Hosts Mary and Blake discuss the Outlander season three premiere, episode 3.01 , entitled, “The Battle Joined.” In this episode, you’ll learn all about why the is quite nearly the perfect episode of Outlander, why nobody from Boston is that nice, why we’re glad to see Bonnie Prince Charlie and his sippy cup get it in the head, the art of ratcheting up tension only to have it deflate and return again, building on momentum from from 2.13, what to look for in directors, we discuss where Murtagh might be, Blake’s favorite bit of cinematography the show has offered so far, calling out the fantastic editing, why the the Black Jack Randall and Jamie fight didn’t need dialogue, and three fantastic Outlandish theories of the week and much more!

Fantastic web site. Lots of useful information here. I’m sending it to a few friends ans also sharing in delicious. And of course, thanks for your sweat!
Seriously, most of us would have been jumping up and down that Ross was killed off. Ross was around for all of 30 minutes in 6 eps. Who cares what happens to him. Plus the actor is annoying as heck. He’s trying to build a career on 30 minutes of screen time in very minor role. If he spent as much time pursuing acting projects instead of following and unfollowing people on Twitter he’d be the star of his own show by now. Sheesh.
My thoughts on your comments –
Ross was from Lallybroch and would have left with Murtagh, per Jamie’s orders..I hope he lived a long and happy life.
BJR lying on Jamie served as a pressure bandage to his leg….it didn’t stop the bleeding but slowed it. It never occurred to me that he would not have been left lying that long…good point!
I love Grant O’Rourke! His performance and the part written for Rupert in the farmhouse – marvelous!
The grass tuft was already churned up by a horse or cannon wagon, Jamie just grabbed it and used it – that’s different than if he had yanked it out of the ground.
Sam’s acting was the pinnacle of this episode. To convey so much with so little action and dialogue – beautifully done.
Thanks so much!
