Possible premiere date announcement this week?  
Yesterday, the Starz Outlander twitter account tweeted this teaser:

Given the exchanges that followed in reply to that tweet from fans, it sounds as if the "verra big thing" could well be the announcement of the premiere date. Or something else entirely...

Then today, Sam Heughan tweeted something that really makes me wonder a bit.

Spoiler-y stuff if you've not read the books:

Sam tweeted this:

The thing is, of course, Bree and Jamie don't meet in book 2. As book readers know, they don't meet until book 4. Of course, Sam doesn't say they were actually filming anything together -- it could just be that they were both on the set, with each filming totally separate things -- Sam some Jamie-set-in-the-past scenes and Sophie some Bree-set-in-the-1960s scenes. I have to say that I hope that's the case -- if they moved up the father-daughter meeting that much, it would significantly change things going forward (assuming the show is picked up for future seasons).

Also, speaking of the books and future seasons... has anyone else been wondering about how they'll handle book 3 since so much of it takes place on ships at sea? Every time I watch an episode of Black Sails, I keep wondering if Outlander could just steal their ships...

LOL So cute. I love these actors. They really get into it.

I've thought that too. I think they can pull it off. First they don't have to spend that many episodes on a ship. They can truncate those things and have an episode or so and really cover some of the goings on. But then with all that does happen...

[Spoiler (click to open)]I mean they could have the Man-of-war approach them and then there is Claire and Jamie being separated. The fight with the pirates. It will be like Black Sails all over again. I hope they get a third season because it will be amazing and they can totally use Black Sails's ships.

Oh and the slave market... wow. And then later being on John's ship and then washing up in GA. Wow. Seaons 3 could blow our minds.

Yay! Another Black Sails fan!

In some ways I think book 3 is my least favourite because it just seems so over the top at times once they set off to sea. But action-wise, it would make for great TV.

I never saw Voyager as over the top. I also think that Starz and Ron can bring a real grittiness to it. I can't wait.

I've had the same thought.

Glad to see more Black Sails fans around -- no one I know in real life watches the show.

No one I know watches it either. They only sign up for Starz when Outlander is airing.
