Outlander: 10 Burning Questions We Have for Season 3

Is. Black. Jack. Dead?!

Megan Vick

[Warning: The following contains spoilers from the Season 2 finale of Outlander. Read at your own risk!]

We've had some time to process all of the major events from the OutlanderSeason 2 finale -- including meeting Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire's (Caitriona Balfe) now adult daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin), and finding out that Jamie didn't die at the Battle of Culloden.

The 90-minute episode concluded with Claire saying they must go back through the stones, to the 18th century, to find Jamie. We are all on board for that plan, but we also have some burning questions for what Claire will find when she makes it there.

Outlander EPs break down the Season 2 finale twists

1. Did Black Jack Randall die? Claire stomached the guilt of marrying Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day) to Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) with the hope that Randall would die at Culloden Moor. Since we never got to see the battle, we don't know if that came to fruition, so we need that to come to fruition.

2. Who died instead of Jamie in the shed? Roger informs Claire that five Scottish officers were found hiding in a church shed and executed, but Jamie was able to escape. Who were the other four who died instead? Was it anyone we knew?

3. Was Jamie able to return to Lollybroch? If Jamie escaped execution, he was still a wanted man. Was he able to return to his childhood home or has he spent the last 20 years on the run?

4. Has Jamie gotten married in the 20 years since Claire left? Claire stayed married to Frank for two decades. If Jamie thought that Claire would never make it back to him, under the assumption that he was dead, would he have found someone else to spend the rest of his life with?

5. Did Fergus stay in Scotland? We know that Fergus (Roman Berrux) made it back to Lollybroch with the deed that gives the property to Jenny's (Laura Donnelly) son. Did Fergus stay on the farm or return to France though?

6. Did Murtagh survive as well? Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) swore that if Jamie died at Culloden, he would too. Since Jamie survived, was his best friend able to escape as well?

7. Will Brianna and Roger go back to the past with Claire? Claire has no hesitation about going back through the stones, but that doesn't mean Brianna and Roger are itching to go back in time 200 years.

8. Will going through the stones bring them to 1768 or back to 1748? Let's assume Brianna and Roger do agree to go on the trip -- where will the stones take them? Geillis (Lotte Verbeek) went through the stones in 1968 and ended up in the 1740s. If they go through, will Claire also go back to the 1740s like she did the first time and have to re-meet Jamie all over again? Or will the stones take them to 1768 so that Jamie has aged 20 years, just like Claire?

9. How is Brianna going to react to seeing Jamie for the first time? Brianna is obviously curious about her past and who her biological father is. We have to hope they'll get to meet next season, but how will she react when she meets him for the first time?

10. When do we get more Outlander? The most important question is when can we expect to get these answers. Executive producer Matt Roberts has already said Season 3 will come "sooner than we think," but that's still not soon enough.
