[> The spoiler is inside. It's from Roger's time in the past.>>>>> -- jayn, 15:38:06 08/14/11 Sun

I can't begin to say this as well as Diana but, in a very rough paraphrase, Roger is in the past, he has arrived at Lallybroch and the door is opened by a man who says "Hi, I'm Brian Fraser'.

The whole room gasped.

I got thinking, though. When we last saw Roger he was with Buck, they had just found Roger's dad Jerry and helped him get back to our time. This was a few years after Culloden. When Roger gets to Lallybroch and meets Brian must be before Culloden, which means Roger has travelled a second time, but gone further back.

Cue spooky music.

I'm sorry, but I missed the part where Buck & Roger meet up with Jerry. Where did that come from?

But, how do we know its *that* Brian Fraser? Surely in 200+ years somebody would name a kid after Black Brian?

Or, maybe its just that I would love to know what happened to the family at Lallybroch that it was empty for so long.....
