Deleted scene from Episode 106

STARZ has released a deleted scene from OUTLANDER Episode 106, "The Garrison Commander", showing the original ending to that episode.



I'm not sure if this video will work outside the US, but if it doesn't, try this link instead.

I was glad to see that they filmed more of Claire's initial reaction to the news of her impending marriage to Jamie, even if there wasn't time to include it in the finished episode.  (The voice-over is taken almost word-for-word from the book.)

The scene with Frank and Claire was tender and sweet, but coming on top of the horrific scenes of the flogging, I think the last thing I would have wanted to see at that point in the show was a character who so strongly resembles Jack Randall.  I think they made the right decision to end the episode on a lighter note, with a touch of humor.  ("Does it bother you that I'm not a virgin?", etc.)

If you want to see more of my reactions to Episode 106, look here for my recap.
