‘s Father Bain probably doesn’t deserve a pass, but he certainly got one in Season 1, star Caitriona Balfe says.
The actress told fans gathered at Emerald City Comicon on Friday that an incident from Diana Gabaldon’s
novel was originally included in a Season 1 episode … until things went wrong.

Sorry Kimberly, but it was Wentworth Prison that Claire was leaving when she met with the pack of wolves after finding Jamie.
