‘Outlander’: 1 Way Claire and Jamie’s Sex Life Will Be Different in Season 4

We have to wait a little while longer for the addictive show, Outlander, to return. But the good news is that the producers and actors are starting to reveal more about Season 4. The show is changing due to the new time period and location it is taking place.

But the relationships between the characters are changing as well. Caitriona Balfe and Sam Hueghan talk about Claire and Jamie’s life together in the new season. Here are seven things to know — including how their sex life will be different in Season 4.

1. The show will introduce American history

The couple isn’t in Scotland anymore. This new season will take place in America, so there will be changes — but the show won’t leave its British roots completely behind.

It does not look quite the same, and obviously we don’t have the oppressive mugginess you’d find in North Carolina. And while most people think everything should be Americanized at that time, there was quite the British hold on the area,” executive producer Maril Davis said according to Variety.

So what does that mean? “There’s slavery, there’s American Indians, there’s a rebellion brewing up in New England that will become the American Revolution. And they land right smack dab in the middle of all this,” explained Ronald D. Moore.

Although we are getting these changes, there is another character’s storyline that will bring us to the past.

Next: This is what the couple’s daughter is up to next season.

2. Brianna will time travel

The couple’s daughter will be time traveling next season, and Claire isn’t happy about it.

“The only reason she wouldn’t want Brianna to come through is because it’s obviously a dangerous time, and I think you’d want your daughter probably to stay in a time where it’s not quite as dangerous,” explained executive producer Maril Davis.

Next: These two characters will reunite next season.

3. Brianna and Jamie reunite

There will also be a reunion between Brianna and Jaime.

I’m going back tomorrow to shoot that scene. I just got the scripts two days ago, and we start shooting this week. This season, it’s a huge moment and will be the catalyst to a lot of the drama that unfolds,” Heughan said according to Variety.

Next: This is what Claire and Jamie’s life is like next season.

4. Claire and Jamie will be in domestic bliss

The couple will be more settled down next season, according to Balfe.

“We finally actually get to see them in some sort of state of domestic bliss,” she said according to Elle. “Finally, they’re not being ripped from home or made to travel across oceans. They actually settle, and it’s a different dynamic, and it’s nice to explore that. Like, what is this relationship when it’s normal? Because we haven’t really had that.”

Next: This is how their sex life will change.

5. Sam Heughan reveals the couple may be less energetic now that they’re older

It sounds like the passion will simmer down for the next season. Sam Heughan said this is because the couple is getting older, according to Cinema Blend.

It’s a very important part of their relationship. They’re slightly older, so maybe it’s less energetic, who knows? But they are madly in love with each other. They’re older now, and it’s the first time we actually get to see them as this couple that actually can be together and not be in some sort of dire drama. Up until now, there’s always been something going on. It’s nice, for a brief moment, to see them be able to relax in each other’s company, though of course it’s Outlander, so it doesn’t last long.

Next: These two characters will return next season.

6. Frank and Laoghaire might return

Some other characters who might return are Frank and Laoghaire. “The fans love to hate her. That just means you want to see her more,” Ronald D. Moore said referring to Laoghaire.

Next: However, this character won’t be coming back.

7. Black Jack Randall won’t be returning

Although some other characters are returning, one person won’t and that is Black Jack Randall. We will have to see what Frank does without him.
