'Outlander' Season 5 Episode 6 promo shows an angry Claire returning her wedding ring to Jamie
The couple has had some fights in the past, but what could be prompt Jamie to ask Claire to give him Frank's ring? His demand makes her quite angry and she tells him that he can have his ring back too along with Frank's
Fans have been rattled by the latest promo released by Starz for the upcoming 'Outlander' episode, 'Better to Marry Than Burn'.
Episode 6 of this season will see the marriage of Jocasta and Duncan Innes, where Claire and Jamie are in attendance along with Governor Tryon.
But this is not the shocking part. We already had Jocasta tell Murtagh (after spending the night with him during Brianna's wedding celebrations) that Duncan Innes had proposed marriage.
She also told him that she was going to accept Innes' proposal unless Murtagh gave her a reason not to. Murtagh, preparing for the Regulators' revolt, couldn't stay and therefore let Jocasta go.
The shocking part of the promo comes towards the end with Claire angrily berating a confused Jamie for his demand that she handover Frank Randall's wedding band to him.
"If you're going to take this, then you might as well take both of them," she says, thrusting Frank's gold wedding band and Jamie's own silver one into Jamie's palm. Claire has never shied away from being a twice-married woman and Jamie is okay with this, knowing that Brianna was raised by Frank. So, Jamie suddenly turning jealous and asking for Frank's ring is not possible.
But the official synopsis of the episode also sheds a bit of light on this mystery. It states: "Claire discovers a lead on the whereabouts of a former enemy from an unexpected source, but the price for the information is far higher than she anticipates." Could the price of this information be her two wedding rings? Is Jamie using them as a bargaining chip to get this information? However, it is impossible that our favorite couple is breaking up, not when they were discussing having babies just two episodes ago.
The other important plot point in the trailer is Governor Tryon telling Jamie that though he "didn't want it to come to this, it seems we are going to have our war after all." He also looks rather stern so it is possible that Tryon suspects foul play around Lt. Knox's death. This is why he says, "They shall have mercy...if they choose it." The Regulators and Murtagh better watch out.
In Jamie and Claire’s absence, the crops at Fraser's Ridge are attacked by locusts. Roger and Brianna must save the Ridge from this threat as the residents look to Roger to provide the leadership to protect their crops from the "little devils". It's going to be interesting to see how Roger and Brianna face their first 18th-century crisis on their own.
'Outlander' airs each Sunday at 8/7c. Episodes are available on STARZ, the STARZ app, and STARZ On Demand.
