Jamie got to see Flora MacDonald and attended a Sons of Liberty meeting in Outlander Season 6, Episode 5. Here are his three top moments.

There was a lot going on throughout Outlander Season 6, Episode 5, both off the Ridge and on. For Jamie, it was all about his decision to now switch sides. However, it has to be in secret for the time being. There will be a time he officially makes the switch, but only a few select people know for the time being.

This episode also saw a party for Flora MacDonald. It was time for her to speak out in support of the Crown, but it turns out she and Jamie have a bit of a history. Let’s look into the events of Outlander Season 6, Episode 5 to pick out Jamie’s top moments.

3 best Jamie moments in Outlander Season 6, Episode 5

Reminiscing with Flora MacDonald

We get a cute moment at the start where Claire mentions that Jamie had a crush on Flora. Well, it turns out the two knew each other. They got to play together as kids, and we see this moment of them reminscing.

It’s cute to see things like this. There is a need for these lighter moments, especially as tensions continue to rise in the Colonies.

Explaining why the Jacobites are on the Crown’s side

Claire doesn’t quite understand how the Jacobites would now choose to fight on the side of the Crown. Well, Jamie gets it. If it wasn’t for knowing how the war would play out, he would choose the Loyalist side.

I love that we see this depth to Jamie. We also get to understand why those who had once fought against the Crown would choose to fight with it when it came to the Revolutionary War. It’s also a bit easier to understand Jamie’s issues with going against the Loyalists. He is going against the choice he would have made only because he knows the future, and he can’t share that with anyone but Claire.

Needing to tell Lord John Grey what he’s going to do

He can’t just let John believe that he’s loyal. This is a man Jamie trusts, and he shows that by telling John that he is going to meet with the Sons of Liberty as one of them. This isn’t to bring them down.

John could have had Jamie arrested. Instead, Jamie manages to get John to give those wanting freedom a chance. He also makes it clear to the Sons of Liberty that he’s not interested in attacking people with opposing political viewpoints. Maybe it’s something we could all learn from!
