On April 25, Diana Gabaldon shared Daily Lines from her ninth book, providing a snippet into the future of the Jamie/John relationship.
There’s no denying that David Berry stole the show as Lord John Grey in Outlander Season 3. The chemistry between him and Sam Heughan was intense, as you saw the love and adoration Lord John Grey had for Jamie Fraser. While we know that Jamie is committed to Claire in a romantic way, there’s always that thought that Jamie and John are best friends for life.
If you haven’t caught up with the books, there are spoilers in this post. It’s all about a breakdown of the book nine Daily Lines from Diana Gabaldon on April 25.
I’m sorry to say but Lord John Grey and Jamie Fraser will not be best friends for life. Something happens (and will likely happen in later seasons) that causes a rift between them. This is something you get an idea about in the snippet from “Go Tell the Bees that I Am Gone.” Claire makes it clear that she believes the fall out wasn’t her fault, but it is on her account.

You’ll need to take to the comments on the Facebook post to get the full details of the Jamie/John relationship. There, Gabaldon shares her take on the things running through Jamie’s head.
Claire and John get married and they do consummate that relationship, albeit drunkenly (not a surprise for Claire when consummating a marriage that she’s not entirely a fan of). Of course, there’s a very good reason why the two get married. They think Jamie is dead. When he returns alive, things go a little sideways for this odd love triangle.

Gabaldon shares that while this was hard enough for Jamie, it was the knowledge that both Claire and John were thinking of Jamie while consummating their marriage. Claire thinking of Jamie likely wouldn’t be that off-putting. It would be the idea of John thinking of Jamie after everything that Jamie has been through–and it would still affect him these decades on.
It’s going to be sad watching the breakdown of the relationship take place on Outlander. The good news is this snippet shows there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. While they may never be best friends again, they will find their way back to some sort of friendship.
