Outlander's Sexy Wedding Night Has Arrived: Did It Live Up to Your Expectations?

Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan

The Outlander wedding — and wedding night — has arrived.

For fans of the book, Chapter 14 is the pivotal moment when Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) essentially begin their love story. Yes, we've seen their affection building, but until the moment Claire is forced into betrothal — as a loophole to Captain Jack Randall's orders — Claire is holding onto the hope that she'll return to Craig na Dun, slip back through time, and reunite with her husband Frank (Tobias Menzies). But nothing signifies the realization that this may never happen more than halfway through the episode when, as told through flashback, she slips off her wedding ring. Claire would later put it back on, with her new wedding ring on the other hand, in the final scene as she accepts her fate of being stuck between two worlds.

Outlander has reached one of many pivotal moments from the first book on which it's based, but even if you knew what was coming, Saturday's episode was still hard to watch.

The hour began with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Dougal (Graham McTavish) coming face-to-face with the Red Coats, and our leading lady assuring them that she had been with the MacKenzie clan willingly. Still, Claire had to convince another man of her motives: Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), the man who almost raped her when she first fell through the stones at Craigh na Dun.

Weekend Review: The Knick, Outlander

Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan

Cinemax, the scruffy bastard stepchild of HBO, is the perfect home for Steven Soderbergh's harrowing hospital melodrama The Knick (Friday, 10/9c), which depicts 1900s New York City as a vivid Dickensian nightmare. Though described by the series' severely flawed doctor hero John Thackery (a ravaged and mustachioed Clive Owen) as "a time of endless possibility," this Age of Progress has its limitations, with primitive ...

On the Set: Outlander Finally Comes to Life on Starz

Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe

Step onto the set of new Starz drama Outlander, deep in the countryside north of Glasgow, and it's easy to relate to series heroine Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married, English World War II combat nurse suddenly — and mysteriously — thrust back in time to strife-torn 1743 Scotland.

Kilt-clad men and corseted women mingle in the smoky candlelight. Two Irish wolfhounds loll by a massive, blackened fireplace as snippets of Gaelic drift through the stale castle air. And when director John Dahl yells, "Action!" Claire watches in horror as... read more
