After the mega-cliffhanger that sent all us Outlander fans over the edge, we weren’t sure we’d be able to survive the long, long wait for the second half of season one’s return. After all, the first half of Outlander ended in September and we were told the back 8 episodes wouldn’t be hitting the world until April of 2015. Cruel and unusual punishment, if you ask me.
But lo! A light at the end of the dark and depressing tunnel: for April 4, 2015 is now only 4-ish months away! A hop, skip, and a jump through time away from coming back into our lives — and as a thank you Starz has released a dark and deadly looking trailer for the series second half.
For those of you who may not remember, a quick recap of what went down: at the end of the first half of season one, Claire had finally — finally! — made it to the standing stones on the hill of Craigh na Dun… in 1743. Only to be pulled away, captured by Black Jack Randall, when she was mere seconds away from being reunited with her husband Frank in 1945. So now she’s back at square one, and is going to have to attempt escape and/or rescue herself from that ol’ bloodthirsty scallywag.
Small though it may be, it still packs a metric tonnage of intrigue and curiosity about the forthcoming episodes. There’s Colum MacKenzie gettin’ straight ominous, some dead bodies, frenzied, town square ushering, and the all-important “I never planned on loving you!”-style declaration of Claire towards her new (second) husband, Jamie.
What do you think lies ahead for Claire and Jamie? Let’s hear your non-book-spoilery theories in the comments.
