Question: I’m not going to be able to handle the break after Outlander‘s finale. Give me something to tide me over until next year? –Molly
Ausiello: First, pace yourself. You’ve got one episode to savor before the midseason hiatus. Second, if you haven’t read the books, this next bit is a spoiler. Proceed accordingly. Third, how about a little intel on Season 2? The Starz series is casting Brianna Randall, whom fans of Diana Gabaldon’s novels know is Jamie and Claire’s 20-year-old daughter. Bree – who was raised in Boston and who calls Frank Randall her dad — is smart, strong-minded, practical, funny and stunningly beautiful (like her folks). Start your dream casting in the comments!
Question: Any spoilers on Outlander would be greatly appreciated. This is definitely my favorite show of the summer!! —Elizabeth
Ausiello: We checked in with Sam Heughan just as he was wrapping the second half of Season 1. As book readers know [SPOILER ALERT!], Jamie suffers some spirit- and body-crushing injuries toward the end of the novel; as such, Heughan said viewers of the Starz adaptation should brace themselves. “It just gets stronger and stronger in the last few episodes — not just Wentworth Prison, which is very intense and I’m very pleased with how it’s come out. I think it’s going to be some insane viewing.”
