Luckily, Young Ian came to Jamie's rescue just in time and the episode ends with the duo, along with Myers and some others, riding across the beach. But will Jamie reach Claire in time?

Fans will have to wait for season seven to find out Claire's fate

With Claire's fate uncertain, many fans were left anxiously waiting for the seventh series, with one person commenting: "Thank goodness season seven is filming! I couldn't handle another #Droughtlander like the last one ESPECIALLY after THAT cliffhanger!!!" while another wrote: "I need the rest! Can't wait for #Outlander season seven."

Fans will be happy to know that production for series seven has already begun and so hopefully, we won't have to wait too long for the Frasers to be reunited on screen.
