Happy Friday afternoon, evening or Saturday morning for some. Those of you who follow this blog know I’m a sucker for that Jamie Fraser, I openly admit it! And the story of their love, and their and life ?.
Diana wrote a post about whose story it is, (in the books), and here’s a quote from her about that:
“…if you’re looking at the structure of the story, then yeah, it’s Jamie’s story as told by (and lived with) Claire.
(See full post here: – Diana’s Facebook Post.)
The show is being written and portrayed as Claire’s story, with Jamie as the love of her life, of course, but Claire is the main character. I absolutely loved Season 1, and if that is the show’s version of Claire’s story, keep it coming!
As I’ve said before, and say often, I just want the two main characters to remain in character with respect to who they are in the books. Over the course of last season, I realized it’s also important to me that the time periods themselves are portrayed realistically, and that the characters say and do things that are true to the period from which they come, and make sense for the time period in which they find themselves. That’s a tall order, with all the characters from different periods converging. It’s no longer just Claire, in 1743, those were simpler times. The impact of the Starz Premium Woman agenda remains to be seen for Season 5, we shall see.
I am ever hopeful that this incredible story has found a way to stay true to itself in the making of Season 5.
In case you hadn’t heard, they just did the table read for the last two episodes – 511, written by Diana, Herself – YES!!!!!!!!!!, and 512, written by Matt and Toni, YES!!!!!!! This means they will be filming those episodes over the next month, as each episode takes about 2 weeks to film. After the Christmas holidays, we will have a month and a half to wait. Squeeeeeeeeee.
For now, enjoy this beautifully done video, which honors Jamie Fraser, and quite frankly, the man who gives his heart and soul playing him, Sam Heughan. I love this story!!! (Thanks to Diana for posting, and for Outlander Anatomy for finding this!)

Have a wonderful weekend, wishing you well. xo
