Thrilled to be able to report some actual good news for once, which is that Claire Randall Fraser and James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser will be reuniting on Starz on October 22 in an episode that will last a precious 74 minutes. Finally!!!!


Deadline reports that after several episodes packed with longing and misery, both the Frasers and the audience are finally getting back to the good stuff: “After decades apart, Jamie and Claire finally reunite and rekindle their emotional and physical bonds. But Jamie’s new business dealings jeopardize the couples’ hopes for a simple life together.” Picture’s worth a thousand words, though:


The outlet added that, “The network said it will air the first five episodes of the current season as a marathon ahead of Episode 6, is set for 8 PM that Sunday,” in case you were looking for a great way to spend an afternoon in your sweatpants on the couch.

Some steamy promo to tide you over til October 22:

So, I introduced this show to my parents in the first season because I thought it would totally be their thing, and guess what? It was! Which is great, I love when I give successful recommendations.

But then last year I moved back in with them and when this season started, they started to be like, “Oh, Lucie likes Outlander, let’s all watch Outlander together.”

And guys, watching soft core porn with your parents is really awkward. I’m looking forward to this episode while at the same time dreading watching it with them.
