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.
1.40 Million Viewers
So numbers are up. Maybe not as much as the most highly rated episodes but the word on the net is that Outlander is doing amazing and they are in talks about the 5th season. Which means that Uncharted (aka Turtle Soup) did pretty well with a 1.40 million viewers. Not in the top five but not bad really.

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.”
-Caitriona Balfe (Claire Randall Fraser)
