Jamie kills Randall at Culloden, and is gravely injured, but spared execution. At Ardsmuir prison, he befriends the governor Lord John Grey, who later paroles him to work at an English estate. There Jamie is manipulated into a sexual liaison and fathers an illegitimate son, William. Jamie returns to Scotland and becomes a printer.

With the help of Roger Wakefield, Claire finds clues to Jamie’s fate after Culloden. She returns to the 18th century, and discovers Jamie has married a widowed Laoghaire. Claire’s return nullifies their union as illegal. They try to retrieve some hidden treasure so that he can placate Laoghaire with a settlement. But his nephew Ian is captured by pirates and taken to the Caribbean. Jamie and Claire follow, and manage to rescue him from Geillis (who had escaped burning at the stake in season one). Claire and Jamie sail for Scotland, but are shipwrecked on the coast of Georgia.
