Claire and Jamie Fraser are trying to change the course of history, but the show has already shown that the Frasers will fail in their attempt. In the opening scene of season 2's premiere episode, Claire is back in the 20th century with Frank, and we learn that the Jacobites have been defeated by the British in the Culloden battle.
Season 2's finale episode is titled Dragonfly In Amber, which will inadvertently end with Claire in the 1940's, but how those events will play out is the twist. Actor Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie, has teased "climax" and "surprises" in the season 2 finale. He told IGN, "Ultimately the show has always been about relationships. Not only is that the climax of history, but it's also the climax of the relationships that are happening at the time. It's all doomed, and we can't stop history from happening," Heughan said of the upcoming finale.
"[Season 2] certainly has a climax. [Showrunner Ron Moore] has also got some surprises," the actor added.
