“Outlander” debuted in fall of 2014, based on the popular book series by Diana Gabaldon. As of this writing three seasons have aired, but Starz has yet to set a premiere date for Season 4 leaving fans worrying about how long the drought will last. In the meantime, click through our photo gallery that ranks every episode of “Outlander” from worst to best, according to their IMDb scores. How does the Season 3 finale, titled “Eye of the Storm,” stack up to what’s come before? Don’t forget to follow Gold Derby for everything “Outlander.” Together we’ll get through the current Droutlander.
Season 3 was particularly good for Caitriona Balfe. She scored her second consecutive Critics’ Choice Award nomination and third consecutive Golden Globe nomination for her riveting performance of time-traveler Claire. When we spoke with Balfe before nominations were announced we asked if there was any show or performance that she admired and she responded, “Elisabeth Moss is just incredible. ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is so wonderful.” Balfe will now have to bypass Moss if she’s going to pick up either awards.
“Outlander” hasn’t really received much love from the Emmys. For its first season (2015) it received one Emmy nomination for Original Dramatic Score (Bear McCreary, “Sassenach”). For its second season (2016) it received two Emmy nominations: Best Costumes and Best Production Design. It lost all three.
But “Outlander’s” luck maybe about to change for Season 3 if they should submit episode five, titled “Freedom and Whisky,” for Best Costumes as the audience sees Balfe in the 1960s as she makes her 18th century garb. And Tobias Menzies could be a serious contender for Best Drama Guest Actress as we said adieu to both Black Jack and Frank.
