Here is Ron D. Moore’s interview with E! Online

From E! Online:

Anyone else still ugly-cry-swoon-laughing right now? Thanks to Outlander, that’s now a thing.

The season-one finale has assuredly left viewers with a wild disparity of emotion—disgust, infatuation and hope—in what was one of the most gripping hours ever to air on television.

The rape scenes were like a gut punch to the soul..and seemed to never end. But the final 10 minutes? Piercingly beautiful. Emmy-worthy performances all around.

I chatted with executive producer Ronald D. Moore and here are some facts you need to know:

You Can Breathe a Little Easier: The Rape Storyline IS Over. “This is not a new template for the show going forward,” Moore explains, “in the same sense that if you look back on the first 16 episodes, they’re all different. Each week we sort of gave you a different little movie to look at and they varied in tone and story and what was happening and where they were, and these are two episodes that are very different from all the rest, and going forward, they’ll be different yet again. This is not ‘OK, Outlander now lives in this place.’ This was a specific story with those specific characters and that story has now ended. There will be reverberations and repercussions, you know, how this impacts Jamie’s life, how this impacts his relationship with Claire, certainly those things will continue forward, but no, we’re not going back to prison cells every week in season two.”

Nothing Will Ever Be the Same. “Season two will be the second book,” Moore explains, “which is Dragonfly in Amber (by Outlander book series author Diana Gabaldon). Jamie and Claire will go to France, they’ll go to Paris in fact, and they’ll try to change history. They’ll try to stop the Jacobite rebellion, so they’ll meet Bonnie Prince Charlie, a real historical figure. They’re going to live in Paris. It’s a completely different show.”

Season Two Will Look Very Different. “It’s a great setting, and what was one of the most populated cities in the world at that time. French society, it’s Aristocracy, the colors are brighter. You’re talking about fine linens and silks, you’re talking about gilt chandeliers, you know, everything that your mind conjures up when you say Versailles or Paris of that era. Suddenly our characters who lived in a Scottish world for all of season one are in that world, so it’s going to look and feel very different, which is exciting, you know. And the story is also different in that it’s much more political, it’s much more conspiracy, it’s much more lies and gossips and double dealing in Paris salons and so on, and building towards a war. It’s all setting the stage for the Jacobite invasion of Scotland, and will history repeat itself.”
