Haha! Well, I just could barely stomach the whole season, so I was glad this was the last episode so we could put the season out of its misery.
Yeah, you are right! The Ian native scenes, in fact all of those native scenes, were not gritty at all. And same here. I really like the moments in the book when Ian decides to stay with the natives, and all the emotion around it. Here, it was very rushed. Because the whole search was very rushed. We hardly got to see Jamie and Claire at all, let alone Ian. So, I didn’t feel as invested in the search and Ian staying as I did in the book. I am sad he’s gone for a while, and I can’t wait until he comes back again.
LOL Brianna running to Roger like GWTW. Haha! Yeah, that was definitely a cheese factory moment.
I really hope the next season spends more time showing the development & settlement of Fraser’s Ridge, and how Jamie is so torn about recruiting his settlers to fight in the Revolution. And how Claire sets up her surgery and is kept busy running it and developing better medicine and technology for herself. I really enjoyed all of that in the book, and I would like to get away from some of this soapy drama for a while, and back to the Jamie and Claire relationship stuff that makes it so special.
