Fans couldn’t wait to see Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) finally reunite on Season 3 of Outlander, but not everyone is excited about Claire’s return. New promo images for this week’s episode tease an unsteady reunion between Claire and Jenny (Laura Donnelly), who isn’t thrilled to see Claire in town. Why isn’t Jenny happy to reunite with her sister-in-law?
Entertainment Weekly released a few images for the upcoming episode, including a photo ofat Lallybroch. Claire and Jenny are pictured sitting on steps outside of Jamie’s estate, and Jenny isn’t happy about Claire’s presence.
After all, a lot has transpired since Claire left twenty years ago and it will take some time before Claire’s earns Jenny’s trust and respect.
Part of the reason why Jenny isn’t happy to see Claire is that she doesn’t understand why she left her brother twenty years ago. Jenny loves Jamie a lot and was forced to see him suffer from heartbreak after Claire left.
To make things worse, Jenny has been running Lallybroch on her own in Claire’s absence, and with the Redcoats constantly harassing them, life hasn’t been easy.
There’s also the fact that both women have changed considerably since they last saw each other twenty years ago. Jenny’s hesitancy and mistrust is understandable given her circumstances, and it will be interesting to see how long it takes for Claire to win her over.
Unfortunately, Claire has more to worry about than Jenny’s cold reception. According to Carter Matt, she is also dealing with the reality that. Outlander did not reveal the identity of Jamie’s wife in the promo trailer, but the clip made it clear that Claire knows about her.
To complicate things even more, Claire isn’t happy about Jamie keeping his wife a secret, especially after everything that happened during their steamy reunion. Exactly how Claire — and Jamie’s wife — react to the situation is anyone’s guess, but things aren’t looking good for Jamie.
The next episode of Outlander, titled “First Wife,” is scheduled to air Sunday night on Starz.
