Young Ian told his story and Claire tested her ether. Here are the five standout moments from Outlander Season 6, Episode 4.

The new episode, titled “Hour of the Wolf,” was a powerful one. We got to hear Young Ian’s story of his time with the Mohawk. It was devastating, but it was also important. This was the moment he could move forward and into acceptance of his grief.

Meanwhile, we got some excellent smaller moments with other characters. There we also some great elements of A Breath of Snow and Ashes pulled into the story, moments that I wasn’t sure would make it but I’m glad they did.

Now it’s time to look back at the episode. Here are the five best moments, whether they’re ones that made us cheer for characters, or they just push storylines forward or help to make some things make more sense.

5 best moments in Outlander Season 6, Episode 4

Young Ian getting closure

This was a big episode of Ian. He had to face the Mohawk, and that included the man who ended up taking his wife. Ian shared the story with Jamie, and while that was great, there was one moment particularly that stood out for me.

It was the ending when he mentioned to Jamie that he has realized that he can be both Mohawk and Scot. The two parts of him don’t need to fight against each other anymore. Closure and acceptance in his grief has allowed him to embrace both sides.

Brianna sharing knowledge of the future with Jamie

Brianna was clearly struggling with the knowledge of the future while firing guns. She couldn’t hide it when Roger cheered at hitting a target. Jamie noticed this and wanted to know what was wrong.

While Bree had told Ian some of it, she now went into more detail with Jamie. She had to warn him of the Trail of Tears. It’s not like they can do much, but maybe there is something small to save some lives.

Jamie finding a way to warn Bird

That leads us to another important moment in Outlander Season 6, Episode 4. Jamie had to tell Bird what he knew, sharing that the women in his family have dreams of the future. Jamie knew that Bird would respect and accept that.

There isn’t much that Bird can do. This is going to happen after his death. However, he can pass on the message through the generations to make sure the story is known. Even if it’s just his tribe, some people will be saved.

Fergus mentioning the printing business

At the start of the episode, we see Jamie give Fergus a job to head to New Bern. This leads to Fergus reminiscing about the past in a good way. He thinks back to the time they ran a printing business.

This is important as long as the show follows the book. We know that Fergus tried to stay in the printing business in the colonies but nobody would give him work. There’s something Jamie may be able to help him do, and I get a sense we’ll see that in the next episode.

Malva watching Claire and Jamie

The ending to Outlander Season 6, Episode 4 is important. Malva has some sort of scheme going. That’s clear from the way she’s trying to get into lives and learn more. She’s getting as much information about the Frasers as she can.

Malva watching Claire and Jamie in the barn is essential. It explains something in the books that did leave a lot of readers questioning. So, while we may not have liked the little spy, it is a standout moment.
