Outlander Cast Hosts Mary and Blake discuss everything YOU had to say about A. Malcolm.
In this episode, we chat more about Dorcas and Bubbies, the surprising controversy about Sam’s interpretation of “falling to pieces”, why many people loved this episode, but why we’re shocked a lot of people didn’t like it, we get hear from A LOT of new listeners (thank you by the way), how it makes our day, and much more!

First time listener – love the discussion. I loved the pace of the disrobe – loved Sam’s interpretation of how complex the emotions must be. 5 kilts.
Hello my favorite bloggers! Like so many others, loved, LOVED S3E6. Sam Heughan’s perfomance was exquisite at every turn. Sam’s take on “falling to pieces” was spot on for me considering all Jamie’s been hit with. Sam is the actor living the part versus the writer imagining the part and for me, that makes a big difference.
The only thought that occurred to me on the rewatching (now closing in on double-digits) is the transition of the conversation from Bree to Willie. Perhaps if Jamie had kept clutching the packet of Bree’s photos to his chest while walking over to the mantel to get Willie’s portrait, bringing them together in his hands while he told Claire or something like that. But I find no criticism in Sam’s choices. He’s the master.
Smokey was in the title card…episode 3(?) when Bree turned 16 (I can understand that the perfectly placed birthday cards were a distraction. Lol!)
Correction: All Debits Pays. Smokey is sleeping in front of the dining table…
In your conversation about whether Jamie knew the “F” word – in the book Dragonfly in Amber when Fergus asks to be beaten by Master (Jamie) for not taking care of Claire properly Jamie uses that word in a chain of explosives when he reasons that he has to beat Fergus so he (Fergus) could save face. He knew and said the word alright so the guy in the scene with Claire at the end could have used it during that time without being a time traveller.
God’s Tooth – maybe we need a Geordy’s Goiter rating for future cheezy/funny/WTF moments!
Also, I’m wondering if Blake is dressing up as BJR for Halloween (too soon? Frank maybe?) SCARY!
BTW, I grew up in Bellingham, which is a beautiful college town in the upper left corner of WA, where they
often get exposed to Canadian British accents. Wish you would have your kids sing Sky Boat Song again
in Boston accents!
In regards to the F word…I swear I heard Black Jack use it to Claire in Wentworth Prison. I know absolutely that Claire said it in Season 2 in Untimely Resurrection when she said “fuck the king!” (she meant it quite literally!)
On another subject, I wanted to tell you I was rolling on the floor with your “Dorcas and Boobies,” comments.
On a fun note, I just read that the woman who invented the famous green bean casserole in 1955 was named Dorcas Riley!
I am going to be in hysterics for my Thanksgiving Dinner!
Thanks for the laugh, guys.
This is my first time to listen! I love your podcast! You two are smart and have excellent observations! You stay on track and have obviously read the books and understand adaptations as well. I give Episode a 4.7. I love the episode. I have watched it multiple times. Love, Love, Love it! I appreciate Sam’s interpretation of Jamie and the Bree photos. I didn’t expect him to fall to pieces, but I did think the writers rushed a bit to the Wille reveal. That said, I’m NOT disappointed. The acting was tremendous.
Regarding the “F” word…it was a word used in England from long before the 18th Century, but it wasn’t as well known in the Scottish Highlands (where the Gaelic was predominantly spoken). It’s reasonable then that Jamie may not have heard the word before hearing it from Claire, but BJR and the English exciseman that attacked Claire would have known it.
Also, is Kendra’s thought of the week missing from the Podcast? Mary & Blake introduced it, then dead air, then they praise it. I listen to the podcast on the Podcast app on my iPhone. Am I the only one?
I loved Episode 306 through and through…this season has been fantastic, and Sam & Cait phenomenal! I also love hearing the podcast analysis of Mary & Blake, as well as my fellow fans. Keep up the good work!
