We’re getting ready for Outlander Season 7 by looking at characters potentially returning. Will the Bugs be on the list of returning characters?
Caution: There are spoilers for the end of A Breath of Snow and Ashes and into An Echo in the Bone in this post. Don’t read if you haven’t read ahead and don’t want to know the details!
The Bugs haven’t been the most important characters in Outlander yet, but they are consistent. Mrs. Bug routinely shows up throughout the fifth and sixth seasons, and we see Mr. Bug every now and then. There must be a reason these smaller characters turn up so frequently in the story.
Does it mean they’re going to get a bigger role to play in a later season? Will we see them return in Outlander Season 7?
The Bugs should be back in Outlander Season 7
There is one breadcrumb from Outlander Season 6 that suggests the Bugs will return. It’s all about the gold.
So far, Jocasta has just mumbled something about the gold. One of her slaves was concerned about Jocasta’s mental well-being because of it, but it looks like Jamie has an idea of what this gold is all about. If this is a real breadcrumb, it does suggest that the French gold storyline from A Breath of Snow and Ashes is about to show up.
This storyline tells us all about the missing French gold from Culloden. It turns out that Hector Cameron took some of it, and Jocasta had been hiding it in her tomb the whole time. However, the gold is stolen but nobody knows who by.
Well, it turns out that the Bugs are involved. This leads to the end of Mrs. Bug, and that leads to Arch going on a revenge mission and ending up killed too. All this takes place at the end of Books 6 and 7, so we should see it play out in Outlander Season 7.
