AFTERBUZZ TV — Outlander edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of Starz’s Outlander. In this show, hosts Adrian Snow, Rachel Goodman, and Emily Harlan break down the episode 5.

Outlander is an American-British television drama series based on the historical time travel Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon. Developed by Ronald D. Moore and produced bySony Pictures Television and Left Bank Pictures for Starz, the show premiered on August 9, 2014. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married World War II nurse in 1945 who finds herself transported back to Scotland in 1743, where she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite risings.

In 1945, former World War II nurse Claire Randall and her husband Frank are visiting Inverness, Scotland. Exploring the standing stones at Craigh na Dun, Claire faints after she touches the highest stone, and awakes to find herself in the middle of what appears to be a skirmish between Redcoats and rebel Scottish Highlanders. Rescued from an attack by Frank’s sinister double, Redcoat Captain Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall, she uses her medical training to help the injured Scotsman Jamie Fraser. Claire realizes that Randall is Frank’s ancestor, and that she seems to have traveled backward in time to 1743. Her skills earn her a place at Castle Leoch as a healer, but she is a veritable prisoner of Clan MacKenzie and cannot travel to the stones to try to return to her own time. Claire and Jamie get closer, and she comes to understand that the Scotsmen are covertly collecting funds for the Jacobite army. Knowing from history that their cause is destined to fail and many Highlanders will die, Claire tries to warn them off. She learns that Randall and Jamie have a bitter history, and Jamie marries Claire to protect her from the sadistic Randall. Claire and Jamie realize they have feelings for each other, but she is still torn thinking about Frank. In 1945, Frank is losing hope that he will find Claire, just as she is delighting in her new marriage to Jamie in the past. Both finally ready to accept that they are lost to each other, circumstance brings Frank and Claire to the standing stones, two centuries apart. They hear each other calling through time, but before Claire can touch the stones she is captured again by Randall’s men.

    could the bones be of Geiliss?

    Yes the bones are foreshadowing. They do have adventures in the Carribean on the way to America

    The bones belong to Geillis Duncan.

    Great aftershow ladies! The Jamie's fainting may be my new favorite Outlander moment. I new that's coming but still took me by surprise how well done was. I wonder in how many takes they got it. Bree is becoming more likable by episode. She wasn't my favorite character in the books but I hopped that with good writting and acting that will change, I think they'll get there. And I absolutely love the time transition, the pond thing was brilliant. As much as was desperate for their encounter I was enjoying every moment like Claire. This two weeks are going to be the longest of my life 🙁
    I heard that it was a decision from the Sartz people not the producers, to built expectation.
    Oh how they are playing with our feelings it better be a killer episode!

    When Joe brought out the bones, part of me thought they might be Claire's. Then they mentioned that the woman would've been in her 40s so that rules Claire out. Might be a character we haven't met yet?

    I loved this episode! Thanks for reviewing ladies. This was the first time I really enjoyed watching Bree – previously I only liked Roger – and I was happy to see more Claire/Joe and Claire/Bree. I got what Bree was going through re: her education, considering how Frank-centric her life has been. She should be studying engineering or architecture instead of history, if/when she returns to school. Also shout-out to her Harvard professor, Lord Merton from Downton Abbey! I bust out laughing when Jamie fainted and Claire gasped (I agree re: the gender swapped faint). It was perfectly timed and so savage of them to end it there.

    Robert Burns, wrote a poem in 1786, with the phrase "Freedom an whisky gang thegither!" It's not a modern poem.

    I only now detected your afterbuzz for Outlander and I love it. Will be regular viewer! I loved it that you girls are unspoiled, it's so great so hear your impressions on the various storylines. See you next episode with PRINTSHOP!!!!!

    Am I the only one who was like "take a picture of Brianna so that Jamie can see her!!!!!!"

    Bones are from later book….

    One of these girls suggests that women couldn't divorce men back in the 1940s. This couldn't be further from the truth. Of course women could divorce their husbands at this point in history. My great-grandmother kicked my great-grandfather to the curb in 1918.

    Jamie is 23 and Claire 27 at the beginning and they age at the same rate so when she comes back she's 50 and he's 46.

  14. Judy Todd

    There is a four year age difference between Claire and Jamie !

  15. Susan Stein

    Did you notice how much younger and radiant Claire looked after she went back in time to find Jamie? She also looked somehow harder and over made up in 1968.

    You all seem so bored and low energy. Maybe try reading the book. Would give you more insight.

    Claire told Frank to Divorce her.

  18. Yankee Poodle

    Jamie is 5 years younger. He was 22 and she was 27. So that makes him now 45 and Claire 50.

    I think that the CandyClaire moment was to show how Claire matured and was more calm. I was waiting for that slap or the drink in the face though too. I agree though she was blaming Claire for their unhappiness. She had no right. The bones: I think they belong to Gellis.

    Please tell me those ancient bones they were examining were not Claire. If they were that would be a valid reason for her daughter to jump back into the past to warn her.

    The show didn't get into it enough or clearly enough but part of the reason Bree is failing is because she's realizing her heart isn't in history! She's discovering who she is after the summer's incidents. She should be pursuing engineering, hence the failing. Also, as a book reader who loves Roger, this episode had me liking Bree way more than in the books and I felt like we were steaming full force ahead and the ep went by SO fast! I'm SO sad there's no more Roger and Bree until Season 4. :"(

    Remember matchmaking Jenny??

  23. Racquel Morgan

    Unlike Claire not to speak up to Sandy/Candy

  24. Racquel Morgan

    Frank was sterile – no choice his ony kid

    DG Doesn’t write anyone as well as Claire and Jamie: their intimacy, their passion, their respect, their understanding. Joe is married, has kids, his last name is important Bree & Rog are great apart; don’t like them as a couple- he’s like a fish out of water !

  26. Racquel Morgan

    October 12, 2017 4:30 am

    As you can tell Bree is an artist and innovative. Don’t they offer engineering at Harvard?

  27. Racquel Morgan

    Jamie is 4 year younger than Claire and they gave him gray sideburns

  28. TheCakeLady

    October 12, 2017 4:30 am

    they don't include anything in a show that isn't important! Remember the bones 😉

  29. TheCakeLady

    I like the Brianna character (and the actress that plays her). I think her and Roger play off each other well and the actors have a great chemistry together

    My thought on why they included the whole Sandy/Mandy/Candy speech was her comment about Frank being the love of her life and her wishing she could have one more day with him – Jamie was/is the love of Claire's life, she has the chance to have more time with him but is struggling with the decision to take it.
