Since Bree found out she was pregnant, she has wondered who the father is. Did the Outlander Season 6 finale finally officially confirm Jemmy’s parentage?

Since Outlander Season 4, there’s been the question over who Jemmy’s biological father is. Of course, Roger accepted Jemmy as his own. It didn’t fully matter what blood and DNA said. He claimed Jemmy as his own at his own wedding in front of everyone thanks to Jocasta’s scheming. That didn’t stop the questions.

There was always doubt. At one point, Bree was even sure that Jemmy was Stephen Bonnet’s son. Bonnet even believed her, although that would have likely been linked to Jemmy’s lineage and inheritance than anything else.

The Outlander Season 6 finale brought us probably the most closure on the topic of Jemmy’s parentage than anything will. Especially since there’s no DNA testing in the 18th century.

Jemmy’s father confirmed in the Outlander Season 6 finale

During the Season 6 finale, Jemmy has lice. The only option to get rid of them is to cut his hair, which is when Bree finds a birthmark on his head. She’s concerned about it, but Roger takes one look and brushes it off.

It’s not that Roger is a medical professional. It’s because Roger has the same birthmark. It’s one that forms after birth, though, so more of a mole than anything else. More importantly, it’s hereditary.

Brianna and Roger suddenly realize what this means. Roger is Jemmy’s father. It’s all confirmed as best as it can be in the world of the 18th century in the Outlander Season 6 finale.

Jemmy’s parentage is confirmed in the books in a similar way. It is all through the mole on the head, which is seen when Jemmy gets lice. This is around the rest of the family, though, and not just Brianna. As much as I do love the book scene, I do admittedly love that we get this moment between Bree and Roger as they realize the truth.
