Tensions rise between Loyalists and Patriots, and the war hasn’t even started yet. Let’s look at the best moments from Outlander Season 6, Episode 5.

The story takes place in two main locations once more. Claire and Jamie head to Wilmington, while Bree and Roger remain at the Ridge. Both stories are just as important as each other, and both help to push various other storylines forward.

Jamie has to deal with tensions rising in Wilmington, while Roger deals with talk on the Ridge. The women deal with the knowledge of the future and things to come. And all the while, we get to meet a heroine of Scotland. Flora MacDonald speaks to the people to encourage loyalty to the Crown.

It’s time to look back at the episode. Here are the five best moments throughout the episode.

5 best moments from Outlander Season 6, Episode 5

Malva’s devious ways

We knew up to this point that Malva was up to something. This episode gives us a few more clues as to what she is up to exactly. We get to see that the Sin Eater is dead, and she’s making use of his body.

Remember when she mentioned her mom was executed as a witch? Well, it looks like Malva picked up some skills, and she isn’t too squeamish when it comes to chopping dead fingers off for love charms.

Marsali realizing Bree’s secret

Brianna tells Roger she’s pregnant during the episode, but I love the scene afterward. Marsali immediately realizes that Bree is pregnant, and she makes a comment about it. Bree is sad that the cousins won’t get a chance to play together since Marsali is moving to New Bern.

Marsali is sure that she’ll be back. She knows that the cousins will all get to meet. I love how this bond has grown, and this moment made that clear.

The Beardsley twins continue to be protective

Lizzie faints during the episode. She’s had another malaria attack, and that means she needs to get Lizzie back to the Big House to administer medicine. Who will do it? The Beardsley twins of course.

If Outlander Season 6 doesn’t manage to cover it, I’m hoping to see Season 7 will. The Beardsley twins are mighty protective of Lizzie, and plenty of people are seeing it.

Lord John Grey still helping Jamie

Jamie finally tells John that he’s switching sides. At first, Jamie tries to avoid it and lies, but he realizes he has no choice. It doesn’t help that John has learned where the Sons of LIberty will meet.

Jamie can’t explain it all, but he wants to remain friends with John despite their differing political views. There’s no way John can say no. Of course they can remain friends, and he will do what he can to keep Jamie out of trouble.

The whistling at the end

The very end of the episode brings us a reminder of Outlander Season 5. We hear someone whistling the Colonel Bogey March, which means someone from the future is in the past. Claire hears it, but it’s only for a fleeting moment and then it’s done.

Well, we get to see who was whistling. It’s a dark-haired man who has stolen one of Flora MacDonald’s emeralds. Get ready for a time traveler from Season 5 to return.
