The Show That Promised Smut, ‘Outlander’ Is Back With a New Trailer

See, Starz, this is exactly what I meant when I complained about the significant gap between the first and second half of the Outlander season. Too much time has gone by and I’m too excited about the return of Game of Thrones to get invested in Outlander again. But hey, the trailer looks good?

I mean, I’m not entirely sure about the plot, but Claire loves Jamie now so I suppose that means she doesn’t want to get back to Craigh na Dun or die trying, which also means, I hope, less Caire-ation. And no matter how pretty Sam Hueghan is (and oh boy, is he), I can’t get over the fact that the episode on April 4th will have to feature that scene. You know which one I’m talking about. Everyone who’s ever read the book or come in contact with fans of the series knows about the scene. It causes more division than the rape scenes in Game of Thrones, than Jacob/Edward/Bella/Mike/MarySue, or even which “Star” is better–Wars or Trek. Fans of the series argue historical accuracy and dissenters shout about romanticizing domestic abuse. After spending eight episodes building the trust between two main characters, then taking an extended break, I find it absolutely ridiculous that Starz would bring the series back with that scene.

But hey, maybe it’ll be tastefully done.

Outlander returns April 4th. Jen will be watching, but she can’t promise she’ll be happy about it.
