Do Jamie and Claire die in Outlander? Could the show follow suit? 

As the seventh season of the Diana Gabaldon adaptation approaches, 

you might wonder, "Do Jamie and Claire die in the Outlander books?"

You've been missing out on some incredibly compelling narrative if you haven't figured out how to watch Outlander yet.  

The television program, which is based on Diana Gabaldon's Outlander novel series, 

depicts the time-traveling romance between 18th-century Highland warrior Jamie Fraser and 20th-century nurse Claire Randall.

The couple has already encountered a number of risky circumstances,  

and things aren't likely to get much safer as the American Revolution approaches in season 7.

Do Jamie and Claire perish in the Outlander novels, though?
