To Ransom a Man's Soul

Series 1 - Episode 16 To Ransom a Man's Soul



It’s the season finale, and we’re in a verra, verra dark place. Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) is lying naked in a prison cell, at the mercy of his nemesis, “Black Jack” Randall (Tobias Menzies), who isn’t satisfied with mere torture of the bonny Highlander. No, he wants his soul as well. And he’s got a horrid, insidious way of getting what he wants.

It’s a tough watch, but at the heart of Outlander is the love story between Jamie and Claire (Caitriona Balfe), the 20th-century nurse who found her soulmate in 18th-century Scotland. hey’ve gone through so much already – surely Jack can’t come between them now. Fans will be relieved to know the show will return to More4 next year.


A risky escape attempt is engineered to free Jamie and he is taken to a nearby monastery, where Claire tries to nurse his mind and body back to health. Sam Heughan stars in the time-travel drama, based on the historical adventure novels by Diana Gabaldon.
