The second half of Season 1 continues and the narration switches from Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) voiceover to Jamie’s (Sam Heughan), but just for this episode. Creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore explained how they didn’t want to pick up in real time right after the cliffhanger, but rather have a different lead-in with a different point of view. “It was interesting to tell those events in that first hour from Jamie’s point of view. And then, it also served a larger goal in the life of the series in that the show beyond Season 1 is really about Jamie and Claire together, and this was a moment to sort of pivot to now include him in the perspective for the audience, and that gave us permission moving forward to then do scenes that Jamie was in, that Claire wasn’t in, so now the show became about both of them as we move forward.”
