In an interview with Gold Derby, Outlander star Heughan reflected on what Outlander fans could see next from the couple.

The star explained: “The whole time through the ordeal, the only person she wants is Jamie. He’s there.

“He’s hopefully going to be able to fix this and he’s never fully realised in her fantasy until he’s there in person. It’s almost like she conjures him.”

The star went on to say: “Obviously, there’s a lot of similarities between what happens to Jamie in season one and Claire at the end of this season and I think they have each other.

“However, they are fractured, they’re broken, they’re a family and they’re facing this future together, but the cracks are definitely there.”

On Claire’s journey, Heughan said: “I would say, absolutely in no way is she healed but she’s on that journey towards finding some sort of resolve in this whole situation.

“That’s what makes it’s so interesting and so fantastic is that these characters are broken in various ways and they’re facing this unknown future together. But they are together and are family.”

From his words, it’s clear Claire has a long road ahead of her in season six when the show returns.
