He's not perfect — though TV Frank is definitely better! But I do think that he got dealt a really bad hand in the series and I feel like I never really see that conversation happening. What gives? Is it just because he is no Jamie? The man's wife disappeared and came back pregnant by another man and he stuck by her. All while not committing her, which let's be honest, would have been the most rational thing to do.
He's definitely displayed some toxic traits throughout Claire's memories of him. And I'm not excusing those moments at all. But just looking back at his time as a whole, he really got dealt a bad hand!
According to Variety, sources have confirmed an Outlander prequel spinoff is in development at Starz !!
Starz and Sony wouldn't comment, but Variety's sources say Matt Roberts is behind it (and Ron Moore & Maril Davis will still be executive producers).
There's been rumblings of a spinoff for years, but I'm most interested in the fact that it's labeled as a "prequel."
Like, do the Lord John Grey stories technically count as "prequels"? Or is this going to be about Jamie's parents + Murtagh?! I'm not sure how I'd feel about that since Diana hasn't written that story yet. Same goes with a Master Raymond story, though I'd love to see more time travelers.
There's also Virgins, with a young Jamie and Ian Murray — but would Sam have the time/interest in that? Steven Cree hasn't been opposed to staying in the Outlander universe, but they're both a bit old to play 19 & 20-year-olds. And would that be enough content for a series? There's other short stories from Diana, but again — they're part of the Outlander timeline, so are they "prequels"?
OR is Roberts going to use his creative control to create a story that Diana hasn't written/planned to write?!
What would you like to most see out of an Outlander prequel??
Do you think you had a hard time accepting Roger because of your established love for Jamie? I don't feel the need to compare these two male characters, but I know a lot of people didn't like Roger when he came onto the scene as a main character because of their differences.
Maybe it's because I'd be farrrrrr more compatible with Roger than Jamie (don't hate me! that just gives all you Jamie lovers one less person to fight over him with). And it's not like Roger hasn't disappointed me at times (Show Roger a whole lot more than Book Roger). But so has Jamie! I guess I'm just content to let Claire & Jamie's relationship and Brianna & Roger's relationship be their own separate things and not compare these two dudes.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but we haven't had a Sam Heughan dating rumor in a long time, and now suddenly Outlander Season 6 has premiered, and Sam's been spotted kissing a "mystery woman" in New York City? This seems all too conveniently timed but fine, I'll bite. I don't even care if it's Sam's new girlfriend of a PR plant, I just wanna know who she is so I can shake her hand. She's about to take off. And/orr, unfortunately, get a lot of very lovely hate mail from rabid fans.
And here's what E! News says about the "mystery woman" he was spotted kissing in Soho: In photos obtained exclusively by E! News, the 41-year-old Scottish actor was seen having lunch at Café Select in New York's Soho neighborhood with a mystery woman. Although some pictures suggest it was just two friends hanging out, cameras ultimately caught the pair sharing a kiss at one point in the meal.
And when it comes to who he's dated in the past....
Here's what Us Weekly says about his dating history: Unlike his onscreen counterpart’s steamy romance with Claire, Heughan has remained relatively tight-lipped about his own dating history, though he has previously been linked with MacKenzie Mauzy, Cody Kennedy and Abbie Salt. Us Weekly later confirmed in July 2018 that he was seeing Twin Peaks actress Amy Shiels

Does anyone know who she is? And do we feel like it's real, or a publicity play to promote the end of Droughtlander.
I think this is something us book readers and non-book readers can discuss together...
I was SO convinced that the house fire that Brianna and Roger read about in the newspaper had to happen in Season 6. (I mean, the season's based on a book called A Breath of Snow and ASHES, what else are we to think?) But now I'm feeling like the show already has so much to pack in with just 8 eps, it's not going to happen. What are you all thinking about Season 6 + that highly-anticipated house fire that allegedly kills Claire and Jamie?!
Has everyone recovered from Caitríona not getting an Oscar nomination for Belfast? Especially when she was majorly predicted to get a Best Supporting one?! I know it's not a competition between them, but it does feel off that Judi Dench got it when Caitríona was so critical to the emotional weight of the movie. At least Ma can take comfort knowing the same thing happened to Jamie Dornan with Ciarán Hinds ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
