Thank you so much for all your comments and well wishes, they mean a lot to me. 🙏🏼
What did you guys think of Episode 703? I believe I enjoyed it even more than Episode 702. Similar to Season 6, so far, each episode just seems to get better. Here are some thoughts I jotted down after watching…
I saw that one person asked why they didn’t include how Jamie knew exactly the size of Claire’s grip for her new knife. Perhaps they will address that in the podcast – I notice that 701 and 702 are out. Official Outlander Podcast. There is also a link to these at the bottom of my Home Page. Someone was asking about the link to the scripts on the Home Page – that’s still there, but I don’t see any links to the Season 7 scripts yet.
I saw that several people called out that Ian was not in Episode 406, Blood of My Blood, so how could he be referencing Willie and the privy scene? I find it hard to believe that there would be an oversight of that magnitude, so I’m guessing there is a plan – a flashback? Something. Perhaps we didn’t see every moment of Willie’s visit to the Ridge in 406?
BTS about the actor(s) who play Adso (Cybill and Bob). Now… we book readers know that SPOILER this is not actually goodbye – they do see Adso again but maybe they’ll have a new actor playing Adso by then?

My question about an older Jemmy was answered shortly after Ep 703 aired, when the new older Mandy and Jemmy were announced. Rosa Morris will play Little Mandy, and Blake Johnston Miller plays Kid Jemmy.
(which presumably means we say goodbye to the twins Matthew and Andrew- who have played Jem since they were tiny).
Neither the new Mandy nor the new Jem have the coloring of the kids in the books, but I have complete faith in Suzanne Smith and team to have cast the best actors for the roles.
Tash pointed out that the new Jemmy is one of the blond boys from this adorable Omaze fundraising video with Sam from 2019. I was curious which of the blond boys it would be, so I did a little research, and it turns out these two boys are brothers – Caleb and Blake Johnston Miller. Blake (the younger one, who defers to his older brother about how to flirt) is playing Jemmy this season. Based on Caleb’s personality in this video, he would certainly make a stellar Germain! Both boys recently acted in “The Devil’s Hour” on Amazon prime.
Sam and Omaze for MPC (Blake is in the blue, and Caleb is in the grey).
Since we lost the Big House in this episode, I thought I’d post this tour by Sam through John Gary Steele’s wonderful set one more time…
This is not specific to Ep 703, but is a nice walk down memory lane…
Speaking of how young John Bell was when he started on Outlander, this photo came up from this date in 2018, in Paris. Look at Wee John Bell!! Lots of life has happened since then, for all of us…
