One of the biggest questions for new Outlander fans is about the man watching Claire from the window. Here are all the answers you need to know.

Every single Outlander fan is currently screaming at this question even being asked again. But you know what? Let them! Yes, if you’re reading this you get to scream, but remember what it’s like to be a new fan asking questions for the first time.

We’ve all been there. We’ve all had the same questions, and rather than risk being screamed at in Facebook groups or on Twitter, some fans take to Google to find the answers. And that’s the point of this post. I have no judgment for new fans asking the questions that have been asked over and over again.

It’s okay! We welcome all new Outlander fans with open arms!

One of the biggest questions is who was watching Claire on the Outlander series premiere? Who did Frank see watching her in the first book before she went through the stones? There is only one answer.

Jamie was watching Claire from the window on Outlander

Yes, it was Jamie.

It doesn’t matter what theories you have for other characters. My husband had the theory that it was Rupert or Angus at one point because he’d been watching Claire for so long before Claire married Jamie.

But no, it was most definitely Jamie. And if you watch the series premiere again, you’ll see it more clearly. It’s a little harder when it comes to the book because Frank tells Claire what he saw and doesn’t really describe who he sees.

Diana Gabaldon has confirmed it’s Jamie watching Claire. We don’t get to find out how or why just yet. That’s to come in the last book, and hopefully, at the very end of the TV series.
