NEW Interview with Maril Davis and Toni Graphia from TV Guide   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Maril Davis and Toni Graphia from TV Guide

From TV Guide:

Sunday’s episode of Outlander contained one of the scenes book fans have been anxious about (no, not The Print Shop scene, sorry). In it, Jamie (Sam Heughan) has settled into his new indentured servitude at Helwater estate and consequentially became intimately acquainted with Lady Geneva Dunsany (Hannah James), the eldest daughter of the estate.

More after the jump!

Sunday’s episode of Outlander contained one of the scenes book fans have been anxious about (no, not The Print Shop scene, sorry). In it, Jamie (Sam Heughan) has settled into his new indentured servitude at Helwater estate and consequentially became intimately acquainted with Lady Geneva Dunsany (Hannah James), the eldest daughter of the estate.

In the Outlander novel, Voyager, on which this season is based, Geneva finds out that she is betrothed to a wealthy older man whom she despises. In retaliation, she blackmails Jamie into having sex with her so that her first time can be with a more attractive man she’s actually fond of. Jamie goes through with it to protect his family from Geneva’s meddling, but at one point Geneva asks him to stop and he doesn’t. He later apologizes and she says she didn’t really want him to stop — but the optics of the scene still created a tricky situation for the Outlander writers when adapting it for television.

On screen, the final cut of the episode kept Geneva’s blackmail — but omitted her withdrawing consent in the middle of her and Jamie having sex.

“We didn’t want to approach that part or include that part because, at the end of the day, we didn’t feel like what that scene was about,” executive producer Maril Davis explained to TV Guide. “That scene should be all about Jamie being forced into doing something, but still not trying to take advantage of [Gevena] — and wanting the experience, even though it’s being forced on him, to be an okay one for her. It’s all about Jamie as a gentleman.”

  1. Very well acted. I got the feeling that women were married off to much older men in those years – and with conditions included.
