Jamie and Young Ian can’t agree on dealing with the Cherokee in Outlander Season 6, Episode 2. Here’s what to expect in the episode.

Now that Jamie has become an Indian Agent, it’s time to form bonds with the local Cherokee people. Jamie already has some good relations with them anyway, but he needs to strengthen them.

Meanwhile, it’s time for Baby Fraser to make its arrival. Marsali is going into labor, but this is not going to be the easy birth that Felicite seemed to be. Where is Fergus this time?

The promo and synopsis for Outlander Season 6, Episode 2 give us some idea of what to expect. Here’s a breakdown of big storylines.

What to expect on Outlander Season 6, Episode 2

Here’s a look at the promo and synopsis for the episode first. Then we’ll get into our breakdown of everything.

"Ian and Jamie butt heads over Jamie’s reluctance to pass along the Cherokee’s request for guns. The tension between Fergus and Marsali dissipates as Marsali gives birth to their fourth child. However, the joy is short-lived when a discovery is made."

Jamie is worried about what the Cherokee want

As Jamie goes to see Bird, he learns what Bird wants to gain from this alliance. It’s more than just normal trade. He wants guns.

With tensions brewing in the colonies, this request is only natural. However, it’s not a comfortable request. Could Jamie be arming people who become enemies to the Crown? That’s certainly going to be something that he worries about.

Young Ian wants to help the Cherokee

I love that Young Ian is going to get more focus in Outlander Season 6. It looks like Episode 2 is the start of that. We’ll see him unhappy that Jamie doesn’t really want to arm the Cherokee.

Young Ian knows about time travel. He knows a war is coming, and he’s going to ask the time travelers what happens. With the time he spent with the Mohawk, of course he has some allegiance to all Native American tribes. He wants to make sure they’re protected.

Fergus continues to be a concern

When Marsali goes into labor in the promo for Outlander Season 6, Episode 2, Jamie has just one concern. Where is Fergus?

It seems that Fergus is missing a lot more than he’s not. Who will have to go out to find him? What’s Fergus going to be like when someone does find him? Will we get that labor scene from A Breath of Snow and Ashes?

There’s a problem with the baby

Claire notes that there’s a complication with labor. The baby hasn’t moved for hours, she tells Jamie. Even at this point of labor, the baby should still be moving.

Marsali also knows that something is wrong. Yes, pregnancies and labors are all different, but she’ll know if something doesn’t feel right. Claire will listen to her, too. Will this baby be okay? Is something going to happen to Marsali?

Tom wants the surgery after all

Claire offered to treat Tom’s curling hand. He didn’t want the surgery at first, but that changes in Outlander Season 6, Episode 2.

It looks like Claire is going to turn to Malva for some help. Malva is keen to learn about healing, even if the men in her family don’t like it. Allen may foreshadow something in his comment about female healers being viewed as witches.
