The honeymoon period couldn’t last forever for Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) on Outlander.

Despite sharing an extremely passionate romance all throughout season one, the newlyweds’ move to France has taken quite the toll on their marriage. From Jamie’s frustrations over having to pretend to be someone he’s not, to Claire’s loneliness as Jamie pulled back from their relationship after his traumatic rape, to the stress their mission of sabotaging the Jacobite rebellion has put on them, Jamie finally reached a breaking point in Saturday’s episode.

All their season two marital troubles to a head in the final moments, when Claire made Jamie promise not to kill Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) for one year, to give him time to marry Mary Hawkins (Rosie Day) and produce a child, thereby securing Frank Randall’s (Menzies) future. Jamie had been gung-ho about dueling Black Jack ever since they came face-to-face unexpectedly at Versailles earlier in the episode, excited to finally have the chance to get his revenge on the sadistic soldier. But Claire’s compassion for her first husband won out, and although it physically pained Jamie to do so, he agreed to her one-year plea.
