The moment Outlander fans have all been waiting for is almost here and the episode in question will be coming with an extended runtime!

Ever since Starz revealed the first teaser for Outlander season 3, fans have been obsessing over one moment in particular. We’re talking of course about the shot which focuses in on the infamous wrought-iron sign that hangs on the awning of A. Malcom’s print shop.

As Outlander fans who’ve read the books will know all too well, the print shop is the location in which Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) finally have their long awaited reunion.

Given that the Frasers have spent a good chunk of season 3 separated by centuries, we’re sure we’re not the only ones looking forward to the long awaited reunion set to take place in episode 6.

The upcoming episode, aptly titled “A. Malcolm,” is set to air next Sunday (October 22), and the good news is, it sounds like Starz is planning to make sure Jamie and Claire get the reunion they deserve!

According to Entertainment Weekly, the series plans to mark the momentous occasion by giving the episode an extended runtime of 74 minutes, instead of the normal 60 minutes.

Additionally, Starz will run a mini Outlander marathon comprised of the first five episodes of season 3. It sounds like the perfect opportunity to relive some of your favorite moments of the season so far, or to catch up on any episodes you might have missed!

As exciting as the mini marathon is, we’re definitely looking forward to seeing how Outlander uses those extra 14 minutes they’re getting for episode 6 to give Jamie and Claire the reunion they deserve.

Outlander airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Starz.

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
