Another season of “Outlander” will end soon. What does the show have left in store for viewers? Should fans really expect a death in the finale?
The show’s executive producer Maril Davis recently sat down with Access Hollywood to talk about the last episode of Season 2. “It’s so emotional…It’s so heartbreaking,” she teased. “I cried like three times [watching it]. The music is wonderful. The writing is amazing… Get your tissues and your whiskey ’cause you’re going to need it.”
Why does Davis think alcohol is in order for the finale? Could there be a “heartbreaking” death on the horizon? Claire and Jamie will find themselves caught in the middle of Battle of Culloden next week. Could Jamie possibly die because of it?
Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie, chose to keep mum about his character’s fate. However, according to the International Business Times, the actor did describe the last episode as “very, very emotional and critical.”
In a separate interview, his co-star, Caitriona Balfe, meanwhile confirmed that Jamie and Claire will end up parting ways next season. However, the actress believes the couple would probably find their way back to each other eventually.
“I think that they’re soul mates,” Balfe told Los Angeles Times. “We are going to see them apart again and we are going to see how that affects them each individually. That’s something I’m really looking forward to in season 3… [But] they are meant to be together. ”
Balfe thinks they will start from scratch when they do get together again. “They’re going to have to get know each other again, relearn how to love each other and accept each other for the people they now are because they will be very different,” she explained.
Just how “heartbreaking” would things end up for Claire and Jamie in the season’s last moments? Will their upcoming separation really be the only thing that causes them pain in the end? Or will Jamie really die soon? Fans just might have to tune in next week to find out.
The second season finale of “Outlander” will air on Starz network this July 9.
