Outlander’s Season 6 Finale Solves One Big Mystery – And Sets Up More

Foreign Season 6 finale spoilers ahead.

The season was very short Foreign this year, but a lot has been packed into these eight episodes, from revelations about Young Ian’s time with the Mohawks and Fergus’ heartbreaking suicide attempt, to Claire’s mysterious fever and her increasing reliance on ether to deal with PTSD.

Of course, Fraser’s Ridge’s biggest upheaval came in the form of the Christie Familyand at the end of episode seven, Claire was accused of the murder of pregnant Malvafollowing accusations that Jamie was the father of her unborn baby.

Let’s find out what happened in that tense season finale (and it goes without saying that it contains spoilers):

What happens to Claire and Jamie?

The season finale begins with a dialogue-free scene set in an American diner in the 20th century, with Claire (we know it’s her because you can see her Fraser wedding ring) and presumably a teenage girl Bree (hiding behind a menu ) being served hamburgers and fries. It may be a brief scene, but the significance of it becomes apparent a bit later.

Back in the 18thcentury, the episode picks up where the previous one left off as the Committee of Safety arrives at the Fraser household to arrest Claire.

She is understandably reluctant to accompany them – not only because they look like foam-mouthed militia, but also because their leader is Richard Brown, the gruff brother of the late and evil Lionel, who kidnapped and raped Claire in season five (and has been the sinister figure taunting her in her nightmares this season).

Claire whispers to housekeeper Mrs. Bug to run for help, and Jamie spots Lizzie and Josiah in the distance running away, hoping to gather more family members to protect them. They can’t come soon enough, however, as one of Brown’s men has already entered the Fraser home. Claire shoots him, while Jamie tries to fight off the men outside.

Soon their house is attacked, and Jamie and Claire rush around the blocking windows with dining tables (although we think they should have put out the candles first) and other furniture as gunfire smash windows, plates and all the other nice things in their house.

Jamie is convinced that Richard Brown is out for revenge after his brother’s death, but Brown says he just wants to take Claire to Salisbury where there is a court so she can stand trial for Malva’s murder. Jamie refuses, and it looks like the Frasers are going to have a long beleaguered night with the Committee waiting outside.

So where are everyone else? Well, Brianna, Roger and her son Jemmy are on a long road to getting Roger ordained minister. Meanwhile, Fergus, Marsali, and their ever-growing brood live in New Bern, where Fergus runs a printing press and has just published his first newsletter, the New Bern Onion (named because it has many layers, you see).

There’s no sign of young Ian either, so Claire and Jamie are left inside the house having dinner calmly (probably realizing they may never get the chance to eat again) waiting for the next attack.

For light dinner conversation, Claire explains the concept of a death row inmate’s last meal to Jamie, and she reveals that her choice would be a cheeseburger, fries, and a coke from the restaurant she used to go with. Brianna – a nod to that Opening Scene. Are the Foreign team trying to tell us that Claire might eat her last meal before being sentenced to death?

It all looks pretty dire – though fans of adorable cat Adso will at least be relieved to see he survived the assault on the house – and it doesn’t get much better when townspeople armed with flaming torches arrive to help the Committee.

A handful of parents show up to support Jamie and Claire, but there aren’t enough of them, and Jamie realizes the only option is for him and Claire to both go with the Committee to Salisbury.

Surprisingly, Malva’s father, Tom Christie, steps in to promise Claire and Jamie’s safety on the trip, and he suggests they leave in the morning so the couple can spend the night in their own beds. cue some late night steam between the Frasers – who presumably feel their chances of having sex in the future are about as likely as another meal.

The next day, the group – with Claire and Jamie in a train car – head for Salisbury, but Richard Brown’s plan quickly changes when he discovers the local sheriff has resigned and no court is being held there.

He decides that the next closest town, Cross Creek, is not an option due to Jamie’s Aunt Jocasta’s influence there, so Wilmington becomes their destination even though it is 200 miles away.

An increasingly emaciated Tom Christie looks guilty for what Claire is going through – especially when they hear Brown spread the word that Claire is a murderer, resulting in the couple’s wagon being stoned by villagers enraged – could it be because he knows Claire is innocent, and also who really killed her daughter Malva?

Hundreds of miles oblivious to all this, Roger and Bree are dealing with something far more mundane: it seems little Jemmy has a case of nits. After they cut off all of his hair as a treatment, Brianna spots a mark on her son’s head that she’s never seen before. She’s worried but Roger isn’t – because he’s the same. The same!

In case we’ve all forgotten, Roger was never sure he was Jemmy’s biological father, because Bree was raped by Stephen Bonnet the same night she first slept with Roger. The mark – since it is hereditary – proves that Jemmy is indeed Roger’s son. So at least someone is having a good time.

Jamie and Claire, meanwhile, are far from happy, but things are looking up as young Ian appears from behind some bushes to let Jamie know that he, his shaggy pal John Quincy Myers and some friends are out. proximity. Jamie and Claire can’t escape though, as it’s all too likely that the townspeople who are looking forward to an entertaining hanging would turn them in if they saw them.

Maybe Jamie should have trusted Ian to get them safely anyway, as the next morning Brown’s men grab Jamie and Brown take Claire to the wagon, determined to get her to Wilmington and the gallows that awaits him.

Tom Christie tries to intervene and makes Brown promise that Jamie won’t be hurt before accompanying Claire to make sure she isn’t killed on the trip.

A few days later, they arrive in Wilmington, which shows signs of unrest as residents fight for independence against the British. Brown takes Claire to jail and declares that he will see her hanged, though Tom Christie promises that he won’t leave her unprotected – not exactly the actions of a man who thinks Claire killed his daughter.

So why didn’t Jamie come to save Claire? Well, he’s kinda tied (literally) to Brown’s men, who are preparing to put him on a ship to Scotland to get rid of the fiery Highlander once and for all.

They didn’t count on Young Ian’s daring rescue, however, and our mohawk-haired hero appears with Myers and their Indian friends just in time, sending a bullet through the hand and head of a bad guy holding Jamie.

The series ends with Ian, Jamie, Myers and their friends crossing the beach, presumably towards Wilmington and an imprisoned Claire.

So will Jamie get to Claire in time? And who killed Malva? It looks like we’ll have to wait until season 7 next year to get answers…
