The new villain in “Outlander” season 4 is worse than Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies). At least, that’s what the show is aiming for. In a recent interview, the producers and cast member Sam Heughan (Jamie) teased details about what fans can expect on the show this year.

The new villain is the pirate Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers). In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Heughan teased details about this character, with the report itself saying that he might be worse than Black Jack.

“Think Black Jack was bad? Just wait until you see Bonnet,” the report reads.

Heughan admitted that it will be hard to top Black Jack, but the actor added that Speleers is committed to his goal of portraying an even more terrifying villain. “People are going to hate him,” Heughan said.

The pirate is charming, and with Speleers’ good looks, viewers may like him at first. However, the audience will get to understand what he’s really like when he does some “terrible things.”

"He's such a nice guy in real life but this is really dark. He's such a great baddie with charm yet danger and he's adorable,” Co-executive Producer Maril Davis said.

"Stephen Bonnet is a pure psychopath and a narcissist,” Co-executive Producer Matthew B. Roberts added, saying that the main focus of the villain is finding new things that give him pleasure. Roberts also teased that Stephen is like a chameleon who has the ability to act like anybody and fit into any situation.

How did Stephen Bonnet turn out the way he is? Executive Producer Toni Graphia explained that the character has been lucky for most of his life, and this luck has made him feel invincible.
