11/10 Update: Sprinkled in a few Matt Roberts photos from late November 2013 :)
Previously on Outlander Flashback Monday: Sam Heughan is cast almost immediately as James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser. Fans are satisfied with the selection, but they're all like, "Why you no have Sassenach?" Ron D. Moore's resume basically exudes, "Dinna fash, I speak Klingon." And so Sam's forced to wander this Earth alone for three months until they can locate his Claire. Then one day... BAM... Caitriona Balfe manages to fit her flawless aura into the audition room and it’s a done deal.
Oh, in case you were wondering, back in the 1800s, while listening to "Memory" from the musical Cats, JAMMF decided to go with a lovely scallop-edged border to compliment his and Claire's wedding photo in his scrapbook. "Och, aye, verra nice, verra bonny."
When last we saw Cait and Sam, they were whisked away to Bonny Scotland to begin filming their epic love adventure story of a thousand feels.
Right before their first set visit, fans check in.
Sam and Caitriona horse around on Twitter with War Chief Dougal Mackenzie.
Sam teases his leading lady.
Maril, Graham, and Sam have an adorable exchange about GINGER JASPER:
Sam tickling Jasper's tummy?
I'm going to need a video of that.
On September 20, Sam and Cait take what is most certainly an adorable trip to London.
Lovely Cait can't complain:
The cast is verra pleased so far:
By September 23, production is kicking in to gear. Caitriona is getting ready to start a grueling shoot:
Fans wonder why there hasn't been much Twitter activity. What a needy bunch! ;)
Sam gets a new guitar to annoy the Outlander cast and crew with. This excited little puppy!
Caitriona kicks off her Outlander work week on September 30:
QUEEN CAITRIONA celebrates her 34th birthday with her Outlander family October 4:
And then this adorable Happy Birthday from JAMMF to Claire. Seriously, their banter would warm a (wo)man to the back bone just by reading it.
THEN, Outlander has its first day of shooting!!! Must've consisted of Caitriona's World War II scenes, where she was covered in blood and told Access Hollywood, "I looked like I came out of a scene from Carrie."
You guys! We have the best Claire!
Now, prepare yourselves for gorgeous Scotland location PIC SPAM. God bless our oversharing hero Sam Heughan's heart!

MOAR exchanges from our two leads about an article in The Scotman... I mean, come on... Does it ever stop, the adorableness?
Heart. Eyes. Mother. Fuckers.
Additional proof of how hard our cast is working to bring us quality television with UST and sexy-times—They're surviving the weather and mud!!
@TallShipProds of course!!! Here at Outlander we don't let rain wind and mud cramp our style !!;)— Caitriona Balfe (@caitrionambalfe) October 25, 2013
Equine jokester is looking for more followers and Mr. and Mrs. Fraser are happy to help him out. Oh, you two, I like ye fine.

Seriously. The adorableness between these two is overwhelming!
The first of many jokes about Claire Hair:
No rest for our Queen 'til Craigh na Dun, but just like our heroine, she wants some Rhenish!
I friggin' love this flawless cast!

@Heughan Maybe you should use the extra time to think of holiday gift ideas for your favorite producers...— Maril Davis (@TallShipProds) November 26, 2013
Cheeky Sam response:
Caitriona chose the November 27 Photo of the Day:

tweets this photo on December 14, and some ONTD_SASSENACH detectives have determined Caitriona is the other person in the photo:
Finally, our favorite flaw-free lass has her bags packed ready for the break!
On the next Outlander Flashback Monday: Sam and Caitriona encounter the fanbase for the first time at the Outlander Fan Gathering and meet The Author Formally Known as Herself.
I hope you all enjoy this edition of Outlander Flashback Monday. I might continue adding things, so check back for more. Hopefully this wasn't too long, but me know if there is anything that I missed or would make this weekly post better. Certainly want to include everything unless you all feel it's like No Tweet Left Behind. Thanks to di_elle for help with tracking the tweets. This was kind of when Sam and Cait were in prime banter stage, so there was quite a bit!
