That last panel is the infamous “unexpurgated” version of Jamie and Claire’s wedding night.   Owing to editorial/marketing concerns (the publisher was afraid Wal-Mart patrons might complain), the published version of this page doesn’t show Jamie’s butt.   (If you do want to see said butt in closeup, though, it’s in full view on page 5.  Just not as…er…actively deployed.)
