Outlander fans, we are back this Sunday with another all new episode, aptly titled “Surrender”. The word surrender tends to imply that we were faced with a conflict, that we couldn’t “beat” and were forced to give up fighting. In other cases, and especially with Jamie and Claire in this episode, it was lent an altogether different meaning. Now be warned, I do write this with the knowledge of having read Voyager, so if you aren’t a book reader, beware of spoilers.
Two words exited my mouth when I finished watching the Outlander premiere, ‘The Battle Joined’: Good Lord. To be fair, it’s a phrase I often use when I witness something that doesn’t seem to have words that match an experience. Frankly, Outlander’s season 3 premiere was less an hour or so of television, and more an experience through Jamie and Claire’s eyes.
We did it, Outlander fans! This Droughtlander has been long and painful, but we braved through it and season 3 is finally upon us. Tonight, we will finally get to see what happened to Jamie and Claire after she went through the stones, back to her own time, and how they have fared for those long and lonely twenty years without each other.
Droughtlander is almost over, folks, and what a wait it has been! Before the new season gifts us with new scenes of all our favorites — and new favorites to come, I’m sure — I’d like to list what I’m most looking forward to when Outlander graces our screens.
