Since the first season, Outlander fans have been desperately trying to work out how Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan) was able to watch Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) in the 1940s before they had even met. Jamie was also born in the 18th Century so fans have questioned whether he appeared as a ghost or was time travelling. Now a new theory has emerged suggesting Jamie was linked to a patient of Claire’s as she worked as medic during the Second World War.
Fans believe Jamie may have been reincarnated as a soldier in the Second World War as they pointed out several similarities between the two character.
Jamie’s ghost was seen by Claire’s husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) as he went for a walk around Inverness while they were on their belated honeymoon.
As he returned, he spotted a highlander watching his wife and was quick to approach to find out what he was doing.
However, the figure was unresponsive and when Frank turned to follow him, he had disappeared.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
