Added DiffLines:

* Jamie's insistence on coming to the house when Jenny is in labor, despite being warned that English soldiers are in the area. It shows that he truly loves his sister, that he's willing to put himself at risk like that.

Added DiffLines:

* Mary MacNab offering to sleep with Jamie to give him something to good to hold on to while in prison. She's not offering for herself, but out of a sense of compassion and generosity, and even tells Jamie that she understands that he loves Claire with all his heart and isn't trying to replace that.

* Some of Jamie's actions during the ride to Leoch are heartwarming, especially in regards to Claire:
** Jamie, during the ride to Leoch, positions his cloak so that it will cover Claire in addition to himself, because he sees that Claire is shivering.
** When the group stops for the night Claire's stomach rumbles loudly, and Rupert assumes that it's Jamie who's hungry, as Jamie is sitting right next to Claire. Jamie doesn't admit that it was really Claire's stomach which was rumbling, but gallantly assumes the blame instead. Straight afterward as the whisky is being passed around Jamie convinces Claire to take a sip from the bottle to take the edge off her hunger.



* [[spoiler: Roger and Bree's return to the 18th century with their family.]] Especially the joy on Jamie and Claire's faces when they recognise Brianna and immediately run down the hill to greet her. It's made more heartwarming (and very tear-jerking) when you remember that they never expected to see each other ever again and now here Brianna is with her husband, her son and her daughter Mandy, who Jamie and Claire never expected to see and get to know since she was only an infant when Bree and Roger were forced to leave.

* Although often overlooked next to Claire and Jamie's romance, Frank talking to Claire about the possibility that she might have had an affair is very sweet, considering that this is the 1940s, and the attitudes towards female sexuality and adultery during the period. Could double as a TearJerker, considering how the relationship ends, but that doesn't detract from the sweetness of the sentiment.
---> "It wouldn't unusual if...I mean, everyone knows doctors and nurses are under tremendous stress during emergencies and...well, I...it's just that...well, I'd understand, you know, if anything, er, of a spontaneous nature..." "I only meant to say that even if you ever did...Claire, it would make no difference to me. I love you so. Nothing could ever stop my loving you."



* In flashback, Frank's adoration of Brianna. It's especially heartwarming when you think that in ''Outlander'' he'd told Claire that he'd never be able to love a child who wasn't of his blood. Fast-forward to ''Voyager'', and it's clear that he was wrong. He truly loves Brianna and considers her his daughter.

* Jamie adopting Fergus, and their subsequent relationship. Fergus looks up to Jamie as a son looks up to a father, and it's clear [[spoiler: by ''Voyager'' that Fergus is like a son to Jamie]].
** The reason for Jamie's challenging Randall to a duel is not to satisfy his need for vengeance for his own rape, but to avenge Fergus' abuse at the hands of Randall. That goes to show just how much Jamie has come to care for Fergus (in a fatherly way) in the months since they met.

Added DiffLines:

* Young Ian goes out of his way to bring Claire back to Lallybroch after Jamie is shot, probably knowing that they should be together and that Jamie doesn't want her to leave him again. He even goes to such lengths as to tell Claire that Jamie is dying, thinking that she wouldn't go back to him for anything less than that. And what makes it all the more heartwarming is that he did all this without anyone in Lallybroch knowing, least of all Jamie and Claire.
