Sneak Peek new footage, plus images from "Outlander" - Season 5, based on author Diana Gabaldon's historical time travel book series of the same name, specifically "The Fiery Cross", starring Caitriona Balfe as 'Claire Randall', who finds herself transported back to Scotland circa 1743 and Sam Heughan as 'Highland' warrior 'Jamie Fraser', premiering February 16, 2020 on STARZ:
"...previously, in Season 4, set in the Brit colony of North Carolina, 'Claire' and 'Jamie' work to find a way to return to Scotland with 'Fergus', 'Marsali' and 'Young Ian'.
"They visit the plantation of Jamie's aunt 'Jocasta Cameron', where they see conditions of enslaved African Americans firsthand.
"Claire and Jamie decide to leave the plantation area and make a new life for themselves elsewhere, and claim a piece of land they call 'Fraser's Ridge'. On their new land, tensions rise with the local 'Cherokee'. Jamie reunites with 'Murtagh', who is now a blacksmith in a nearby town and leader of the 'Regulator' movement.
"'Lord John' surprises Jamie and Claire by appearing on Fraser's Ridge with Jamie's natural son, 'Willy'. Meanwhile, in the 1970's, 'Brianna' rejects a marriage proposal from 'John'. After learning her parents will die in a fire, Brianna goes to 'Inverness' and travels through the stones.
"Roger is given a letter from Brianna stating she has gone through the stones, and he follows her. Brianna makes her way to the colonies, while Roger does the same on a ship captained by 'Stephen Bonnet'.
"Roger and Brianna meet in Wilmington, North Carolina and enter into a handfast marriage, but quarrel afterward. Brianna is attacked by Bonnet. Brianna finds her parents while in Wilmington, and later discovers she is pregnant. Roger goes to Fraser's Ridge.
"Jamie wrongly assumes Roger was the one who attacked Brianna and he beats him up. Then Young Ian sells Roger to the 'Mohawk' as a captive.
"Discovering their mistake, Claire, Jamie, and Young Ian set off to rescue Roger. He and Brianna are reunited at Jocasta's plantation. Now Jamie receives instructions from the governor to kill 'Murtagh', who is a wanted fugitive..."
"In Season 5, Jamie is clearly between a rock and a hard place, the rock being his signed oath to the 'Crown'...
"...to 'Governor Tryon', for the land that they live on, and his loyalty and his love for 'Murtagh'..."
