Love at first sight?
When Claire (Caitriona Balfe) first set foot in 18th-century Scotland onOutlander, she wasn't looking for a relationship.
Still, she almost immediately felt a connection with Jamie (Sam Heughan), as can be seen in the exclusive clip above from the Collector's Edition ofOutlander: Season 1 – Volume 2.
"When Claire first meets Jamie, the initial bond of patient and nurse is something that she can relate to," says Balfe in the clip.
Adds showrunner Ronald D. Moore: "She's not here to have any kind of relationship with anybody, much less this young man. But nonetheless, there is a spark between the two of them."
As they get to know each other, Claire finds herself more and more attracted to Jamie, despite having her own husband in the 20th century.
"Even though he's a man of that time, there is something timeless about him and there's something modern – his willingness to change his viewpoint or learn or be open to new ideas."
