When the flashback and flashforward format of “Outlander” season 3 was first announced, there was a lot of concern that fans won't get enough romance between Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe). However, the preview video of episode 5 reveals that the reunion is indeed happening. The long wait is finally over.

There will understandably be some drama before Claire decides to go back through the stones in the next episode. Brianna (Sophie Skelton) finally has her mother, but she has to let her go and let her be with the man she loves.

There’s a lot of anxiety about this decision because Claire may not be able to come back once she travels through time. Claire is worried. It has been 20 years. There’s a remote possibility that Jamie has changed, and that he may not love Claire like he used to. Despite the concerns, the Sassenach will take the plunge, mostly because of the encouragement she gets from her daughter.

After travelling back in time, Claire will be able to locate the print shop where Jamie was supposed to be working, according to her research. The preview video of next episode (see below) is told entirely from Claire’s perspective.

Viewers should note the significant time jumps on the show this year, especially in Jamie’s storyline. When Claire finally does reunite with the Highlander in the Print Shop scene, Jamie has already been through a lot.

Meeting Claire after so many years will certainly come as a shock for Jamie. But learning about the things he has been through, and the new baggage he carries, it will be equally shocking if not more for the Sassenach.
