Jamie had a lot to deal with at the Ridge, and it wasn’t just about Malva’s murder in Outlander Season 6, Episode 7. Here’s a look at his top moments.

There is no rest for the wicked at Fraser’s Ridge. That’s something Jamie has to figure out during the new episode when he realizes he has more to deal with than just figuring out who murdered Malva. If only finding a murderer was the only scandal at the Ridge.

During Outlander Season 6, Episode 7, Jamie learns a few truths. They’re truths that we’ve seen throughout the season, even if they’ve not all been right in our faces. It’s time to look back at Jamie’s best moments from the episode.

3 best Jamie moments in Outlander Season 6, Episode 7

Finding the Beardsley twins

We start with a truth that has been staring at us but not all too obviously throughout the season. Lizzie comes clean about what she’s been up to with the Beardsley twins. Yes, both of them. That’s not something Jamie wanted to hear.

However, Jamie doesn’t initially stick around to learn the full truth. He wants to find the twins. One of them will marry her or both of them will die. It’s only later that he finds out the full truth and figures out what to do. Lizzie will marry one of them. Well, Lizzie has other ideas on that matter, even if Jamie isn’t too happy about it.

This whole thing shows that Jamie cares for Lizzie. He wanted to avoid another scandal at the Ridge, but he also wanted to make sure Lizzie was cared for and the right thing was done.

Supporting Roger’s decision

Roger figures out what he’s going to do in the past. He wants to become a minister, and he talks to Jamie about it first. Jamie is immediately supportive.

However, Roger has a few concerns. He’s killed a man. Jamie is the one who points out that “Thou shalt not kill” isn’t quite the right translation. The Greek and Hebrew say “Thou shalt not murder,” and Malva was murdered but Roger didn’t murder anyone. He killed in someone’s defense.

Jamie is also happy that Roger isn’t doing this to be a coward and avoid fighting. Roger knows he can’t be in an army, but he can defend his people, and that’s good enough for Jamie.

Not arguing at the funeral

I know a lot of people would expect me to put Jamie and Claire’s moment toward the end of Outlander Season 6, Episode 7 as one of his top moments, but there’s something else that stood out for me. It was at the funeral when Tom, Allan, and Hiram went to carry Malva’s casket out of the funeral. They needed a fourth man.

Jamie went to do it, but Allan refused to let that happen. Jamie didn’t argue. In fact, he just nodded and stepped back, allowing Young Ian to step in.

Jamie had already said to Claire that they wouldn’t dignify the rumors with a response. But this moment was more than that. It was him understanding that Allan and Tom were grieving. He wasn’t going to make noise about it.
