Just in case you had not quite heard just yet, “Outlander” is going in a pretty intense direction moving into Saturday’s episode “The Garrison Commander.”
At first, we imagine that there must have been at first of feeling of excitement to see Claire in a slightly different environment … at least at first. What we’re about to realize is that she may be in a situation so much more than anything she’s experienced yet in Scotland. This episode features a very lengthy conversation between Claire and Black Jack, and through this and other moments, you really get a sense of what sort of guy he really is.
Speaking to Zap2It, Tobias Menzies goes into some detail about the one thing that got so many people in this series from the get-go: The source material. He was not concerned about reading the first book, even though he knew it was told from Carrie’s perspective and would be inherently biased towards his character:
“I’ve read the first book and a couple of hundred pages of the second book. We’re very lucky to have a rather remarkable resource at our disposal with these very lovingly realized books that Diana [Gabaldon] has written. So absolutely, that was prime resource one. I suppose there is an actual bias that is often recounted by others who are probably not favorable to him. [ laughs] You get enough, about the world and what the writers are trying to conjure. And then the rest is about doing your own homework and building up the character and the world. Those were hugely helpful, the books.”
