Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe reveal that the opening scene of Outlander Season 1B will air ahead of Black Sails‘ season premiere this Saturday, January 24 on STARZ.
Actually, surprise might be too strong of a word—-earlier this month during the STARZ/Outlander Television Critics Association panel, it was announced that a new one minute Outlander season 1B sneak peek would air with the Black Sails premiere on Saturday, January 24. With that said, we weren’t really sure what that sneak peek might be.
Well, yesterday Outlander‘s official twitter account shared this video of Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) and Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser) confirming the upcoming sneak preview and giving us some details. This Saturday, before Black Sails‘ season 2 premiere, STARZ will air the opening scene of “The Reckoning,” Outlander‘s mid-season premiere episode (season 1, episode 9)!
FYI: I need Sam to always use the word “squee.” And, in truth, this news really does make me squee with excitement!
Will Episode 9 pick up right where we left off, with Jamie pointing a pistol at Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), who has Claire practically naked and prostrate on the table? Will there be a bit of a time jump? Perhaps we’ll go back a little into the past so we can see the process of Jamie finding out the Claire has been taken by BJR…
In any event, we’ll find out soon! Make sure to make a note on your calendars, set your DVRs, and tune into STARZ for this awesome treat on Saturday, January 24 (TWO DAYS AWAY!) at 9:00pm.
