The first episode of Outlander Season 3 opens with the Battle in Culloden following the third book titled Voyager. The author reveals spoilers of a scene where Sam Heughan looked “freaking scary.”
Outlander is based from the bestselling book series of the same name by Diana Gabaldon. According to International Business Times AU, Wanda Serrano tweeted some spoilers of Season 3 exposed by Gabaldon herself.
The post written by Gabaldon states there is a scene right before the battle starts where Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) goes to the side of Prince Charles (Andrew Gower).
The prince cannot be bothered as he is busy admiring his silver cup and “gassing away” for his to-be victory. He confidently expects triumph and is already celebrating right before the battle.
Meanwhile, Jamie is “totally silent” while standing on the prince’s side. Shortly, he undresses to prepare for the battle to come. The Highland warrior is “very obviously slowly losing his mind as he does so.”
He is “preparing to meet his death” as the Highlanders are expected to lose the battle. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) had already told him about it. As a result, Jamie could not even pay attention to the man who is sending him there.
Gabaldon admitted Heughan looks “freaking scary” while doing the scene and hopes it will not be edited out.
Also, fans can breathe a sigh of relief because Jamie, as those who read the book knows, will not die – albeit gravely wounded.
At the same time, the show’s executive producer continues to tease fans with behind-the-scene photos. One photo shows a piece of land in Scotland while the other is a close up photo of a bark covered in moss. To what these pictures signify, we will sound find out when the show finally airs.
Previous spoilers revealed some new faces to join the show. César Domboy is set to play the young Fergus while John Bell and Wil Johnson join to take the roles of the young Ian and Joe Abernathy, respectively.
Outlander Season 3 is set to air some time in 2017 in Starz. Filming is underway while some cast are spotted in Glasgow.
