In the tenth installment of our ongoing video series, senior editor Rob Licuria and “Outlander” fan Paula Licuria dish the highs and lows of each episode week to week of this chapter of the fantasy romance saga based on “Drums of Autumn,” Diana Gabaldon’s fourth novel in the series of books (watch above). We’ve also hosted recap and analysis videos for the first episode, second episode, third episode, fourth episode, fifth episode, sixth episode, seventh episode, eighth episode and ninth episode.
In “The Deep Heart’s Core,” the tenth episode of season four for the Starz hit drama “Outlander,” the tension within the family escalates when the secrets that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) have been keeping from one another are finally revealed; they realize that their actions have led to disastrous consequences for Roger (Richard Rankin) and Brianna (Sophie Skelton). When Brianna insists on Jamie and Claire rescuing Roger from the Native Americans that Young Ian (John Bell) traded him to, the family is forced to separate, leaving things unresolved as Jamie and Claire depart on a rescue mission. Meanwhile, Roger finds himself at the mercy of his Native American captors. The episode was written by Luke Schelhaas and directed by David Moore.
“We have plenty to talk about, this was another very good episode,” Rob declares. “They’re all getting better and better as we get closer to the finale,” he adds. “I loved this episode,” Paula agrees, adding “just as much if not more than the previous one.”
“Like I said in our last video, this is Sam’s season,” Paula proclaims. “I loved watching his performance in this episode.” “Yeah, Sam Heughan is totally killing it,” Rob agrees. “As fans, we really love their performances so much that we want to tell everybody to watch them,” he says, adding “people will make assumptions about Sam Heughan, like he’s second fiddle, or a pretty boy, or there’s no substance to his performance, but that’s just nonsense, because he’s really, really amazing.”
