Check out the first glorious minute from Outlander's highly anticipated opening episode of the second half of season one
Starz has released the first minute for the highly anticipated second half of the first season of its hit series Outlander which finally returns on April 4th after a painful, six-month long hiatus.
The opening scene - introduced by showrunner extraordinaire Ronald D. Moore - comes from Jamie's (Sam Heughan) point of view instead of Claire's (Caitriona Balfe), which was the only one we've heard so far. This also marks a stark departure from the first book written by Herself, Diana Gabaldon, on which season one is based, because it was told solely from Claire's POV. We first heard Jamie's "voice" in the third book of the series, Voyager.
It's a bit jarring and doesn't pick up exactly where I thought it would, but it's very interesting to hear what Jamie thinks. (Since the official Starz video is for US viewers only, I managed to fish out this one which everyone can see.) Have a look after the cut.
