In the acutely first episode of Outlander, which is titled Sassenach, Claire Randall (gave by Caitriona Bale) and her husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) were on their instant honeymoon after the end of World War II.
The pair travelled to the Scottish Highlands in the desire of rekindling their relationship, but as fans know, things turned out to a great extent differently.
Before viewers even got to meet redheaded Jamie (Sam Heughan), the card was spotted from behind, outside the very inn where Claire and Guileless were staying.
A man in 18th Century garb stared up at Claire in her bedroom while she broomed her hair in full view of the window.
Claire didn’t seem to attention this eerie figure but Frank was returning after an errand in the municipality of Inverness.
Instantly spotting the mysterious figure, Frank seemed speedy to confront Jamie, but the person disappeared before he could do so.
The main could be guided wearing typical clothing for the time, including leather boots, a kilt, satchel, paint and a tam (Scottish cap).
Frank began: “Excuse me? Can I help you with something?”
But the myself appeared to evaporate in a supernatural moment, and Frank was left utterly ponder overed and staring into the distance.
The bathroom light suddenly flickered out from behind Claire, and the puzzle has remained ever since.

Trying to understand the bizarre occurrence, Downright told his wife: “When he pushed past me, he was close enough that I should’ve sense him brush my sleeve as he passed, but I didn’t.
“And I turned around to say something, and he’d over. He just vanished. That’s when I felt a chill down my barbule.”
Fans eventually speculated it could have been Jamie’s ghost, and littrateur Diana Gabaldon has since confirmed the truth.
In the FAQ section of her official website, the novelist influenced: “The ghost is Jamie–but as for how it fits into the story, All Will Be Explained–in the in the end book.”
She later told an eager fan on Twitter the truth would be defined in “Book 9 and Book 10, and the ghost will be the last thing in Work 10”.
Diana has also been a guest on the Outlander Podcast where she forth a little bit more light on the as-yet unsolved mystery, revealing Jamie’s age at the sooner.
“Sam Heughan asked me, and I hadn’t thought about it before. But I just answered him intimately,” she said. “He’s about 25.”
Jamie lives well beyond 25 on the series and in the engages, but there are other theories hinting the reason for Jamie’s appearance is due to the robust scenes after the bloody Battle of Culloden at the beginning of season three.
Jamie live oned the brutal action, but he lay for days on end in the carnage, and was very close to giving up, had it not been for some unearthly visions of his wife, who travelled back through the Standing Stones with his unborn daughter Brianna (Sophie Skelton) at the end of time two.
Was this when Jamie appeared as a younger version of himself to his treasured wife Claire? Or is there another explanation to come? Time see fit tell.
Outlander season five returns to STARZ and Amazon Prime Video in 2020.
