Claire (played by Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) have shared several saucy scenes throughout Outlander but one intimate moment which was cut from season five shows a different side to the couple’s love. Fans will remember Jamie almost died from a snake bite and Claire was at her wits end over what to do to save him.

Fortunately, the medic was able to stop her beloved husband from dying as she created her own penicillin.

Claire made the lifesaving drug using mould and many of those at Fraser’s Ridge were left perturbed by what she was doing.

However, it turned out to be a brilliant move as she used it to save Jamie from death.

Despite Claire’s needle being broken earlier in season five, Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton) constructed a suitable device to inject the drug into her father.

Claire managed to inject the penicillin in time to stop the snake’s venom from spreading through Jamie’s body, killing him.

While he took some time to recover, Jamie was happy to be back in the arms of his wife.

Unfortunately fans didn’t get to see the loving moment Claire explained how she had saved his life – and no, it wasn’t down to that sex act!

In a deleted scene, Claire can be seen showing her husband the penicillin and where it came from.

Jamie understand that the word penicillin can mean “paint brush” but when he looks in Claire’s microscope he notes it doesn’t like a brush.

Claire agrees saying she hasn’t found penicillin yet as it should look like a “paint brush”.

It’s at this point Jamie is shocked by her admission and exclaims: “That was mould that you put in my a**?”

“That helped didn’t it? Now if I can find the right strain then I can make penicillin,” Claire replies.

“I wish you could see what I see. It’s beauty and it’s potential. One day penicillin will save millions of lives.”

Jamie goes on to ask why it is so important to Claire and she explains she wants to save more lives.

“Grow all the mould you want, sassenach,” Jamie tells her before leaving her to continue with her work.

Meanwhile, as fans wait for season six, the cast have opened up on dealing with the tough final episode.

Claire was abducted and sexually assaulted before being rescued by Jamie and his men.

Reflecting on the episode, Caitriona told Deadline: “I think anytime you tackle sexual violence or rape you want to do it the most responsible way that you can and I think something we’ve always done on Outlander is try and take a point of view and highlight something that can be somewhat helpful in terms of starting a conversation.

“ With this particular storyline, when Matt came to talk to us about it and start talking about disassociation, which is also something which you don’t often see when rape is being handled.

“So we talked a lot with RAINN at how we could approach this and also just in terms of making sure we had trigger warnings at the start of the episode.”

Outlander seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video now.
