“It’s so emotional,” executive producer Maril Davis told us of the finale. “It’s so amazing to see Claire kind of back in her time. Obviously production design did an amazing job, and it’s such a satisfying finale…It’s heartbreaking and emotional but so satisfying.”

“I loved the writing in this,” she (Caitriona) tells E! News. “It’s really great. It’s a very interesting journey for Claire. Going back is very powerful and very interesting. The finale, it’s a heartbreaker, but I’m really excited for people to see it, except that it means it’s the last one.”

As for Sam Heughan, he’s most excited for fans to see one thing in particular—”the last scene.”

“She does love Frank, and probably continues to love him, but in an altered form when she’s in love with Jamie, but she does not forget Frank,” Gabaldon said. “She remains emotionally engaged with him, but their relationship is naturally going to be affected by what went on.”

“When we get to the end of the season when the battles take place — I’m not giving away too much — but we lose some characters,” Heughan  said “It really does become very emotional.”

9 News (Entertainment Tonight):

“Once we started this season with Claire already having gone back [to her present time,] we knew we wanted to catch up with her and find out what happened to her,” [Maril] Davis said of the finale’s highly anticipated time jump. “[Co-executive producer/writer] Matt [Roberts] and [executive producer/writer] Toni [Graphia] had this idea of doing this parallel structure where we’ll see what’s happening in the lead-up to the Battle of Culloden, as well as see Claire back in the 1960s and lead up to what she’s doing now.”

“It was a little tricky, structure-wise, because obviously both of those stories unfold at different rhythms,” she continued, “With Culloden, there is a definite pace to it and you should always feel that tension, whereas the Claire and Brianna arrival story unfolds in a much more languid pace, but that’s purposeful. There’s supposed to be a difference in that way.”

“When Brianna starts out, she’s a young woman who is somewhat at odds with her mother,” Davis revealed. There’s something that Bri feels that her mother has been keeping secret from her for 20 years, so there’s always a little bit of a coldness or a distance in their relationship.”

She continued, “We needed an actress who could bring some warmth to that character and we found that in Sophie. She’s just lovely and in real life she’s so charming and so gregarious and just brings so much to the part. It did take a while to find her, but we’re very pleased.”
