Within the “Droughtlander”, readers fill the gaps by attempting to resolve the varied threads and plot traces, and the most recent idea is a pivotal one that would fill within the cracks of Claire’s (performed by Caitriona Balfe) tapestry.
Followers have lengthy puzzled precisely who handed down their genes to the 20th Century surgeon, with many satisfied at first it needed to have been her mother and father.
But with Gabaldon repeatedly urging readers to not focus an excessive amount of on the likelihood, it suggests there might be one other particular person to come back out of the woodwork.
However what if Claire’s time-travelling member of the family was the mysterious Grasp Raymond?
The common-or-garden French apothecary had a substantial amount of therapeutic capability and information about numerous concoctions not all individuals within the 18th Century would simply know.
Claire and Raymond grew shut throughout her time in France, and he or she was keen to assist him when the locals grew to become suspicious of his seemingly “magical” items.
Might or not it’s that Raymond was truly a time-traveller, and Claire’s long-lost ancestor?
And if that’s the case, did he know the reality all alongside, therefore being so involved with constructing a powerful bond with Claire?
Taking to Reddit to share their idea, consumer Reamund stated cryptically: “I don’t know easy methods to gray out spoilers, so I’m simply going to be cryptic and hope that works.

“Any likelihood we will run into Claire’s mother and father/household prior to now? If she will be able to journey via the stones, then it should imply that somebody in her household might additionally return via instances.
“I determine it might be her mother and father, as a result of dying in a automotive crash (whereas type of believable) appears a little bit of a stretch. Perhaps that is simply one thing her Uncle Lamb informed her when she was younger and he or she took it at face worth, then he died not lengthy after, so it was by no means introduced up once more. I imply, if her mother and father did journey again via the stones, then Lambert must discover some technique to clarify their disappearance to their younger daughter, therefore automotive crash.
“Both manner – if travelling via the stones is hereditary,” the fan went on. “Then who did Claire inherit the flexibility from? We have seen quite a few members of Jamie’s household, however have not heard a lot about Claire’s.
