*New* Maril Davis Speaks About Roger’s Journey and Episode 4×10 of Outlander “The Deep Heart’s Core” With THR   2 comments

From THR

When he finally did make it to Fraser’s Ridge, he was immediately attacked without warning by a man who could only be Brianna’s father, Jamie (Sam Heughan), and sold to the Native Americans as a slave. After being forced to walk hundreds of miles away from finding Bree yet again, he fell, injured his wrists and was able to escape his guards. But so far north and lost, there’s no guarantee that he’ll ever be able to find Bree again. So the cliffhanger at the end of “The Deep Heart’s Core,” showing Roger discovering a stone circle deep in the woods, was huge. He heard the telltale buzzing, meaning he could go back to his time through these stones. He could leave all this heartbreak and harm behind him, but he’d be saying goodbye to ever seeing Bree again.


More after the jump! 

“It’s been a horrible journey for Roger,” Outlander executive producer Maril Davis tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Finding out Brianna’s gone back without him, questioning how she feels about him, the highs of their handfasting and lovemaking and the lows of him having to reveal to her that he knew about [Claire] and didn’t tell her, her running off and him having to work for Stephen Bonnet again and the Jamie stuff — the poor guy is, certainly at this point, questioning what he is doing back here. Why is he even here anymore?”

That’s why this week’s hour, which also mostly focused on the Fraser family drama happening at Fraser’s Ridge, ended on that shot of Roger.

“We wanted to show that he’s questioning going back,” Davis says. “We wanted to show that he was physically and emotionally torn, that there was this thought of, ‘Should I go back?’ Quite honestly, I don’t know if anyone would blame him at this point. The question is, is his love for Brianna greater than his desire to leave this all behind and go home? He’s in the hands of the Mohawk now and doesn’t know what’s going to happen. We’ll have to wait and see what he chooses.”

  1. What a confusion, miscommunication, misunderstanding, and a big gap in expectations. Bree is from the 1960’s and Jamie of the 18th Century – different approaches and outlook.

  2. What an annoying!! episode!!
