“Cut for time” those are the words we don’t like to hear, I refrain from using the word “hate” as I don’t hate anything about #Outlander. Like other viewers, who are also book readers, we felt the loss of certain words, I’m not going to spoil it here you can see what we missed out on in the video.

I’m sorry if this part will bring tears to your eyes, just like it did to mine, but this extended scene will deliver the part that was missing in our lives!

While we #TrustRonMoore, there are times (I must admit), that we do not understand some of the choices made, but then we weren’t in the editing room. I can only trust the choices were made for good reason (of course) and for the benefit of the viewing audience. As we know a substantial proportion of viewers have not read the books (and are not required to do so), and as such will not know of the loss of words which over the course of reading and re-reading have become special to some of us.

Not only that, we are blessed to have the acting talents of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe to bring us these transcendent scenes.

  1. Sure … liked this version better. Much more emotionally engaging. I understand writers, producers … have to make decisions because of time but some times those decisions leave a slightly flatter product for viewer. For what it is worth, I have had similar thoughts regarding other differences in content and casting. Though with that said, I think the adaptation from book version is pretty awesome. And I hope you all get through the entire series.

  2. As much as I wish this entire scene had been included in the show, I’m just happy that they actually filmed it and we’ll get it on the DVD. This is exactly what I’d been hoping for in Season 2–more scenes showing the closeness and connection between them. I wanted to see what I knew from reading the books–their love is stronger than anything and no matter what, they’ll always come back together. Loved this extended scene. Get your tissues before viewing! And I totally agree–we are so lucky to have Sam and Cait playing these roles. Cait was especially phenomenal in this episode–well, she and the rest of the cast are always amazing, but in this one, she just took my breath away. It’s a crime she wasn’t nominated for an Emmy. For a women who has no children in real life, she absolutely nailed it.
