In New York City we had the privilege of seeing episode 301 on a large screen, with lots of other Outlander fans. It was STUNNING. Really. I cannot wait to watch it again, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it so we can TALK about it. The writing, the performances (with some surprises and additions), the sets and locations, the costumes, the cinematography, the direction, the editing… once again it all comes together in a perfectly orchestrated masterpiece.
It was a pleasure to see old friends, meet new ones, and spend some moments on the red carpet with our spectacular leads. Of course, it was an adventure getting there, as usual!
The song that accompanies the first part of this video is an excerpt from Poisonous Shadows by Outlander celebrity fan Dave Mustaine and his band, Megadeth. Sam and Tobias’s performances in episodes 115 and 116 (think Season 1, the Wentworth dungeon ? if you’re having trouble remembering) were in part, the inspiration for this song.
Without further ado, enjoy a glimpse of what went on in NYC this past week, and my wee Q&A with Sam and Caitriona…
