The first season of Outlander saw Claire Fraser (played by Caitriona Balfe) forced to adapt quickly to life in 18th Century Scotland after she travelled back in time during her honeymoon in Inverness with husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies). Fortunately, she had Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) by her side with the highlander marrying the medic to help protect her from British officers. But despite the pair embarking on a whirlwind romance, there some major lows for the couple, which included Jamie being tortured by long-time rival Black Jack Randall (also Tobias Menzies).
In episode six of the first series, Claire and Captain Randall play a game of cat and mouse with the time traveller trying desperately to protect Jamie.
When General Lord Thomas (John Hefernan) is presented with Claire by the red coats, he tells her Captain Randall will escort her to Inverness.
Suspicious of who Claire really is, Captain Randall interrogates her, demanding to know why an Englishwoman is in Scotland.
Claire concocts a story but is taken aback when Captain Randall tells her about his run in with Jamie which included flogging him publicly.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
