Is it fair if the tv adaptation of a popular novel applies remarkable changes in the show?
International Business Times noted Showrunner Allan D. Moore’s admission of the modifications styled on the opening scene of “Outlander” Season 3.
“It just felt like for the TV show, we’ve been promising this for a while and it just felt like we should have something,” Moore told Entertainment Weekly. “We should give the audience some sense of what happened on that moor.”
While author Diana Gabaldon commenced her novel “Voyager” with an amnesiac Jamie who is unable to remember the events that took place in the battle, the historical drama opens with a fight between Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies).
A previous report mentioned that Moore already set the expectations of the viewers in the third installment of the time travel series with emphasis on major transformation of the plot and the challenging yet thrilling sea voyage.
The leaked photos of Jamie give the show’s followers a glimpse of the bloody battles that they should anticipate once “Outlander” returns to its regular programming.

Gabaldon has no issues with the bold changes. In fact she and Moore, considered them to be “dramatically satisfying.
Some fans of the series may be disappointed especially with the conclusion that the series is deviating from the novel and some may be delighted enough to accept any adjustments as long as the show will not be compromised especially its interesting storyline.
There are a lot of great things to look forward when “Outlander” season 3 is released. Lord John Grey and his scandal is up for a controversy plus the much awaited reunion of Jaime and Claire and of course, the ultimate fights that will thrill every interested “Outlander” loyalist.
“Outlander” Season 3 is slated to premiere on Starz in 2017.
