We are days away from the second to the last episode of Starz highly acclaimed series, Outlander (starring Sam Heughan). Book readers have been looking forward to these episodes with a mixture of dread and curiosity. Will the writers, producers, and actors do justice to one of the most graphic scenes ever written? Those lucky enough to have viewed the last two episodes have said that the episodes left them, “sobbing, gasping for breath.”
Starz has declared #BlackJackIsBack the official hashtag for Episode 115, which has left some viewers unsure whether they want to use a hashtag that touches on such a sensitive plot point. But, we are left wondering how graphic these two episodes will actually be. You’ll find no spoilers here, however, early media reports suggest that even book readers will be shocked by the events that unfold.
Needless to say, you’ll find me huddled in bed, clutching a box of tissues…just in case.
