This 'Outlander' Season 6 Set Photo Of Canoes Teases Three Potential Storylines

Come hell or high water, the Outlander cast and crew are doing everything within their power to get Season 6 made — even if that means taking some rather unusual forms of transportation. Outlander actor Caitlin O'Ryan recently took to Instagram to share a photo of canoes, blaming her work tardiness on "traffic." And while it could seem like a rather innocuous image at first, Outlander fans may recognize the significance of canoes in the Outlander series.

The canoes most likely mean the return of the Native American storylines, which weren't part of Outlander Season 5 despite the show still being set in 18th-century North Carolina. But there are three plots from Diana Gabaldon's A Breath of Snow and Ashes that those four canoes could represent. Slight book spoilers ahead.

"James Fraser, Indian Agent"

Sam Heughan may still be holding out to play MI6 agent 007, but Jamie becomes a different type of British agent in A Breath of Snow and Ashes. Major MacDonald recruits Jamie to become an "Indian agent" for the British Crown. He acts as an ambassador to Native American tribes on behalf of the English — giving them gifts in hopes that they'll fight alongside the British when the need arises. With Jamie knowing the outcomes of the American Revolution, Jamie takes on the role less to recruit Native Americans to fight alongside the British and more to stop the despicable Richard Brown from doing it.
