GILLIS DUNCAN TO RETURN IN SEASON 2
( FOR OUTLANDER FANS OF THE BOOKS THIS IS CONFUSING)
The last time we saw Geillis she was being carried off to be burnt at the stake after sacrificing herself for Claire. Those who have read the books know what is coming, but those who haven't will find this news very surprising. In an interview with Zap2it, Ronald D. Moore confirms her return.
"He will say viewers can expect to see Lotte Verbeek return as Geillis Duncan but is tight-lipped on anything more than that. Also returning is Tobias Menzies as Claire’s present day husband Frank — but will he also reprise his role as the evil Black Jack, who was trampled by bulls when viewers last saw him?"
“You could theoretically broadcast it in two pieces because they are almost standalone sections, but right now the intention is probably to show them straight through.”
There are plenty of other twists and turns in Season 2, and Moore is keeping them close to his chest. Two of those are new characters Brianna and Roger, who haven’t been cast yet. Moore won’t tease when fans can expect to meet them, saying, “I don’t think I’m ready to give that away yet.”
