Well, I am probably making trouble for myself here, but I couldn’t help it. Now that we have a delicious new promo after months of sad Outlander fasting, I had to share some of my thoughts, quick-n-dirty. I’ve read the books and there will absolutely be spoilers, so be warned.
But first, an inspirational image.
For book lovers, this is most likely where Jamie is rushing back to town once notified of Claire’s incarceration. Or maybe he just really loves sunsets.
This is followed by a voice over by Collum, who is no doubt speaking to Dougal, as images flash by:
“One day, brother, you’ll talk your head off your shoulders…and right onto a pike.”
Jamie hugs Claire next to what looks like a stone wall, perhaps after the rescue from BJR… That look on his face is pretty dire, and I immediately fixate on the size of his hands. /shudder
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Gilly D is that one friend whose “clove cigarillo” always landed you in detention, even when you didn’t smoke it at all THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A CONTACT HIGH. *ahem*
Moving on, this is what Miracle Max was talking about when he meant there are some people you can’t bring back.
And I’m starting to feel like Dougal’s quest, no matter how noble in concept, is maybe not morally best for all involved….
And Collum, who is never one to waste words, makes a super-pointed barb at his dear bro, which hints at the coming trouble in the clan. From this point, things speed up a bit.
Poor horses. They never start it, but boy do they always get to finish it.
Honestly hoping for Claire here, because Mrs. Claus has enough to deal with this time of year, and I doubt Santa’s got what it takes to battle Randall.
Speaking of Jamie… I’m a bit concerned….
Let me take a break and grease the wheels. With wine. Ahh, much better.
You know things can’t be good when Geillis isn’t looking smug, sardonic, or otherwise amused. What is going on with the pout?
You can still count on her accessories game, though. Just because your life goes to hell doesn’t mean your outfit should.
And next, a voice over from Claire:
“I never counted on loving you.”
Ouch. Pretty obvious what that one is. Upset Claire is really sad icing on the tension cupcake, so I will choose to think instead that it is over something trivial.
Thanks, imagination. I am guessing from the poor lighting that this is a continuation of third cap above.
And here is Jamie again, presumably moments after we just left him in Captain Randall’s window. Rage shouldn’t look this good on a man.
And I’m not the only one noticing.
So frantically finish sewing your cosplay outfits, folks. After the holidays it is three short months until we get more of our fave show, coming atcha hard, with more of what you love.
Hooray for more Outlander, in whatever shape and whenever it may come! For more fun, follow me here or @conniebv on Twitter.
