Outlander Season 6, Episode 6 brought us a shocking turn of events. As rumors spread across the Ridge, a body turned up in Claire’s gardens.

Initially, Outlander Season 6, Episode 6 was all about a sickness that spread across the Ridge. Claire suffered, but a near-death experience was the least of her worries. There was something far more serious to deal with as rumors spread across the Ridge.

Malva shared that she’s with child, and it turns out that it’s Jamie’s baby. Well, that’s what she shared with everyone, but we all know deep down that it isn’t true. Jamie wouldn’t have an affair. There are plenty of other men who it could be, including Young Ian.

However, before even that could all come out, there’s a death on the Ridge. Claire woke up from one of her ether stupors to find a body in her garden.

Is Malva really dead on Outlander Season 6?

That body belonged to Malva. It’s pretty clear from the state of Malva’s body that she’s dead and not coming back. Not only did she not have any color to her body, but her throat was cut. There was a lot of blood around her neck, and there is absolutely no way that she could survive that.

Claire didn’t even try to save Malva. Instead, the focus was on the baby. Claire decided to perform an emergency c-section in an attempt to save the baby. There was a chance, depending on how long Malva had been dead, that the baby would be alive.

Sadly, that wasn’t the case. Claire attempted CPR, but the baby was dead, too. We know from the promo that mother and child will be buried together.

Who killed Malva? We know where the blame will lie, but could it have been Claire or Jamie? Certainly not. Maybe the real father of Malva’s baby.

Next. Was Malva and the fingers storyline in the Outlander books?. dark
