The key art depicts Caitriona Balfe as Claire, a married British combat nurse from 1945 who mysteriously goes back in time to 1743 Scotland.

Once there, she’s torn between her husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a Scottish warrior who comes to her rescue.

Outlander Quotes


Sing me a song, of a lass that is gone.
Say, could that lass be I?
Merry of soul she sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye.

Theme song to Outlander

Don't play the worm with me. Jamie, I just want this to be a pleasant experience for us both.

Randall
