A Day in the Gathering TFC Week 1 Ep 165

The Fiery Cross

Week 1

Chapter 1

Before I begin the opening of TFC, I feel the need to address what we didn’t yet see in some form in S4 of the television show. Six chapters were not covered in the adapted material. And since Roger returned to River Run instead of the Ridge, they’ll be some changes to the order of things and surely some scenes will be omitted altogether.

  • Jamie and Brianna’s reconciliation.
  • Jamie bonding as a grandfather.
  • Lord John recuperating at River Run and traveling with the group until he was to turn toward Virginia.
  • Roger’s oath to the baby and claiming him as his own.
  • Roger and Jamie accepting each other.
  • Roger and Brianna hashing out their feelings and relationship while discovering who each other is now. Who doesn’t want to see Roger awkwardly stripping down the first time he is in Brianna’s intimate space while she breastfeeds the baby?
  • Roger becoming acquainted with his baby.
  • Claire and Jamie’s relationship advice to Roger.
  • The big house being built.
  • Jocasta getting engaged.
  • Naming the baby.
  • The beginning of the Gathering at Mt. Helicon. Days 1-4. OMG A listener brought up the idea that the writers could do away with the Gathering altogether!!! WHOA! 
    • Update from Young Ian.
    • Claire getting Frank’s ring back.
    • Reuniting Lizzie with her dad.
    • Jamie taking the baby gambling.
    • Claire doctoring folks.
    • The Highland Regiment
    • Roger disclosing the contents of Frank’s letter to the Reverend to Jamie.
    • Jamie making peace with Frank.
    • Calling of the Clans

How do you think the writers will fit it in? How do you think it will be adapted? What will end up being ignored?
