Subject: Loved it, but where's the truth?

Like others, I too would have liked fewer flashbacks and a more linear narrative, but overall I really loved seeing Jamie in his wedding kilt and the tender, questioning looks between J & C.

I was surprised that the whole conversation about telling each other the truth -- "there may be room for secrets, but not lies" -- was not included. I remember this being a major part of the wedding night conversations, and the beginning of a continuing thread throughout Jamie & Claire's relationship. And part of that conversation was their trick to touch each other in order to feel connected and less "skittish." I hope this conversation comes back. It is one of the things I like best about their relationship. Did this omission/change bother anyone else?

[> [> Yes, my only disappointments were these iconic lines and scenes not brought to life. There were several. I also though Rupert and Angus barging into the room was silly. However, I've been trying really hard to separate the book from the the series and enjoy it for what it is....and I did this show. What I'm interested ion are the reasons they deviate from some things. -- Conmama, 03:23:36 09/21/14 Sun

[> [> [> Oh...and why did Claire ask him his name? I thought I saw it on the wedding contract the episode before. -- Conmama, 03:24:48 09/21/14 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> I know...but she would have already read it on the marriage contract when she was reading it tin the prior episode. I'm fairly sure you can see his full name written out on the sheet of paper. -- Conmama, 08:47:33 09/21/14 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> [> Yes, not very clever, having his name so visible on screen in that scene. I'm la-la-la-ing that, and stating to myself Claire was so distraught at having to marry she simply stared at the paper without reading it. That's my theory, and I'm sticking with it :) -- Rita (aka FW), 08:53:35 09/21/14 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> That's how I saw it. She may have skimmed over it, not realizing it didn't say MacTavish and then it hits her as they're about to enter the church. -- TracyAnn, 10:26:29 09/21/14 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> I agree - and also, giving benefit of the doubt because she was drunk/hung over at the wedding - not thinking clearly. -- MaryJ, 12:41:09 09/21/14 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> Yep, staring, not really reading when Jamie approached her, then probably too drunk after stalking off with the bottle to really read it later. *G* -- LadyJay, 12:47:44 09/21/14 Sun

[> [> [> [> [> [> [> You made me chuckle...I guess we will just have to pretend on this one. Sort of surprises me they didn't catch that. I read a review today and it was mentioned. -- Conmama, 13:58:59 09/21/14 Sun
