Starz gave Outlander fans their first look at Season Three (aka “Book Three”) before The White Princess premiere last night and it looks fantastic. You know, if you’re into Sam Heughan’s Jamie Fraser earnestly monologuing about how much he loves Claire — WHICH I VERY MUCH AM.
The teaser suggests that Book Three will give us way more time jumps than just the one Claire takes back through the Stones. That is, we’ll see Jamie at the Battle of Culloden and its aftermath in the 1740s and we’ll watch Claire raise Brianna through her teen years. We get flashes of Claire (seated with Frank) sporting the most fetching late ’50s bob and wearing full medical scrubs. Meanwhile, Jamie must contend with battles, hallway shootouts, and literal ruins.
However, what got me swooning the most? The way Jamie Fraser totally invokes the spirit of one of my favorite movie moments of all time (Hawkeye roaring “I will find you!” in Michael Mann’s The Last of the Mohicans, natch) and proclaims that he will find Claire. Here’s Jamie’s entire monologue:

“I have lied, killed, and broken trust. But when I stand before God, I’ll have one thing to say to weigh against all the rest. Lord, you gave me a rare woman. God, I loved her well. I’ll find you. (Claire!) I promise.”
Outlander Season Three will debut on Starz this September.
