'Outlander' Author Criticizes Sex Scene From Latest Episode: 'Bad Dialogue, Bad Direction, Bad Lighting'

The latest episode of Outlander featured a sex scene between Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) that was not well received by some fans, as well as the author of the original books, Diana Gabaldon.

The scene was a love scene in a stable and the author responded to a fan who seemed unhappy with the scene.

Diana responded, “Bad dialogue, bad direction, bad lighting, awkward set. Actors did their level best with what they were given to work with.”

She also clarified, “I thought the acting was really good–and both the earlier leadup to and the reconciliation after were both very good; the dialogue leading up to the actual sex and the staging of said sex left something to be desired.”

Then, when fans wondered if Diana hated the entire episode, she clarified she did not, she just did not enjoy that one, 45-second scene!

“Would y’all pay attention? (not meaning just you personally) I was referring explicitly to one 45-second scene, NOT the episode,” she added.

Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe have amazing chemistry and they recently spoke about it!

“The challenging scenes…we deal with some very heavy content. The intimate scenes, obviously, are a challenge as well.
