What if Claire never actually traveled through the stones - but is instead a patient in a mental institution, and her adventures in 18th century Scotland (and Jamie) are a figment of her diseased imagination? Alternatively, some of the occurrences ARE ~real….but not so much real, as interpretations of things that are actually happening to her. For instance, trying to get back to Frank really *is* trying to get back to Frank….only it’s an attempt to rise out of drug-induced stupors, or just past her own mental issues. (PTSD from the war, ‘hysteria’, or whatever.) Jamie could be purely imaginary, or he could be a hospital employee, or a visiting relative of another patient, etc, and Claire overlays her hallucinations onto him.
