THE COUNTDOWN TO OUTLANDER S4 CONTINUES!
News: The official Season 4 opening credits and the music was released on October 6th during an Outlander panel at the NYCC. Bear McCreary masterfully creates the connection to the colonial south of America by once again altering The Skye Boat song to reflect where the story is going while maintaining its Scottish roots. The credits also combine the familiar beginning with snippets from the season that include the sweeping expanse of River Run, the backcountry cabin on Fraser’s Ridge, Brianna touching the stone at Craigh na Dun, traditional dancing, a handfasting, and more.
Outlander stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Richard Rankin, and Sophie Skelton, producers, Maril Davis, and Ron D. Moore, and writer Diana Gabaldon were at the NYCC doing autographs and participating in panels. The official Outlander panel audience members were even surprised with a showing of S4 E1.
Onto the prep for S4…Rewatch Season 3 episodes 1-3 then listen to the podcast for my thoughts.
Here are the episode synopses from Outlander Starz to refresh your memories:
Ep 301 The Battle Joined – After living through the Battle of Culloden, Jamie is at the mercy of British victors, until his past provides his only hope of survival. Meanwhile, a pregnant Clarie attempts to adjust to life in 1940’s Boston.
Ep 302 Surrender – Hiding in a cave, Jamie leads a lonely life until Lallybroch is threatened by redcoats pursuing the elusive Jacobite traitor. In Boston, Claire and Frank struggle to coexist in a marriage haunted by the ghost of Jamie.
Ep 303 All Debts Paid – In prison, Jamie discovers that an old foe has become the warden – and has the power to make his life hell. Claire and Frank both put their best foot forward in marriage, but an uninvited guest shatters the illusion.
