There were a lot of big decisions to be made in Outlander Season 6, Episode 7. Here are the five best moments from the whole episode.

We always expect penultimate episodes to be big episodes. They tend to leave us on a cliffhanger, getting us ready for the finale. That was certainly the case with Outlander Season 6, Episode 7.

This episode picked up off the back of the sixth episode. We saw the Christies find out about Malva, and of course, that led to rumors spreading around the Ridge. However, there was the opportunity of another scandal thanks to Lizzie and the Beardsley twins.

It’s time to break down the top moments from the episodes. Here are the ones that stood out the most for me.

5 best moments from Outlander Season 6, Episode 7

Claire and Jamie refusing Malva be buried in the woods

The start the episode saw the Christies learn about Malva’s murder. Tom was more concerned about Malva having the opportunity to pray for forgiveness before her death than the actual murder. When he found out the death would have been pretty much instant, he decided she would have to be buried in the woods.

Claire and Jamie immediately stood up for her. There was no way they would allow that to happen. It didn’t matter what had transpired before. They wanted her to have a funeral worthy of the young girl she had been.

Roger figuring out his calling in the 18th century

Since being in the past, Roger hasn’t really known what to do with his life. However, throughout this season, we’ve seen him find his calling. That all came to a head in Outlander Season 6, Episode 7.

Roger spoke to Jamie first, and then he spoke to Bree. He wants to become a minister, and that means heading out to Edenton to get ordained. He never thought this would happen, and it wouldn’t have done had he remained in his own time. However, he’s following his heart, and I’ve loved his development over the last few seasons.

Lizzie keeping a secret to protect the twins

When Young Ian heads out in search for the Bearsley twins, he finds Lizzie in the stables. It’s clear up to this point that Lizzie has been hiding something, but how sinister is it? Was she involved in Malva’s murder? Were the twins?

Well, it turns out that Lizzie was protecting the twins but not because of the murder. She was worried about what people would do to the twins. And I love this naivety. She doesn’t care about what other people think, but she didn’t want the twins to be hurt.

Lizzie figuring out how to keep both twins in her life

Jamie decides that Lizzie will marry one twin and the other will need to leave. The twins draw straws to decide. In the end, it’s Kezzie who gets to marry Lizzie, but she doesn’t want Josiah to be sent away.

So, to get around that, she decides to ask Roger to handfast her and Josiah with Kezzie as a witness. It shows that she can plan ahead when she needs to, but it also shows that the three of them are in love with each other and happy with this polyamorous relationship.

Claire telling Jamie about the ether

At the end of the episode, Claire realizes that she has no choice but to tell Jamie about the ether. She knows now that she didn’t kill Malva, but she’s still seeing Lionel. It’s because if she hadn’t been selfish in coming back to the past, none of this would have happened.

We get to see this moment of emotional weakness in Claire, but really it’s strength. She’s finally opening up to Jamie and leaning on him for support. He doesn’t get angry about the ether. Instead, he helps her see that what she’s brought is goodness to the world through her “selfish” action.
