We start the last week of the individual promotion for Outlander Season 5. It's all about Claire Fraser, as she stands for family.
We've had characters standing for honor and love. Now it's time for someone to stand for family. That's Claire Fraser in the Outlander Season 5 promo poster.
It's the last week of the individual character posters, and after a strong week for Jamie, we looked forward to a strong week for Claire. I'm a little "well..." but I like the caption that goes with the poster.
My problem is that once again, the women have been focused on for their connections to their families. In a way, I expected it with Claire, though. After all, everything that she does in her surgery in "The Fiery Cross" is for family, so naturally, that was going to happen in the fifth season.
However, while I'm fed up of TV shows making a point that family is everything for women (why don't they make that point for men?), I don't hate Claire's promo poster as much as I hated the Brianna GIF. You see, family means far more to Claire. She doesn't just want to protect her flesh and blood, but she wants to protect the people on the Ridge; the people who have become family to her and Jamie.
That's why this poster stands out. Claire is going to take some huge risks in the fifth season, especially with the development of penicillin. Her actions could be viewed as witchcraft and that puts everyone in her family at risk. But she's willing to do it for the safety of everyone.
So, I can just about let the STARZ promo team off for this one. I'm still a little fed up of women only being good for babies and families, but for Claire, it's something much bigger. And I do love the strong stance that matches all the others with the individual promos.
