season at New York Comic-Con’s Outlander panel over the weekend, it’s going to be worth the wait.

Inside the buzzy, crowded Madison Square Garden in New York City, stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe joined series creator Ronald D. Moore to chat about the new season, which will find Jamie and Claire both physically and emotionally settled in a way we haven’t seen before.

“They’ve been through a lot,” said Heughan in what may be the understatement of the any decade. “Their relationship has really evolved, and at the core of it is this great love and understanding. They’re soulmates, and they’ve been fighting to be together, and finally in this season, they are. It’s what Jamie, certainly, has always yearned for.” Same, tbh.


Balfe added that having spent so many years apart, the pair have now overcome their “initial getting-to-know-each-other-again period.” “This season, there’s such a contentment with the two of them being together, and you see them building a life together, building this home together,” Bale said. “It’s a more settled, content place than we’ve ever got to before.”

Ugh, can you even?! Yeah, me neither. Let’s take a break and watch the trailer before we pass out.
