Outlander EP Matthew B. Roberts Teases Season 5: Jamie Is Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Outlander EP Matthew B. Roberts Teases Season 5: Jamie Is Between a Rock and a Hard Place:




I loved the Season 2 dynamic with Jamie and Claire working together to stop Culloden from happening, and how it continued into the back half when they were back in Scotland. MBR’s answer to one of the question makes me think (hope?) they might be bringing back that dynamic for these two. I hope that’s the case! We all missed Jamie and Claire together, as well as Claire’s voice, this past season.

Then the other balance is for book fans. There are 20-something million readers of the series and they all love certain moments — the wedding, the reunion, the print shop, when Jamie meets Brianna, those are easy, those are the given — but there are those other little moments in the books that an individual might love and this is where we get into these arguments in the writer’s room. I may love one thing, someone else loves another thing, someone else loves another, and we can’t all agree, so I can imagine that’s a microcosm of our fans.

In WHAT world did no one argue hard enough for Jamie and Claire being at River Run for Brianna having her baby? IN WHAT UNIVERSE IS THAT NOT SOMETHING EVERYONE LOVED AND WANTED TO SEE LOL.

It’s mind boggling @desperationandgin. They added a dialogue in S3 where Claire said to Brianna, “I may never be with you when you become a mother yourself" WHICH WAS NOT IN THE BOOK. They added a scene in S4 where Claire became melancholy about Brianna, when she was watching a heavily pregnant Marsali because her daughter was about the same age WHICH WAS NOT IN THE BOOK. Then they didn’t bring Claire back to help with Brianna’s birth. They made her say “Your aunt will find you a good midwife”. The Doctor Claire, who doesn’t trust any health professional of that time (and quite rightly so), had sent her pregnant daughter away with a HALFHEARTED comment. Even without what we know about Claire’s personality or what’s in the book, It’s like they even forgot what they wrote in the earlier episode’s script let alone the earlier season.
