  • Outlander season 5: Claire and Jamie Fraser drama dealt crushing blow

In the promo, Claire is incandescent with rage at Jamie as they have a heated discussion.

While it’s not clear what Jamie has said to provoke such a reaction from his beloved Sassanach, it’s most likely to be the Highlander confirming he’s going to be heading into battle.

“Have you lost your mind?” Claire hisses at Jamie, as he responds: “What do you mean?”

She’s on the verge of tears as she hands him her two wedding rings and says: “Well, if you’re going to take this, they you might as well take both of them.”

This is the most turbulent things have been between them and given the pair have endured a 20-year separation, this signals how bad their relationship is.

Jamie’s decision to go to war is likely to stir up memories of World War II for Claire, which saw the nurse separated from her first husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies).

She will once again be faced with losing the man she loves and his possible death after being reunited with him.

From previous trailers, fans know Jamie will be donning a redcoat as he fights for the British crown despite his reservations.

Jamie could be killed in season five as he’s forced to engage in a conflict he doesn’t even believe in.

The cast has previously stated Outlander is going to have some big moments for the couple but the formerly rock-solid duo are on shaky ground.

This could be the thing to really tear Jamie and Claire apart as they are being pulled in different directions by the American Revolution.

The trailer also features a discussion between Jamie and Governor Tryon (Tim Downie), who tells the Highlander: “I had hoped it wouldn’t come to this but it seems we’re going to have our war after all.”

The scene cuts to Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton), who notices her pet cat has come into the house with a dead cricket: “Adso has brought us a gift!”

“I hope it’s not a gift from the gods,” Roger replies to her as they look out the window and see locusts swarming around.

Not long after, disgruntled farmers turn up at Fraser’s Ridge with one man telling Roger: “The crop will be crawling with the devils if we wait any longer. So what is it you propose we do?”

Roger looks out as the insects swarm in the sky, appearing to obscure the clouds in what looks like a biblical plague.
