A lot went into the making of The Doldrums but one of the most fun things was the easter egg the production team gave us.
Noticed the bow of the Artemis it is a wooden statue that appeared in the brothel of season 2 where Jamie finds Fergus and meets Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Here is what Jon Gary Steele had to say about it.
“We were thinking we’d pay someone to carve a new one,” production designer Jon Gary Steele recalls to EW. “But then weeks before we came here, we were walking by all those things that were stacked up [from season 2], because you don’t want to destroy them. Nicki McCallum, the supervising art director who’s brilliant, and I were walking by and both started looking at the statue and I said, ‘Well, this looks like a masthead. Why don’t we just use this?’ It’s kind of fun because it was all done. I mean, all we had to do is a little bit of work on it and repaint it, whatever. But it’s also fun to be able to say to the fans, ‘If you look, you’ll find something that was off that set.’"
According to Jon Gary Steele and Terry Dresbach there are some easter egg surprises in store for fans during season 3.
