Previously leaked pictures from the production set showed a pregnant Claire (Caitriona Balfe) with her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies). The scene is expected to be a flashback, since the last time viewers saw Claire she was an older woman preparing to walk through the magical stones of Craigh Na Dun, and be reunited with the love of her life.

The emotional reunion of Claire and Jamie is one of the most highly anticipated events in “Outlander” Season 3. A new set of characters will be introduced on the show this time around. John Bell (Young Ian) and Wil Johnson (Joe Abernathy) were among the first to be cast.
