Speaking to Gold Derby, Sam explained: “When I read these scripts and think about it, he keeps talking about it, Jamie and I always feel like he knows.

“He’s not afraid of death and he’s seen it a number of times, most particularly I think in Culloden, he saw the corridor and whatever is beyond that and he got pulled back. There’s something about Jamie and death, he understands it, he’s lived around it and he’s very much at ease with it. So, therefore, I think he might even see the signs around him where he’s like, ‘These things keep happening you know it can’t be much longer.’”

But dinna fash, Outlander fans! It sounds like this is all Sam’s speculation, as he jokily added: “This is all literally me, I don’t know myself, but I’m just questioning it as we keep getting these scenes that keep coming up.”

Will Jamie die in season seven?

Caitriona Balfe, who plays Claire, has also opened up about when Claire and Jamie might die on the show, telling Digital Spy: "I think it has to be a Romeo and Juliet moment, right, where we are both together. Or a Naoise and Deirdre moment where Jamie and Claire sort of lie down together and slowly drift off.

"I don't think one can survive without the other and I don't think Claire will leave him at all. Nobody is eternal, so at some point someone is going to have to croak it so they might as well do it together!"
