Open-ended episodes, like those from Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, have become something of a staple for Netflix and its main streaming platform, Hulu.
The Netflix original series stars Outlander creator Diana Gabaldon as Claire Randall and her daughter, Claire Randall’s (Kaitlin Olson) brother, Jack Randall.
But, like many Netflix original shows, Outlander opened with a cliffhanger that ultimately did not allow viewers to escape the drama.
In Season 5, out of the seven episodes released so far, only three open-ending episodes, both of which aired in early May, have been made available online.
Those open-ends have been largely critical, especially when viewed through the lens of Netflix’s new series The Defenders.
The Defenders is a Marvel-based Netflix series created by D.C. Comics writer Phil Noto.
The show is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has seen the introduction of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America and Thor.
The series is currently in its fourth season, and has so far spawned two Marvel TV series: Daredevil and Jessica Jones.
The first two seasons of the series were both produced by Marvel Television, which was responsible for bringing the Defenders to Netflix.
In The Defenders, Luke Cage is the titular Defenders, while Jessica Jones is Jessica Jones’ friend and mentor, Jessica Jones herself.
The season-one premiere episode of the Netflix series was entitled “Tyrant” and it opened with Jessica Jones, who is on the run from the titularity-hunting Baron Strucker, and the rest of the Defenders fighting for their lives against the mysterious “Tower of Doom.”
The Defenders Season 5 premiered on April 1, and viewers are still eagerly awaiting the episode to come online.
But for some, Season 5’s opening sequence has given them the cold shoulder.
“They’re just not telling us anything,” a viewer told Deadline.
“It’s a bit jarring.”
The opening sequence of Outlander, which is set around the time Claire Randall is trying to get back into the world of royal hunting, is set to debut on Netflix on May 2.
That means fans will be able to watch the first episode of Outlanders season 5 before any episodes of The Defenders season 5 have been released online.
However, the season-five opening sequence, which premiered in late March, is not currently available online for anyone to watch.
The show’s first episode was titled “Open-Ended” and is set during the time of Claire Randall, who lives in Scotland, and Jack Randall, a Scotsman who’s on the hunt for his daughter Claire’s (Liam Cunningham) brother Jack.
After the introduction, Claire has her own conversation with her father, who’s now on the lookout for his missing daughter.
“She says she wants to tell me everything, but that’s what she does,” Claire says.
“I’m like, What the fuck?
This isn’t important.
I’m just doing what I do.”
“I didn’t think anything was important about that conversation, but I’m not really sure,” Claire continues.
“He’s like, ‘You want to go find Jack?
He’s been on the phone with someone else and they’re waiting for you.’
And I’m like what?
She says she’s been looking for him for a long time.
And I was like, Oh my God.
Claire’s dad asks Jack what happened to his daughter, and she says that her father has been searching for her for a very long time now.
“I thought she was gonna say, ‘Jack is dead.’
But she says, ‘Yeah, but there’s something about you.
You know, the way you talk to people.
I think you’re a great man.
And you’re still looking for me.’
I was just like, I have to get on with this.
And he goes, ‘But I think I know where you are.’
I went, ‘I know where I am.
Where is Claire?’
And he said, ‘Well, you’re looking for her in Scotland.'”
Claire continues, “I went, I’m gonna tell you this.
I don’t wanna go looking for Claire.
I mean, it was my job.
But it’s like I’m in this world and I don.
I want to find Jack.
And this is my job, this is who I am.”
The next line from Claire is in a line that has since become the basis of much of the controversy surrounding Outlander’s opening scene.
Claire says, “We’ve been looking all this time for you.”
Jack replies, “No, I mean we’ve been in Scotland all these years.
We know you’re here.”
Jack continues, “[I’m] not in a position where I’m going to go looking, ‘Oh, yeah, that
