Outlander fans are looking forward for the TV series to air its third installment in Starz and fans of the Outlander book series are pretty excited for its ninth novel, but with the recent interview of Diana Gabaldon, the Outlander author has made major revelations that will shock both fans of the TV series and book series alike.
According to Gabaldon, via an interview with the Entertainment Weekly, the Outlander book series will probably end with an even ten novels and by then, all the loose ends of the story will be given a proper closure including the mysterious moment in the beginning of the book series involving Claire’s present-time husband, Frank.
In the very beginning of the Outlander book series, there was a moment there where Frank, standing outside the inn where Claire and him are staying, sees Jamie watching Claire through the window. The mysterious moment has never been explained and fans are wondering whether the upcoming book sequel of the series, titled Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone, will finally address the mystery.
The author then revealed that she will solve the mystery in the last book although it may take a while but at least there is solid proof that the author will address every loose end of the story and give proper closure to every characters’ narrative arc.
“It’ll be the very last thing in the last book, which I think is probably book 10,” the author of the historical science fiction saga said via the Entertainment Weekly.
Gabaldon also revealed her thoughts on the portrayal of Claire by actress Caitriona Balfe as fans have been criticizing her in the Starz’s series. Many fans complained that the TV version of Claire has been lacking sense of humor to which the author attributes to the TV series’ lack of fist-person perspective.
“Caitriona’s a great actress, but there’s only so much she can do with her face,” the author said. “You can’t film in somebody’s head.” Gabaldon also is not too concerned about the difference of the two Claires as Balfe has been doing a great job in portraying Claire.
