OUTLANDER (2014) #2 Jamie & Claire talking in episode 107 “The Wedding”

In the book, the “Revelations of the Bridal Chamber” is one of the most pivotal & important parts of this whole love story, and I kind of felt this was rather pushed aside in favour of portraying longer sex scenes. Also missing was the all-important discussion about honesty, which I hope is rectified in the next ep. You can only fit so much into an hour of TV, so I thought keeping their exchange of family stories was OK, as well as Jamie’s reassurance to Claire that he would protect her from now. It’s my perception, but I’m rather disturbed at this point that I can barely read Claire’s supposed “glass face,” yet every emotion that Jamie has is clearly displayed on his. I think Cait is a wonderful actress so it also disturbs me that she might have been directed to be like this. Claire is a woman of great passions & I expect to see it!

OUTLANDER (2014) #1 Jamie & family in episode 107 “The Wedding”

Even with the major departure from the book story, still a lot of great things in this episode! The scene additions of Jamie discussing his pending nuptials with his uncle Dougal & godfather Murtagh is near the top of my positive list! I was SO happy to hear & see Murtagh’s involvement, while Dougal was being typically himself the whole time LOL. And then there’s Jamie’s key that Rupert & Angus were instructed to have made into Claire’s marriage ring. I would have preferred it remain Jamie’s father’s ring in the scene… for the TV exchange, the key story had better be a good one!

LEGENDS (2014) Gauntlet episode 6, fave Sean Bean shots

On twitter the Legends writers said this episode was shot like a classic western; my reply was that it was more like a spaghetti western, but I meant that in a good way as some of those films are my faves! Len Barlow is definitely my fave Martin legend so far, Sean played this to the hilt & I imagine it was great fun for him. Was Martin working for Verax too? Glad to see more of Tony Rice included, still hoping he gets a promotion to DCO. And another new player to Martin’s mystery even as he loses another! Looks like a brand new legend for Martin next week. Keep it coming but #DONTKILLSEANBEAN!!

OUTLANDER (2014) 106 #2 Jamie & Claire discussing marriage “The Garrison Commander”

Here is Jamie telling Claire that his worldly goods & status weren’t much prospect for marriage to a local lass, so he might as well marry her to bail her out of trouble. Of course we all know that Jamie badly wants Claire anyway! Have to say, this scene rather fell short of my image from the book, where is Jamie’s rakish grin when he tells her he’s a virgin? But at least Claire took the booze so I still hope to see her stinking drunk! And I still feel really sorry for Claire in this situation.

Next episode: the wedding! It’ll be even worse for Claire with the flashbacks to her marriage to Frank.

OUTLANDER (2014) 106 #1 Jamie flogging flashback in “The Garrison Commander”

"There’s no joy in flogging a dead man," Jamie said in Castle Leoch, "if Randall wasn’t particularly joyous, he was certainly pleased with himself."

I thought it was important to show this terrible pivotal event in Jamie’s life, and his defiance of it. This punishment was not only unjust & made him take desperate measures to escape it going further, it also cost his family dearly. Remember what Jamie said to Claire back in Castle Leoch when she first saw the scars: “[A crime] is whatever the English say it is.” And so was the punishment for it.

LEGENDS (2014) Rogue episode 5, fave Sean Bean shots

I thought I liked Dante best but new legend Len Barlow ups that ante! Sean doing a Texas cowboy! This was terrific, this is what I was hoping the main push of the series would be, to Martin & who he might or might not be. I like Tony Rice & the cases in order to see new legends but it’s almost a distraction. I liked Maggie a lot better this time. With Sonya Odum, some of my suspicions were confirmed by this episode, and I hope this tale keeps being chased! The writers on twitter @LegendsWriters made a jest that included something about a 2nd series, I hope this is going to be true!

OUTLANDER (2014) 105 #3 Jamie reacting to Claire’s joke in “Rent”

"You’re a witty one!" Claire’s joke to Rupert was one of the best scenes in the episode!!!

I LOVE this cast, LOVE additional non-book scenes but so far I’m not 100% pleased with the basic book story adaption. I’m holding my tongue on further comment about that until I see how episode 106 “The Garrison Commander” plays out. Don’t miss it!!

OUTLANDER (2014) 105 #2 Jamie speaking to Claire in “Rent”

In just the space of a minute or so, we get another sequence of Sam’s #JamieFaces OVERLOAD!!!! Again, so much was made of Claire’s “glass face” expressions in the book, and you know Jamie had them, but I never expected it to be so obvious & eloquent!!
