The Frasers are back, and hoo boy, they sure look like they’re in for a heap of... dreams about electric lightning? Even though I believe early 20th-century nurse Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and 18th-century Scottish Highlander Jamie (Sam Heughan) are currently living somewhere on the American frontier during the Revolutionary War, or thereabouts?

Look, you watch the trailer for the upcoming season of Outlander and tell me what lights have to do with any of this:

Or you can wait until next summer, when Outlander’s seventh season makes it to Starz, at which point all of our light-relighted questions will hopefully be answered. Based on my extremely limited knowledge of the series, my best guess is that they’ll be used so all the sexy people can see each other’s sexy bodies more clearly when they’re engaging in sexy times. On the other hand, maybe Jamie will finally be traveling to the future Claire keeps talking about, filling his head with these incessant dreams of light sources that aren’t reliant on fire or that great day-ball in the sky? Like Jamie, we can but dream.
