The reunion of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) was a joyous occasion in “Outlander” season 3, which proved that their love has stood the test of time. However, new problems have already started. In a recent interview, co-executive producer and writer Matthew B. Roberts talked about the thought process behind the Print Shop scene and also teased details about what can be expected moving forward.

In an interview with Sony, Roberts said the Print Shop scene was something everyone had been waiting for, even the producers. The writers tried to stay as close to the source material as possible, knowing the importance the fans placed on it, but there were some “unique challenges” that they faced.

The strategy used was to let scenes of the episode play out in a natural manner, instead of forcing the script to fit a predetermined runtime. There were a range of emotions that Heughan and Balfe had to portray during the reunion. There was surprise, fear, anxiety, unease, delight and passion.

Although it has been twenty years, the writers decided not to focus on Claire readjusting to life in the 1700s. The main focus was the reunion. However, she will have to adjust to Jamie’s new life, which now includes a grown up Ian (John Bell) and Fergus (César Domboy).

The end of episode 6 showed Claire facing a new problem. What is this new problem? Roberts teased that “the past has a strange way of catching up with the present.” The producer added that some decisions that Jamie took in Claire’s absence will put pressure on them both.

“Outlander” season 3 episode 7 is titled “Crème de Menthe.” According to the synopsis, Claire will follow her conscience and use her skills as a surgeon, while Jamie tries to evade the Crown’s representatives who are closing in on his illegal dealings.
