Outlander featured a lot of violence and certainly one of the first moments of extreme violence in Outlander came after Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) spoke about how he was whipped by the evil Captain Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies).
When Jamie Fraser (Sam Heghan) was caught and flogged in Outlander Captain Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) decided he was going to administer another hundred lashes.
Despite the protests, Jamie Fraser’s wounds needed time to heal, Black Jack whipped him again, leaving him with a devastated back and permanent scars on Outlander.
The violent moment was not only physically harrowing but also emotionally after Jamie’s father witnessed the flogging. Jamie’s father died from the shock, leaving the young man in charge of the family and Lallybroch.
Speaking about filming the Outlander scene, Sam Heughan admitted that it was hard work, especially since it was filmed in freezing temperatures in February he also explained that he wanted to see Jamie lose almost everything, but no.
He also commented that the reason for that devastating moment is because they had to give Jamie’s scars deep meaning in Outlander so that they would become the driving force for him later on.
