The Outlander cast (including Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Cesar Domboy, and more) + talk of romantic gestures = ALL THE FEELS. Happy #ValentinesDay, clan!

Video: Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe’s Very First ‘Outlander’ Chemistry Test Will Make You Swoon!

We have a very special Valentine’s Day surprise for you, Sassenachs…

Everyone knows that Outlander’s Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe have an undeniably electric on-screen connection, and since fans are feeling particularly thirsty during this Droughtlander, ET is gifting you with the exclusive first look at the actors’ original chemistry test!

Before you scream, “Je suis prest!” and press play on the video above, we must warn you that the never-before-seen footage you’re about to watch is mind-blowingly adorable. Side-effects may include excessive giggling, extreme swooning and the firm realization that no on-screen couple will ever compare to this one.

At this point in Outlander’s script-to-screen timeline, Heughan had already been cast to play Jamie Fraser and the production team was looking for the perfect actress to fill Claire Randall’s one-of-a-kind shoes.

“We were looking for chemistry between the two characters,” Outlander executive producer Ronald D. Moore said while prefacing the flashback moment. “We really felt that Cat was probably going to be the one, but this was the final moment. This was literally when she sealed the deal and got the show.”

“And as you see, they’ve already got the shorthand of their characters and there is definitely on-camera chemistry between the two. After the scene was over, we just kind of kept the tape running a little bit.” Moore continued, “We just wanted to see them a little bit more relaxed and sort of interacting. You can see that they’re sort of awkwardly aware that the camera is still running, but nonetheless, there is enough spontaneity and genuine affection and good humor between the two of them that it spoke volumes about their potential relationship.”

Caitriona Balfe Is Engaged! Outlander Actress Shows Off Her Ring at 2018 Golden Globes

Balfe showed off her new sparkler at the Golden Globes on Sunday night (get a close-up view here).

It happened over the break. I’m very happy,” she told PEOPLE.

He also accompanied her at the 2016 ceremony for Jodie Foster’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

They were first seen together in 2015 when a friend shared an Instagram video of Balfe sitting on McGill’s lap.

Outlander: Inside Jamie and Claire’s ‘rough’ adventure, plus season 4 intel

Put away those steel drums and forget about the Planter’s Punch: Though Jamie and Claire are about to set sail for Jamaica in Sunday’s episode of Outlander, it will be anything but a Caribbean vacation for the not-so-euphorically happy couple.

“There are no umbrella drinks going on,” teases executive producer Matthew B. Roberts. “It is rough going for both of them.”

In breathless anticipation of the drama’s final five episodes, EW returned to Scotland to chat with Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser) and Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) about the passionate reunion of their characters in episode 5 and how love doesn’t necessarily conquer all when so much time has passed.

“The hard work in any relationship is getting beyond the fantasy,” Balfe tells EW. “That’s when all the truth comes out and Claire learns everything. You want it all to go smooth sailing. But reality is never like that. It’s not the Disney dream.”

But something magical will happen in the coming episodes. For this week’s cover, EW is offering fans an exclusive first look of the fancy togs Claire and Jamie don to attend a lavish ball in Jamaica. If you think the costumes look familiar, then you would be right; the couple wore them at the Palace of Versailles during season two.

“It’s an Easter egg,” says costume designer Terry Dresbach of Jamie’s smart suit and Claire’s sumptuous saffron gown. It’s also historically accurate to re-purpose the outfits. “In the 18th century, people would have an item of clothing for their entire lifetime,” she adds. “So things got remade, repaired, and reconfigured. We will see that a lot in Outlander coming up.”

For the next issue of Entertainment Weekly, we’ll give some hints about what Claire and Jamie will encounter in the Caribbean while on the hunt for Young Ian (John Bell). We’ll also share some secrets about season 4, like how a green pasture in Scotland will double as a North Carolina plantation owned by Aunt Jocasta, a key character in the new year that will be played by Maria Doyle Kennedy.

And good news, Sassenachs! We’ve created another trio of Outlander covers to go with the last set. The first two below, featuring Heughan and Balfe individually, will be available to subscribers and on newsstands Friday. The third, showing the two actors together, will be available exclusively at Barnes & Noble stores beginning Tuesday, Aug. 29.

Press/Video: Sony Interview with Caitriona and Sophie

Sony talked to Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe and Sophie Skelton about the evolution of Claire and Brianna’s relationship so far in Season 3. Check out the interview below.

Press: Outlander: Claire and Jamie’s reunion episode will be supersize

Episode 6 of the third season of Outlander will get the supersize treatment when it airs on Sunday, Oct. 22. Not only will the episode, titled “A. Malcolm,” finally bring the beloved century-crossed lovers back together, fans will also get the added bonus of a 74-minute extended episode to really relish the couple’s long-anticipated reunion.

And that’s not all. Before the epic sixth episode, Starz will air the first five episodes of the season so far, giving viewers the chance to truly prep for the momentous moment.

It’s been 20 long years apart for Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan), but in episode 5, the couple finally found themselves back in the same century and country after Claire traveled back through the standing stones to 18th century Edinburgh — much to Jamie’s surprise!

Cesar Domboy is said to be making his first appearance on the series as adult Fergus.
