In the books, Fergus and Marsali go through a difficult time when their fourth child, Henri-Christian is born with dwarfism. While both adore their newborn son, his arrival is met with a cruel reaction from some of the townspeople.

In the book, Fergus is in so much despair over his son's future, and at his own helplessness at protecting him, that he tries to kill himself, but is stopped at the last moment by Jamie. In the new clip, Jamie can be seen comforting a devastated Fergus in the forest, hinting that this moment from the book could well be portrayed in the popular series.

Did you spot the moment in the clip?

Catriona Balfe, who plays Claire, added: "Everyone's starting to find their feet and some are still struggling. The underlying theme of the season is that there's a lot more turmoil here." Even more turmoil than season five, where Jamie's leg is nearly amputated by a snake bite, Roger only just survives being hanged from a tree and Claire is kidnapped and assaulted? We don't know how much more we can take!
