Starz’s historical series ‘Outlander‘ was created by Ronald D. Moore and is based on the eponymous novel series by Diana Gabaldon. It follows Claire as she travels back in time from the twentieth century to the 18th century to fall in love with a Highland warrior named Jamie Fraser.
Jamie and Claire become embroiled in the political turmoil between the Scots and the English, where they survive several near-fatal encounters.
Jamie’s valiant efforts to protect his wife and fellow soldiers bring him face to face with death multiple times, only to emerge alive each time.
Jamie does the same thing in the 6th season to protect Fraser’s Ridge, raising concerns about his fate. Is Jamie, then, going to die in season 6?
Let us take a look at the possibilities!
SPOILERS AFTER THIS POINT.
Is Jamie Fraser Going to Die in ‘Outlander’ Season 6 Episodes?
Jamie confronts Lionel Brown and his men for abducting his wife Claire in the fifth season of the show.
Jamie’s fury is unleashed upon witnessing the harm they have done to his wife, and it rains as wrath on Brown and his men. After murdering everyone, Jamie transports Lionel’s body to the latter’s brother Richard.
Richard is unconcerned about his brother’s death, but he makes it clear to Jamie that he will not hesitate to murder him when the time is right. Richard and his Committee of Safety loom over Jamie in the sixth season as dark clouds of impending death.
While Richard Brown waits for an opportunity to witness Jamie’s demise, the latter’s life is indeed hanging by a thread.
His new responsibilities as an Indian agent, combined with the smoke of the approaching American Revolution, indicate that he may be forced to draw his sword and load his gun in order to save his life. However, that is not to say that Jamie will perish in the sixth round of the show.
Because Jamie is not killed in the season’s source novel, ‘A Breath of Snow and Ashes,’ fans of the character can anticipate Jamie’s vigour in the upcoming episodes.
Even if Jamie survives, his desire to live in peace with his wife, family, and other tenants may remain unfulfilled.
The Revolution is expected to put his allegiance to the British Crown to the test. His realisation that he is on the wrong side of history may motivate him to wage war against a few unexpected adversaries.
Sam Heughan, who portrays Jamie, revealed in a March 2022 interview that Fraser’s Ridge would degenerate. Jamie may have to sacrifice the settlement he has built in order to save his and his loved ones’ lives.
If the sixth season closely follows the source novel’s narrative, we can anticipate Jamie focusing on the tensions that brew within his settlement.
The introduction of Thomas Christie and the Protestant faith he brings to the Ridge may have dire consequences, most notably undermining Jamie’s and his family’s appeal.
While his admirable relationship with Claire is expected to continue to be strong, the latter’s PTSD may present a challenge for both of them. Jamie may become emotionally conflicted gradually but severely as the Revolution approaches.
While we may see Jamie alive and well by the end of the sixth season, the Scotsman may endure a harrowing emotional ordeal.
With season 7 of the Outlander show already confirmed, Jamie’s demise must be the furthest thing from the minds of the show’s creative minds.
As a result, we believe Jamie will avoid death in season 6 and instead focus on the conflicts that threaten his principles and settlement.
Starz premieres new episodes of Outlander on Sundays at 9 p.m. EST.
