These are the top 5 most shocking moments of season 2 that happened before the Outlander finale!
*Claire gives birth & loses the baby
If Caitriona Balfe doesn’t win the Emmy and Golden Globe for her stellar and devastating performance, then something is terribly wrong. Claire collapsed in a pool of her own blood after seeing Jamie and Jack Randall fighting. When she woke up, her baby was gone. Faith was dead. Claire nearly died after the birth, but Master Raymond saved her. Jamie was nowhere to be found, so Claire was forced to cope with the heartbreaking loss of her daughter on her own. She was able to hold Faith just for a moment, and she had beautiful red hair just like her father. Later, Jamie and Claire visited Faith’s grave to say their final goodbyes.
*Claire and Jamie fight over Jack Randall
Jamie was raped by Jack Randall in season one, and it nearly destroyed Jamie. After Jamie learned that Jack Randall was still alive, he was determined to kill him. Claire had to beg Jamie not to kill Jack, because if he did, Frank wouldn’t exist. Jamie was furious with Claire for asking that of him, but he just couldn’t refuse her.
*Jamie & Jack Randall fight
Jamie and Jack came face-to-face in their duel, and it ended in tragedy. Claire raced to the duel to make sure Jamie didn’t kill Jack, and suffered a miscarriage in the process. Jamie ended up stabbing Jack in the penis and was arrested. The look on Jamie’s face when he couldn’t help Claire was downright gut-wrenching.
*Claire travels back to the present
In the very first episode of season 2, Claire was back in the 1940s and pregnant. When she learned the British won the Battle of Culloden, Claire was devastated. After being hospitalized, Claire and Frank meet again. He took her to the Rev. Wakefield’s house, and Claire later told Frank what had happened to her. She admitted that she was pregnant, and Frank crumbled over the fact that the baby wasn’t his. However, he accepted the truth and stayed with Claire.
*Claire sleeps with the King to get Jamie out of prison
Claire had to sleep with the King of France in order to get Jamie out of prison again. She asked to meet with the king, and he was willing to help — but there was a catch. He wanted her to use her “witchy” skills to choose between Master Raymond and Comte St. Germain. After she helped the king out and St. Germain was dead, Claire and the king had sex for about 5 seconds. It was INSANE.
