“Outlander” Season 1 is never going to get easier for Claire. After her trauma of being sent back in time in episode 1, viewers will recall that she almost immediately met a man who looked just like her sweet husband, Frank. However, he wasn’t Frank but rather Frank’s ancestor, Capt. “Black Jack” Randall. The man tried to rape her as soon as he saw Claire walking alone in the woods. She was lucky to escape, but she hasn’t seen the last of him.
The next time Claire finds a way to leave Castle Leoch, she’ll run into her attempted rapist once again, as well as a few other Redcoats, according to TV Guide. Apparently, Randall isn’t happy that he couldn’t finish what he started. He’ll have an encounter with Claire that will make her stomach churn. The captain is anything but honorable, and he’ll make that abundantly clear with this disgusting and perverse confrontation. Fans hope that Randall will use his words to convey his warped mind, but he seems like a man of action. He might try to hurt Claire, and Jamie might not be there to save her.
The promo for episode 4 shows Claire escaping Castle Leoch, so the Black Jack Randall confrontation could come as soon as Saturday. Watch the promo below:
