Jamie and Claire will meet a few interesting characters now that they are finally in France. However, life isn’t going to be easy as Jamie will continue to struggle to overcome his past, and the Duke of Sandringham’s presence will pose trouble for the couple.
Season 2 episode 2 of the Starz drama is titled “Not in Scotland Anymore” and according to the synopsis, the couple will meet Prince Charles, who will prove to be helpful. But thanks to Claire’s desire to help a sick person, the couple has already made an enemy, and as the season progresses, we’ll see how Comte St. Germain affects Jamie and Claire’s life in Paris.
Season 2 of “Outlander” premiered Saturday and executive producer Ronald D Moore seems to have angered book purists by starting the season in 1940s instead of 1960s as it is in Diana Gabaldon’s book titled “Dagonfly in Amber.”
“There are still people who are mad about the wedding ring, and that was a fairly small change compared to restructuring the order of book two, starting in the 1940s instead of the 1960s, and enlarging Frank’s part to make him largely more sympathetic,” Moore told Yahoo! about the changes. “But I feel good about the changes we made, and I am well aware after doing Battlestar Galactica and Season 1 of this that you are never going to make 100 percent of the people happy 100 percent of the time. That is just how it goes.”
However, author Gabaldon said she was fine with the adjustments and that it was a “good way to handle a complicated story.”
The first half of the episode saw Frank learning about his wife’s time with Jamie and that she was carrying Jamie’s child. But Frank finally agreed to accept the child as his own.
“Outlander” airs Saturdays on Starz.
