Fans got distressed after they discovered that an extended scene from an “Outlander” Season 2 episode, titled “Faith,” could not make it to the final cut, after it surfaced on the internet. The scene depicted the raw emotions of lovers Jamie and Claire at the loss of their baby. Viewers were dismayed that such a moving scene was omitted from the episode.
Viewers found extended scene, which showed Jamie, played by Sam Heughan and Claire, played by Caitriona Balfe, dealing with the pain of giving birth to a stillborn child named “Faith,” moving. According to a report by the Scottish Daily Records, the scene was one of the most moving of the entire series and fans found it disappointing that it did not hit the screens.
The extended Outlander Season 2 clip shows Jamie begging Claire to let him share the burden and pain of losing their child, since the only way to live with the pain is to bear it “together.” When Claire asks him if he is sure of what he is asking for, Jamie replies he has given her his “body and soul.”
The Hall of Fame Magazine reported that the clip was shared on the social media and fans commented furiously for not including the scene in the episode. Outlander director Metin Hüseyin also took to Twitter to express his disappointment that it was a cut.
“Don’t know why this part of the scene was cut. Cait & Sam were/are magnificent, carrying the weight of previous 20 episodes into this,” he tweeted.
Diana Gabaldon, author of the “Outlander” books, replied to Hüseyin’ s tweet saying, “Yeah, that’s what I said, if less eloquently. Glad it gets to be seen, at least.”
The strong emotional response to the scene is a testimony to the powerful acting capability of both Heughan and Balfe. However, the producers have their own valid reasons to why a scene is excluded, and in this respect as well they must have a good reason.
There is good news for the fans who have been waiting patiently for Droughtlander to come to an end. “The Making of Outlander: The Series: The Official Guide to Seasons One & Two” released October 2008 to help fans stay connected with the show.
