Hello to all!

I just watched it! I must really say the war scene were very eye openinig .. it is one thing reading such war action .. another seeing it. Really man to man fight ..

They stuck very much to the books! The interactions between Claire and Frank were great as well as all the stupid men not respecting Claire! Very difficult age .. the 60ties!

Even Lord Melton we did see .. I didn´t expect to see him!

The last scene is so ... cruel ...

Well, I will watch it again anytime soon!

What a great episode.Very emotional in every part. Great acting by Caitriona, Sam and Tobias. I think the fighting scene between Jamie and Black Jack is very well done. You could see all the emotions in the faces of both of them.
Looking forward to see ep 2 next week.

Watching now, but really Shaw moved it from Showcase to
W network and the commercials are even worse. 2-3 scenes and 9 commercials all the way through. Can't wait to watch without the damned commercials.

instead of cleaning my bathroom today when I had the house to myself i sat in front of the Tv and watched it.
It was an excellent first episode and I can see that it could hook new viewers in really easily.

It was a great start for season 3 . It is such a pity that in Germany we again will watch a version which is dubbed in a very poor way. There is nothing like the original.
Thanks for uploading. I`m looking forward for E2.

this was one of the best episodes of all 3 seasons

Inverness is the nearest city to where I live, where a church has been converted to a second hand book shop. There is a plaque there which reminds everyone that Jacobite prisoners were shot against the church wall and this episode made that sense of horror and futility so real

It's not a change I'm proposing, and perhaps I missed it in the first episode, but it seemed that Murtagh's fate was/is unknown. So wouldn't it be grand if the show runners deviated from the books and Murtagh survived Culloden. It's only a forlorn hope and we'll find out soon enough, but until then.

They didnt show what happened to him, I thought in the books we dont learn that he died until he told Claire later on in Voyager. We will have to wait and see Smile

What ever happened to Murtaugh

Post by Scrappylind on Sun 17 Sep - 1:09:02

I picture a woman with a cart going from body to body looking for her man. She stops at a tall area of grass where she hears a groan. She peers in and finds Murtaugh, unconscious and badly hurt. She looks around for soldiers then loads him in the wagon. She takes him home and nurses him back to health. Because of the head wound, he doesn't remember things at first but gradually it returns. He stays there, thinking his past life is over. His memory eventually comes back and with it, worries of what happen to all at Lallybroch. He decides to travel there and he brings his handfast wife with him. It's there he finds out that Jamie and Claire are still alive and they and Fergus have traveled to the Colonies. He and his wife travel there too and are reunited on Frasier's Mountain.

Although I like the actor who played Murtagh and that his performance was wonderful.  I feel that allowing him to survive would be too much of a change from the books.  Besides I think they can create more of an emotional storyline of Jamie having to deal with being one of the few to survivor of the battle and loss of so many friends and family.

I love it! After all, if you can time travel, why not make just one infinitesimal change, and screw the butterflies.

Interesting scrappy, Smile thank you for sharing

I too think it is better however if he died in relation to how the later books play out.
