'Outlander' season 4 has so far been focusing on the plot around Jamie and Claire Fraser as they struggle to build a new life for themselves in colonial America. A sneak peek on the upcoming third installment shows that the episode titled 'The False Bride' will center around the 20th-century couple Brianna Fraser and Roger Mackenzie.

We first see Brianna and Roger reconnect at an airport and then the actors who play the characters decode the dynamics in a minute-and-a-half video. Sophie Skelton, who plays Brianna, and Richard Rankin, who plays Roger, candidly break down what to expect from their characters this season.



 

"Brianna is 23, 24 years old at this point and has a lot of affection toward Roger," Skelton says of her character.

"Roger is the one person who can understand what Bree's going through. She's still trying to get over the death of Frank, her father," adds Skelton.

However, Skelton, speaking from Brianna's perspective, chimes in about commitment. "There is that fear of ending up with somebody and then realizing that actually there's a whole new level of love out there that you didn't know about," she says on the backdrop of Brianna and Roger flirting, holding hands and kissing on screen.

Rankin says of Roger; "Roger is an assistant professor, one of the youngest ever at Oxford. I think what he's looking for is to be rooted in something. I think he's looking to ground himself."



 

"Roger puts absolutely everything on the line for Brianna," he adds. The teaser ends with Roger mysteriously telling Briana, "I have some news" over the phone. The exclusive teaser first appeared in Town&Country Mag.

'Outlander' airs on Sunday nights at 8 p.m. EST on Starz.
