I still need to write up our Outlander premiere party recap but let’s just drink this clip from Episode 201 in for a second….
First we have Claire, visibly upset and Jamie not being able to bear her pain. Even with the awkward one armed hug, you just want to MELT into him. The back scars are there for the audience to see, and yet this tenderness just pours out of him. Obviously Claire feels a “moment” coming on, pulls back and he tells her she doesn’t have to be “scairt” with him around, to which she wisely responds what about all those other times?! I NEED MORE. Such a wonderfully precious moment between them.
The way that Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan embody these characters continues to blow me away. And we’ve only scratched the surface of this show!
