Outlander: 5 Times Claire Was Our Hero!

Caitriona Balfe as Claire Fraser from

Outlander may be on a break, plunging fans into yet another Droughtlander, but there’s always a reason to celebrate the stars and characters of the Starz hit, especially when it comes to Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe). Below, TV Insider is breaking down some of the moments she was a hero throughout the show’s run (so far)!

Outlander: 5 Times Claire Was Our Hero!

Claire Keeps Things Stylish

Despite the restrictive nature of women’s style in the 18th century, Claire doesn’t let that stop her from rocking a revealing red dress to Versailles. Her commitment to the look is proof that you should wear what you want, and we love her for that!

Claire Does the Right Thing (Even When It Hurts)

Goodness knows most wouldn’t be strong enough to leave their love behind, but Claire does just that in the Season 2 finale as the Battle of Culloden approaches. Bidding Jamie farewell in a teary exchange, Claire sets out to travel back to the future through Craigh Na Dun’s standing stones to give her unborn child a chance at life.

Claire Protects Her Family

In the third season finale, Claire must prevent former friend Geillis (Lotte Verbeek) from returning to the future in order to harm her and Jamie’s daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton), as well as prevent the woman from killing her nephew Young Ian (John Bell). This leads Claire to take drastic measures by killing Geillis in a Jamaican cave with a machete. It’s a brutal end to a devious character, but a true triumph for a protective Claire who keeps her family safe in that moment.

Claire Jumps Into Action

During an excursion to the theater, Claire finds herself in an impossible position when someone falls ill and requires immediate surgery. Instead of being deterred by the men around her, Claire performs surgery in front of a whole crowd without Jamie by her side to support her. It’s a truly impressive undertaking we can’t help but commend.

Claire Defends Her Home

After being accused of killing Malva Christie (Jessica Reynolds), Claire and her home are attacked, forcing her and Jamie to defend the big house of Fraser’s Ridge. Arming herself with a gun, she doesn’t hesitate to use it when people begin trespassing without due cause. While she and Jamie are eventually captured and taken in, this is a defining heroic moment for the Fraser family matriarch.

Claire Steps on to the Battlefield

When Jamie doesn’t return to camp following a revolutionary battle at Saratoga, Claire takes it upon herself to find him. Noticing him unconscious on the battlefield, she defends her husband against threats by wielding a sword. We approve.
