Ultimately, the impending American Revolution may become a factor in Claire’s fate, as unrest in the Colonies becomes more apparent, the family moves from Fraser Ridge. But while Claire does know the outcome of that war, it’s “all those really important steps that lead to it that isn’t so obvious, which will be a lot more helpful to them,” Balfe said.
“I think it’s a really difficult situation they’re in,” said the actress. “I think Jamie bears the big brunt of that burden to decide where his loyalties are at any given time, because they know that at a certain point, they have to go against the crown. But at this current point, the crown is the one who rules the law and you have to please them and you have to appear loyal to the crown. So it’s really a delicate balancing act they’re trying to do.”
