Now, as fans look deeper into the promotional material provided for the fifth season, they have come to the conclusion it will include a dramatic and horrifying scene which sees Claire being raped while in captivity.

“I have read that Diana [Gabaldon] wrote the penultimate episode. Therefore, my theory is that the penultimate episode of the season will be Claire’s rape from ABOSAA [A Breath of Snow and Ashes].”
Outlander season 5 premieres on Starz on February 16, 2020, and the next day on Amazon Prime Video.
