Caitriona Balfe: Claire and Jamie's Outlander Reunion Will Be "Very Fraught"

It's complicated.

It's finally back on for the time travel-afflicted lovers in Outlander season three. Viewers were devastated when Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) were left facing 20 years apart in the season two finale. But luckily, the couple are set to find each other again in a "very heartwarming, very tender" reunion, Balfe told ELLE.com at the pre-Golden Globes BAFTA tea in Los Angeles.

"You can't keep these two apart, really," she said. "We do spend some time on what both of the characters go through when they're separated. We see a lot of Jamie's life in those 20 years, and we see some of Claire's. My story picks up where we left at the end of episode one, season two. So you'll see definitely some Tobias Menzies, which is never a bad thing, I would say."

But like in all long-distance relationships (time travel counts, right?), things are not exactly straightforward for Claire and Jamie.

"It's also very fraught," Balfe said, "because I think anyone who's spent any time apart from someone that they love, even if it's just a long-distance relationship, once you see each other again, you have all the expectations, and you have all of the things that you think you'll say, and the way you think it'll go. Life's never like that. I love that it's kind of complicated."

But will it get steamy between the historical sheets?

"It might be a little bit. I'm not a good objective judge of how steamy it is."

Having battled her way through literally several eras of chauvinism, what would Claire think if she landed in our present-day political situation?

"I think she would just want women especially, and everyone, to stand up for what you believe in," Balfe said. "Don't take no for an answer, and continue to fight the good fight, which I think we all should do."
