Outlander boss addresses ‘concern’ over Jamie Fraser story in midseason finale

Outlander, an epic series on Starz, is taking a break following a stormy midseason finale that saw the show’s hero thrust into a perilous predicament.Fans are feeling the effects of the Droughtlander, and many are searching for some respite.

Fortunately, Starz has an official podcast where fans can catch tidbits from the most recent season and gain some behind-the-scenes knowledge about how the program is made.

During an episode, Sam Heughan’s character Jamie Fraser’s hand injury raised concerns for both him and the rest of the team, according to Outlander’s supervisor Matthew B. Roberts.

Jamie in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander books had to have a finger removed after it was shattered so severely in the second Battle of Saratoga.But in the show, Claire Fraser (Caitríona Balfe), Jamie’s medic wife, saved her finger because of her understanding of medicine in the 20th century.

Roberts added, “We knew we were going to have some issues with the hand,” in reference to the scene in the TV show.The injury in the book is really serious, and we were aware that there wasn’t enough runway to allow for the ideal healing.

“That was always a concern because we had to jump time in the episode.”

“We had a lot of meetings about the hand, how it was going to look initially, how the healing process was going to go forward, the scars, and everything,” the speaker continued.

    • Don’t glorify this guy! He has some physical attributes, but has limited (but improving) acting skills. I think Catriona gave up so much to because of her love? for him..I hope she does not regret her choices. Time will tell.
      As you can tell, I love her!

  1. No longer interested
    in Jamie (Sam) his moral conduct ande
    The ADULTERY by
    Catriona has sickened
    Me. They need to apologize openly
    To those of us who (love)? them. 😓☹️😢😢

  2. How about respecting loyal viewer’s that watched Outlander on Netflix when nobody even knew what it was. I watched all seasons and now only on Starz so you pay for it now. Not cool!
