San Diego Comic-Con 2015
San Diego Convention Center
I had to leave Ballroom 20 after the TV Guide Favorites panel due to a friend’s panel at 1pm at the San Diego Library. After his panel, I raced back to Ballroom 20 in an attempt to get inside in time for the Grimm panel at 3pm. The Grimm, Outlander, and Hannibal panels (here\’s my recap of the Hannibal panel) were back to back in Ballroom 20 beginning at 3pm, and I really wanted to see all of them. I managed to make it into Ballroom 20 about halfway through the Grimmpanel, and was able to move up a little bit for the Outlander panel.

The best part is Sam Heughan fulfilling his part of a friendly bet between he and Colin O’Donaghue (Hook on ABC’s Once Upon A Time) regarding the EW Alpha Male contest. Sam dressed as O’Donaghue’s Captain Hook on stage, and Caitriona Balfe eagerly volunteered to put black “guyliner” on Sam including giving him a little more facial “hair.” He stayed in that outfit for the short time left of the panel. It did provide a little discomfort for him when he was asked about performing the rape scene near then end of the season in Outlander. He admitted that he felt a little uncomfortable to address the topic when he was “dressed like this.” I think that’s a perfectly valid and understandable feeling to say the least.
