In Season 4 when the couple finds the location of what will become Fraser’s Ridge, their devotion to a shared future and life makes not just Jamie and Claire feel reassured, but viewers as well. It’s never a bad thing to find out nothing is going to change between the hot duo anytime soon.
10. Shipwrecked But Safe
In the Season 3 finale when Claire and Jamie find themselves overboard, fans were fearful for a brief time that harsh weather could separate this couple once again. When Jamie discovers that his wife is alive beside him on the beach and their loved ones are okay, the reassuring embrace has viewers feeling the love right through their screens.
9. American Dream
In Season 4 as Jamie and Claire get comfortable in North Carolina, their adventures in the woods of the south lead to some super sweet moments such as the scene above where Claire and Jamie discuss the American dream. It’s their promises to each other which help land this exchange on the list.
8. Boat Shenanigans
During Jamie and Claire’s voyage across the sea to save young Ian, they’re separated into different cabins so they have to sneak around like teenagers to steal some steamy moments, much to viewers’ enjoyment.
7. Beach Bums
After Claire and Jamie are separated for a brief time during Season 3, they dramatically run to one another on the beach in a scene plucked directly from the romance genre. Despite the cliched nature of such an exchange, their embrace on the beach is every bit as hot as their overall relationship. But, it’s the moment this scene leads to later on involving a certain turtle soup and a buzzed Claire that’s truly memorable.
6. The Dress
When Jamie and Claire are living in Paris during Season 2, a brief scene between them before heading to Versailles is equal parts hot and hilarious. When Claire descends the staircase, Jamie’s shocked reaction to her revealing dress makes way for some truly adorable banter.
5. Kiss and Make Up
During the first season when Jamie and Claire are still learning about each other, she sets some boundaries when it comes to Jamie’s treatment of her as a woman after he exhibited corporal punishment. Once her terms — that she be treated as an equal — were met, the tension dissolved into one rather steamy moment.
4. Hello Stranger
After episodes and years apart, Jamie and Claire’s first moments back together again in Season 3 were filled with emotion. Part of what makes this reunion so sweet is their initial hesitance towards one another — their consideration for each other is admirable and part of their charm.
3. A Memorable Goodbye
In the Season 2 finale when Jamie and Claire part ways at the standing stones of Craigh Na Dun, the sadness was palpable, but so was their mutual devotion. Whispered promises and declarations along with other stolen moments saw them make the most of their brief time before Culloden began. For this the iconic farewell is also one of the couple’s hottest moments.
2. Twenty Years Later
In Season 3 of the series, Jamie and Claire finally reunite after around 20 years apart. Aside from the buildup of waiting for the coveted meeting, they went on to essentially relive their first night together as husband and wife and along the way proved that age is just a number.
1. The Wedding
So, this is less of a moment and more of a whole entire episode dedicated to the beginning of Jamie and Claire’s marital relationship. Years later and it remains one of the most-talked about episodes of the series making it the obvious choice for number one.
