Here is a NEW Interview with Diana Gabaldon From Parade

From Parade:

The fourth episode of Season 6 of Outlander fills us in on the happiness and heartbreak that Young Ian (John Bell) experienced during his time as a member of the Mohawk tribe. While a bit of this information had previously been revealed when Ian and Roger (Richard Rankin) shared their sorrows and personal tragedies while out conducting a land survey, the Ian-centric episode 4 took it to a whole new level.

More after the jump!

As Outlander creator and author Diana Gabaldon describes episode 4 in an exclusive chat with Parade, “This episode makes it visual, adds a lot of detail (a lot of it is from the book), and lets us understand the depth of Ian’s feelings for the Mohawk—and, by extension, his urge to help the Cherokee. Ian is a favorite character (and John Bell plays him brilliantly!), so there’s a desire to see more of his ‘other’ life in more detail, and to show the Mohawk in a different light than we saw them during Roger’s abduction and rescue.”

In episode 4, we begin Ian’s journey from the ceremony where he gets his white blood washed away and becomes Wolf’s Brother. We watch as the lad morphs into a man and is taken to husband by Emily, aka Wakyo’teyehsnonhsa. (Note: The women do the choosing!) It is a great love for Ian, but according to Gabaldon, it isn’t fair to compare it or equate it to Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire’s (Caitríona Balfe) relationship, or any relationship for that matter.

“Some relationships begin suddenly on a deep level and continue that way: ‘Love at first sight’ that deepens into long marriage,” Gabaldon says, adding, “I, rather luckily, have one of those. Some begin slowly, where an initial attraction takes time to deepen into something permanent. Both Jamie and Claire and Bree and Roger could fit this second description, though their relationships look very different from the outside.”
