Apparently, Sam has been spotted filming some scenes that have to do with the battle of Culloden because he's a bloody mess in this picture and in some other. Plus he looks like the Jamie we know, instead of a slightly aged Jamie.
Check out these images, some aren't from Outlander but a few are.
And a BTS photo of Sam getting bloody. I know it's fake and yet I feel like I need to hold Jamie and make it better... see I said Jamie not Sam ;-).
