Possible sneak peek at Season 3?  
Sam Heughan recently posted a photo on Twitter of him holding up of of the Outlander trading cards (from Cryptozoic) which he'd autographed. (More details about the trading cards here.)

What was interesting (to me at least) is that in the pic, he's being made up with blood. What wasn't clear is if this was a recent pic, e.g. taken that same day, so of him being made up for Season 3 filming. Some replied to that tweet speculating it was a pic taken during season 2 filming, probably the Prestonpans episode. Personally, I don't think it's from Prestonpans because Sam has some facial hair going on that I don't recall from that episode. Sam didn't elucidate either way. However, if it is a season 3 pic, perhaps it's a hint of how the season will open -- maybe same way as the book:

[Spoiler (click to open)]after the battle of Culloden, when Jamie regains consciousness lying injured on the battlefield.

That's some impressive sleuthing - I would never notice the absence or presence of Sam's facial hair between single episodes, unless we're talking full beard.

So this is from Prestonpans:

To me the facial hair looks different. In Prestonpans it looks more like a five o'clock shadow but then in the above image it looks more grown out.

But at the beginning of Prestonpans it does look like Sam has a bit of facial hair going:

So in conclusion... I have no idea.

Either way I really hope season 3 opens the same way the book did.
