Here is a NEW Interview with Sophie Skelton from Variety

From Variety:

Viewers who are familiar with Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” book series were in for quite a surprise in the most recent episode, “Mercy Shall Follow Me,” because the action jumped ahead to the sixth novel and wrapped up a storyline that has been on-going for two seasons.

More after the jump!

In “Mercy Shall Follow Me,” Brianna (Sophie Skelton) was kidnapped by Stephen Bonnet (Ed Speleers) and taken to his private home on Ocracoke Island where he decided they could make a family with “their” son.

“[The writers] felt like because Bonnet is this looming presence the whole way through [this season], then if you didn’t wrap it up, you’ve got the same thing happening next season,” Skelton tells Variety. “It was nice to wrap it up, and now we can move on next year.”

In wrapping up that storyline, the show stuck fairly close to the events of the book. While fighting with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Brianna on the beach, Bonnet knocked Brianna unconscious and she awoke in a strange house, disoriented and scared. But Skelton says that at one point there was also going to be a question of baby Jemmy’s safety as well.

  2. Brianna was caught between the devil (Stephen Bonnet) and the deep blue sea – she had no were else to go and as long as Stephen was around, she was trapped. I think though that she killed Bonnet out of mercy than anything else.
