Outlander viewers have seen a number of bad events occur during season five of the Starz show. While things have certainly been difficult for Brianna Fraser (played by Sophie Skelton) this season, but this week’s season finale is going to show Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) kidnapped by an old acquaintance.

Last week saw Claire disappear in the final scenes, prompting Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) to gather support from his peers to track her down and save her.

In the trailer for the season finale it has been revealed Claire was kidnapped by none other than Lionel Brown (Ned Dennehy).

Lionel made an appearance earlier in the season during an instance which saw Claire proving him with medical aid.

Despite Lionel being a horrific misogynist to Claire, she still helped him and sent him on his way.

Now, after fans spotted Lionel taking Claire as his captive, fans have become furious at her for letting him go in the first place.

Reddit user missanneverona recently ranted: “Why does Claire keep saving despicable men?!!!! Please explain it to me!

“Brown didn’t even ask for her help! Then the ungrateful a*****e brutally kidnaps her. [Shaking my head] His cruelty almost cost Jaimie his life, if not for Brianna’s ingenuity.

“Claire should have let his leg rot. It’s Bonnet all over again.”

Fans of the show agreed with this sentiment, and began chiming in with some possible reasons as to why Claire was eager to help the despicable man.

One responded: “Yeah, she is obsessed with helping people medically, no matter how she thinks of the person.

“Unfortunately that is who she is, the show had set this up long time ago, and she isn’t gonna change in her 50s. To be fair she couldn’t foresee how bad it would get with Brown.”

Another pointed towards her medical training and succinctly replied: “Hippocratic Oath. She has to save everyone.”

It is certainly in Claire’s nature to help whomever may need it – but could it ultimately be her downfall?

Jamie star Sam recently spoke out about the final episode of the season, and teased it could see Claire and Jamie in a bad way.

Speaking to Glamour he explained: “I think people that read the books know what happens.

“But even those people are going to be surprised by the way that it’s been shot and the way that we approached it.”

“Jamie and Claire’ll certainly need each other for the next few episodes,” Sam added.

“And, certainly, this finale is going to be really testing for them both.”

Could this final be bold enough to split up the Frasers for good?

Outlander season 5 finale airs Sunday on Starz in the US and drops Monday on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
