Sam's character then says passionately: "But you... you were there with me. In the present. I saw you. It's what got me through it. You were always with me. Sometimes I think you're an angel Claire," before the pair then embrace with a kiss, as Claire says: "Would an angel do this?"
The 41-year-old cheekily addressed the romantic moment in his caption, as he quipped: "I know what Jamie got for Xmas!!!!!!!" before adding: "An Xmas Angel. Happy holidays all. See you in March @outlander_starz." Needless to say, Sam's followers and die-hard Outlander fans were thrilled with the sneak peek at the new episodes.

Meanwhile, Sam teased what fans can expect in the new season earlier this week. Chatting via the show's official Twitter account, he explained: "I think Jamie's past almost catches up with him slightly or comes back to haunt him. We meet some characters who come back into Jamie's life, and some are good, and some are more unsettling.

"This season we've had the build up to this War of Independence, this revolution. Jamie's been on the side of the British, he knows they're the losing side. As we get closer to that point, stakes are higher. Not only as the country as a whole, but in Fraser's Ridge as well. A revolution in the home as well."
