Much to my surprise, Starz’s Outlander quickly became one of my favorite shows on television soon after it premiered back in August, and many of its Season 1 episodes, including “The Wedding,” of course, and the intense and suspenseful midseason finale, made me fall in love with the show even more. Unfortunately, we’ve still got four months to go until Outlander returns to Starz in April. However, the network has given us a bit of an early Christmas gift in the form of a 20 second-long teaser trailer, featuring all new footage from upcoming episodes, and one piece of dialogue in particular is going to make fans of Jamie and Claire go pretty crazy.
It’s hard to really detail everything that’s happening in the video below, but it goes without saying how intense it all is, from Colum’s warning to Dougal that “one day” he will “talk your head off your shoulders right onto a pike” to Claire being tied up and led to who knows where. Not to mention, did we just see Jamie get stabbed, and is he the one lying bloodied on the ground?
But the biggest moment by far is a line spoken from Claire to Jamie. Worried and and tearful, she tells him, “I never counted on loving you.” Does this declaration of love come after she has told him who she really is? Perhaps Claire finally tells Jamie that Frank is still alive or that she is from a different time. We can’t be sure. (Well, book-readers can be, but let’s keep the comments spoiler-free for those who haven’t gotten around to the novels just yet.)
Check out the Outlander trailer for yourself below. Let us know what you think will happen in the back half of the show’s first season and if you’re excited for what’s to come.
Outlander returns on Saturday, April 4, 2015, at 9 p.m. on Starz.
