By Leanne Aguilera
Je suis prest… for season two of Outlander!
Listen up, lads and lasses -- The highly anticipated return of our beloved time-traveling drama is almost here, and we've got something to help quench your Fraser thirst during this Droughtlander.
Entertainment Tonight teamed up with Starz to bring you a series of four exclusive videos starring Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan, and they're guaranteed to put smiles on your sweet little Sassenach faces.
First up, we're gifting you with the ultimate season two preview that is jam-packed with brand-new scoop and never-before-seen footage!
"It feels more complex in a way," Heughan prefaces the show's sophomore season. "These relationships have developed and our relationship has certainly gone into a new place."
Speaking of new places, when we last saw our couple, the Frasers were embarking on a new journey together to Paris, but there will most definitely be rough waters ahead.
"I don’t think it's ever going to be smooth sailing with these two," Balfe admits with a laugh. "We're going to meet some very interesting characters who may become the new enemies of Claire and Jamie -- one being the Count of St. Germain."
Heughan adds, "It doesn’t take long before Claire gets them all in trouble."
After Jamie's horrific encounter with Black Jack Randall in the season one finale, the stars reveal that the couple's bond will be strengthened thanks to a newfound sense of purpose and a "wonderful new life" that Claire is carrying.
"Claire's focus is to really sort of help him get over that trauma by trying to inspire him and give him this mission of trying to change history," Balfe spills. "And Claire is very much his champion in a sense."
The brunette beauty continues, "There's this massive undertaking that they've set out to do, and it's not always pretty, but they feel like they're working for the greater good."
Despite being in an "alien world" together, Heughan confesses that the laird and his lady blend "quite well" into the Parisian culture.
"They fit in pretty quickly," the Scotland native says. "When they come back to their private lodgings, they discuss what has been happening. It's interesting to see how they both quickly adapt and learn to deceive other people."
A large part of their deception will be to look the part of a Parisian, which means goodbye wool dresses and hello gorgeous gowns. (For both of them, apparently!)
"They scrub up pretty well, I think," Balfe reveals with a smile. "I think visually this year it is a lot of color, a lot of sumptuous silks and satins. We will even see Sam in some beautiful satins and embroidery." To which Heughan added with a smirk, "Beautiful dresses, yes!"
Regardless of what our characters wear, it's clear that season two of Outlander is not going to disappoint. "It's going to be a very different journey and very surprising," Heughan concludes.
