After receiving an email from Starz PR excitedly announcing that Outlander would be back with it’s midseason premiere in APRIL 2015 a few shouty caps texts were exchanged by the ladies of TN.
“WHAT WILL WE DO FOR SIX MONTHS?! SURELY WE WILL SHRIVEL INTO BALLS OF OLD SPINSTERHOOD AND DIE!!!”
“IS STARZ FOR SERIOUS?! WHY WOULD THEY KEEP THEIR NEW (40% increase since the premiere) AUDIENCE HANGING LIKE THAT?!”
“WILL ANYONE REMEMBER JAMIE AND CLAIRE?!”
“WHO ARE JAMIE AND CLAIRE?!?!?!?!”
“I HATE THAT OFFICIAL REPLICA WEDDING RING!!!!”
“Wait, where am I?”
Clearly the histrionics were quite… outlandish, if you will… but for reals, WHAT?! WHY?! Honestly, what will we do for the next six months of this Outlander hiatus?! You saw how pathetic it got last year waiting for the premiere… and how naughty it got waiting for Benedict Cumberbatch to grace our TV screens again for Sherlock. How will we manage? If our reactions to the news below are any indicator…
The range of my emotions went as such. First I was Ms. Jay when I read the email title
Then I was as outraged as Christopher Walken:
Then I spent all afternoon somewhere between crying Dawson from Varsity Blues and Liz Lemon
At first I was like
Which was pretty weird since I am not and never have been pregnant…but Outlander will do weird things to the body, ya know?
When I started thinking about WHAT I’m going to do for the next 6 months I was like:
But then I remember I’ll probably just do this
As I do.
I was more like this when I saw the press email that said “FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Starz announces Outlander will return April 4, 2015.”
Like this is a prank, right? HARDY HAR HAR, Starz PR. Hardy har.
But then Nikki texted me, and I hopped online and saw that they weren’t just killing me softly with this nonsense. It was on the real.
Even Claire is like. Dude. No.
And I check twitter and the entire Outlander fandom is Dwight, and I am Michael.
BECAUSE HOW DARE THEY ASK FOR VACATIONS AND TIME OFF AND HOLIDAYS ON THEIR COAST OF CHOICE WHEN I WANT 8 MORE WEEKS OF
naked Jamie WINTER! WE ARE VERUCA.
But, I’ll chill. I’ll be cool. I’ll take a play out of Nikki and Bekah’s playbook, and be totally sezzzy for the next six months. I’ll be ….
So we have six months to kill… what shall we do? Well, believe it or not there was plenty to do around here before Outlander came along *SHOCKING* and there will be plenty to do this fall and winter as we wait out the long cold winter of our OutlanderDiscontent.
