Sophie Skelton, who portrays Brianna in the much-loved Starz series Outlander, has dropped a rather unsettling clue about what's on the horizon for the thrilling seventh season.

Following the first segment of the latest instalment which aired last August, Outlander devotees have been left on edge, eagerly waiting to uncover what happens next for over a year now.

When the story picks up again this November, Sophie's character, Brianna, along with her husband Roger MacKenzie (played by Richard Rankin) face heartbreak following the disappearance of their son Jemmy (Blake Johnston Miller).

Although the little boy isn't dead, he has essentially vanished when it seems he has been transported back in time by Rob Cameron (Chris Fulton).

After making the monumental decision to leave Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) behind them in the past, Roger and his ancestor William Buccleigh MacKenzie (Graham McTavish) venture back through the stones once more.

Thus, leaving Brianna in the present day with her daughter Mandy, counting on the time-travellers to somehow trace down Rob.

However, recent remarks from actress Sophie Skelton suggest that the MacKenzies might not ever recover their missing son.

"All of these things that could be going on, I think Brianna's mind's just at 100," she commented during interviews with the producers of Starz.

"And she doesn't know what she's left with.

"She's kind of had this huge family and now it's just her and Mandy. And that might be the rest of her life.

"It's heartbreaking, but we'll see what happens," she concluded.

Brianna is definitely concerned that was the last she's seen of her husband, let alone their son, as travelling through time is always incredibly risky.

Hopefully, this will be resolved in the next set of eight episodes, but fans have already been warned the last chapters of Outlander will have them reaching for the tissues.

Speaking to Square Mile, Sophie's co-star Richard recently admitted: "It was a very emotional read-through."

"We had photos up from all the past seasons of the show.

"You can feel the nostalgia and what it meant to people. There were a lot of tears in the room that day."

Outlander season 7, part 2 premieres Friday, November 22 on Starz.
