Outlander - Season 3

"You gave Jamie up for me. Now I have to give him back to you." - Bree

'Voyager', the title of the third book, which was written by Diana Gabaldon and which laid the foundation for the third season of the show. I specifically say that it's only the foundation for the show, as there was quite a big fuss on social media about several things that happened in the series, but didn't happen in the book. The series is only based on the books. The books are just the books and the series is just the series. I will focus on the series, to be more specific, the third season of this beautiful and magnificent show.

First a short recap. In the final episode of season two it is shown that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) has aged quite a bit and that her daughter, Brianna (Sophie Skelton), has already turned 20 years old. They meet Roger (Richard Rankin, Thirteen) and it is shown that Jamie sends Claire back through the stones to her own time. And this is how the final episode and first episode meet and it comes full circle. Jamie (Sam Heughan) wants to die on the battlefield of Culloden, because he knows that Claire and their child will move on with their lives.

There is still a price on Jamie's head.

Season three continues where season 2 ended, with both main characters in their own world. Jamie is alone at the stones and Claire, who's also pregnant, arrives in Boston alongside Frank (Tobias Menzies, Game of Thrones). Jamie fights his way to his demise, but is luckily saved. But Jamie doesn't want to live a life without Claire. He is being hunted, as there is still a price on the head of 'Red Jamie'. Luckily he meets someone from his past, who helps him to survive.

In Boston in the 1940s, Claire gives birth to her and Jamie's daughter, Brianna. As well as she can, she tries to live her life with Frank and her daughter. She goes through her routines, but eventually in the 1950s she decides to start studying to become a doctor. However, in the 50s it most certainly wasn't easy for a woman to start studying and build a career.

Nonetheless, she becomes a success at the hospital she works at. When fate knocks on her door, she decides to go back to Scotland and tell Brianna all about her father, Jamie. Brianna makes a big decision. Once before, her mother gave up her life for Brianna, but this time Brianna would give up her mother so that she could find her love once again. A mission to find Jamie begins.

The first half of season three consists mostly of Jamie and Claire living their separate lives. How do you cope if you lose the love of your life, how do you build a whole new life, without being able to forget each other. Outlander wouldn't be Outlander if it didn't work out the right way. How, when and where is really something you have to see for yourself.

A part of Outlander has been filmed in South Africa, where they were able to use the cast, crew and sets of the Starz show Black Sails. This can be seen in the second part of the season. The season starts off calm and quiet, a little bit of progression here and there. The second half, on the other hand, is an absolute roller coaster, with an ending that makes us want a lot more of Outlander. Luckily we'll get more, as the 4th season is currently being made.

Season three was absolutely beautiful, with a wonderful story. Various emotions get thrown at you as if it's nothing. Especially the sad moments and the famous 'printshop' scene provide the necessary tears and goosebumps. Nonetheless, I managed to find something less good as well. In my opinion, there's too much of a focus on Claire as a doctor. I am a person who doesn't need to watch the same thing over and over again. I would've preferred if the writers would've focused more on Claire and Jamie.

Droughtlander, the time in between seasons of Outlander, has started once again.

Season three adds various new faces to the cast. Cesar Domboy will portray the adult version of Fergus, John Bell will star as Young Ian and we get to see a bit of Marsali (Lauren Lyle) who will play a big role in seasons three and four. This season was beautiful, exciting, warm and at times even a bit sexy. Droughtlander, the time in between seasons of Outlander, has started once again. It will be quite some time for the fourth season to arrive, which is expected to be somewhere in fall 2018.

The first three seasons of Outlander can currently be seen on the Dutch version of Netflix.
