As we enter Outlander season 5, there is some exciting news for one Jamie Fraser — after all, he’s going to have an opportunity to be more of a leader than ever at Fraser’s Ridge! It’s an exciting opportunity to see just how much he’s learned from his various trials and tribulations … also a chance to see him face some new struggles.
Moving into season 5, one of the biggest issues that Jamie is going to face is knowing what to say and do — and also knowing the right time to do it. People are going to be looking to him for big decisions and while Jamie may be a fantastic leader, he’s also not perfect. He’s going to make mistakes — he already has and, odds are, he’s going to make more of them in the future. He just needs to not beat himself up too much when it happens.

So how is Sam Heughan perceiving the story ahead for his character? Well, here is some of what the actor had to say on the subject of Jamie’s leadership in a new interview with Syfy Wire:
“As we saw at the end of Season 4, he made a deal with the Redcoats and it’s the wrong side … But, I think [otherwise], the characters feel settled. Fraser’s Ridge has flourished and they’ve really established their roots. You see how Jamie has built this incredible main house, and his family, and extended family, are living around him now. He’s become — without meaning to — the honorary clan chief. It’s a lot of responsibility, not only for his family, but his tenants, and everyone who lives in the area. With that comes responsibility, and that’s where he’s got himself into a problem.”
So what could these problems be? We know one of them already, as we’re going to see Jamie wrestle with how to handle the problem of the British Government and also the Regulators. Yet, beyond just that some more problems are going to arise around Fraser’s Ridge — there are going to be a lot of new settlers to the area and while we’d like to assume that all of them are going to be on your best behavior, we can’t be sure of that. There could be a conflict that comes from just about every possible direction.
Alas, you’re going to have to wait for a pretty long period of time in order to see whatever Jamie’s next leadership struggle is — Outlander season 5 is probably not premiering until 2020.
