‘Outlander’ Season 6 Finale Leaves Claire and Jamie in Sad Familiar Territory – Deadline

SPOILER ALERT: The following story reveals key plot points from the season finale of Starz’s Outlander.

starz’s foreigner wrapped up its sixth season tonight and SO many questions left unanswered — yes, that was indeed the finale, one for a season that was cut short due to the pandemic.

But if there’s one fandom that’s proven to be (mostly) patient, it’s those devoted to the timeless love story of Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and her lover Jamie (Sam Heughan), one once again threatened by divorce. .

The episode titled “I Am Not Alone” begins as Richard Brown (Chris Larkin) and his men, with guns drawn, arrive at Fraser’s house to arrest Claire for the murder of Malva Christie (Jessica Reynolds). But Jamie won’t let her go without a fight. A firefight ensues and the pair must wait until nightfall, when more ready for battle will arrive.

To keep Claire busy in the midst of a tremendous amount of stress, he thinks back to all the times he came close to death and somehow survived. “Do you think you have 9 lives?” Claire asked him. He replied, “I hope so.”

A nap is interrupted when villagers arrive to make sure Claire is arrested and they won’t go quiet. Many of the same people who were welcomed to Fraser’s Ridge by Jamie Fraser herself are now throwing rocks at Claire, accusing her of being both a witch and a murderer without trial or proof. No good deed goes unpunished, you might say.

Nevertheless, the people want justice for Malva, a woman who claimed to be pregnant with Jamie as a result of an affair they shared behind the back of his wife, who was also Malva’s mentor. The pack is led by Malva’s father Tom (Mark Lewis Jones), who assures the Frasers that they are safe in Brown’s hands and will ensure that by traveling to Wilmington, where she will face trial for her alleged crimes.

For some unknown reason, neither Claire nor Jamie Tom nor any of the angry villagers have told that Malva had slept with at least two men, including Young Ian (John Bell), who was ready to marry her and the father of to become her child. Unfortunately, someone had other plans and killed the Reverend’s daughter, but the episode doesn’t reveal who.

Somewhere far away, Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger Mack (Richard Rankin) share one of the episode’s few moments of happiness. They finally have confirmation of their son’s parentage thanks to a lice infestation. Jemmy gets a short haircut that reveals a unique mole on his scalp that matches Roger’s. An adorable Jemmy also shares a sweet message with the baby growing in his mother’s tummy about how much he already loves them.



Back with the Frasers, Young Ian miraculously found his aunt and uncle and vows to seek help. It won’t arrive soon enough, though, as Claire and Jamie have been separated at the behest of the treacherous Richard Brown.

Tom promises Claire her husband is safe and will go home, but he believes Brown’s word on the matter, which is not worth much. Tom continues the journey with Claire who is unwilling to check on Jamie’s well-being, which is the only choice at this point. They both know she’s as good as dead if he went after Jamie.

The truth is, Brown wasn’t actually lying. He had a ship ready to take Jamie home – to Scotland. But before he can leave, Young Ian arrives with the Cherokee to save his uncle’s time, just in time.

“I told you I’d fight you, Bear Killer,” Chief Bird (Glen Gould) tells Jamie.

Jamie again escapes unscathed with an uncertain future ahead of him.

Season 7 of Abroadr is already in production in Scotland.
