Episode 89: Discussion of Episode 111 “The Devil’s Mark”

In this episode, we discuss Outlander Episode 111 “The Devil’s Mark.” And in our not-so-humble opinions, this was the best one yet.

Our discussion of the episode is, indeed, in this week’s podcast. But this episode was so much more. We both agreed that this was the show’s most stunning work, yet. Lotte Verbeek, finally given more and meatier scenes, steals the show. This is the episode where two important things happen: Claire meets another TRAVELER, and Claire makes the most important CHOICE of her life. The first time she left Frank, it was not her choice. This time, it is. Finally, FINALLY, Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander universe is set up. We come to know there are others who can travel, and it seems, from Geillis’ questioning of Claire, that she certainly was surprised that Claire came only “on accident.” Without a purpose, as she herself had.

Here are some of our favorite shots of Geillis from the episode. Truly, a wonderful performance by Lotte Verbeek.

Knockout Licensing: Two more ‘Outlander’ licensees announced

Knockout Licensing

In a press release today, Knockout Licensing announced two more Outlander licensees: AbbyShot and The Celtic Croft.

From the press release:

AbbyShot has been granted rights to produce limited-edition OUTLANDER Clothing and Fashion Accessories inspired by styles featured in the show, including coats, scarves, hats, bags, cowls, cloaks, and more.

“Our OUTLANDER clothing and accessories will be faithfully styled after the actual  costumes and props seen on the television series,” said AbbyShot’s owner and CEO (Creator of Exciting Opportunities), Bonnie Cook. “Now you too can feel as if you have traveled back to Cocknammon Rock at Craigh na Dun, each time you wear an officially licensed product from AbbyShot.”

A privately held Canadian company founded in July 2002, AbbyShot’s garment designs are styled after clothing worn in movies, TV shows and computer games, yet are completely wearable as high-end, durable, everyday apparel. AbbyShot is known for its screen-accurate clothing — a reputation earned through near-obsessive attention to the details of garment accuracy, quality, and durability. AbbyShot currently ships their products to 53 countries around the globe and is thrilled to be able to offer OUTLANDER products to those living in Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the European Union and European Economic Area; both wholesale and retail.

The Celtic Croft has been granted rights to produce Traditional Scottish Apparel & Accessories – including custom-made wool kilts, Tartans, shawls, and tams – made from the same 100% wool Tartan, woven in Scotland at the same mill contracted to provide Tartan for the kilts used in the OUTLANDER series. There are currently five exclusive and proprietary Tartan patterns – each representing a different family or clan depicted in the OUTLANDER series. Each of the OUTLANDER Tartans is officially registered with the Scottish Register of Tartans.

“Fans who want an authentic OUTLANDER kilt can rest assured that our kilts are the real deal, made from the same fabric and sourced from the same weaver as those seen on the show,” said The Celtic Croft Owner Joseph Croft. “The Celtic Croft has been in the kilt business for almost 20 years, making custom-tailored kilts to each customer’s exact measurements. The Celtic Croft is one of the largest U.S. importers of authentic Tartan fabric woven in Scotland.” 

The Celtic Croft is a family owned and operated business specializing in kilts, Tartans, as well as traditional Scottish, Irish and Welsh clothing and related accessories. The Celtic Croft’s primary market is the USA and Canada but it can ship products worldwide.

‘Outlander’ Episode 110 “By the Pricking of my My Thumbs” preview clips and official photos

Simon Callow as the Duke of Sandringham

Simon Callow as the Duke of Sandringham

Episode 109 “The Reckoning” has aired, and Droughtlander is officially over! On with the show!

In the scene in Colum’s office, after he has returned the Jacobite gold to Dougal, this exchange happens:

Colum: Ned, send a missive to the Duke of Sandringham inviting him to a banquet in his honor.

Dougal: Best warn the men of the household to keep their arses out of his reach.

Thus we are introduced to the very interesting character of le Duc. (Other than his mention by Black Jack Randall in Season 1A, of course.)

Starz has released a preview clip from next week’s episode, “By The Pricking of My Thumbs.” In it, we meet Simon Callow as the Duke of Sandringham (sans high voice), and see how Jamie is hopeful that he may help lift the price from his head. Claire warns Jamie not to trust him. And it appears a duel ensues!
