2. Claire didn’t kill Malva Christie

Malva Christie was found dead in Claire’s garden. Claire was completely knocked out from the ether at the time, and she had a drug-fuelled dream of killing the girl. She didn’t. Malva’s death is not her fault.

However, Claire is currently facing trial for murder. Everyone thinks she’s guilty. Richard Brown just wants revenge for what happened to Lionel, while the Protestants of the Ridge view Claire as a witch and want her gone. So much for being thankful to the woman who is helping to keep them alive and well—and giving them a place to live!

The only person who doesn’t seem to think Claire is guilty is Tom Christie. He traveled with the Browns to ensure Claire’s safety, and he gave Claire some money when she was taken to Wilmington’s prison cells.

Who did kill Malva? That’s sure to come up in Outlander Season 7.

3. Young Ian gained some closure

During the fifth season, Ian returned from the Mohawk a very different man. It was clear he was holding onto some sort of grief but he wasn’t ready to talk about it. It all came out in Outlander Season 6. The Mohawk were visiting when Ian and Jamie went to see a local tribe.

It turns out that Ian and Emily were happy but they couldn’t have children. Emily ended up choosing someone else while an Elderwoman believed that Ian’s spirit was too strong for the babies to develop. He was asked to leave the tribe, so he and Rollo went back home.

During a duel between others, Young Ian decided it was time to let go of the past. He gained some closure, and that is going to be important moving on. Ian is ready to allow someone else into his heart, and we know who that person is going to be. There’s a young Hunter girl coming into the story.
