The below Season 4 images were shared on Twitter. As you can see there is a dog in at least 2 of the 8 pictures. This is one of the Northern Inuit dogs portraying Rollo.
You can also see what appears to be a smaller water vessel which is likely one of the many boats from the book Drums of Autumn. However, in the last 4 images you can see a cabin and in 2 images there appears to be a fire going. There will be a famous fire in the books but I don't recall it happening this early (and I recall a lot) nor do I remember it being their cabin. So what this is I have no idea. Speculations abound but my fascination is just seeing Season 4 come together.
So that is definitely why Caitriona was cast because the chemistry is off the charts!
Outlander decided to do something that isn't really done on TV by doing the very first act of the episode without any dialogue. Toni Graphia remembers another show and network who wouldn't allow a dialogue free act and appreciates Starz for trusting them with the no dialogue and little voice over. I have heard not everyone loved this part of the episode but I loved it. It really conveyed the loneliness of being stranded on the island.
Claire also taught us the "Rule of 3" which kind of made me laugh because in the books there is this recurring theme of things happening in threes. But the "Rule of 3" is actually 3 minutes without oxygen, 3 days without water and 3 weeks without food.
Typhoid on Board
“When we first arrived here, we started with all of the scenes on the Porpoise, and we were filming in the interior of the ship down in the galley. We had many extras all lying in hammocks that were strung everywhere, and they were all covered in vomit. Fake vomit that had been made to look like vomit, but also had the unintentional effect of really smelling like it. It was in the 30s (C) temperature wise, and it was a very hot, smelly experience. Plus, add to that the gimballing, and I think all of us didn’t have to act too much when it came to our reactions, walking down to this really dank and smelly place.”
