Outlander Mid-season Premiere in NYC

My friends, Droughtlander is OVER and it feels so good!

I was lucky enough to get to see Episode 9 with a bunch of other lovely fans in NYC on Wednesday. I took my mom with me, as it was her first big event/fan experience and she had a wonderful time!

We arrived in the afternoon on Tuesday and checked into our hotel which was right next to Time Square. We stood in the pouring rain because it’s TIME SQUARE, got some pizza, and planned to get up early to meet the Outlander street team at Good Morning America for some t-shirts and fun!

Oh hey! I made it on Good Morning America! Well, like 3/4 of my face. 🙂

After that mom and I visited Rockefeller center and central park.

We even scoped out the event location.

Then we headed back to our room to get ready. Met up with some friends and hopped in line. After a long wait, we were herded through the ticket line and right into a most beautiful sight! Actual costumes worn on set, including the most beautiful wedding dress ever to grace the screen. It was so wonderful to see them so up close.

Once we made it into the theater we were shown to our seats (6th row, middle!) and waited for the show to start. To avoid spoilers until the episode officially airs, I’ll just say it is probably my favorite of the show so far. It handles some scenes that could so easily be misjudged and criticized and made them so meaningful to the story and make so much sense. Besides that some scenes are just HOT. It’s a sexy show, but it’s also so full of heart and courage.

Once the show was over the cast did a brief Q&A. It was short but the cast was upbeat and witty. Which can’t be easy considering all the press they’ve been doing lately.

Are there a lot of pictures of Tobias? I LOVE me some Tobias. In fact, after the show I was able to get a picture and autograph with him. Not the first time I’ve met him, and he was still just as generous and kind. Love him!

We had a fantastic night and most importantly my mother had a wonderful first fan event. Spending time with my mother and getting to share something that is so exciting and important to me was so meaningful. She’s the best!

I also want to thank Starz for the swag – including a flask and t-shirt from the street team. Was super fun!

That said, I do feel the need to address that not everyone had a great night at this event. Some people with guaranteed tickets did not make it into the 7pm show, and some people didn’t make it at ALL, even with the 9pm show. I’m not sure what happened, but despite my good time, I want to express my empathy at waiting in a freezing cold line and receiving nothing except a freezing cold line. I’m so sorry if that happened to you. ❤ And I hope that with any new events we attend, we all have a better time.

Now please, enjoy episode 109, The Reckoning!
