“Outlander” Season 1 is still on hiatus, but fans are clamoring for new episodes after that shocking cliffhanger in the midseason finale. Unfortunately, they'll have to wait until spring to see new episodes. However, fans who read the books are one step ahead. They know most of what’s coming. While showrunner Ron Moore has added various changes to the source material, most fans seem to agree that he is following Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” books pretty closely. So what do readers know that TV fans don’t?
1. Claire Will Be Accused Of Witchcraft – It’s been made pretty clear that no one actually trusts Claire (Caitriona Balfe). While her marriage to Jamie (Sam Heughan) made life better, it didn’t mean that the people at Castle Leoch automatically trusted her. Her knowledge from the future may get her into trouble. In the books, she eventually is accused of witchcraft with Geillis (Lotte Verbeek). That isn’t really something people were laughing off in 18th century Scotland. It was a serious crime.
2. Claire Tells Jamie Her Secret – While it might seem like Claire would want to keep her time traveling a secret forever, she’ll tell Jamie. He’ll have a surprising reaction to the news that his wife is from the 1940s.
3. Jamie Will Be In Prison – Remember that Jamie isn’t a hero to everyone. He still has a price on his head, and someone will betray him. Claire will have to find a way to get him out, but she might not be able to stop him from getting tortured.
4. Geillis Isn’t Truthful – One of the latest previews for the second half of the season show Geillis getting awfully angry with Claire. “No more lies!” she yells. However, Claire isn’t the only one lying; Geillis has her own secrets that she is hiding. The two might have a lot in common.
5. More Black Jack – Unfortunately, it seems that Jamie won’t end Black Jack’s (Tobias Menzies) life after he discovered him about to rape Claire. That means that the Captain will be a lurking danger for them. The premiere likely won’t be the last time Jamie has to face off with him.
6. Leaving Scotland – If “Outlander” Season 1 ends where the book stops, the season won’t be in Scotland anymore. Jamie and Claire will do some traveling, but it isn't a vacation.
“Outlander” Season 1 returns to Starz on Saturday, April 4. Do you think the second half of the season will stick to the books or will the writers change some of these things?
