On March 3, Outlander leads Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan traveled to Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, Washington, their first fan convention since 2015.
The panel, moderated by Clare Kramer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) spent most of its hour taking fan questions, and we learned some pretty interesting things about the stars before they jetted off to finish shooting S3 in South Africa.

Five Biggest Highlights from the panel:
Where Claire and Jamie’s Heads Are in S3
At the end of S2, Claire had thrown herself back into the twentieth century as Jamie grimly faced the Battle of Culloden. When Season 3 resumes, the two will have lived decades without each other. As we know from Season 2 flash-forwards, Claire returns to Frank (Tobias Menzies) in this time to raise her and Jamie’s daughter.
Claire believes Jamie has died, so there aren’t really any options.
I think she does what any mother would do. She tries to survive.
You see how these two people had to live without each other, and I think that’s a really important part of who they’ve become.

If people have read the book, they know that it picks up where [Season 2] left off, so we do get to see Jamie’s journey without Claire. Basically, Jamie’s not himself. He’s being anyone but Jamie Fraser, so it’s about his journey back to Jamie Fraser.
