Caitriona Balfe Tweets The Prestonpans Episode

Caitriona Balfe graciously tweeted during the 9pm ET airing of Prestonpans S2 E10. She shows ample love to her cast mates and crew alike. Her humor is never far behind. She’s a thoughtful one, Ms. Balfe.

You can watch and read-along with the list compiled tweets to get her scene by scene take. The italicized thoughts are my responses to her tweets.

  50. .@Stephen3827675 OKAY I asked for it !!!!!! I always asked for it from you. (The hidden love story between Claire and Angus) 💋💋💋💋 (We KNEW it! Heehee)

That was wonderful having Caitriona tweet along with us.  She brings her own well of compassion, strength, and sense of justice, to our beloved Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser. Her taking time to spend with the fans during a difficult episode is quite appreciated.

An incredible episode full of tense, generous, and funny moments. War is hell. It’s not glamorous or romantic. The anguish of waiting to see if your loved ones and friends return is well done.
