Outlander, the new British-American television drama series based on Diana Gabaldon's international bestselling novels of the same name, will air its third episode tonight on US TV network Starz.

Outlander Season 1 Episode 3 is called 'The Way Out' and as the title suggests, the episode will show Claire discovering a way to escape Castle Leoch.

The official synopsis for 'The Way Out' reads:

"Claire decides to use her medical skills to aid her escape from Castle Leoch – with Jamie's help, she tends to an ill child. During an evening's entertainment, a story gives Claire hope for her freedom."

Starz released new clips from the upcoming episode that show Claire struggling to find her place and survive in the past by using skills she learned in the present.

The final video is called 'Pitiful'. Book fans should be especially pleased because the scene's dialogue is a fan favorite, according to Hypable.

"It's a nice bookend to the previous scene. Claire sees Dougal as a human being first who just so happens to have a medical affliction. She sees Jamie for who he is, not just a man who has been flogged, and whose wounds she has treated", states the report.

Outlander Season 1 Episode 3 airs on 23 August at 9pm ET (5pm GMT) on Starz.

Outlander Plot

Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened.

When she is forced to marry Jamie, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire's heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
