Outlander: Season 3 has several Easter eggs for fans
Hey Sassenachs: Jon Gary Steele and Terry Dresbach have some surprises for you!
When season 3 of Outlander returns this fall, the production and costume designers have taken care to inject little gifts, i.e. Easter eggs, into some episodes for eagle-eyed fans.
Steele told EW exclusively that he placed one “egg” not-so-surreptitiously on the Artemis — the ship that takes Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) on their Caribbean adventure. The egg harkens back to the Paris brothel scenes from season 2, though it was touched up for its season 3 unveiling. You can’t miss it!
And in the much-anticipated print shop scene — when Claire and Jamie reunite after two decades apart — Steele inserted something very special onto the set from author Diana Gabaldon herself. This one may be harder to find, Steele admits.
And no, we won’t tell you what the eggs are! You’ll just have to wait and find them yourself.
“It’s fun to be able to say to the fans, if you look, you’ll find something that was off that set!” Steele tells EW.
Dresbach, meanwhile, has her own little wonderment for fans. One of Claire’s fancier dresses in the new season was actually recycled from her season 2 wardrobe. Keep an eye out for the familiar tog in the back half of the 13-episode run. “We are trying to be as authentic as possible,” Dresbach tells EW. “People got two or three dresses that would last them the entire lives.”
Outlander returns to Starz on Sept. 10.
