Great Big Lockdown Survey: Tell us what life's like for you by answering THESE questions

The latest instalment of Starz series Outlander saw Stephen Bonnet (played by Ed Speelers) kidnap Brianna Fraser (Sophie Skelton) and reveal his plan to start a family with their son Jemmy at River Run. When Brianna refused to comply, Bonnet decided to try and sell her but fortunately, his plan failed and he was caught by Roger MacKenzie (Richard Rankin). Bonnet was then set to be killed by drowning to pay for his crimes but Brianna shot him in the head in a mercy killing. But is this really the end of Bonnet?

Well, it looks as though Bonnet is pretty dead following Brianna's unexpected move.

However, actor Ed hinted he could make a return to the popular series in a flashback or another storyline.

He explained: "Outlander, as the producers have joked with me, has quite the record of doing flashbacks, and of bringing people back. So, never say never.

"I would love to work with these people again in some capacity, whether it be on this, or on something else, who knows."
