Outlander Season 5 Fiery Cross 2020 Trailer and the Murtagh Conflict

IMG_B4B60B3A88DF-1

Are you ready to “Stand For All”? Starz® released the latest Outlander Season 5 trailer for the New Year and marked a six-week wait until this seasons Draughtlander is over. This more in-depth feature clip. Hold on to your boots.

“Do you ever feel as if everything’s pointing you towards something? Space. Time. History? I am grateful for everyday we have,”

IMG_3976Book readers will know the events surrounding this season’s conflicts for Jamie, Claire and all the other inhabitants of Fraser’s Ridge. The War of the Regulation is coming, and one of the leaders, our beloved Murtagh, Jamie’s Godfather, and life long friend, at the thick of it. At the end of season 4, Governor Tryon sent Jamie a declaration calling in on the promise of a militia backing for the Fraser’s Ridge Land Grant. This conditional grant allows the call of militia from the settlers on the Ridge to fight the Regulators with Tryon’s army. Jamie and Murtagh will be on opposing sides as the conflict will be a story arch through the season.

How will Jamie keep his kin safe, his Godfather from harm, and not lose the land grant? This plot while following similar events in the book The Fiery Cross, has the changed element of the Murtagh conflict. As you will recall, Murtagh is a character that has survived in the series, when his book character perished in The Battle of Culloden.

Screen Shot 2020-01-04 at 1.58.23 PMWe are aswoon to see Jamie in a kilt again, the internet has been in a Twitter fest about it for days. However, a cringe-worthy moment in the trailer is when we see Jamie dressed in Lobster Red, the British Army uniform, and the expression on his face as he sacrifices convictions to keep the many who rely on him safe.

We also see Roger, dealing with internal conflict for Bree and their child, for Roger decides to take the child as his own. A marriage, finally settling down, with all the decisions a new marriage brings.Screen Shot 2020-01-04 at 1.33.33 PM

“People consider this the spark of the American revolution. If We stop this fight now, America will never become America.”

Bree talks with Jamie (Sam Heughan) about how he can’t change history, or try to as he has in the past. Jamie wants desperately to find a way to not harm his kinsman, or sacrifice any of his family. However Bree cautions him to let it play out, a new nation is at stake.

IMG_3997He must hide his relationship with Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix), his kinsman. Claire (Catriona Balfe) has a new surgery and continues to used modern technical medical knowledge with what she has available to help fight injury and disease, and all the superstition that goes along with it.Screen Shot 2020-01-04 at 2.00.51 PM

Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger (Richard Rankin) form a family unit but are still haunted by Stephen Bonnet. What if he finds them, or wants their son? Brianna struggles with memories of her attack. Roger learns how to hunt and live off the land, with Bree teaching how to shoot. He needs to find respect from Jamie, to show he can provide for his family and make a contribution to life on the Ridge.

IMG_3918Aunt Jocasta (Maria Doyle Kennedy) must also keep her relationship with Murtagh a secret, especially with suitors milling about that want to get their hands on her River Run Plantation.

Don’t forget, Marsali (Lauren Lyle) and Fergus (Cèsar Domboy) will be expanding their family life on the Ridge, and new settlers will present new problems. We’ll see favorites from Season 4 return, Ulysses (Colin McFarlane) and John Quincy Myers (Kyle Rees).

And furball Adso must be kept from destroying Claire’s new surgery.

Season 5 of Outlander contains 12 episodes and will premiere at 8 p.m. Sunday, February 16, 2020. You can download on the Starz® App at Midnight via online or Amazon affiliates.

Duncan Lacroix’s Holiday and Birthday Adventure

Lacroix fans have been spoiled for the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. First Duncan had a new set of headshots that he exposed to the world, and then set out on a grand few adventures.

Duncan decided to go large for that very special birthday celebrating living half a century on December 28, 2019.

IMG_3936

Duncan first met up with friends in Los Angeles, Jon Gary Steele who has just left Outlander production and met up with friends in his first visit to LA. He took in the sites and did a lot of beachcombing on the So Cal beaches. After an insane Christmas party and events, Duncan hopped a plane to Maui, Hawaii. The minute he got off the tarmac, he was downing the Mai Tais. IMG_3960

Duncan Celebrated his 50th in style with killer balcony views. He also found one man crazy enough to wear wool on Maui, a fearsome piper to be sure. After a few beach filled days, he rented the Murtagh Mobile Mach II and headed out to Hana. This road is quite perilous and twisty offering amazing landscapes. Hmm, watch out volcano, you may have met your match.

It sounds like Duncan is going to have to start Vlog Casting his travel adventures soon. You can check out his Instagram, yes he is not on Twitter, Snap, FB or other Social Media sites, and he like other members of the cast have been having problems with fake accounts. You can find him at @duncan.lacroix.

Outlander Season 5 Opening Scene

Last weekend during Starz® Page to Screen Weekend viewers were treated to an opening scene to Episode 5.01. In it, we go back in time and see a young Murtagh and very young Jaimie. For those of you wondering how the Silver Fox suddenly had his hair color back, will probably be disappointed it wasn’t an attempt at disguise for Murtagh due to his Godson having to hunt him down as was ordered by Governor Tryon in last season’s closer. However, there is sure to be a lot of conflict between the two kinsmen this season.

Stay tuned, Outlander returns on Starz® on February 16, 2020.

Official Teaser

 

And some fun clips. Looking out for some cleaner ones.

It’s The Annual Outlander Season Class Photo and Season 5 Next Peek

IMG_3838Every year of production, the cast and crew available on set have that big class photoshoot. This one includes the Big House all fans have been waiting for. It’s a house designed by Jon Gary Steel, one of his last big set designs for the series. Cast and crew were saying goodbyes, snaps behind scenes, smiles and exhausted tears this week.

We were also graced with more previews, including another wedding bell scene. What is that, one per season almost? Last season’s handfasting counts, right? For more details, check out Lynette Rice’s article here:

Jon Gary Steel Leaves Outlander Team

IMG_3817

It is with great sadness that Outlander is losing its magnificent Set Designer, Jon Gary Steel. Five seasons, 7 years involvement with production have left its mark on the series with Jon’s innovative style, recapturing ages in the past from the 20th to the 18th century. His talents for finding that amazing pallet for the Paris Apartments, that were upcycled to be Jamie’s Printshop in Season 3, to building the new Big House for Season 5. He announced his departure at the Season 5 Wrap Party.

Many of us will miss his great sharing of current tidbits of production, in the “Guess what this will be” teases, sharing of moments past, and look for that Easter Egg. His amazing insight and scouting for that just right motif or architectural wall, or details for the floor of the Great Hall and working with historic sites in Scotland. Always a great champion of his design crew on-site and in LA. IMG_3846

This week Jon and Husband Barry Waldo returned to Los Angeles and were so happy to see the sun. We look forward to new set design and producing ventures of Mr. Steel.

You can keep up with Jon at his very busy Twitter site, @jongarysteel, and his website where he has great break downs of set design and Outlander links. We wish him all the best. He joins his great friend Terry Dresbach, and Ron D. Moore who has stepped back a bit from showrunner, and this last season saw @TheMattRoberts take the lead for show and writer’s room while continuing to produce. New producers Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe have just stepped up for the new season.

Jon Gary Steel’s Website is a bit behind. Hopefully, now that he has more time, there will be more great insights.

 

Season 5 is a Wrap
