25 Days of #Outlander – Day 1: SEASON 2 TRAILER

With the release of the first official Outlander Season 2 Teaser Trailer, Outlander Starz announced the beginning of its 25 Days of #OutlanderOfferings. Leading up to the Christmas day Season 1 marathon, we’ll be receiving never-before-seen Season 2 photos, cast interviews, holiday recipes and chances to win special Outlander store items!

In the event you missed the trailer because you were hiding in a cave, under a rock, on the moon or just plain hiding from social media, here it is for your viewing pleasure.

Outlander Season 2 is based on Diana Gabaldon‘s second novel in the series:

Dragonfly in Amber

***** SPOILERS ahead. Skip to the next section if you want to go into Season 2 blind.

Like all of Diana’s novels, DIA is chock full of wallops – all of which must fit into 13 measly episodes. Of course, most of the major character developments were well taken care of in Season 1 – Claire, Jamie, Randall(s), Murtagh, Dougal, Colum, Rupert and Angus – but there are more than a few new notables still to come.

It’s difficult to select what scenes I’m most excited to see and who I’m most eager to meet in Season 2. Two of the most obvious are Brianna Randall, Claire’s daughter, and Roger Wakefield, the great-great-great-great-etc grand-love child of Dougal MacKenzie and Geillis Duncan. But Lord John Grey, being a personal favorite of mine, ranks his introduction rather high, though the actor for Season 2 is too young to play the fully grown character in Season 3.

Given Jonathan Randall’s stealing of every scene in Season 1, I feverishly await his return in Season 2 – particularly his reunion with Jamie and the duel on the Bois de Boulogne. And how will the show handle what transpires between Randall and Fergus? I’m already cowering behind the couch.

Claire must be braver than she’s ever been, in Season 2. I’m rarin’ to watch her intrigues with historical and powerful characters she’s only read about in history books but now must face and outwit.

Of course, Terry Dresbach‘s sumptuous costumes are almost as big as the characters themselves. The peek we receive in the teaser trailer already has me salivating.

And it’s no surprise Jon Gary Steele has topped himself in Season 2. Given what he did with Lallybroch, I can’t wait to see the entire French palace and court. More salivating.

Ron Moore blew us away with Season 1. So far, Season 2 looks like nothing is held back. Not shying away from Diana’s material, he’s already pushed beyond traditional television boundaries. Oh, what can we expect next?

***** End of SPOILERS.

As is my signature, here are my Top 10 Selects for the Outlander Season 2 Trailer.

#10: Jamie’s Highway Robbery

Poor Jamie looks in the direst of straits. I’ll bet two francs, it’s all a mistake.

Remember what happened to Claire last time? Hopefully, young Alex will come to dine.

You’re from the future, he said with a smirk. You tell me what happens to spies who do lurk?

#7: Murtagh’s Gentleman Prefers Brunettes

Murtagh cleans up with his hair all slicked flat. How cute Claire looks in her Paul Revere hat.

#6: Claire’s Little Yellow Riding Hood

Claire goes to market in her riding hood. Where can I buy one? Oh, I wish I could.

#5: Jacobite’s Charging the English

The Jacobites charge from out of the fog, not knowing disaster waits in the bog.

05 OL S2 battle

#4: Claire and Jamie’s At the Graveside

Claire in mourning. For who, we can’t guess. Another two francs, Ron’s messing with us.

#3: Jamie and Claire’s Having a Moment

Jamie and Claire are in bed with their clothes? What’s wrong with this picture, I’d like to knows?

#2: Claire and Jamie’s Having a Baby

Is this where Jamie learns how to induce? Oops. That’s Fergus, who faire le bête à deus dos.

  1. Love this, Candida! Do you really think the grave could be a fake out? Jamie’s in black too…just sayin’. And can I just say how truly happy I am that they kept Murtagh in Paris! Fingers crossed for other Murtagh changes in the future.

    1. Thank you, fraochjean! The grave scene seems too obvious to me to be who we think it is. Plus, it requires a change to the storyline, not that it can’t be done. It’s anything goes on an adaptation. Mostly, I was just having fun with the pix. Murtagh looks very handsome. Going to hate the opening to Season 3. :o(

      1. Oh yes – Season 3! Thanks for the chuckle here. That was fun. Now the grave scene – you know, Ron Moore does put in his own little surprises and twists and turns – I expect it is what we think it is, so guess he would have “added” that little tid bit. Who else? Hmmmm……One could go mad waiting – what – another 4 or 5 months! Brutal. Keep these coming though. It’s all great fun and enhances the adventure. Love it.

        1. So glad you enjoyed, Lisa. Yes, I’m not going to assume anything about that grave scene. If it is you-know-who’s, would Ron put it in the trailer? Like I said, he’s messing with us, methinks. :oP
