Sam Heughan’s friendly sparring with Colin O’Donoghue – aka Once Upon A Time’s Captain Hook – has sailed into new, stormier waters.

In August this year, the Outlander star and RadioTimes.com’s Sci Fi Champion nearly lost out on his eventual glory when he had to battle O’Donoghue in the quarter finals.

But even when the going got tough, the pair provided plenty of online entertainment for their tireless fans, including Heughan challenging O’Donoghue to don a kilt, Outlander style…

And now it’s finally happened, with the Once Upon a Time star tweeting a video of himself in rather striking Scottish get-up. “Never let it be said I shy away from a challenge,” he says, twirling around to show just how truly committed he is to the challenge. 

But while Balfe’s admiration was (bagpipe) music to O’Donoghue’s ears, the comment did not go down well with Heughan, who felt betrayed by this praise for his sci-fi opponent. In fact, all this dressing up has resulted in a potentially acrimonious divorce in fictional 18th century Scotland…

If the Outlander clan thought they had problems before, now they’ve got serious drama to deal with…


UPDATE! 

Balfe may have redeemed herself in the (sad) eyes of Heughan by tweeting this…
