Go through the Outlander deleted scenes

Your next task if you choose to accept it is to go through the deleted scenes. This is a fun way to see what was missed out, the types of conversations that didn’t quite make it, and to see the effort that can go into creating the masterpiece.

If you have the DVD boxsets, you’ll be in a lot of luck. All the deleted scenes are included on the boxsets every season. You’ll be able to watch them one by one, picking and choosing the scenes you’d like to see if you want. Those without the boxsets will have a little bit more work to do.

The good news is that most of the deleted scenes are on YouTube or Vimeo. The Season 3 videos are only on Vimeo at this time—at least from my searches—but you can find Seasons 1 and 2 on YouTube.

Deleted scenes can give you mixed feelings. In some cases, you just love the extra content of Claire and Jamie. This is a chance to explore the characters more and see more of the beautiful writing. However, you can also be left infuriated at some of the scenes missing. For example, there’s a beautiful conversation that was cut from Outlander Season 3 about Brianna and Willie that really should have been included. In Season 2, there is deleted footage from Faith that makes the end of the episode feel a little empty because it was missed.
