Jamie and Claire Fraser story detail CHANGED on #Outlander - here's why

Claire (played by Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) have had an incredibly tumultuous relationship throughout the course of Outlander.

They’ve been split up, threatened, left for dead, faced the monumental Battle of Culloden between the Jacobites and the British soldiers and Claire time-travelled back through the Stones and left her husband for 20 years.

Despite a myriad of obstacles in their way, the couple are now stronger than ever on the series and Jamie and Claire have settled down to build a family home at Frasers’ Ridge in North Carolina.

Now with their daughter Brianna Randall Fraser (Sophie Skelton) and first grandchild, it seems the Frasers are set for happiness for the time being on the Amazon Prime Video series.

Often these changes take place because producers are forced to translate certain aspects of the story to a completely different medium, and as a result some minor details have to be left out.

Other small moments seem much more important to long-time fans, so the show’s bosses are always going to disappoint some viewers.

One such pivotal change occurred withe the absence of Claire and Jamie getting matching tattoos on the corner of their hands.

The decision was a poignant moment in the original novels as the couple used another method to solidify their love for each other.

But unfortunately this was omitted from the series and wasn’t shown on screen.
