“Sing me a song of a lass that is gone. Say, could that lass be I? Merry of soul she sailed on a day over the sea to Skye.”
If anyone has watched Outlander on Starz, you know this song by heart and know the story behind it: Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) fell through time to 18th century Scotland while on her second honeymoon in 1944.
At the end of the first season, Claire and Jaime Fraser (Sam Heughan) head to France in order to figure out a way to stop the war, which would end the Highlander lifestyle, killing off Jaime.
At the beginning of the second season, Claire is seen on the ground and attempts to figure out where and when she is. After asking a man what year they’re in, she realizes that she fell back through time to 1946, two years later.
Claire reveals to Frank that she was married while she was in Scotland and was pregnant with Jaime’s child, and Frank insists that he could raise the child, as he has always wanted one but is sterile.
