Last week on Outlander, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) found a purpose at last with help from Master Raymond (Dominique Pinon). She started volunteering at the charity hospital, proving her worth and knowledge to Mother Hildegarde (Frances de la Tour). Jamie (Sam Heughan) was none too happy, as he needed his wife to talk through the muck of intrigue in the court of Paris. Prince Charles (Andrew Gower) found his funding to Jamie’s distress. He hired a boy, Fergus (Romann Berrux), to steal correspondence so he could copy it and have the boy put it back. Claire realized that Frank (Tobias Menzies) was a descendent of Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day) and Black Jack. Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) told her she had to tell Jamie that Randall was still alive.

Last week on Outlander, Jamie and Claire (Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe) are now in France, where all sorts of weird things happened. Claire got to watch her friend Louise’s (Claire Sermonne) womanly parts get waxed, then tried it herself. Jamie gave Prince Charles Stuart (Andrew Gower) rebellion advice in a brothel. They traveled to the court of Louis XV (Lionel Lingelser), where Jamie and Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) were lucky enough to watch a constipated king on his chamberpot, and offer advice. Claire got her feet kissed by the Minister of Finance. The Duke of Sandringham (Simon Callow) showed up with Alex Randall (Laurence Dobiesz), BlackJack’s little brother in tow. What shenanigans will they get into next?

Outlander
Season 2 Episode 2: “Not In Scotland Anymore”
Directed by Metin Huseyin
Written by Ira Steven Behr
Created by Ronald D. Moore
Based on the books by Diana Galbadon
Starring Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Duncan Lacroix, Graham McTavish, Tobias Menzies, Grant O’Rourke, Stephen Walters, Robert Cavanah, Stanley Weber

Air Date: Saturday, April 16th, 2016, 9:00pm

Last week during the premiere of Outlander season 2, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) went back through the stones of Craig na Dun a few years later than she left – in 1948. Frank (Tobias Menzies) was thrilled to have her back, although that is dampened once she told him the whole crazy story, and that she is pregnant with Jamie’s child. He still wanted to be with her and raise the child as his own. The episode then transitioned to the Frasers arrival in France, and Claire mucking it up with her feminism, which Jamie (Sam Heughan) treasures. She declared a member of a ship’s crew dying of smallpox, which made a rich and angry Comte’s ship have to burn. He vowed revenge. Jamie’s cousin Jared (Robert Cavanah) left Jamie his house and business to run while he went away. The Frasers are planning to stop the Jacobite rebellion, thus stopping the massacre at Culloden.

Last season on Outlander, we were introduced to the time traveling epic love story of Jamie and Claire Fraser (Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe). She a 1940s war nurse, happily married to her historian husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) on a trip to Scotland. There, some mysterious stones suck Claire into 1743, where she is almost captured by Black Jack Randall, Frank’s sinister distant relation, and is saved by Jamie Fraser, whom she nurses back to health.Claire must now learn a simpler way of life, plus marry Jamie for protection. They fall completely in love. Jamie saves Claire from being burned as a witch, and Claire rescues Jamie from rape and torture at Wentworth prison (although a bit late to prevent that) at the hands of Randall. Wanted, they set sail for new beginnings (and to prevent Culloden), soon to be a family of three.

Starz Outlander Official Trailer

Pretty much 5 minutes after Starz announced the Outlander season 2 premiere date of April 9th, they released the official trailer to everyone. I know April 9th seems too far away to wait for our favorite time-crossed couple, the hunky James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser and his ethereal beautiful wife, Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe), but I know (as all Outlander fans do), that the season based on Dragonfly In Amber, Diana Galbadon’s second novel in the series is almost better than (if not as good as) the first.

Check out the official trailer below.
