‘Outlander’ Stars Weigh in on Jamie’s Shocking Discovery, Claire’s “Dangerous” Foe
Jamie now knows that Bonnie Prince Charles (Andrew Gower) has more funds than he originally thought thanks to the Duke of Sandringham funding both sides of the rebellion, and that’s the first lead he’s gotten since he arrived in France. How will that change his mission to sabotage the rebellion going forward?
Sam Heughan: He does have a sizable amount of money, but it’s not enough to fund a whole war. It’s certainly showing him that he’s gathering support. But the biggest point is Sandringham coming back into the run of things. We start to see that he’s more of a power player and a bigger character in their whole fate, in Jamie and Claire’s whole life, and he certainly will, later on in the series, become very pivotal to the whole thing. He’s certainly a figure that should not be trusted.
Regardless of the fact that Sandringham can tell Jamie about Black Jack’s fate, Claire still decides not to tell Jamie that Black Jack is still alive. Why did Claire decide not to come clean, even though there’s a ticking clock on that secret coming out?
Caitriona Balfe: I think she’s scared that he will do something rash. She’s just not ready to see him fall backwards. You see him, there’s this moment of hope, they’re finally getting somewhere, and she feels that if she told him, it would just send him into a spin, into a spiral. She just doesn’t know how he’ll react.
