It’s Back! Outlander Season 2 #ViveOutlander

Can I just say that I am so incredibly excited that Outlander Season 2 premieres this coming Saturday, April 9th? As many of you know, I have been following this show since the very early casting days in 2013, was blessed to attend and write about the Outlander Red Carpet World Premiere for the show in San Diego in 2014. Writing reviews of the Season One episodes was grueling because there’s so much to write about each week, but I’m so glad to have spent the time doing it, really digging into a story I love. This series is based on one of the most amazing series of novels I’ve ever encountered, and if you’ve never read the Outlander Books by Diana Gabaldon, you are missing out! They are long in length, but you’ll find yourself waiting anxiously for Gabaldon to publish the next book in the epic series. If you don’t currently have STARZ, another way to watch the new episodes of the series is through Amazon Prime Streaming! This is actually a really good deal, and they’re currently offering a free trial. Click this banner to get the deal. Outlander Season 2 promises to be as amazing as…

Now if Huff Post would only start accepting my work again…. Have you been watching Outlander???

Images of a beautiful Scottish waterfall appear at the beginning of Outlander Episode 109, showing water rushing over rocks and waves colliding into one another. This imagery foreshadows the conflicts in the episode that will occur between multiple factions over many situations. Although these conflicts aren’t all directly connected, they all affect other situations in the episode. As Jamie’s voiceover ponders the importance of choices that people make in their lives, he skips stones in a slower-moving section of the stream. The ripples from a stones’ landing signifies the impact that each of our choices have on life and those around us. Jamie cites that knowing his actions as a man will not only affect him, but also those around him, and Claire in particular, was when he became a man. Jamie finally meets with Horrocks, a British Army deserter that has knowledge of who shot a sergeant at Fort William, for which Jamie has been framed. After being given the gold demanded for this information, Horrocks reveals that Black Jack Randall was the murderer. The MacKenzies dispute that even Randall, as vile as he is, wouldn’t shoot…
