By Alexandria Ingham 


Like all other seasons, Outlander Season 6 is viewed with mixed reviews. It's not surprising, and there were elements that stood out to me that I immediately knew would be hated by the majority of fans of the first book. That's how it comes to this adaptation...

Reflection on the first episode of season 6: Memories 
By Beth Wesson  


While this is one of my favorite escape methods, I find that Outlander often reflects many truths about real life and our relationships with others. Souvenirs, the first installment of season 6, was no exception...

Women of consequence
By Beth Weson

HERE IS A MAN torn apart by conflict, with his second wife Laoghaire, and the love of his life, his heart and soul, Claire, his newly returned to him, First Wife.

Ye are Blood of my Blood, and Bone of my Bone. I give ye my Body, that we Two might be One. I give ye my Spirit, ’til our Life shall be Done.’

The connection between Claire and Roger
By Beth Wesson 


Right from the start, I saw a connection between Roger and Claire. Roger seemed to be able to "read" Claire... He recognized "who" she was as a person...

Outlander, a feminine look
By Bethany Latham 


So you won't find a comparison of the TV series to the book here; the Starz version is reviewed entirely for itself. In particular, I thought it might be worth taking a look to see how this historical series differs from some of its siblings in its perspective on one particular area: sex.

Geneva and Jamie, a beneficial blackmail
By Anna Zandegiacomo


A controversial scene for some fans, but which was obviously necessary to develop the sequel in the meticulous chronology of the adventures imagined by the author and without tarnishing Jamie's loyalty.

Prostheses for amputees
By Marianne Hatzfeld


One of the dramas described throughout the saga is the amputation of Fergus' arm when he was only a child. The drama when it happened, and the one he saw during his life as a disabled man.
It must be said that at that time, the prostheses were not yet very effective!

Diana plays with our emotions
By Gratianne Garcia


In an interview Diana Gabaldon, said she cried while writing a scene from "Scottish Prisoner"
It made me want to make a little non-exhaustive compilation, of these tender moments filled with love that punctuate the Outlander saga and make me melt

Cats, by Marianne Hatzfeld and The Cats of the Navy, by Françsoise Rochet


How did Adso manage to find, then find Claire, his mistress, in the forest, and just right when she first leaves, then when she returns after a very long absence?


In season 7 at the end of episode 8 “Turning Points”, when Claire, Jamie and Little Ian are on an English navy ship heading to Scotland, a cat passes in the corridor leading to the cabins. He is not there by chance.

Willam's injury
By Outlander Anatomy and adapted by Valérie Gay-Corajoud.

Do Ian's first actions and then Denzel's measures make sense, medically speaking?
This is what we are going to study here.

By Gratianne Garcia


A little reflection on this question from Claire which comes after a discussion with Jamie on commitment and non-violence. (about Denzell Hunter who enlisted to defend freedom while he was a Quaker). She wanted to confront Jamie with his contradictions. She knows that he loves life, his family and wants to live his love in peace but he is going to war.
