In the first episode of Outlander, fans glimpse a ghost watching Claire Fraser (played by Caitriona Balfe) as she stays at a hotel in Inverness with then husband Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies). It’s later revealed the ghost belonged to Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) who goes on to marry Claire. The reason why Jamie’s ghost was watching Claire will not be revealed until the final ever episode, however fans often speculate what it means.

One theory is Jamie pulled Claire back into the past when she visited the stones at Craig Na Dun.

Fans noticed Forget-Me-Nots surrounding the stones and thought they could remind Claire of Jamie therefore pushing her to time travel.

Now one avid viewer has come up with a new reason for the Forget-Me-Nots being planted at the stone circle and it’s heartbreaking.

They explained the flowers are associated with dementia and are featured in the logo for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Redditor sapereaude wrote: “Wondering if this is a hint that one of the characters (Jamie or Claire?) might develop dementia, as we know the story ends in 1800 (at which point both would be quite old making dementia likely).

“Would just like to add, totally hope I’m wrong and this is not the case because dementia is totally heartbreaking.”

Could Jamie plant the flowers to remind Claire of their love for one another?

Other fans were quick to respond to the theory, with one replying: ”I think Jamie planted the forget me nots before he dies because Claire told him that’s why she went back to the stones.

“And so he planted the flowers there to make sure she went back to him.

“So the flowers he planted seeded and kept producing flowers there.”

Another argued: “I am not sure how long it has been the Alzheimer’s logo but they didn’t start the forget me not days event until early 2000s.

“The first book was published in 1991. I think this theory is very unlikely.”

The latest theory comes after it was announced the Christie family will arrive on Fraser’s Ridge in season six.

The family consists of Tom Christie (Mark Lewis), who knows Jamie from their time at Ardsmuir, his son Allan (Alexander Vlahos) and his niece Malva (Jessica Reynolds) who he raised as his own.

Fans of the Outlander novels know the Christies cause quite bit of trouble for the Fraser family, particularly Malva.

Actress Jessica teased: ”So I’m playing Malva Christie, I’m 1/3 of the Christie family.

“She’s kind of in awe of Claire I think when she gets to the ridge, she’s heard so much about Jamie and she expects him to kind of be the hero of her story and then she sees the woman and she’s like, ‘Oh no, I’m more interested in that.’

“We kind of start off with a very innocent, kind of eager to learn, you know, she’s got the world in front of her, she thinks this is her kind of chance to blossom, and become a woman potentially like Claire.

“And then, lots of stuff gets in the way and gets in the mix so it’s going to be fun.”

Outlander seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Starz and Amazon Prime Video now.
