“Outlander” superfans were definitely in for a treat with Sunday night’s episode as Jamie (Sam Heughan) finally took revenge on Jack (Tobias Menzies).

“When he kills him, was that satisfying for you to read that in the script?” Roz asks Balfe. “We were all like, ‘Yeah!’ It’s a great moment in the show. I mean, obviously we love Tobias, but there’s always a part of you that’s like ‘Oh, Tobias’ but for Blackjack, yeah… get rid of him.”

The actress finally answers the toughest question: Is she Team Jamie or Team Frank?

“I have a very soft spot in my heart for Frank,” she admits. “Everyone can have muscles if they go to the gym all the time but he’s a smart man. He’s tender, he’s bookish and a bit nerdy. Nerdy is good.”

“Outlander” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.
