Once she travels through the stones, back to her life in 1948, she has a lot to work out. Now expecting Jamie’s baby, Claire must deal with her first husband, Frank (Menzies), and his reaction to her disappearance and return. Meanwhile, back in time, Jamie struggles with the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the Battle of Culloden, as well as the loss his soul mate.

I love Outlander. It is my favorite show. I have watched it since it premiered. I have faithfully continued my Startz subscriptions to show support for this program. I also enjoy The Power.

This is what keeps me with Starz – an outstanding Company that is not… Read more »
